Why government openness matters

One of the fundamental lessons of the 9/11 tragedy was that our government carried a share of blame for the failure to stop the attacks. Not because it was asleep at the switch or ignorant of the dangers that Al Qaeda posed, but because the agencies charged with our safety did not share what they knew, either up and down the chain of command or with each other. The attacks were preventable with shared information.

FaceBook or Face-to-Face?

When Jesus spoke of the rule of law, he always did two things. First, he always embraced the law. Second, he enhanced the rule of law with the “rule” of love. In Matthew 5:38-42, Jesus cited the “law,” both scriptural and social. In fact, Jesus’ message to the people was to stare the law in the face. When “slapped” with the ultimate in a degrading insult, a backhand across the face, Jesus doesn’t completely “opt out” of the “ho...

3000 Souls Saved

On the day of Pentecost some 2000 years ago, the apostle Peter preached a sermon. He preached Jesus Christ and him crucified. For many centuries the Jews had anticipated the Anointed One of God, the Messiah, the Christ. Now Peter explains that this Jesus whom they had slain, was indeed the Lord and Christ, sent by God. (Acts 2:22-23) We can only imagine how they must have felt when they learned they had killed the Son of God? In Acts 2:37 we read, Now when they heard this, they were pricked i...

You have heard the old saying “you are in for a treat instead of a treatment”? Well, you have had it today! I am going to give you a treatment instead of a treat!!! You really can’t call it spring fever because spring has come and gone. You can’t say it’s the “DOG DAYS OF SUMMER” because summer is not officially over but I do believe that “FALL IS IN THE AIR”. Maybe that is what I can blame it on. I just have to flat out admit “my he...

Logan County

Since December 2013 I have been hospitalized off and on with a series of ailments. One thought to be fatal at first. In fact for several months it was surmised by the doctors at two different hospitals that I had one to three years to live. Some type of early stages of leukemia. That was certainly a shocker for a fellow that never missed a day in secondary school, six years of university, eight years of teaching, 28 years in Washington, D.C. and three years in Frankfort. Wow! When you get tha...

The Logan County Sheriff’s Department wants to rotate two of its older, high mileage cruisers to help keep up with the battle of ensuring the fleet is up-to-date and up-to-par. The department has 16 cruisers on the road and three spares.“It’s like a slow bleed,” said Sheriff’s Captain Stephen Stratton. “We try each year to swap out at least two cruisers in the fleet which helps slow the bleed down, but doesn’t stop it completely.”
