  • PERSONALLY SPEAKING

    I would never fancy myself to be Larry King or anything, but in college I always enjoyed reading his columns in USA Today.
    For the unfamiliar, King would not write about one particular theme or subject, rather he would give his thoughts about a variety of topics in short, succinct sentences.

    I guess you could say it was like he opened up his brain that day and spilled out what was inside onto the page.
    As someone who writes the occasional column, thinking of what to write about can be difficult.

    In the aftermath of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, a new program was formed to supplement the health system.The Medical Reserve Corps provides a volunteer pool that can enhance and support public health agencies and the health care infrastructure during a crisis. Since 2002, the program has grown to more than 200,000 volunteers in nearly 1,000 units across the country. Northern Kentucky’s Medical Reserve Corps unit has 382 members, including nine from Grant County.

    Wade Boggs said after speaking to the crowd during his induction into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, “Anyone can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a dad.”
    Last week, I got to have a one-on-one day with my dad by going to see the St. Louis Cardinals play the Cincinnati Reds on what turned out to be a cool day compared to some of the weather we have had here recently.

    I like to see democracy in action. I know that’s weird, but it’s true.
    Democracy was in action Monday night at the Williamstown City Council meeting.

    Discussion, which lasted over an hour, centered on which company should be hired to do a preliminary engineering study for the city’s water treatment plant.

    Four engineering firms submitted proposals.

  • We were made to be ‘Courageous’

    I have allowed God back into my life and I couldn’t be any happier.
    With giving my life to God, I have developed a closer relationship to my fiancé, Jessica Purnell and Jesus Christ.
     

    Jessica and I went to Williamstown Christian Church, March 16, for the movie, “Courageous”, a film about five men making a resolution to be better fathers in their home, teaching the Word of God to their families.

    It is an inspirational film that tests you even if you are not a father, if you are living what God has planned for you.

    This is more like it.

    After spending two years on death row with Billy Clyde at the helms of my beloved Wildcats, Coach Cal in his first three years has UK where I want, scratch that, need them to be every year... competing for a national championship.

    My heart breaks and a little piece of me dies every time UK loses.
    Luckily, I have only came near death twice this season when we fell to the hated Hoosiers and the usually overmatched Vandy Commodores.
