Today's Features

  • * The Cynthiana Democrat, Aug. 11, 1921 -- “Train Time at Cynthiana. The daily freight trains passing this point daily numbers 24 and passenger trains 18. On some days even more, extras being run. Running straight through the center of town, with five dangerous crossings, the trains with their noise and smoke are a great nuisance, making one wonder how anybody at any time thought it an advantage to have a railroad splitting a town in two.”

  • As I write this, I am preparing to head out of town, heading south for about 10 hours to see my eldest daughter get married.
    I really like weddings. Not enough to get up at 5 a.m. to watch one that took place in England recently, but I have been to a few since I often have the privilege to officiate at them and I have grown quite fond of them.
    It’s not the romance or pageantry or the beauty of the bride that causes me to like them. I have been a pastor and married long enough to know that marriage is as difficult as it can be wonderful.

  • A number of years ago I wrote a story about a man who was as lost as a soul could be.
    When I met him, he was a pastor, although he didn’t look like a typical pastor, if there is such a thing.
    I remember his shaved head and “ROUGH” tattooed across the back of his neck. I also remember thinking he was one scary looking dude.
    His wasn’t a sanitized, heartwarming story, although it started out that way.
