  • God uses Christ’s suffering for our soul’s healing

    By Nancy Kennedy, Faith Columnist

    All this past week I’ve been talking to people with scars for a series of stories that I wrote for the newspaper where I work.

    I got the idea from a photographer I heard on the radio, talking about a series of photos he had done of people’s scars.

  • No reason to think Wildcats’ winning formula won’t continue

    Notes that took longer to write than my bracket took to bust. …

    Kentucky just has that look of a champion.

    Give a push or two – or in Cincinnati’s case, three or four, or whatever number you want to put in there – and Willie Cauley-Stein will posterize some poor soul making an admirable, but misguided, attempt at stopping the inevitable.

    Stay close to the Wildcats, but somewhere around that 30- or 35-minute mark, the wall hits.
