  • Every church needs a red door

    One day last week I heard some people on a podcast talking about celebrities’ lifestyle Websites, like Gwenyth Paltrow’s “Goop.”
    Not being interested in what celebrities think I should buy/eat/wear/read, mostly all I heard was a bunch of blah blah blah — until someone said that in the 1990s Cher had a lifestyle catalog.
    Not that I care about Cher’s catalog, but its name caught my attention: “Sanctuary.” For the rest of the week I thought about that word and its meaning.

  • State contributes important research in health care

    Several weeks ago, Kentucky received international attention when we learned that that an Owensboro facility was the home of an experimental serum given to two Americans who had become infected with the Ebola virus in Africa.

  • Life lessons in the mud

    Although I personally don’t get the fascination with running races through mud, these days lots of people do.
    A few years ago, my two daughters did a mud race together. My oldest daughter, Alison, said the obstacles freaked her out and she doesn’t like climbing cargo nets and was leery of leaping over fire.
    “Otherwise, the mud was fun,” she said. “Once you commit to being muddy and know you’re going to feel gross and will be cleaning mud out of your ears for weeks after, it’s just plain fun.”
