Jarrod Jacobs: “Jacob's Ladder”

            In Genesis 28:10-18, we read where Jacob had a dream. In this dream, God spoke to him and renewed the promise first made to Abraham (Gen. 13:15-16). Not only was the promise renewed, but in his dream, he saw “a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it” (Gen. 28:12).


OPINION: The Government Comes to Dinner

OUT ON A LIMB/John Embry

I read a newspaper article this week and I was perplexed.  I shook my head, repeatedly, as I struggled to comprehend both the content of what was being reported and the absurdity of it.  To be fair, that is a sensation I’ve felt many times since mid-March as the COVID-19 pandemic hit and I observed how some government officials responded to it.  


OPINION: Dr. Gary Houchens - Beshear has been abusing executive power since day one

Many Kentuckians are shocked today after Gov. Andy Beshear issued an executive order shutting down all public and private K-12 schools for the next two weeks in response to the increase in COVID-19 cases, along with a host of other restrictions on private businesses.

Patty Craig; A Slice Of Time

This year has been a year of change in so many ways. Thus far, the pandemic has changed most of our social interactions. With Thanksgiving approaching - a celebration of blessings, I wondered how this holiday might be different. Thinking along that line, I asked friends and family, “Will your Thanksgiving be different this year? If so, how?” Their responses are listed below.


Don Locke: Little things that say who we are

Bill Warren was head basketball coach when we came to Butler County in 1963. If you didn’t know bill sometimes, he came across as having a gruff extension. Not so, one had to look inside Bill as with a lot of people.

            One of his former players told, recently that Bill knew the home – lives of his players; very often he gave them money. For one of the team members Bill made a place for him to sleep in one of the gym dressing rooms, particularly in cold weather. The kid was from a large family.


Cheryl Hughes; This Is Not A Political Statement

I saw a story on the news this week that was both sad and uplifting.  A dad and his daughter contracted the Covid virus and were hospitalized at the same time.  The daughter’s daughter, the dad’s granddaughter, told the story.


Jarrod Jacobs: Not Yours, But God's

This phrase comes from a passage found in II Chronicles 20:5-19. Jehoshaphat had been praying to God concerning a particular battle. God answered him and said, “Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s” (v. 15). Can you think of other things that are not ours but God’s?


OPINION: Dysfunctional school finance reports hinder accountability

Public education is big business, costing Kentucky taxpayers $5 billion this year – nearly six times more than human services, four times the amount spent on higher education, three times that of criminal justice and even more than twice what the state spends on Medicaid.
