  • Register for organ donation

    Even for those whose faith is unshakable, the thought of dying can be unsettling. But die we will, ready or not, and preparation is a must.

    Preparing for the end of life should involve signing one’s driver’s license to be an organ donor and registering at www.donatelifeky.org. Jenny Miller Jones, Kentucky Organ Donor Affiliates (KODA) director of education, put it perfectly when she said it is the greatest legacy we can leave.

  • Times are tough, time to tighten our belts

    Daily, it seems as though our country is sinking deeper into a state of depression. News of financial institutions declaring bankruptcy is becoming more common. Partnered with the rising costs of commodities the outlook for Americans becomes sadder with little certainty of what the future will hold. Although I can speak most knowledgeably from my own perspective, as a young person just starting out, I can also infer that these events leave seniors and the lower class, especially, in dire straits as well.

  • If you can't control it then don't fret over it

    Meteorology was my favorite class in college, which is odd considering I was an English major. The class, taught by a brilliant but stern and somewhat scary professor, was like a breath of fresh air compared to the four literature courses I was also taking that semester. Instead of plodding through all of Jane Austen’s books, I got to learn about the jet stream, tornadoes, thunderstorms and what causes the wind to blow. The information seemed refreshingly relevant compared to the British writers who dominated my last semester of college.

  • Sarah Palin is not vice presidential material

    To the editor:

    Forget the lipstick. That Sarah Palin is not qualified to be Vice President, let alone President of the United States, we have on the authority of no less a figure than Karl Rove. Commenting on Mark Warner’s leadership credentials, Rove said Warner had only been a governor — of Virginia — for three years and before that he was only mayor of Richmond, our 115th largest city.

  • Thank you for supporting New Life Center
