OPINION: Is Social Conservatism “Extremism”?

Governor Beshear criticized socially conservative policy on human life and the family in his weekly news conference: “Every moment that they focus on these culture war type issues, trying to create a new bogeyman for the next election, trying to rile people up, it means they’re not doing important work that could benefit every single person.”He was responding to a “horrendous” (in his words) ruling from the Alabama Supreme Court that frozen embryos are just as deserving of the right to life as any other unborn child. He repeated one word throughout his remarks: “extremism.”

Cheryl Hughes: Life-Changing

I remember talking to Aggie, Garey’s mom, about how much the world had changed since she was a little girl.  We both agreed that for her, it was like living on another planet.  I am here to report that I have arrived at the “another planet” phase of my life.

Senator Stephen Meredith's Legislative Update

The 10th legislative week of the 2024 Regular Session has come to a close, and it's been an impactful one for Kentucky. Our resolve to protect property owner rights was resoundingly affirmed as both House and Senate majorities joined forces to override the veto on House Bill (HB) 18, solidifying its place as law.

This week in the Senate has been eventful, with numerous bills on the table, including one I've been honored to sponsor, SB 27. This legislation tackles an issue close to the heart of every Kentuckian: fair access to affordable medications.

Andy Sullivan: Against the Grain

This week, we research and count down the top 10 gadgets of the 1980’s Inventors and their gadgets came in many forms.  It took an unlikely combination of a German manufacturer and a tv show (Miami Vice) to give the ‘80’s male a not-so-close shave.  When the decade began, America was deeply polarized.  Men were either beard-loving ex-hippies or clean-shaven office workers.

Patty Craig: A Slice of Time

Recently, I’ve been thinking about how people learn from experience. Konrad Adenauer said, “History is the sum total of things that could have been avoided,” and Norman Cousins said, “History is a vast early warning system.” Do groups of people use history like individuals use history to inform decision making?

Three Brothers-in-law

I have three brothers-in-law. 

One firmly believes he will not die a natural death but will instead be caught up in the clouds to be with Jesus during the Rapture, within his lifetime.

The second brother-in-law says he is 100% sure that he knows who the Anti-Christ is, and that the Roman Empire will rise to prominence once more, ushering in the Anti-Christ, who is a Roman citizen.

Letter to the Editor: Jemal Wade Hines

Hello all,

I hope you’re doing well. I want to submit this letter to the editor as my wife Moksha and I, along with our sons Kaleb & Sylvan are going to DC next weekend to lobby on Capitol Hill as part of the ONE Campaign Power Summit. Next Tuesday, March 05th, ONE reps from every state will meet with all congressmen and senators on the same day! 

Every year, the United States saves millions of lives and helps create a better, safer world for everyone – and we do it for a mere fraction of our federal budget.

Cheryl Hughes: Documented

Sometimes, old documents appear at our house, seemingly out of thin air.  Recently, I was looking through my small personal safe, searching for Garey’s army discharge papers, when I came upon something unexpected.  Savings Bonds.  From 1970 & ’71.  There were seven little pieces of yellowed paper, each marked with a face value of $25.  I know zero about bonds—I’m an annuity kinda girl—so I asked Garey about them.  He said he’d known about them all along, and that he had paid $18.75 apiece for them back in the day.
