  • Church: Why bother? How to address this with teens

    A few weeks ago my youngest daughter came home for a quick visit on her way to a wedding and a football game.
    At 27, she has long outgrown her terrible teen years, although she still has a bit of an edge. That’s just Laura.
    When she was 14 or 15 she was into a grunge stage, very Kurt Cobain-Pearl Jam-Stone Temple Pilots. She’d wear pants big enough to fit two sumo wrestlers and heavy, bump-toe combat boots — to church. Hey, I was just glad she came to church back then and I wasn’t about to quibble over what she wore.

  • Thursday is a time to honor veterans

    Nov. 11 is Veterans Day.  On this day every year, we should all take time to recognize the service of the more than 300,000 veterans who call Kentucky home.  These men and women have put their lives on the line to defend our nation.

    As a former Army officer and 11-year veteran, I am committed to supporting and advocating for the well-deserved benefits of our service members, veterans and their families and will continue to fight for all who wear or have worn the uniform.
