Guest column by Dr. William Thornbury

Family physicians can address opioid crisis

Across Kentucky, community leaders, health care professionals, public policy makers and law-enforcement officials are stepping up to address the opioid epidemic. The Kentucky Academy of Family Physicians is one of many groups working to stop opioid abuse before it starts and to help those who already are struggling with opioid use disorders.

Tough losses for the track and field family

By Moreland Jeff

You’ve heard it said about things before, but in this case, it’s really true; track and field is like one big family.

My son is a thrower (shot put, hammer) at Georgetown College, which is in the Mid-South Conference, with Campbellsville University and Lindsey Wilson College. He’s in his second year, and my wife and I attend every meet, whether it’s nearby or far away. It’s just what we do.

CU athletes deserve to compete on a level playing field

By Moreland Jeff

 

I didn’t see him complain, but I think Clayton Embry had to feel a little slighted this past weekend.

Embry is a thrower on the Campbellsville University track and field team, and he placed second in the Mid-South Conference meet at the University of the Cumberlands.

Why would he feel slighted? Well, because he finished second in the hammer throw, not to a student-athlete, but to a coach.

Old friends - the best friends

By David Whitlock

We span the decades; these old friends of mine.
“We’re planning to go to the Kentucky Derby. Got any suggestions?” they called and asked me several months ago.
I didn’t have any, really, other than my sage advice for them to avoid the crowds as much as possible.
“You haven’t changed,” Cindy laughed. “On the way back, we’ll be there for Sunday worship with you.”
Which they did, much to my delight.

Shining a light on opioid issue

By Zac Oakes

As I stood there in the sanctuary of First Cumberland Presbyterian Church Sunday night, with the lights completely out and the only light in the room illuminating from several candles burning, I thought about the significance of what was happening in the moment.

This was not any ordinary church service that I attended on a random Sunday evening in April. This was a service dedicated to providing prayer and support for those struggling in the chains of addiction and those who have loved ones struggling.

All the youthfulness you need

By David Whitlock

“Hume Cronyn,” she said, squinting her eyes in my direction.
I was standing in the grocery store aisle.
“Excuse me?” I responded, clueless about what she meant. “Hugh?”
“Hume, Hume,” she emphasized, “Hume Cronyn, the actor. You look like him.”
This was a bit unusual, at least for me. I’m not used to being stopped by a complete stranger in the grocery store and learning that I look like someone I’ve never heard of.
