Today's Opinions

  • Falling through the charitable system

    Many Christmases ago, hard times hit the DiFazio clan. The kids were just in elementary school.

    Dad was finding it increasingly hard to deal with the debilitating effects of Multiple Sclerosis.

    Add to that the failure of both local businesses where he and I had worked for years.

    This perfect storm combined to leave us penniless at “the most wonderful time of the year.”
    I had been a part of charity in action most of my life, on the giving side.

  • Thanks for help with Christmas in New Castle

  • No interruption in Home Health service

  • There’s nothing like a book in hand

    The story on NPR Tuesday morning left me shaking my head.

    At the heart of the story was the question of whether or not print, specifically in this case the printed book, is dead, and how that will impact book stores large and small, chain or independent.

    Call me a luddite if you wish, but I refuse to believe that the physical book will ever really die.

    Raised in a household of readers, I grew up surrounded by books. A home is not a home for me until the bookshelves are up and laden with books.

  • Magistrate responds to criticism

    In response to Mr. Jon Parks’ letter to the editor in last week’s paper (“Get your own house in order, first,” Dec. 8), I think it is first important to note who Jon Parks is and why he would write such a letter.

  • Making Christmas special in Henry County

    Nestled in southeast Henry County in the village of Bethlehem is a treasure – the little Bethlehem post office. And yes, I am prejudiced, but perhaps less because I happen to live in Bethlehem than because of the hustle and bustle that I have experienced in big-city post offices, such as New York, Washington, Philadelphia, Baltimore and, most recently, Louisville.
