  • On occasion, I find myself wishing I could turn back the clock.
    Actually, turning back the clock is not what I want to do.
    I want to roll back the calendar until we reach the mid-1950s.
    Ah, those were the days. I was a kid and was not held responsible for adult matters.
    It was a simpler time — simpler because someone else was in charge, including in charge of me.
    There is something else inviting about the mid-1950s.

  • Lloyd and Pat Creech Gray of Smithfield will celebrate their 50-year anniversary April 23, 2016, from 1 to 3 p.m. with family and friends at the Smithfield Baptist Church Fellowship Hall.

  • From the back door, Sarah looked into the yard and was pleased with what she saw.
    Jared and his friends seemed to be having a grand time.
    They had chosen up teams and were playing basketball on the court Paul had built for them.
    As she was turning away, she spied Lawrence.
    Oh, she thought, I’m so glad he came. He is such a polite and good boy. She was, however, a bit concerned about the age range of the boys in the backyard.
    Some were really too young to be playing with boys the age of Jared and his buddies.

  • Welcoming a new baby is an exciting and joyful time for families.  
    This new change also comes with stress and anxiety as parents want to keep their little one safe and healthy.  
    Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (also known as SIDS or crib death) is when a baby 12 months or younger dies during sleep with no clear reason.  
    There is no 100 percent certain way to prevent SIDS, but there are many steps you can take to lower your baby’s risk.  

  • Will 2016 become the year our fears overwhelm us?
    It could be.
    As a society, we seem to be more and more afraid and less and less trusting.
    Violence seems to be on the rise—though I sometimes wonder if the reporting of violence is what is on the rise.
    A reported event at a Louisville mall changes our shopping habits.
    The manner in which someone is dressed raises concerns we didn’t feel a few years ago.
    Shooters shoot and bombs explode, leaving us wondering what and who comes next.
    How are we to respond?

  • One of the blessings I’ve been privileged to have is that of owning, or being owned by, pets. Donna and I have had three—one at a time. All have passed from us but remain in our hearts. Here is the story of one of them.

  • William E. and Lois J. Edens Suter will celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary at their home in New Castle on Thursday, November 5, 2015. They were married at Judge Herrington’s home in Eminence on November 5, 1955. They have seven children, 14 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren.

  • I’m better than you are. See you on the way to the top. Yeah, and I will wave at you on your way down.
    From preschool on, it seems almost everyone is trying to outdo everyone else.
    Who will be top of the class?
    Who will become the MVP for the game, the season?
    Who will take top honors at graduation? Who gets the most scholarship money?
    Who lands the best job out of college? Who becomes the CEO?
    Who dies with the most toys?
    Some will argue that the ones who come out on top are those with the most ambition.

  • During my childhood years, I learned the most important and basic skills a guy needs to survive in this world.
    I learned how to take care of myself and to share responsibilities for the home I shared with my parents and my sister Carolyn.
    Some of those skills were taught; others were learned from observation.
    I learned to hang up my wash cloth and towel and to rinse out the bathtub.

  • Meet six-year-old Jimmy.  He likes to climb all over furniture, run around and often speaks out of turn.  
    His mom reports that she is worn out because Jimmy just won’t mind.  
    His teacher says that Jimmy doesn’t pay attention in class and won’t finish his assignments.  
    Is he just a stubborn six-year-old boy with lots of energy or does he have a true disorder that needs medical treatment?  

  • Elias Jay-Landon Griffon Downey was crowned the 2015 Little Mr. Eminence Day, according to Michele Thompson.

  • “You just need to try harder!”
    Has anyone ever said that to you?
    It doesn’t always work. I would have loved being one of those guys who played basketball, baseball and football.
    Actually, I did . . . in backyards and driveways.
    When it came to playing on our school teams, I lacked the coordination to play basketball or baseball.
    All the “try-harder” I could muster was not enough.
