Oh, Kentucky

Christmas parades: Benton, Burnside, Cave City, Edmonton, Elkton, Livermore, McKee, Nicholasville, Princeton, Quality and Sacramento, today; Auburn, Central City and Edmonton, Dec. 14; Lewisburg, Dec. 19, and Rabbit Hash, Dec. 20.

Good jobs news from Warsaw. Unsettling from Henderson, Morganfield and Sturgis.

"On Main Streets Across Kentucky ... It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas," per the Kaintuckeean.

"My dad may have had a simple message and not very eloquent of speech, but he spoke Christian without having to say a word. That’s the language we should all learn to speak. And if Christianity is a term you’re not comfortable affiliating yourself with maybe the simplistic message of a true Christian would be more fitting which is, goodwill toward all. I fully understand there will be philosophical and doctrinal differences between just about every church, tabernacle, mosque or other houses of worship, even some of the same denomination. We must learn and understand that it is OK to agree to disagree and still love each other regardless. Yes, my dad was a serpent handler. I am proud of that and hope to carry that tradition on throughout the rest of my life." Rest in peace, Pastor Fields.
