• A break in summer?

    I have two teenagers who attend Taylor County Schools, and overall I have always been pleased with the school system. I have a few questions and a suggestion.

    Our summer breaks are so short, just barely two months. If you schedule a family vacation, visiting grandparents, Vacation Bible School, church camp, any sport activity and any time at all with the family ... your summer vacation is full.

    As many in the community are aware, food insecurity situations continue to increase throughout Central and South Central Kentucky due to increasing financial struggles. Fortunately, many individuals, groups and organizations are choosing to make a difference in helping feed the hungry.

  • Take care of our children

    May is National Foster Care Month, a time to shine the light on the foster care experience. Let's start with some figures:

  • Near death experience - Why they fear the light

    It isn't often that a locally published opinion comes across my plate like a hanging curve ball that didn't curve. Such is the case with Dr. David Whitlock's subtly dismissive summation of the near-death experience published on April 28.

  • It's time to take a stand

    I just read [Editor Rebecca Cassell's] article on "Three things to Consider." Thank you so much. That was a great article and it gives each of us a chance to think of someone else besides oneself.

    Thank you again, keep up the good work. There is so much negativity in this world that your articles can bring us back to where we should be.

  • Mom's apron

    The other day I called on an Amish store that I do business with. I noticed the women were all wearing aprons. The pockets were all filled with various essentials. It echoed through the canyons of my mind like a disappearing dream of yesterday.
