This weekend we are exactly five months away from the due date of our baby boy. That seems like it’s still a while, but my wife, Carmen, and I both know it will be here in the blink of an eye.
By 8 a.m. Wednesday I was two mugs of coffee in, dressed and seated at the kitchen table with my laptop writing about the latest news concerning county road projects. By most days' standards, I was ahead of the day and hopeful as I juggled my oatmeal along with my typing.
I was so excited to share with you all about our baby boy due in July that I just had to spend the past couple of columns writing about it. But for this weekend, it has been hard to focus on anything except the historic flooding the Tri-County area has seen.
I've always fancied anything by Appalachian author George Ella Lyon. A dear friend of mine reminded me of one of her most beloved books just this week, "Come a tide."
A few weeks ago I asked my brother what he was getting his girlfriend for Valentine's Day, and looking sideways at me, he matter of factly blurted out “nothing.”
Coming as a surprise to absolutely no one who has had the pleasure of working with Glasgow’s own Ronnie Ellis, the former statehouse and Daily Times reporter is among the members of the 40th class of the Kentucky Journalism Hall of Fame.
“By forces seemingly antagonistic and destructive Nature accomplishes her beneficent designs — now a flood of fire, now a flood of ice, now a flood of water; and again in the fullness of time an outburst of organic life.” —John Muir
Last week, I shared the exciting news about how my wife, Carmen, and I are expecting the arrival of our baby boy this July. I also mentioned how we had announced it to everyone on Facebook two weeks ago. However, I didn't really have the chance to go into detail about how we announced it on Facebook exactly.
The realization that you're indeed peculiar, different, and remodeled spiritually can often be a humbling one. Often I go through seasons in which I forget, and then collectively all at once I'm reminded something has changed deep in my gut.
Thank goodness this year’s Super Bowl was more exciting than last year’s. I don’t think I would be very successful getting my girlfriend to agree to watch next year’s game, if this year’s had been as defensively dominant as last year’s.
I was reminded recently that it’s been a very long time since I’ve done a pop culture column, one of those listicle-style columns where I share with you all what I’ve been consuming lately. (By that I mean books and television and the like. Not food. That’s what my Instagram is for.)
I have been writing this column for seven years now, and throughout that time period I’ve shared a lot of old stories with you. But over the course of the next six months, and especially starting this summer, I’ll have many new stories to tell.
When an electric company began laying pipes below a city street, the first thing its comfort minded foreman did was to arrange for a comfort station to be erected above a city sewer. While a make-shift men's room hardly looked like the Taj Mahal, it was just what Stanley was hoping to find as he was hurrying down the street one afternoon.
