  • Open records proposal deserves support

    Open records laws exist for a reason.

    These are two of the most important aspects of open records laws.

  • Providing cold comfort to winter haters

    Temperatures reach 70 degrees on New Year’s Day and nobody bats an eye, but if the winter forecast calls for even a moderate amount of snow, people lose their minds.

    Personally, I enjoy living in a temperate zone with four seasons and the benefits that arise with cold and the frozen stuff.

  • District seeding picture still unclear

    As we approach the final weeks of the high school basketball regular season, the 31st district seeding picture has cleared a little but is still murky in some regards.

    On the boys’ side it has been clear for a while now that Owen County would be the number one seed and play the winner of the 4-5 seed game.

    Now that Henry County has pulled out a thriller at Eminence, the Wildcats have four wins and have guaranteed themselves a place as a two or three seed. They stand at 4-3 in district games.
