  • A PSA for your health

    By Ginger Lumpkin

  • The newlywed checklist

    By Zack Van Zant

     “In marriage do thou be wise: prefer the person before money, virtue before beauty, the mind before the body; then thou hast a wife, a friend, a companion, a second self.”

    -William Penn

  • United we stand, divided we fall

    By Matt Bevin

    A new day is dawning in Kentucky. For the first time in many years, the winds of financial responsibility have begun to blow briskly through the marble halls of Frankfort. These welcome breezes are ushering in the promise of a fresh start for the Commonwealth. 

  • Greet one another with a holy kiss

     A rather legalistic seminary student wanted to have a scriptural basis for everything he did. When he started falling in love he wanted to kiss her, but he just couldn’t find a scripture chapter and verse that seemed to make him feel right about giving her that kiss. So, true to his conscience, he would simply walk her to the dormitory each night, look at her longingly, and then say “Good night.”

  • Not disability, just different

     When I was young – too young to remember how old I was – I was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome.  At the time, it was such a little-known condition that the psychologists I worked with couldn’t recognize it and initially said I had ADHD.  

    Now, people know a bit more.  

  • We must stop wasteful spending now

    By Rand Paul

     Our country is running a deficit – a very serious deficit. We are fiscally broke and there is no end in sight to curb the limitless spending in Washington. I am outraged by the waste that pollutes our government. It makes my blood boil to see money that should be spent defending our country, instead being wasted. 

  • Making it through the rain

    By Ginger Lumpkin

    I sped down the interstate as comfortably as I could in the raging thunderstorm.  Lightning cracked across the evening sky, but I couldn’t stop because I had a dinner date with my girlfriends in Dayton, Ohio.

     ‘Old’ doesn’t mean historic

    Let me get this straight: six people in La Grange can decide how you live in your old home?  I sometimes wonder who died and made them gods.  

    These good people think they are doing us old people, young people and all in between good by saving something old.
