Today's Opinions

  • Consider giving gifts made in Kentucky

    With only about a week until Christmas, the opportunity to buy gifts is nearing a critical point for those who haven’t completed their shopping.

    If you’re among those still searching for ideas, one possible solution is to buy something produced locally.  Governor Beshear, in fact, has proclaimed December to be “Give a Gift Made in Kentucky Month,” which is highlighting the artists and businesses across the commonwealth that offer something rare if not unique.

  • Making your New Year’s resolution a permanent solution

    With the new year just around the corner many of us have the same resolution: To get in better shape.

    Some of us are hoping to lose weight or inches in certain areas. Others plan to train for events, like marathons or 5K runs. Some may even be looking to add muscularity to their frame. And then there are those who just simply want to look and feel better.

  • Legislators gear up to tackle issues facing Kentucky in the next General Assembly

    A few weeks from now, the General Assembly will return to the Capitol as it does each January to begin a new legislative session.

  • Christmas songs spread cheer in holiday season

    What is your favorite Christmas song? Certain songs are toe-tappin.’ Others stir up strong emotion. But all Christmas music, in particular, is magical.

    Many of us have strong opinions on what we believe is good Christmas music versus just plain obnoxious. But all of them evoke some sort of memory. The magic transports us to another place and time.

    Christmas is filled with all sorts of traditions and memories, and music traditions are no exception.

  • Veteran says thanks for opportunity to speak

    Editor:

    I would like to say a big thank you to Mrs. (Dana) Oak at the middle school. I was asked by her to speak to the student body and staff on Nov. 11, Veterans Day. I was honored by the way the program was delivered. I was asked not to use any salty language. Mrs. Oak, to my knowledge, I was on task.

     

    Respectfully,

    I would like to thank Chris and Robert from Herb Kinman’s Chevrolet for their assistance with much needed transportation help. It would have been difficult with out their help. Thank you and God Bless.

  • Annual Nutcracker Tea a cherished tradition

    There are many times we find ourselves in a constant state of change.  I find this to be especially true in the accelerated world we live in now. 

    The library has gone through many changes in 2014.  Some have been small, some have been big, and some have been epic, like a giant caterpillar.
