  • When perfect isn’t enough, woman pressures her family

    A few weeks ago, I watched a movie on TV called “The Perfect Family.”

    Right away, just by the title, you know they’re not perfect.

    The main character is Eileen, the mother of the family. A devout Catholic, she attends Mass every day, and at confession she confesses every sin she can think of down to her gossipy thoughts.

    She serves communion and delivers food to the homebound. She’s careful to pray before meals and keeps a family altar in her home.

  • Libraries offer important services to all

    Yellow is the color of the day. I know this is not a color that typically represents libraries, but it will in Frankfort today.

    Library Legislative Day is Feb. 20, and Patricia and I will be making the journey to the Capitol.  We are fortunate to have great legislators, Sen. Ernie Harris and Rep. Rick Rand, who will take time out of their busy schedules to meet with us today. 

    There are two hats I need to wear as director of the library.
