Today's Opinions

  • Advice for city leaders: don’t lose momentum

    Saturday’s ribbon cutting for the river walk in Carrollton signals the crucial second step in efforts to bring more visitors to our community and to enhance local residents’ enjoyment of our river views.

    As I walked toward the river walk Sunday night, I stopped to chat with some local folks who agree the new offerings are on the verge of  “taking off.”

    The key word there is “verge.” We still have things to do that will fill the 2Rivers Campground on a regular basis and increase traffic in our downtown.

  • Health issues poll shows state making progress on many fronts

    In 2008, two non-profit organizations focused on improving our collective health began regularly asking Kentuckians their views about some of the day’s most pressing issues.

    The Kentucky Health Issues Poll has since proven to be a good barometer of what seems to be working and where more attention may be needed.

  • ‘End of Life’ program earns praise

    Editor:

    I would like to thank everyone involved in the program “End of Life.” Since I do not know many of the names, I hope this will do for a big thank you.

    The program was held at the First National Bank Friday, June 13. It answered questions about having a living will, including when you need it, when you should have it with you, how long is a valid document and who needs to sign it.

    So many of my questions were answered concerning organ donation. We need to know these things no matter what age we are. 

  • What could ‘we’ do with $100 million?

    What could we do with $100 million?

    And by “we,” we the editorial board mean we the people of Kentucky.

    We could repair a lot of roads, and anyone who has driven across the commonwealth knows how badly we need to do that. In fact, drive anywhere in the country and you will see just as many roads under construction.

  • State helps fund aspiring entrepreneurs

    When it comes to starting a business, few states can match Kentucky’s entrepreneurs.

     One index puts us fifth in this category over the last two years, with 360 Kentuckians out of every 100,000 following the dream of being their own boss.  That’s one-fourth higher than the national average.

    Steps are being taken to make it even easier for those who would like to follow suit.

  • Attend workshop Saturday for German ancestory help

    The Kentucky Genealogical Society offers a lot of great programs, and everything I’ve attended so far has been worth the drive to Frankfort.

  • Family searches for Good Samaritan

    Editor:

    My family had a head on collision on Hwy. 36 in Carroll Co. on Feb. 26, 2014. The wreck was caused by an impaired driver. My daughter was stat flighted from the scene and me and my husband were flown from Carroll County Hospital. There was a lady that stopped to help my family. She drove an SUV, I believe it was black. Not sure what the make of it was. We are pretty sure her name was Mary. And I am pretty sure she was from Indiana.
