  • 'When religion is your living, it's easy to grow weary'

    When religion is your living, it’s easy to grow weary. I get a taste of it every week when I sit down to write this column. First I have to think of something that’s not only entertaining and worth saying, but something that I feel God wants me to say.

    Then I have to make sure I’m as biblically accurate and as faithful to my particular denominational tradition (in my case Reformed theology — Go, Martin Luther!) as I can be without totally alienating the Baptists, Catholics and Pentecostals, etc.

  • State legislators work to kick substance abuse in local jails

    As expected, this last week was the busiest of the year’s 30-day “short session,” with a flurry of bills winning final passage and negotiations in conference over the details of others.

    Even facing a money crisis, in the end, our efforts resulted in legislation that will have long-lasting benefits to Kentuckians. From the war on drugs -- to the economy -- to better roads and education, we have accomplished a great deal in our time here.
