  • Oh, dear church

    Recently, I listened to an eight-episode podcast (like an internet radio show) called “Oh Dear God.”

    Done by two young, thirtysomething women, they both grew up in the Christian faith.

    Today they like some of Christianity, but not all of it. Same goes for their feelings about the church.

    The women met at camp -- they love church camp -- and now they’re comedians who live in Los Angeles.

  • CCMS Panthers sweep the visiting Trimble Raiders

    Lexington Herald Leader

    Anheuser-Busch has hired a Kentucky company to develop and manage experiments aboard the International Space Station next month to help it figure out how to someday put beer on Mars.

    The world’s largest brewer announced earlier this year that it expects humans to someday colonize Mars, and it wants to provide beer for them there. But first it must figure out how the microgravity of outer space affects beer’s ingredients and the brewing process.
