  • In both sports and faith, learning the basics is key

    This past August, I “unretired” from coaching football and returned to the gridiron to lead the 6- to 8-year-old Pee Wee Yellow Jacket football team.

  • Report offers insight on crashes on highways across Kentucky

    While no one can accurately predict where a traffic accident might occur, information gathered by the Kentucky State Police gives us a pretty good idea of when the odds are certainly in our favor.

    Based on its latest annual report, which was released last week, one of the safest places to be on the highway in 2010 was in a vehicle driven at dawn on a Sunday in March by a woman in her late 60s or early 70s who was making her way between Owensboro and Henderson on the Audubon Parkway.
