  • Tim Tebow, Cocoa Krispies and faith

    Pam Tebow, mother of University of Florida Gator quarterback Tim Tebow, told the story of her son buying Cocoa Krispies.

    She recently spoke to a packed crowd at a local church about being a person of influence.

    She said her son “Timmy” normally doesn’t eat sweets, but this one time they were at the store together and he put a box of Cocoa Krispies in the shopping cart.

    A little boy, a Tebow fan, saw the box of cereal and told his mom, “Tim Tebow eats Cocoa Krispies!” and he wanted some, too.

    To the editor:

    Motor vehicle crashes remain the leading cause of death among adolescents and young adults in the U.S. Here in Kentucky, statistics from the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet show that drivers between the ages of 15 and 20 were involved in more than 26,000 collisions in 2008, resulting in 141 fatalities. Seventy-percent of those killed were teenagers. According to the National Transportation Safety Board, 16-year-old drivers are more than twice as likely to be involved in fatal crashes as older drivers.

  • Tips for a safe Halloween

    Halloween is always a festive time of the year, especially when there are children around. The magic of the season lends itself to making memories for the young and the young at heart.

     Halloween’s arrival is usually greeted with cool, crisp evenings and an array of colorful leaves – and this year should be no exception. For weeks, many of us are consumed with carving pumpkins; decorating with fodder shocks and fall’s vegetables; attending costume parties, and, of course, trick or treating.

  • Park can feature old and new

    I’m a sucker for old things.

    I enjoy old cars, old furniture, old dishes and old buildings.

    In a photography class, I once had the assignment to photograph an older person.

    Please don’t be offended. It’s a term I use with much admiration.

    “You will find,” my professor said, “that because of age, (lines, wrinkles and all) an older subject will have more character than any other subject you will ever photograph.”

  • Idol factory open for business

    Today I did not go to the outlet store next to the grocery store.

    That may not mean much to you, but to me it was a major big deal.

    Lately, I haven’t been able to stop at the market without checking out the outlet. Even if I park far away I’ll say, “I need to walk more,” and head over to see what’s new on the racks.

  • Motorists need to slow down

    To the editor:

    I’m writing in regards to what I consider to be an every day worsening problem - reckless, speeding and inattentive drivers on US 62 between Georgetown and Cynthiana. I set cruise control on my vehicle between 50 and 55 mph most all the time because I recognize with the smoother ride of most of today’s vehicles, it is so easy to accelerate beyond the limit. I am passed around curves, crests of hills, in the emergency lanes, as well as in straight stretches... as if I’m sitting still.
