  • Kentuckians’ sacrifices remembered

    For most of Kentucky’s history, we have found a way to go above and beyond the call of duty when it comes to protecting our country.

    During the War of 1812, for example, Kentucky suffered more casualties than all other states combined.  In the decade since Sept. 11, 2001, meanwhile, no military base has seen more deployments than Fort Campbell.

    Last week, the nation turned its attention to the Kentuckian who became the latest recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor, the highest award that anyone in the military can receive.

  • A stroke of faith changes pro’s perspective

    Forty-one years ago, Steve Starnes played football alongside Al Cowlings and O.J. Simpson as the Buffalo Bills fifth-round draft pick out of the University of Tampa.

    He also played for the Green Bay Packers and the (former) Boston Patriots.

    He was big and burly. Then he injured his neck and his professional football career, the dream of many little boys and grown men, was cut short. Five years ago a stroke nearly took his life.

  • A makeover for our courthouse cannon?

    We’ve all seen them, those items of armament from wars fought long ago displayed in the public squares of small towns in rural America. They can be seen in courthouse lawns, at meeting houses of Veterans of Foreign Wars and American Legion organizations, airports, etc. They are visible reminders of battles fought, victories won, adversaries overcome, sacrifices made and “heroes proved through liberating strife,” as Katherine Lee Bates so skillfully memorialized in the lyric of “America, the Beautiful.”
