     Traffic solutions

    After reading the article regarding the intersection at Highways 146 and 53 in the Era on Feb. 4, I made several calls and again went to look at the intersection with my own eyes.  

    I use this area as much as the average citizen does except I always walk in the crosswalks. I tell my grown children if I have an accident there get an extra half million for doing me in at the crosswalk.  

  • Why is the divorce rate so high?

     From the very beginning of time the importance of marriage has been proclaimed in the church because from the very beginning of time, God established the desire that a husband shall leave his father and mother and join with his wife, and the two shall become one in a holy union (Genesis 2:18-25).

  • Senate passes pro-life bill, celebrates Georgia Powers

    By Ernie Harris

     The fifth week of the 2016 Legislative Session in Frankfort was historic in a number of ways. Governor Matt Bevin signed his first piece of legislation, Senate Bill (SB) 4. We also said goodbye to former State Senator and civil rights activist, Georgia Davis Powers.

     Seeking support for retirees

    As a Kentucky Retirement Systems stakeholder, I am gratified by Gov. Matt Bevin’s recognition of the existential threat to the Kentucky employees and state police pension plans. His general fund budget proposal for the upcoming two fiscal years allocates revenue above the full employer contribution to begin addressing this threat.

  • Christian vs. secular music

     I was riding in a car with a younger friend and her pack of teen and pre-teen kids.  One of the kids hollered, “Turn up the radio, Mom, I love this song.”  It was a Christian rock song singing about Jesus.  

  • Work at love

     I have had the privilege and the honor of celebrating over a thousand weddings over the years with many wonderful couples.  My goal is to personalize each wedding by meeting with the couple several times, leading the rehearsal and officiating at the wedding ceremony. My wife and I find it very exciting meeting couples in love, pledging their love and commitment to one another.
