  • Change your ways: Help bell ringers

    As the final shopping days of Christmas approach, so does the deadline for helping children and families in need with the annual Salvation Army bell ringer program.
    Throughout Elizabethtown and Radcliff since last month, volunteers at times have stood in the cold, wind and rain, and rang a bell for hours, hoping those who pass by will offer up some change or a few dollars.

  • Surviving Christmas in a blended family

    Christmas can be tough, especially for blended families. And apparently there are plenty of them. It’s been estimated that more than half of Americans live in some form of a blended family. Stepfamily therapist Steven Straub believes that the blended family will become, if it’s not already, the predominate family structure in the United States.

  • Military answered the call: How will we respond?

    As thoughts for this time of the year turn to counting our blessings, may I suggest that chief among them is the willingness of our fellow Americans to defend our freedom generation after generation.

    Since Pearl Harbor some 70 years ago, three generations of Americans have answered our nation’s call to duty in her defense. Today, we are in the 11th consecutive year of the Global War on Terror.

    Erbe’s disservice
    As a Muslim feminist (and woman), I was saddened and discouraged by Thursday’s editorial page column on the subject of Islam and women’s rights, “When religion rules law, women lose.” I am sure other Muslim readers also were disturbed. Ms. Erbe, like many commentators on the Muslim world, makes broad and unfair generalizations.

  • Hoping to share 'good tidings of great joy'

    The Christmas season is a time of joy. Great joy, in fact, if you read the King James Version of Luke’s account of the Messiah’s birth.

    If that’s so, why are so many people miserable?

    Crowded parking lots and shopping frenzies put many of us on edge. Then there’s the extra hussle and hassle to fit in work celebrations, family gatherings and extra decorating, extra cooking and extra cleaning necessary to stage the perfect holiday.

    Holidays can be a burden, leaving some folks feeling more pooped than pumped.

    Are we thankful?
    Thanksgiving and Christmas are times of the year to be thankful for the gifts and blessings we have been given and to rejoice in the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. I believe we get confused on things of importance during this season.
