Sept. 11, 2001, changed all of our lives, including mine. I suddenly found myself writing as much about the thousands of local men and women – most of them in military reserves and National Guard – who had been sent halfway around the world to fight, and sometimes died, in places like Anbar Province and Kabul as the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan ground on and on.

This month, the tiny planet Mercury will cross between us and the sun. This astronomical event is something that happens only 13 times every century. To mark the occasion, the Cincinnati Observatory is leading a citizen science project called "Shoot the Messenger." On Nov. 11 the observatory will assist those who want to safely observe the transit of Mercury and photograph it from 7:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

In his successful 2007 gubernatorial run, Steve Beshear lost 28 counties, winning the state’s other 92. He also lost only 28 counties in his winning reelection bid in 2011.

His son Andy Beshear, running in a similar Democrat-but-not-that-left style, won just 23 counties on Tuesday, losing the other 97. Andy Beshear’s path to victory included huge margins in Jefferson and Fayette counties, which combined he won by about 36 percentage points (68-32). But the attorney general lost the rest of the 118 counties to Gov. Matt Bevin by a combined 12 percentage points (44-56).
