Cheryl Hughes: Fallout

Sometimes, I get really angry at people I’ve never met.  People who haven’t lived during my lifetime, even.  People who have been long dead for thousands of years.  I have conversations in my head in which I say things like, “What were you thinking!  What did you think was going to happen!  Did you ever consider anyone but yourself!”  These one-sided conversations usually take place in the wee hours of the morning, when sleep evades me.

Jarrod Jacobs: “Our Astonishing God”

One of the most striking statements concerning God is found in the book of Isaiah. “Behold, the Lord GOD will come with a strong hand, and his arm shall rule for him: behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him. He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young. Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance?

Andy Sullivan: Against the Grain

This week, I’ll delve into the world of Steven Van Zandt.  Steven Van Zandt embodies both the frustration and beauty of the arts.  There is no official title, no one way to do the job.  He’s discovered it’s easier to be this creative furnace, this volcano of artistic output when you are not the focus.  The longtime guitarist and musical director of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band was also an underboss of a different kind: acting in one of history’s most influential television shows (T

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.

Patty Craig: A Slice of Time

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.
