  • More than a festival

    I thoroughly enjoyed attending and covering my first Lincoln Days Celebration this year. I also enjoyed getting to see a lot of my family and friends who traveled from eastern Kentucky to attend Lincoln days. Overall, it was a great weekend.

    If you had seen me out and about roaming around with my camera during the event, it wouldn’t have taken you long to figure out that I was new to the whole idea of Lincoln Days. To me, Lincoln Days was different than any other festival or event I have ever attended in the state. It didn’t take me long to realize that fact.

  • Apple’s new iPhone - Which one is right for you
  • WWJD? You might be surprised

    By Nancy Kennedy

    A few weeks ago, a woman called me with an idea for my column.

    She had just read “In His Steps,” a book written in 1896 that sparked the “WWJD” (What Would Jesus Do?) phenomena in the 1990s, which included the WWJD bracelets, bumper stickers, refrigerator magnets, etc.

    The book, written by Charles Sheldon, is a fictional story about a pastor who challenges his congregation not to do anything for an entire year without first asking, “What would Jesus do?” and then do that.

  • Believe and recieve

    Belief can be life-changing. Daniel’s belief gave him the courage to face the lion’s den. The three Hebrew children had belief when thrown into the furnace. It is belief that controls our actions.  To receive the blessings of God we must believe right.

  • How I became a 'former' city girl

    Prior to my parents moving to Kentucky and eventually New Haven, my experience outdoors consisted of playing in our small yard, riding my bike up and down the sidewalk in front of our house as well as picnicking and hiking in the Metro Parks in Cleveland, Ohio. We would also go on camping trips to Kentucky; that’s when my parents fell in love with this state.

  • Letter to the Editor

    Dear Editor,

    It is election season again, where the never ending commercials bombard us with a myriad of negative information. There is little, if any, positive information. That is my purpose, to speak to the good things that our elected officials do.

  • Letter to the Editor

    Dear Editor,

    We would like to recognize the staff of Hardin Memorial Hospital for their personal and professional care during our recent stay. Special thanks to the Birth Place, ICU, Rapid response team and the Elizabethtown Physicians for Women. When someone goes to the hospital for the birth of their child, they don’t expect to utilize so many departments.

  • All humbling, no exalting...

    I had the privilege to attend and cover the Luke 14 event held in Hodgenville last Saturday.

    For those of you who haven’t heard or read, the event was held to honor people with disabilities as well as their families and caretakers. The event featured games, activities and entertainment by people with a wide variety of disabilities.
