Yes, it’s another story about Pokemon Go. The hunting is good in LouisvilleKY

By Jackie Hollenkamp Bentley Pokemon Go. Yeah, I’m playing it. And so is my husband. And so is my dad. Yes, my 80-year-old dad.

Then, when you’re in the car with your girlfriend and it comes time to go out to dinner, you can’t pull up the list from the recesses of your brain, and you end up at Olive Garden (just kidding, I don’t go there). On Tuesday I crossed one of those new spots off my list in spectacular fashion. After a drink at Volare for the NFocus Farewell Party (that print publication put out…

Gambling’s History in Kentucky

  The history of gambling in Kentucky can be traced back to the gambling clubs that came into existence just before the Great Depression; and after that period.  At that point, it was illegal to engage in any form of casino gambling but it didn’t stop the avalanche of gambling dens from springing forth. Contributing factors to this were the proximity of Ohio and the presence of organised crime gangs that had control over most of the activities that happened in Newport and other northern parts of the state.

Spirituality in the Church Today

Spirituality in the Church Today – Controversial Issues It doesn’t matter how well informed we are as a society, there will always be dissention among believers because everyone seems to have a different interpretation of their holy book.
