Today's Opinions

  • In support of Eastern Colts

    As a former HCYFL coach, I appreciate Tommie Kendall’s HCL article last week to raise local awareness of the sudden drop in numbers of our youth football participation, particularly in the Eastern Elementary School District.
    A big factor that always seems to result in low numbers of kids playing for the Eastern Colts is the fact that the district covers such a wide, rural area. Some may feel it’s too much of a drive to get their kids to practice every day or that the cost involved is too much to pay.    

  • You’re probably from Henry County if...

    Do you remember the days when cruising was a weekly event?
    Or the days of the Eminence v. Henry County football games?
    Or how about B&D Video or Lola’s Restaurant in Eminence?
    Or, better yet, do you remember the days of Big Henry?
    If so, you’re probably from Henry County.
    It’s the latest Facebook rage — community pages where folks share their favorite memories from the communities they grew up in. The memories are touching, funny, sad and some a smidge risque.

  • Bravery and grace, despite her pain

    Pain was clearly etched on her face, and she gripped her daughter’s hand like a vice while a registered nurse changed a wound dressing.
    Within a few minutes the change was complete, the vacuum pump for the wound turned on and Mary did the strangest thing.

    She thanked the RN despite the obvious pain she had just caused. “Thank you, hon,” she said, squeezing the nurse’s hand.

    Mary is one of two women in my life who I am proud to call mother, though her title has a step- in front of it.

  • Amendment will prevent future debt crises

    Our country is facing a debt crisis.  The federal government currently borrows 40 cents of every dollar it spends.  This year the government will spend $1.5 trillion more than it takes in, adding to a national debt that is already more than $14.3 trillion, two and a half times the size it was just a decade ago in 2001.

  • Summer tragedies can be avoided

    Summer is here and we’re already seeing the dreaded headlines about children who are left inside hot cars, leading to heat stroke and even death.

    Since 1998, at least 13 children in Kentucky have died as a result of being left inside sweltering vehicles while their parents or caregivers shop, go to work or run errands. It’s just another example of the abuse and neglect that plagues Kentucky’s children.
