  • OC's Nuernberger ready for life as Buckeye kicker

    Pressure comes as part of the job when you’re a football kicker.

       And for Oldham County’s Sean Nuernberger, there was plenty of pressure in just securing the job he hopes is his for the next four years.

  • Freedom of speech can be offensive

    There is a reason that freedom of speech is the first amendment to the United States Constitution.  It is because we are really the only country that has such unfettered freedom.

  • We are commanded to be joyful

    A minister was speaking to a Sunday School class about the things money can’t buy.

    Susan Corwin learned how to be brave from riding a horse.

    Her first horse, Brandy, was a “horrible appaloosa” that was more successful throwing Susan off his back than keeping her in the saddle. The day he broke her arm, Susan said, was a watershed moment.

    “I looked up at that horse and knew that I was either going to decide to get back on him or never ride again,” Corwin said.

    She’s been riding ever since.
