    A statewide smoking ban will again come before lawmakers when they head back to Frankfort in January, but just how much support such a measure will have is unclear.

    “There is no question that it would save the state money in terms of what it pays out for Medicaid,” said state Rep. Jody Richards, D-Bowling Green.

    I often wonder what it must have been like for the twelve disciples when Jesus washed their feet. I think Peter spoke for the group when he declared, “Never shall You wash my feet!”  Peter said this because he knew that it was unnatural for the leader of a group to humble himself and serve those who followed him. This was especially true when the leader of the group was no less than the Savior of the world.  But this is what Jesus did.  He became a servant and served His closest friends and followers.
