Today's Opinions

  • ‘Back to school’ shopping far different from the past

    I was in Staples the other day with a friend and was awed by the size and variety of displays for “Back to School” supplies. I think the one that totally blew me away was the one labeled “Locker Accessories.” Accessories for the locker?

  • Library thanks United Charities

  • Family thanks those who helped with Poker Run

    Editor:

    We would like to extend our sincere thanks to the many local businesses and friends who donated to the William Meadows Poker Run and Hog Roast.  We would like to especially thank the band, Kentucky Chrome, for donating their time and Don and Joanie Smith of DJ’s Tavern for letting us use their facility.  Without all the time, love, and support, the Poker Run and Hog Roast would not have been such a success.

     Thank you,

    The Meadows Family

  • Budget cuts hollowing out court system

    As chief justice, I find it disheartening that I can no longer assure you that the courts in Kentucky will be open when you need them. For the first time in modern history, we will have to close every courthouse in the state to balance the Judicial Branch budget. For three days in 2012, we must furlough all court personnel and close all courthouse doors because the General Assembly has not allotted enough money to fund court operations at current levels.

  • Colorado tragedy should not be politicized

    Editor:

        Shame on you, Jarrett Boyd, for jumping on the bandwagon of people who want to politicize the tragedy in Colorado.  And yes, using the phrase “gun control” makes it political.  Now is not the time for political hand-wringing.  It is time to allow the families of the victims of mass-murder to grieve, and offer the survivors our sympathy and support.

  • Liven up a summer party with Bloody Mary tomatoes

     I spent several hours with my Club Sisters this past weekend discussing a menu we were going to prepare together.  Of course, we got off on our many tangents, because that is what talking about food does for anyone.  It started with us reminiscing about foods we had had throughout the years and oh how good they were.

  • Photos still needed to complete photo book on Carroll County

    With my final deadline now just a couple of weeks away, time is running out and I am now to a point where I’m looking only for specific photos to make this Carroll County book project complete.

    I have already scanned hundreds of wonderful photos, and now I have to go through and determine which ones will “make the cut.” Thank you to everyone who has donated these images.
