  • Letter: Coach Daniel Johnson - Going the distance
  • Letter: May is National Foster Care Month

    Here in Kentucky, there are children living in deplorable conditions in their own homes – victims of child abuse and neglect. Sometimes we hear their stories when it’s too late. Other times, they are rescued because a concerned family member or neighbor reports the suspected mistreatment and the children are removed from these homes.

    When removed, where do these children go? Is there a warm bed, a good meal and a loving family that awaits to comfort them after their ordeal? Because of parents around Kentucky, there is. 

  • Take a moment to remember

    For nearly 150 years now, our nation has set aside a day to remember those who paid the ultimate price to protect our freedom.

    It is perhaps fitting that Memorial Day, which traces its roots to the Civil War, was itself the source of conflict for so many years. It is believed to have begun in the South, when Confederate widows decorated not only the graves of their loved ones but also those of Union soldiers, knowing their families were grieving as well.

  • Rise above the haters

     We’ve all heard the quote, "Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me."

    But, as most of us have learned, words can hurt. They can hurt us deeply. They can hurt much more than a slap in the face or a punch in the gut. They can hurt our spirit. They can hurt us to our core.
