  • REFLECTING ON MEMORIAL DAY

    This weekend we honor the brave men and women who gave their lives for this great country. Originally referred to as “Decoration Day,” the holiday originated after the Civil War as Americans would decorate the graves of fallen soldiers with flowers each year. Following WWI it took on new significance and all of America’s wars were from then on included and observed in the holiday we now know as “Memorial Day.”

  • And It All Started With You

    How strong is one idea? Can one idea or one person make a difference? The answer of course is yes, and here is one example. The Christmas Tree lighting at Battle Grove Cemetery came about because one person had the idea and suggested that an existing tree have lights. For several years now there is a tree light ceremony  near the entrance and with it folks take on a bit of Christmas spirit.

  • Viewpoint

    She was likely a grand ol’ dame in her prime.
    She stood on the hill overlooking the Maiden City. She was there when Cynthiana was under construction. She was there for the centennial celebration and there when water towers began dotting the outer reaches of Cynthiana. She was there when her town flooded.
    Unfortunately, she has withered with time and apathy; soon to be just dust in the wind.
    For years I have written about the Handy House.

  • How not to “flunk” sainthood

    On my last birthday I turned 61.
    I thought by this age I’d get the hang of the whole sainthood thing, at least the Protestant definition of a saint as simply being a follower of Jesus, although that somehow doesn’t seem to be enough. Shouldn’t there be more to it than that? Hitting a benchmark of obedience? Praying without ceasing? Saying no to temptation eight out of 10 times, or at least two out of 10?
    If so, then I’m a poor excuse for a “saint.”
