  • Flunking sainthood

    This week I turned 57.

    I thought by this age I’d get the hang of the whole sainthood thing. The Protestant definition of a saint is simply a follower of Jesus.

    However, that doesn’t seem enough. There should be more to it than that. For instance, by now I should have at least the beginning buds of a halo or be able to say no to temptation eight out of 10 times — or two out of 10!

    But the truth is, I still struggle.

  • Governors serve as guideposts to state’s rich history

    This week, Steve Beshear is being formally sworn into his second term as governor, kicking off what is Kentucky’s 59th inauguration.

    While the governor is often the most well-known official in the state – like presidents, their tenures serve as guideposts to our history – the truth is that few of our past leaders are well known beyond the counties named in their honor.

    This week is a good time to learn a little more.
