  • Book of Revelation gives glimpse of heaven

        Revelation 21 tells of the start of the eternal day and what God has prepared for all of his people. No other passages in the Bible are like the last two chapters of Revelation. “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and first earth are passed away and there is no longer any sea.  And I saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for husband.”

  • Facts are all you’ll find here

    “Just the facts, ma’am,” said Sgt. Joe Friday in nearly every segment of Dragnet.

    Jack Webb portrayed Sgt. Friday in probably the first of many cop shows. He used that statement when a witness strayed too far from what he or she actually knew to be true and began to delve into hearsay or rumor.

    I pulled those profound words from my memory recently when a plethora of rumors began circulating through our community gossip mill. Funny how they apply to my job as well.

    “Just the facts.”

  • Don't ban smoking in Cynthiana

    Smoking should not be banned from public places. It’s pointless to argue against it because the effects would be the same if you banned it.

    Companies will lose smokers’ money. Non-smokers may choose to leave a restaurant if they wish. If you ban smoking it wouldn’t matter to peoples’ health because it’s still in the air, no matter what. If it’s banned, people will go elsewhere to buy their cigarettes and local tobacco sellers would go out of business.

    In conclusion I believe smoking in public places shouldn’t be banned.

  • No reruns, just books, books and more books

    I’m conducting an unscientific experiment this summer.

    No television.

    That’s right. I’ve turned over my remote control for a reading lamp and novel.

    I can’t say I’ve missed the nightly surf through endless titles of summer re-runs.

    I’ve always enjoyed reading, but just on a casual basis. I would get a book and read on it for a couple of weeks. However, sometimes I go on marathon reads. I have been known to still be awake trying to finish a book when my husband gets up for work at 5 a.m.

  • Smoking should be banned in Cynthiana

    I believe that smoking should not be allowed in pubic places in Cynthiana. Smoke affects everyone you are around, and it is not fair to people who do not smoke. Not only that, but employees would be forced to work in an environment they don’t like. If the smokers really want to smoke so badly, they can wait until they are not around others.

  • What it looks like when Congress does its job

    If you’ve ever wondered what members of Congress do to earn their keep, the current health-care debate on Capitol Hill should give you a good idea. This complex legislation, placed on the congressional agenda by President Obama but shaped by the intense give-and-take of the legislative process, is a perfect window into our democracy.
