    Billy Graham has been one of the most visible, respected and influential Christians in the world since the 1950s. But he often had a blind spot when it came to politics. Graham was Richard Nixon’s golfing buddy and spiritual adviser. He was there to pray with Nixon after every victory and loss. And Nixon consulted him on everything from his vice presidential pick to the conduct of the Vietnam War.

  • OPINION: ‘Thirteen Tears’ — Rachel Scott’s story

    Rachel Scott was having lunch with a friend outside Columbine High School on April 20, 1999 when classmates Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris approached and fired several gunshots, wounding them. As Rachel tried to crawl away, Harris lifted her by her hair and asked, “Do you believe in God?”

    “You know I do,” she answered.

    “Then go be with him,” he said, and shot her in the head.

    She was the first to die in the horror that was only beginning.

  • Letter: Thank you for your kindness

    To Bardstown and Nelson County residents, I cannot begin to thank you all for the wonderful donations you provided for our homeless veterans.

    We received clothing, household items, laundry supplies, personal hygiene items, and many other necessities for setting up homes for our homeless veterans of Kentucky. We have a few here in Nelson County that benefited from the donations and you just cannot believe the happiness these donations brought unless you were there when they received them.

  • Opinion: Snow day learning really is different now

    By Rebecca Clark Brothers

    Forty years ago this month, Nelson and surrounding counties were blanketed under 20 inches of snow.

    That year, schools missed close to 30 days. This was before bank days and long-distance learning days, so students went for a month without any instruction. When they returned to school, the teachers may have had a quick review and then continued with their regular instruction. School may have ended in early June, but the instruction time was the same.

  • Opinion: On the presidency and the attention it attracts

    By Lee H. Hamilton

    Because we live in such tumultuous political times, it’s easy to believe that today’s intense public focus on the Trump presidency is something new — an obsession like none we’ve ever seen before. Yet to one degree or another, the president has always been at the center of the public’s attention.

  • Editorial: Volunteerism a meaningful way to honor MLK

    Jan. 15, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, was a day off for most students and many workers, but it was a day of service for some 60 students and Rotarians who turned the time into an opportunity to address hunger issues on the local and international level as they packed meal kits at Bethlehem High School.

    MLK Day has long been a springboard for launching volunteer work in the service of mankind.
