Today's Opinions

  • Cool weather brings the time to cook up a pot of chili

    Hello again my friends. I’m looking out the window as I type this month’s article, watching the cool rain stream down the windowpane.

    The calendar says it’s fall, and I must say it now officially feels like it. Cool, wind and leaves changing colors have brought the feeling of what’s to come. While cold and snow might still be on their way, the foods of fall are already here.

  • Two voters support Grimes in race

    Editor: 

    Be an informed voter. It will soon be time to vote in the upcoming election. Before you vote, did you know you can go online and check out the voting record of candidates? We did just that and you can too.

    At the end of this letter will be an Internet address you can access to check the facts we have found. 

    Here is what we found, Sen. Mitch McConnell’s voting records:

  • McConnell can make Senate action on bills

    Editor:

    This election is the most important in our lifetime. I believe Obama has froze the Senate only Harry Reid can approve any legislation that needs to be voted on. No one else has any authority.

    If McConnell wins this election he will be able to ensure bills can be voted on in the Senate. If Grimes wins nothing can occur legislatively without Reid and Obama’s approval. Hence then we are frozen in the Senate until Obama leaves in two years.

  • Owen resident supports McConnell for Congress

    Editor:

    In the interest of doing what is best for Kentucky and the nation, I request your vote for Mitch McConnell.  I ask that you consider the following:

    Experience— real experience in the Congressional Legislative process — does count.  Clearly Mitch has the overwhelming advantage over Alison’s documented lack of relevant experience.

    It is important that elected officials in Washington have our interest at heart and not their own. 

  • Store works to help local families in need

    Editor:

    I would like to take the time to personally thank the community for all the wonderful support and donations we receive at “Our Little Thrift Store,” located next to Traderbakers on Hwy. 227. It has always been a dream to some day open a business of my own and to also be able to help by giving back to those who need a helping hand. Our Little Thrift Store has provided the opportunity to do so in so many different ways.

  • Spread the facts on breast cancer, not just in October

    The Kentucky Standard

    Your bra is not giving you breast cancer.

    Your deodorant is not giving you breast cancer.

    Coffee is not giving you breast cancer.

    Mammograms are not giving you breast cancer.

    In a large percentage of cases, your genes aren’t even giving you breast cancer.

  • Number of ‘Made in Kentucky’ products increasing; Aerospace is biggest exporter

    In recent days, the state’s Cabinet for Economic Development has been highlighting an industry that can be summed up in three words: Made in Kentucky.

    It’s a phrase that applies to more and more products every year.  According to the Cabinet, we now have more than 4,000 factories, and their 220,000 employees manufacture about $27 billion worth of goods, a third more than they did just five years ago.

  • Grant Co. resident supports Threlkeld

    Editor:

    I am writing this letter to ask the people in this county to elect John Brent Threlkeld to the office of Circuit Court Judge. In the seven years I have known him, he has grown into a very trusted friend, and I know he is the best person for this job.
