    It's her Golden Birthday - but with a twist. Katie Murley will turn 8 tomorrow on Aug. 8.

    In other words, she'll be 8 on 8/8/08.

    "It's my favorite number," Katie says with a smile.

    A Golden Birthday, also known as a Grand or Star Birthday, is one in which a person turns the age of their birth date.

    Katie says the No. 8 has been lucky for her. Her mother, Jackie Livers, says Katie sometimes thinks the No. 8 has been able to get things "changed" for her, such as a "no" from a parent to a "yes."

    Her husband, Carroll, a professor at Campbellsville College for 16 years, died unexpectedly of a heart attack in 1965. Being fiercely independent and possessing a strong Christian faith, Stein was determined to raise her children just as she had planned when she married, her son Fred said.

    The calls came late at night or early in the morning. An automated voice, claiming to represent Taylor County Bank, warned of a problem with a bankcard and left a number to call.

  • Do what's natural ... and best

    Have you ever wished you could turn back time and do something over again? And do it differently?

    When we received a press release recently about World Breastfeeding Month in August, I immediately thought about my children.
