  • Congress passes Farm Bill

    The Senate has opened a door to new opportunities for Kentucky agriculture. After extensive collaboration with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle, we passed one of my top Kentucky priorities for the year – a Farm Bill containing my legislation to legalize the production of industrial hemp. When President Trump signs the bill into law, Kentucky‘s farmers can continue to lead the nation in the growing, processing and manufacturing of industrial hemp.

  • Need holiday travel ideas? Plenty inside the Bluegrass

    With Christmas arriving early next week, time is drawing short for those who’d still like to fit in a Kentucky-themed holiday activity.

  • The star of Bethlehem

    In Matthew 2, we read about the Magi, more commonly known as the Wise Men.

    These men traveled a great distance because of a bright, shining star. They knew that this star was shining because a King had been born in Israel and they wanted to worship this newborn King. When they finally arrived in Bethlehem they went to the house where the star stood over and worshipped the young child Jesus. They gave expensive gifts to the family in honor of Jesus.

  • Silent Night turns 200

    This Christmas Eve of 2018 marks the bicentennial of the first performance of “Silent Night,” the Christmas carol beloved by millions around the world.

    Many legends have circulated down through the years about the origins of this Christmas hymn — that it was written in one or two days by two men, first performed with guitar accompaniment because church mice had destroyed the bellows of the church organ and largely forgotten for many years after its first performance.

  • 'Light and life to all He brings'

    When I was a kid, my family observed Advent, lighting the candles on a traditional evergreen wreath.

    Because there’s four of us kids, we each got to light one of the four candles, one candle for each of the four weeks in Advent.

    The first candle represents hope; the second, peace; the third, love and the fourth is joy. A center candle is the Christ candle — Jesus, the light of the world.

    My dad made the base of the wreath, because he’s awesome and can make anything, and he’d read prayers out of a booklet as we lit the candles.

    The Trimble County Lady Raiders under the direction of head coach Kerrie Stewart picked up its second win of the young basketball season Saturday, claiming a 58-43 victory over the visiting Southwestern Lady Rebels of Hanover, Indiana.

    It was a close contest early with Trimble trailing throughout much of the first half. Southwestern held a 15-13 edge after the first eight minutes of play and although Trimble led briefly 17-15 at the six minute mark in the second quarter the Lady Rebels reclaimed the lead and held a 24-21 advantage at halftime.
