    The Caring Place


  • 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.

  • Help bring awareness to the tragedy of child abuse

    Childhood is supposed to be an age of innocence, but for too many in the Commonwealth, it's a time of suffering. In 2009, a report revealed that Kentucky led the nation in the number of children who die as a result of abuse and neglect. Statistics show that every minute in Kentucky, two children are victims of abuse and neglect that can leave emotional and physical scars that last a lifetime. No doubt there are countless more cases that go unreported.

  • It's time for voters to pay attention

    The latest report I've seen from the Labor Department (which is tasked with keeping track of such things) is that the nation's core inflation rate is relatively flat. It told us that consumer prices rose just 0.5 percent for the January-March quarter. This low rate bodes well for the consumer (were it true), despite our sputtering economy and lack of jobs for our millions of unemployed.

  • Girl Scout cookie season comes to a close

    Another Girl Scout cookie season in Kentuckiana has come to a close. This year was our most successful ever, and we thank each and every member of our community for their continued support. Without you, we would not be able to provide outstanding leadership development programs to every girl who wants or needs them in our council.

    Supporters of the Girl Scout cookie program can be proud of their contribution. After all, Girl Scout cookies are MORE than just a cookie. Every Girl Scout cookie has a mission - to help girls do great things.
