  • Shopping at small businesses can make big impact on local economy

    By Tom Underwood

    Every year, Gallup asks people how much confidence they have in various institutions.

    The results aren’t surprising. Only 8 percent had “a great deal” or “quite a lot” of confidence in Congress. Big business scored 21 percent. That’s no better than TV news.

  • Higher education paying off for Kentuckians

    In the late 1990s, the state rolled out a simple but effective campaign summarized by two words: “Education pays.”

    That popular slogan came on the heels of a landmark overhaul of our public postsecondary schools and the creation of such programs as KEES, the lottery-based college scholarships that high school students earn with good grades, and “Bucks for Brains,” which added hundreds of millions of state and private dollars to our university research budgets.

    Wisdom played basketball and ran track and cross country at Henry County High School in the late 1990s.

  • Large or small: the rich get richer

    Over the last four years I have witnessed hundreds of high school sporting events and the one impression that always sticks in my mind is the vast amount of difference in talent levels and performance among high school teams – even among schools placed in size classifications such as football and track.

    I have witnessed teams that performed so poorly that the sport they were playing was almost unrecognizable.

    I would walk away and say to myself, “That has to be the worst team in the state.”
