  • Frustrations build over the political gridlock in nation

    Frankfort State Journal

    When we look at the political gridlock in our nation’s capital — and to an extent in our own capital — as citizens and taxpayers we’re reminded of the story told by the late Southern comedian Jerry Clower (1926-98). It went something like this:

     “The big question is who is going to score goals after losing Michael Hall,” Crutcher said. Hall graduated last year as the program’s all-time leading scorer, netting 36 last season and 70 goals in his career.

  • DNA advances aid in researching ancestry

    Last month, I attended the Genealogical Research Institute of Pittsburgh, or GRIP, for a weeklong course in using DNA to aid in family history research.
