    Thought for the week: Instead of causing chaos and rocking someone else’s boat, you need to row your own.

    Another Lincoln Days is in the books. It was beautiful weather on Saturday. I went for a couple of hours and visited with Regina Dobson and Joyce Devers at CreekFront Park. I watched some of the pioneer games at CreekFront. I hated that rain moved in for Sunday.

    This Friday night is the big football game against Elizabethtown. I hope it is an easy game. Good luck Hawks and make us proud.

  • Lessons from Lincoln Days

    Lincoln Days has come and gone, and whew— what a weekend! Quilt show, art show, all the contests and entertainment— for a “small town festival” there’s so much to see. As a first timer, I attempted to see it all and didn’t even come close.

    Walking down Lincoln Boulevard, past the booths and open mic area, I looked around at the hundreds of people and wondered “What would Abraham Lincoln think about all this?”

    So I decided to ask him—although it took a few tries.

  • Getting Older

    I went to my ten year high school class reunion on Friday, September 29.

    We had almost 200 people in our graduating class and around 25 of us attended our ten year reunion. With our spouses included, we had almost 40 people there.

    I found myself reminiscing before the reunion about all the memories of high school. We had a lot of fun and we talked about a lot of those memories while we were at the reunion.

    State Representative Brandon Reed of Hodgenville recently filed BR 81, a House Concurrent Resolution aimed at protecting Kentucky farmers and their livestock from black vultures.

  • Live Today

    The Psalmist said, “This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it” (Psalm 118:24). This is a prescription for the soul that can give zest, sparkle and determination to your life.

    We promise ourselves tomorrow projecting our joys, opportunities, and even our living into the future. Others endure the present waiting for a better time tomorrow, but dreams of tomorrow should not rob us of today.
