  • Family time is the real gift during holiday season

    Christmas morning was a blur at our house.

    Paper was flying, toys were being played with to the sound of shrieks and gleeful delight and the dog was trying to steal someone’s new beef jerky.

    We raced from around the tree to our traditional breakfast of sausage, egg and cheese casserole and homemade cinnamon rolls and cheese Danish. And there’s no rest for weary as we moved directly to the Beyblade Arena, hooking up Alexa and all her accouterment, flying drones and more and more and more.

    It didn’t seem like we stopped.

  • GUEST EDITORIAL: Kentucky's high school diplomas must mean more

    Change is scary. I understand that. Yet we have reached the point in Kentucky’s history when change to our minimum standards for high school graduation is necessary to ensure that our children are well-prepared for postsecondary education and the workforce.

    The case for raising the bar is compelling.

    We need bipartisan support on climate change

    Dear Editor:

    In the President Trump administration’s Fourth National Climate Assessment Report, our Southeast Region’s chapter (https://nca2018.globalchange.gov/chapter/19/) makes it clear - from increases in temperatures, water stress, and freeze-free days, “that trends for our region show an inclination towards slightly drier summers, which could reduce productivity, and wetter fall seasons, which can make it difficult to harvest the full crop.”

  • WHAT WE THINK: Holiday gifts can be more than just what’s in the box

    Most of the lights are shining – if this weather would just ever cooperate – trees are up and stockings are hung with care, and there’s no doubt that holiday gifts are starting to stack up.

    We’ve already lived through Gray Thursday, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and, of course, Cyber Monday. Doesn’t it seem like we might be running out of days?

    But let’s stop for a second and look back over this epic run of consumerism, and think about our one special day that is tucked there in the middle.

  • Curry’s gesture is much more than free shoes

    Like everyone in Kentucky, I have opinions on basketball.

    I’m worried about this year’s University of Kentucky team, a lot. I just don’t know if they have that ‘It’ factor. Or if they can guard anyone. Really, anyone.

    I’ve been surprised by this year’s University of Louisville team. Former coach Rick Pitino is gone, but this year’s team has that hungry look his underrated teams always had. They get after it and make teams work.
