  • Spring break from teaching at U of L conveniently falls during the week of St. Patrick’s Day, which is also my target date for planting onions and potatoes.  
    I typically manage a mid-March planting but the condition of the soil is my primary concern. I will not start digging until the soil dries out and is considered workable.

  • The Senate gave approval to a measure prohibiting motor vehicles from being equipped with blue lights, which are distinctively used by law enforcement.  House Bill 74, sponsored by Rep.

    CYNTHIANA PRESBYTERIAN

  • My whole body quivers as this Dookie, may be the only royal blue fan in the entire commonwealth, strokes these keys. If Duke/UK isn’t bad enough, living in Carolina it was Duke/UNC. Arrogant Tar Heel fans would unscripturally proclaim, “If God isn’t a Tar Heel, why is the sky Carolina Blue?” My take, it is a sense of their false hope.
    Do we put God in a box? Do we define Him by our convenience and whims? Do we see Him in our approving light while He must surely be annoyed with others?

  • A few weeks ago, my pastor’s sermon made me squirm in my seat.
    We’ve been studying the Old Testament book of Exodus. That’s the book that talks about God rescuing the Israelites from their centuries of slavery in Egypt, all the plagues upon the Egyptians, how Moses parted the Red Sea and fed the Israelites with manna -- honey-tasting bread from heaven.
    At one point, Moses meets with God on Mt. Sinai where God gives him two stone tablets with his law written on them.
    God’s law is a gift to his people, my pastor said.
