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.

Andy Sullivan: Against the Grain

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”.

Patty Craig: A Slice of Time

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.

Senate President Robert Stivers: Don’t take out the bridge before we cross the river!

FRANKFORT, KY (October 27, 2023) – Kentucky residents deserve to have their energy needs met at a reasonable cost without fear of brownouts or blackouts like those experienced with Winter Storm Elliott in 2022.  The failure of a single natural gas valve on the coldest day of the year shut down the grid and caused Kentucky families and businesses needless harm and suffering.

Jarrod Jacobs: The Blood of Christ

Our Lord shed His blood on the cross 2,000 years ago. This blood has cleansing power, the likes of which has not been equaled by man. In fact, there is nothing man can do to cleanse himself from sin, but Christ’s blood can cleanse man from sin!
