Today's Opinions

  • Create a place for skate boarders to go

    I am writing in response to the article on banning skate boards. The activities for our children in New Castle are limited. If the children are skate boarding instead of selling drugs on our streets than why are we taking away their enjoyment?

    We as our children's leaders must look for other ways to fix this solution. We do not have to build an extravagant skate board park such as downtown Louisville, but what about building an area such as the one in LaGrange?

  • Legislative focus with Rick Rand

    While most legislative sessions are generally remembered for two or three major accomplishments, there are often dozens of other laws that positively affect our lives, even if they do not generate as much news.

    In recent years, we in the House have included many of these initiatives in our "Commitment to Kentucky Families" agenda. "Taken together, they are designed to improve our schools, our collective health and the way we interact with state government. "All are affordable, commonsense measures.

  • Senator Harris' Report from Frankfort

    This week we concentrated on the brave men and women in the military who are sacrificing so much during this time to defend our country and on the most defenseless among us, the unborn. "The Senate passed a series of bills to aid our military and comprehensive pro-life legislation.

  • Comments returning to hclocal.com

    Since the launch of our new internet platform, we've been tweaking a few things.

    One feature we lost with the new platform was our old guestbook. Not many folks used it, however, so if you didn't know it was there, you certainly didn't miss it.

    We added a new feature to our Web site lst week, though that brings back the ability to comment on our site. Only instead of signing a guestbook, you'll actually be able to comment on each story.

    There is a catch, however — in order to leave a comment, you'll have to register with a valid e-mail address.

  • You never think it will happen to you

    Over the years, I've covered more than a few accidents. Some severe, some not so severe. I've had loved ones in accidents. My own husband was involved in a rather severe motorcycle accident in 2005.

    Like most folks, I never thought it would happen to me. But it did.

  • Military takes center stage in state House

    As is often the case during the early stages of a legislative session, the House and Senate spend the first few weeks focusing on their respective agendas, adopting bills each hopes the other chamber will consider favorably.

    For the House last week, the military took center stage, as we unanimously approved legislation designed to help our veterans and those soldiers still serving.

  • Danville Main Street Program clarified

    I read the article submitted by City Commissioner Tim Royalty with much dismay. His reference to Danvilles Main Street Program should be clarified.

  • Thank you for pool vote

    As a resident of the great city of Eminence I would like to say to my mayor and city council, thank you for showing us that our kids count. Thank you for voting to open the pool.

    I'd also like to thank Making Waves for all the hard work that they put into helping make this possible for all the kids in our community.

    I feel that everyone young and old will greatly benefit from this. Our kids have an opportunity to make some great memories with friends and family and we parents will be spared our sanity.
