  • Vengeance says bad things about us, society

    I recently heard someone note that these days, no one younger than 40 reads newspapers anymore.

    That I carefully scan 30 of them a week either says something about my age or my willingness to help make restitution for all the apparent opportunities missed by our younger people.

    Lest anyone be too impressed, I do all this newspaper scanning as part of my service with Catholic Charities, Archdiocese of Louisville, among 45 of our parishes in 17 Kentucky counties. This newspaper checking helps me appreciate the contexts in which they live and serve.

  • 'Iron Man,' The summer superhero battle is on

    Summer is starting early in America’s movie theaters with the arrival of the newest comic book superhero film, and it’s a doozie. “Iron Man” is full of action, explosive violence, but filled with heart. This is a fully fleshed-out character whose backstory explains logically how he became what he is, and that makes us care for him more. In addition, it throws us directly into the conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq, but only for background. There is a better villain closer at hand.

  • Volunteers can make all the difference in quality health care services

    What would health care be without volunteers? Take Hospice care, for example.

To this day Hospice volunteers continue to play a vital role in Hospice patient and family care.

  • NC's Roby dazzles again

    She wasn’t quite perfect the second time around, but Morgan Roby sure was close, throwing a no-hitter Monday in a 10-0 Nelson County win against visiting Bullitt East.

    Roby, a sophomore, faced the minimum 27 batters last week in a perfect game no-hitter against Bullitt Central. Monday, she was poised to do it again, carrying a perfect game through four innings before a hit batsmen and a fielding error caused her to settle for a no-hitter.

    “She’s pitching really well right now — really confident,” Nelson County coach John Rogers said.

  • Can telling the truth ever be a bad idea?

    Ever find yourself in a contradictory position? Here is mine:

    a) A true dislike of most political advertising, in general, and detesting, in particular, negative advertising.

    b) Approval of Greg Fischer’s television commercials and his Web site which points to the baggage that Bruce Lunsford carries.
