  • Ways to determine if your child is the one bullying other children

    Dear Readers,
    For the past two weeks I have tried to offer some information concerning the very important issue of bullying. This week’s article is the last I will write on this topic for now and I will hope that the information has been useful. In the first installment I defined bullying and explained the many forms it can take, in the second I discussed signs to look for and steps you should take should your child be bullied. This week I want to discuss how to determine if your child is the bully and what steps you should take once this is discovered.

    ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. – Kentucky Baptists object to what they see as a growing anti-Christian bias in the U.S. judicial system, and they’re calling on judges to treat followers of Jesus with respect and dignity afforded them by God and the U.S. Constitution.

  • The gift of misery

    I spent this past weekend feeling sad.
    The reason isn’t important — actually, there really wasn’t a reason other than I just felt like being sad, and so I was.
    I called my sister to tell her that I was sad, but she was at her granddaughter’s soccer game and didn’t answer her phone, which made me even sadder.
    I would’ve told my husband I was sad, but he would just tell me all the reasons I have not to be sad or he’d give me a pep talk, which is not the proper response to sadness, in my opinion.


    Nov. 14, 1985 (30 years ago)
    The Bedford city commissioners are concerned about the city’s liability insurance. Mayor Jim Black said at the last city meeting that while the insurance company had not yet received any letters regarding the situation yet, there could be little or no notice of the city’s insurance being cancelled. Black said that the city’s insurance comes due January 8 but if the policy is renewed, the commission could expect a 30, 40 or 50 percent increase in rates.  

  • Honoring Kentucky’s veterans

    One hundred years ago, “the war to end all wars” ravaged Europe. What we now call World War I ended in part thanks to the more than four million Americans who mobilized to join the Allied Powers’ fight overseas. Over 100,000 of them did not return home. The war ended on November 11, 1918, and the commemoration of that day has become the holiday we now observe as Veterans Day.
