Today's Opinions

  • Veterans Day began after WWI

    On Nov. 11, our nation will come together as it has for nearly a century to pay tribute to those who have sacrificed their time, talents and even their lives and limbs to preserve our freedom.

  • Five ways to boost body’s natural growth hormone

    For the hard training athlete, growth hormone is a splendid thing. Produced naturally by the body, this hormone repairs muscle tissue, builds muscle tissue, burns fat, enhances metabolism and speeds overall recovery. It may sound too good to be true. While this hormonal fountain of youth is not without limits, there are ways you can manipulate certain aspects of training and diet to keep your natural growth hormone levels topped off night and day.


  • Get out the vote in the 2015 General Election


    Hundreds of thousands of young Americans are serving our military to preserve our way of life, and yet fewer and fewer of our citizens are participating in our democracy. Nov. 3 is General Election Day when Kentuckians will be selecting candidates for governor, commissioner of agriculture and other constitutional officers. Members of Carroll County Farm Bureau hope every voter will make their voices heard by casting informed votes for our government leaders.

  • Legislators work to address domestic violence, trafficking, bullying, other issues

    As a matter of public policy, domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking and bullying were seldom discussed for much of our country’s history, much less adequately addressed. 

    Thankfully, that era is largely behind us.  Today, society is much more aware of these acts of aggression and how to stop them, and as a result, we’re seeing a greater number of victims get the care they deserve.

  • District canned food drive will begin Nov. 16

    Even though the annual canned food drive is three weeks away, schools in the Carroll County School District are already gearing up. The district’s food drive will run from Nov. 16-20. The stakes are high this year, with Superintendents Hogan and Oak promising to dress as clowns for a day if the district collects at least 17,000 items by the end of the week.

  • Gillespie: Open heart to gay community


    The world is a constantly changing place, and rural communities have historically been slowest to catch up.

  • Elect politicians who will stand up for Christian faith


    I am not a liberal/progressive Democrat. I’m not a Republican. My party is the Watchmen Party. Read Ezekiel chapter 33 in the Bible.

    It’s not about what party you’re in. If you are a godly man or woman, one day you will stand before the Lord Jesus and you will have to give an account of what you do or say. We need to put men or women in office/position who will stand up for our Christian faith.
