  • War against illegal drugs is ever-changing

    It has often been said that the war against illegal drugs is an ever-changing battlefield. When we seem to be making headway on one front, another tragically opens up. Over the past dozen years, those “fronts” in Kentucky have ranged from meth and synthetic drugs to prescription pain medicine and heroin.
    According to the annual report the state’s Office of Drug Control Policy released last week, a new name has been added to that list: fentanyl.

  • 'I’ve been everywhere, man'

    I always smile when I hear the Johnny Cash song in which he claims to have been “everywhere, man.” Though I will never be able to spout off those famous lyrics like the man in black, I still find myself tapping my foot trying to pick out all the different places he lists where I’ve been.

    “I’ve been everywhere, man.”

  • Saying goodbye to St. Catharine College

    On June 3, I excused myself from a family function, walked into my house alone and wept. Three days of fielding calls from the media and processing what it meant that St. Catharine College was closing caught up with me.

    None of this is easy. St. Catharine College and its people have my heart.

  • Three people and a whole lot of bull

    By Summer Intern McKenna Dosier

    It's no secret that this presidential race has been a hot topic, but one thing that has hardly been mentioned is agriculture.

    Agriculture has been a neglected industry, often being pushed to the back burner by "more important and popular" issues. But I ask, what could be more important than the industry that feeds the world?
