The story goes that one day the devil and St. Peter decided they were going to have a basketball game. St. Peter said, “There's no way you can beat us; heaven has all the best players.” And the devil said, “I'm not the least bit worried; we've got all the officals.” That's how Lisa Mattingly, one of the top women's basketball officials in the nation, broke the ice at the yearly Jessamine County head-coaches meeting on Aug. 3. ...

Dear Editor: I don't understand the clergy in the military. Where is their faith? Do they want to be right in the sight of men or God? I think it's time for some backbone by the military clergy and all Christians. It's really plain in the Bible. If we deny the name of Jesus, he will deny us to his father in heaven! In the name Of Jesus, I pray for boldness in the body of Christ. Patti James Danville

I always was told never to talk about politics or religion in an open forum such as this column, but I felt called to respond to a headline I saw. While watching the evening news, a quote came out from Steven Hawking. He is a premier physicist of our time; think of Sheldon on “The Big Bang Theory.” It went like this: “Heaven is a fairy story for people who are afraid of the dark. I regard the brain as a computer, which will stop working when its components fail. There is no heaven or afterlife for broken-down computers.” Wait!

Dear Editor: I would like to send a thank-you to Lori Stipes. My preacher says that when you bind things together they are difficult to break and that is what has happened here. When Christians are banded together they are only going to get stronger. So, again, I say thank you. If we don't talk about God in our daily lives is our name going to be mentioned in heaven when we die? It's one of those "you scratch my back and I'll scratch yours" type of questions.
