Congressman Brett Guthrie: Western Kentucky Keeps the Lights On

I am proud to represent some of our nation’s most dedicated workers who live here in Western Kentucky. For generations, Western Kentuckians have woken up before sunrise and returned home well after sunset, working hard in coal mines and at power plants to keep our energy grid powered with American-made energy.

One of my granddaughters is a senior. That last year of high school is a year of memory making and wondering what to do next. I believe the decisions about jobs and careers are some of the most stressful decisions we make.

Cheryl Hughes: Not On My Watch

We spent last week digging through Garey’s mom (Aggie’s) basement.  She was 94 when she passed last November, and parts of everything she bought or was given over her 94 years on this earth reside in that basement.

Senator Stephen Meredith: Honoring Our Veterans - A Tribute to Military Heroes

As Veterans Day approaches, I reflect on the immeasurable courage and sacrifice exhibited by our military members. Author and philosopher G.K. Chesterton once said, "Courage is almost a contradiction in terms. It means a strong desire to live taking the form of readiness to die." It takes an exceptional individual to leave the comforts of home, family, and the peaceful corners of Kentucky to serve in the military, embodying unbridled bravery and selflessness. Veterans are heroes deserving of our deepest gratitude.

Cheryl Hughes: In A Hundred Years

Mark Twain left instructions for what to do after his death.  He died in 1910 with hundreds of pages of memoirs.  His instructions were not to publish these pages until one hundred years later.  The pages were kept in a vault at the University of California, Berkely, where they were removed and published in 2010.

Jarrod Jacobs: Don't Believe Your Eyes

Magicians’ sleight of hand fools most people when it is done correctly. When watching them, we are wise when we heed the warning, “Don’t believe your eyes.” In entertainment, many a short man has been made taller on television and in the movies by filming him next to his “leading lady” while standing on a box! CGI, or computer-generated imaging, has created scenes and events that could never have happened otherwise.

Pop superstar Barry Manilow is taking on a brand-new role: composer of a Broadway musical.  This, after a career that has truly made him a legend.  CBS Sunday Morning’s David Pogue: “If you were around during the ‘70’s and ‘80’s, you could probably sing along with many of Barry Manilow’s 50 top 40 hits.  From “Could It Be Magic” to “Mandy” “Looks Like We Made It” and, of course, “Copa Cabana”.

Joseph Addison said, “Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body.” For me, reading is also entertainment. Three of my recent reading topics were winter weather predictions, ways to save energy at home, and financial lessons for teens and young people.
