Today's Features

  • During my lifetime, I have attended major league baseball games at some beautiful stadiums. I have viewed the home games of the St. Louis Cardinals, the New York Yankees, the Baltimore Orioles, the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Atlanta Braves, the Chicago Cubs and of course the nearby Cincinnati Reds. 

    I must admit these were enjoyable experiences, but none of them compare with what I have viewed at the T-ball field at River Road, Cynthiana, Kentucky. 

  • On Dec. 8, 2014, no one got eaten alive on the Discovery Channel’s “Eaten Alive” -- and some viewers who tuned in to see carnage were outraged.

    On May 6 of the same year, actress Shailene Woodley outraged feminists by announcing that she’s not a feminist, and on Aug. 28, Hello Kitty fans were outraged when the Sanrio company said Hello Kitty “is not a cat.”

  • Ten years ago I wrote: “My friend Mike ate breakfast last week, which is nothing short of a miracle.

    “He doesn’t shake anymore or wake up in the middle of the night sweating. The little green monkeys that haunt him are gone too.”

    This week, my friend Mike is celebrating 10 years being sober. Not just sober, but healed and forgiven, whole and hopeful. He’s tasted the mercy of God, felt his hand of grace that pulled him from the abyss.

  • Have you noticed? Days seem to slip by in the summer. We enjoy extended daylight thanks to the position of the sun, the earth’s orbit and our utilization of daylight savings time. 

    The school year ends in late May. Before we know it July arrives with August following closely. The new school term advances and summer fades to memory. 

    Life’s that way. We anticipate, experience and before long, the seasons change.

  • This year, the hydrangea display is proving to be spectacular. It’s the big-leafed, or French hydrangea, that elicit the most attention because of the volume and size of the blooms.
