  • God says ‘Give me another chance’ to those who rebel

    By Nancy Kennedy, Faith Columnist

    Recently, I met a young guy who told me about his faith journey with Jesus.

    He had grown up in church but didn’t want to follow Jesus once he got older. He didn’t go into details, but he said he was a knucklehead and did a lot of stuff he knew was wrong and didn’t really want to do what’s right.

    One day he was out driving and hydroplaned his car and it stopped just before going over a ledge.

  • In life and eating, balance is key to everything we do

    By Ciara Hyatt, Cooking columnist

    Balance is key in everything we do.

    The stepfather charged with first-degree criminal child abuse for his role in tying up a 3-year-old child for up to 16 hours a day received a three-year diverted sentence last Friday in Anderson Circuit Court.

    Herbert Medley, the 3-year-old’s stepfather, accepted a plea deal with the Commonwealth Attorney’s office and entered an Alford plea, which essentially means the evidence against him would likely lead to his conviction but that he doesn’t have to admit wrongdoing.

  • Final Four loss makes Wildcats ask ‘What if?’

    It still hurts.

    Not even the reality of the big “38” can overcome the pain of the “1” for any Kentucky basketball fan.

    At least, that one will sting for a long time. A real long time.

    After all, 38-1, as great as it is, is a long way from 40-0.
