  • GCHS, Sherman honored for health in school health

    Many schools in Northern Kentucky are actively shaping the health and wellness of their students and staff.

  • What would Jesus do?

    The other day, my family and I got a hankering to go get some ice cream (when I say we, of course, I mean me), so we went to a local fast food place for an ice cream cone. We went outside to the sitting area and there was another family already out there. Now, I am a stickler for rules. I believe rules are there for a reason. And so when I went out to the sitting area, blazoned all over the place were signs that said “No Smoking.” And guess what that family was doing—that’s right, the adults all had cigarettes in their mouths.

  • History according to Ken

    My new bald head has revived people’s interest in me and from where I sprang unto this earth.
