  • The unthinkable happens

    By Erica Osborne

    It's a sadness. A death. A funeral. And sometimes you are angry and sometimes you cry. And sometimes you think you are OK, and then you see one of the Dominican Sisters crying and you start crying again.

  • Strive for greatness graduates

    As our 2016 graduates walk across the stage, I want to take a moment to congratulate them for their hard work and accomplishments.
    This year’s class is entering a world much different than the one I entered as I graduated high school. Technology has vastly changed the makeup of our workforce, and an uncertain economy often makes job hunting a difficult task.

    On Monday, our nation will pause as it has for more than 150 years to remember and pay tribute to those who gave their lives protecting our nation.

  • Tourism news is good in Kentucky
