  • Taking a leap of faith

    By Matt Overing
    Summer intern

    I have always looked up to my brother, but don’t tell him that.
    Four years ago, he was getting hitched. He, at 21, had a full-time job, a fiancé and a dog. He knew what he wanted to do with his life.
    I graduated from Boyle County High School in 2010, and had no idea what I wanted to be or do with myself. I chose the University of Kentucky and selected political science as my major. It felt like an easy option, but I was lost. I didn’t know what I wanted.

  • The real meaning behind Memorial Day

    Memorial Day may be the unofficial kick-off to summer, but as we ready for the upcoming holiday weekend, it is vital that we never forget it is much more than that. It is also a time when we as a nation pause to mourn and to reflect upon those men and women who paid the ultimate price defending our freedom.
    The holiday is nearing its 150th anniversary, and given that it came about in the wake of the Civil War, it seems appropriate that there is still some debate between the North and South about its exact origin.
