  • Church News: Annual psalm of thanksgiving

    Editor’s note: Nancy Kennedy has been writing an annual psalm of thanksgiving since 1999 when she first started writing her column.

    Dear God,

    It’s that time of year when I sit down to compose my annual psalm of thanksgiving. This will be my 16th year of making public my thanks and gratitude to you for yet another year of your faithfulness to me.

    This past year has been difficult in so many ways. At times I’ve felt like a dog’s chew toy, eaten up and slobbered on. I’ve felt pulled and pushed, stretched and torn.

  • Buckling up this holiday makes traveling safer

    Thanksgiving tradition is about more than turkey.

    The most American of holidays also is the busiest travel time of the year, putting more people on the road and increasing the likelihood of crashes.

    As the Thanksgiving holiday approaches, the Kentucky Office of Highway Safety is reminding motorists to buckle up and is putting a special emphasis on those traveling in pickup trucks.
