  • Veterans to be honored at Sunday ceremony

    They're the three years of his life he says he wishes he could forget.

    "Everybody knows war is hell, don't they?" the 87-year-old said. "That's how I'd describe it."

    Campbellsville resident W.I. Rucker is a veteran of World War II. He served in the U.S. Army as a technical sergeant for nearly three years.

    Rucker, originally from Burdick, was drafted in April 1943.

    When he was drafted, he said, he just thought he would go like everyone else.

    "It's time to go," he said. "That's just the way I felt about it."

  • Don't give up on God

    When my youngest daughter was 15 she began an unrelenting campaign to pierce her eyebrow.

    She once handed me seven pages of documented Internet research, complete with a list of "35 Reasons to Say Yes." ("It will not harm any living creature." "I won't wear the eyebrow ring to any formal occasion." "It is better than piercing my tongue.")

    I found it amusing and I admired her persistence - until the Day of the Pringles.

    We were at the market and as she followed me up and down the aisles, she jabbered non-stop about getting her eyebrow pierced.
