  • Warmer weather is gone, but I need more volleyball

    With the city spending money on City Hall gym, I think it is time to bring back some of the winter sports to Cynthiana.
    All summer long I have enjoyed learning the game of volleyball.
    From the diving and spiking in the sand to the occasional, “accidental” shots I took toward my wife’s head.
    Yeah, nothing is better than getting off work on a Monday afternoon and heading back the long gravel trail to the front-yard, sand volleyball court.

  • Disappointment with God

    A few months ago, I got a letter from someone I’ll call “Emily.”
    She wrote to ask for my encouragement, which is always humbling and I take these requests seriously.
    Emily said she and her husband are both Christians, but right now neither is close to God. She said her husband is depressed and that makes her anxious and afraid, unsure of when and if it will end, and what will happen because of it.
