    President Donald Trump apparently has taken at least a small step toward fulfilling a big campaign promise he made to Greater Cincinnati.
    The Trump administration has the Brent Spence Bridge project ranked No. 2 on its list of nationwide transportation priorities, according to a document obtained by the Kansas City Star and Tacoma News Tribune. The newspapers, owned by Sacramento-based McClatchy, reported on the list Jan. 24.

  • Have another spirit

    On edge of the wilderness stood the children of Israel, as they were inching closer to the land God had promised them. Moses called upon the leaders from each of the 12 tribes to go beyond where they were and explore the land, which God said they could possess. Shammua represented the tribe of Rueben.

  • Skunks on the move

    It is that time of year again and I am reminded because of the smell and road kill left behind. Plus, a strong scent of skunk has been lingering in the pasture this past week; and I got an Instagram video from my niece as she was clearly backing away from a lumbering black and white rodent down by the river!  
    We used to get them circling the house on winter evenings but our livestock guardian dogs’ presence has kept them from bay the last few years.  Their presence is not surprising, however, because it is mating season for skunks and they are on the move!

  • Can we trust our news media?

    Did Donald Trump mock a disabled reporter?
    Surely you saw the video of President Trump appearing to mock a disabled reporter as it was all over the news media and social media. Hillary Clinton made reference to the video during the campaign.
    The video is still being shown and people are believing, even today, that he mocked a disabled reporter simply because they “saw it”.
