Today's Opinions

  • Library programs help with early childhood development

    Children are an essential part of our library. Their presence can be seen from the time we open until the time we close. They range in age from very small babies to high school seniors.

    Our goal is to try to have something useful and meaningful for all children in our community. Early literacy is a place where we feel we can use our time and resources to assist our parents and schools. This is accomplished in several different ways.

  • New safety seat law will protect children

    One of the country’s great success stories over the last several decades has been the steep and steady decline in highway fatalities.

    It’s a welcome trend that has been especially pronounced here in Kentucky. According to the state’s Office of Highway Safety, you have to go back to 1949 to find a year that had fewer than the commonwealth had in 2013.

  • Technology is not always a ‘friend’
  • Family appreciates those who serve

    Editor:

    This letter is in dedication to all of our community firefighters, policemen and women, EMTs and first responders.

    We think, in general, people, and including ourselves, have taken these very special and much needed people and their service to our community for granted.

  • Search turns up a link to the past

    This week I’m going to preach the importance of going back and doing online searches for people you haven’t checked on for a while.

  • Westrick always had a smile on his face, served as an example for others

    This week, as you all know, we lost a great person in our community, Bruce Westrick.

    I didn’t know him well yet. In a small way, I was given the grace to be able to penetrate this man’s heart and value him for the great example that he was. I was always impressed with his happiness and positive outlook.

    He came to Mass at St. John on Saturdays at 4:30 p.m. He would sit on the bench at the back of the church.

  • Honest man turns in lost ATM card

    Editor:

    In the midst of crimes and untrustworthy people, there are still those who hold fast to their integrity.

    Not long ago, I dropped my debit card outside of Speedway in Carrollton. I did not miss it until later. I was really worried and was just getting ready to cancel it when the bank called and said they had mya card.

    The man who found it took it to my bank and put it in the night depositary. He did not stop there, but called the bank to verify that they found it.
