  • I’ve lived in Florida long enough to know that sometimes we have drought conditions and sometimes the water in the rivers and lakes gets so high it overflows.

    About five years ago, this area of Florida was bone dry. It was so dry that a local man who lived on a canal -- “waterfront property” -- converted the dried-out canal off his boat dock into a golf course, complete with putting green, fairway and a tall grass hazard.

  • During the United States Independence Day celebrations you might have heard all or part of the poem inscribed on the Statue of Liberty: “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free…. Send these, the homeless tempest-tossed to me.” The Gospel, gives the same message in a more powerful way: “Take my yoke . . . and you will find rest.”

  • The Funeral Directors Association of Kentucky celebrated its 135th anniversary at the annual convention June 6-8, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel and the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville. During the three-day meeting, 50, 125, and 150-year-old firms were honored; 50 and 60-year Kentucky licensed funeral directors were honored; and funeral directors received continuing education awards. There were 79 exhibitors displaying their different businesses at the exhibit hall. Several educational seminars/presentations were given.
