  • MOREHEAD — INSIGHT, a postsecondary preparation program for high school students who are blind or visually impaired, was held on the Morehead State University campus June 9-16.

    In its 12th year, the program is a collaboration between MSU, Kentucky Office for the Blind, Kentucky School for the Blind, Kentucky Education Development Corporation (KEDC), and KSB Charitable Foundation.

    Participating in this year’s camp were 18 students, including Mason Tilley of Bedford.

  • The sands of time have done my eyes no favors. My arms have gradually shortened to the point that I can no longer read the directions on medicine bottles. For the past 10 years the safe dosage of any over the counter medicine remains a mystery to me. I do know that when my ears begin to ring I’ve taken too much.

  • It has been said, “history repeats itself.” I think that this is more than a random statement that someone made in the past. I believe there is truth spoken in these words. In fact, the Bible is full of history that would agree with this statement.

    Across centuries of time history records many accounts that seem to eventually be repeated again and again. One would think that by the 21st century, man would be wiser and more intelligent by having looked at the past with greater respect.

  • Lately, I’ve reconnected with a young woman I met years ago.

    In the past month or so she has rediscovered God. She said for many years she hadn’t believed, or maybe she believed but had put God in a back closet somewhere and shut the door.

    But recently, she opened the door to him and she contacted me to tell me about it. Ever since then she and I have been having conversations about faith and prayer and the love of God.
