  • ‘Bless me, Father, for I have sinned’

    Several times a week I pass a church that has a sign board out front advertising confessions on Saturdays.
    I confess that when I was a kid I went to a church that had confession booths, only I thought behind the dark wooden doors was either a broom closet or it was where they kept the devil.
    Kids think crazy things, don’t they?
    When I was 7 or so I got to go behind the wooden doors and confess my sins, which mostly consisted of being mean to my sister and brothers and disobeying my parents.

  • Traffic fatalities on the uptick in state, nation

    For nearly a decade now, Kentucky has made significant progress when it comes to reducing the number of traffic fatalities in the state. Totals that topped 900 annually between 2002 and 2006 dropped to 638 in 2013, a number not seen since the late 1940s. 
    That downward trend, unfortunately, has begun to move in the other direction. Last year’s total was 34 higher than 2013’s, and through the first week of this month, we’re 58 ahead of the same point 12 months ago.
