  • Remembering the meaning in Christmas

     I find myself in a bit of Christmas quandary this week.

    See, the plan in our house this year was to try to instill the Christmas spirit in our 7-year-old son.

    And I don’t mean a big tree – we’ve covered that – more lights and few extra trips to see Santa.

    No, we have that part covered.

    Our kids love Christmas, and they could not be more excited for it to get here. If I’ve heard “I wish today was Christmas morning!” once, I’ve heard it 50 times.

  • WHAT WE THINK: For holiday cheer, try just being polite

    Over the last several decades Black Friday has been known to bring out the worst in people.

    We’ve all seen it – shoppers trampled, pushed, shoved, cursed at and fighting over a cheap TV or the must-have holiday toy of the season.

    It’s the saddest display of what a consumer driven society can do to people.

    And while shoppers can be difficult to deal with throughout the holiday season, one troubling trend we’ve seen across the commonwealth, and even nationwide, is the rudeness going both ways.

  • A big, heavy, start to the holidays

    Saturday was a big day – and not just because of the instant classic that the universities of Kentucky and Louisville turned in on the football field – it was the day the Martin clan decided to go out and get the season’s Christmas tree.

    I love Christmas – the tree, decorating, the lights, everything and especially with young children.

  • WE CONGRATULATE: Quick work, safety actions in Walmart scare

    What could have been a scary situation was handled calmly, coolly and with the upmost care Saturday when store personnel and county officials quickly handled a potential bomb scare at Walmart in Shelbyville.

    A store employee had noticed a suspicious suitcase sitting outside the Tire and Lube center of the store and alerted store management, who then calmly evacuated the store.

    From there our county officials took over, calling in a bomb squad from Lexington.
