  • State’s tourism industry loaded with attractions

    Next year, Kentucky’s tourism industry will mark a major milestone when Mammoth Cave celebrates the 200th anniversary of its first commercial tour.
    The world’s longest cave is our country’s second-oldest paid attraction, trailing only Niagara Falls, and it and the surrounding national park have since become a major destination. It draws more than two million visitors a year aboveground, and about a fourth of those tour the sights below.

  • The joy of being a sinner

    Thanks to my daughter, Alison, I’ve been listening to Chris Rosebrough, a Lutheran pastor in North Dakota who has a daily podcast, “Fighting for the Faith.”
    He critiques sermons by a number of superstar Christian pastors and speakers who have become more enamored with themselves than with Jesus. Among other things, Rosebrough points out how they mangle or water down scripture, or ignore it altogether.

  • Project Prom labeled ‘wonderful success’

    As Project Prom has quickly come and gone for this school year, I want to thank all that gave of your time and talents to make this a wonderful experience for our youth! Project Prom takes the combined effort of the Project Prom Committee, community, schools, board members, food services, businesses, and churches.

  • House Speaker: ‘right to work wrong for Kentucky’

    Over the last four months, there has unfortunately been a renewed effort to breathe life into a proposal that most economists declared dead long ago. Supporters call it “right to work”; the rest of us, with the facts on our side, call it “right to work for less.”
    Those backing the concept claim it will cure everything but the common cold. Not embracing it, they say, has cost Kentucky countless jobs and limited worker choice.
    They’re wrong on both counts.

  • Used cars: A love story

    My love of the used car began some time ago. I love the used car because I’m cheap, frugal, broke; whichever adjective that you prefer. I am ashamed to admit that I’m also smitten with some of the fancy options. The fact that somebody else took the hit for those features, and that I eventually benefit, is also a selling point.

  • Death of the dreaded neighbor lady

    I killed my neighbor lady last week.
    I’ve written about her before, about how she’s a huge butinsky when it comes to my kids and how she’s always running interference for them, “protecting” them from the way I parent them and just basically being a major pain in my neck.

  • Energy a state focus

    Even before it became a state in 1792, Kentucky’s energy potential was well-known.
    It all began in 1750, when Dr. Thomas Walker, one of Kentucky’s early explorers, discovered coal here, and our profile began expanding significantly 40 years later, when the first commercial coal mine opened in what is now Lee County.
