    A brighter day

  • Higher education a necessity for Kentucky's future

    I’ve kept in contact with some very good friends at my alma mater, Eastern Kentucky University. Some friends have gone back after completing a degree to serve there and influence the next generation’s experience while others complete graduate degrees to enhance their post-college prospects. Although I couldn’t be on campus with them, I recently watched from afar at the prospect of cutting the budget...again, the third time in five years.

  • Legislators return tomorrow for session end

    The common thread binding all good legislation is that, by the time the actual vote arrives, the outcome is all but a foregone conclusion.

    It takes a lot of effort to get to that point, of course. Stakeholders need to be included early on, because they are the ones who will be most affected by any change, and the public must have the chance to weigh in as well. It’s a process that can take months, but when it works, the positive impact is measured in years.

  • Looking Back and Do You Remember | April 12, 2018

    April 14, 1988 | 30 years ago

    High winds toppled trees across highways and county roads, partially destroyed a machine shed and even flipped a mobile home on its side off Palmyra Road. No injuries were sustained during the storms. The Banner notes that most residents suffered a sleepless night.

  • Forgiven people forgive people

    Years ago, I knew a feisty older woman who loved to say, “There’s nothing like a good smiting.”

    She’d point out how, in the Bible, God was always smiting people – and she had a list of people on her own smite list.

    Don’t we all have people we’d rather smite than forgive?

    Last month at the church in Tampa we frequently visit, the pastor talked about the words Jesus spoke from the cross, beginning with “Father, forgive them – they don’t know what they’re doing.”

  • Raising them in the faith

    Christian parents bear a great responsibility in relation to their children.

  • Trimble baseball opens All 'A' Classic with shutout victory

    The Trimble County Raiders drew blood early and often in Monday’s opening round of the Eighth Region All A Classic, claiming a 11-0 shutout victory over Eminence in five innings.
