Today's Opinions

  • Personal training – Hard is the easy part

    Today the plethora of personal training experts have a lot of differences. On the other hand, they can all get one thing right – making a workout hard! It is not just trainers, it is people themselves. Heavier, faster, more difficult, more props. We as the fitness community certainly like to have fun with the plethora of possibilities. We love constant variety.

  • Local students honored at annual awards banquet

    It is hard to admit that, on a state level, Carroll County has not received the greatest news coverage. Whether deserved or not, sometimes it is hard to see the bad things reported about the community we live and raise our children in. Like many other small towns, we celebrate our victories quietly and together as a community. Last Wednesday was a perfect example of that.

  • Mammoth Cave celebrates 200 years

    Next year, Kentucky’s tourism industry will mark a major milestone when Mammoth Cave celebrates the 200th anniversary of its first commercial tour.

  • Mix cardio and weight training in your plans

    When it comes to burning off fat, which is more effective cardio or weight training? Most of you probably answered that with cardio. Many people think that is correct, when in reality they both can be effective in fat loss. Weight training is more effective when it comes to building muscle, but don’t leave it out when it comes to burning fat. How in the world you ask?

  • Massie calls for repeal of the Patriot Act

    Congress faces a critical deadline, and time is running out.  On June 1, 2015, three provisions of the USA PATRIOT Act will expire.  The actions of the United States Congress between today and June 1st will affect the privacy and liberty of millions of innocent Americans.

  • Funding public higher education

    The Courier-Journal

    After eight years of brutal budget cuts, Kentucky’s system of public higher education is at a critical juncture.

    Kentucky’s universities and community colleges could continue to hike tuition and create more financial barriers to a college degree.

    Or education leaders can make the case that the state legislature must begin to restore some of the millions of dollars it has cut from higher education since 2007, around the beginning of the recession.
