Today's Opinions

  • Paula Deen’s remarks evoke over-reaction by national sponsors

    I find it ironic that the television media and tabloids have grabbed the torches and pitchforks to drive Paula Deen out of her cable television empire for admitting to, way in the past, making racist remarks, telling unfortunate jokes or having had a fascination with an overly romanticized idea of life on a southern plantation: Wealthy whites being served by blacks – whether as pre-Civil War slaves or post-Emancipation free men and women.

  • Bath salts, synthetic marijuana dangerous substances to avoid

    As Champions for a Drug Free Carroll County coordinator there is an abundance of reporting that must be done in order to continue to receive grants, that makes our coalition possible.

  • Davy takes sabbatical, thanks community for prayers, support

    I have received several enquiries regarding my sabbatical leave. I hope this note will answer most of the questions.

    I have been serving in the diocese of Covington for the last seven-and-a-half years. It has been 15 years since I left my native country, India. I served nine years in Kenya prior to my arrival in the United States.

    I asked permission from the Most Reverend Bishop Foys and my Provincial Superior to allow me to take a one-year sabbatical leave. With their permission, I am taking sabbatical leave from July to June 2014.

  • Library serves hundreds in county every day

    This library has been a fixture in our community for close to 75 years. We pride ourselves on being a valuable asset that only serves to enhance the quality of life to the citizens of Carroll County. As a matter of fact, that is the crux of our mission statement. But how do we do that? 

  • Lawmakers work on bills for next year

    The interim period is upon us. This is the time between the regular legislation sessions when committees meet jointly with both Senate and House members, we discuss issues that will likely come up in January, and begin to vet legislation drafts.

    We also have the opportunity to schedule meetings throughout the state as we try to bring Frankfort to more citizens. Besides serving as chairman of the Transportation Committee, I am also a member of five other committees that require my attention on matters ranging from the budget to veterans issues.

  • Thank you for tornado donations

    Editor:

    I’d like to take a minute to thank everyone who was involved with our tornado relief trip to Oklahoma a couple weeks ago.  So many people stepped up with items to donate, words of encouragement, monetary donations, help sorting and boxing, and most of all prayers and concern, that we were really overwhelmed emotionally.
