Today's Opinions

  • Watchman party goals

    It’s time to fight back against liberalism, moderate progressive Democrats and Republicans who are being deceived and blinded by Satan. Also, the Republican establishment is starting to be deceived and blinded by Satan.

    Now, not all Republicans are deceived and blinded, and as far as Democrats nationally, they are deceived. I’m talking about those who do state work — governor, congress, judicial, etc. I hadn’t seen local Democrats being deceived yet.

  • Radio station memories

    I found your article on WSTL very interesting and thought you might want another part of the history of the station when it was brought back to life in 1966 by Woody and Helen. 

    They were two dedicated people who loved broadcasting especially, to the local fans in their community of Eminence. I miss both of them dearly. Woody gave me my first break into the business. I am forever grateful to both of them.

  • Doing what might be the most difficult job

    Part of my job involves the unenviable task of going to and reporting on tragic events like fires and car accidents, some of which involve loss of life. There are only a handful of people – police officers and emergency responders, mainly – that would ever see what takes place at the scene.

  • Connecting Kentucky to the world

    Three months ago, when the Washington Post ran a story comparing peak broadband internet speeds among the states, the news for Kentucky was not good: We came in last, behind Arkansas.  Our rate is half of what can be found in Virginia, which placed second.

  • Protecting our road funds

    At a recent House Rules committee hearing, one of my colleagues from New York declared that the potholes in the roads in her district are so bad, “you can lose your car in them.”  Kentuckians and Americans from all over the country agree. It is long past time that something was done to address the deplorable state of the highways and infrastructure in this country. 

  • Outdoor events always at mercy of Mother Nature

    A good event planner thinks of everything. After choosing a date, picking just the right venue, setting a schedule, lining up participants and volunteers, there are hundreds of emails and phone calls to confirm all the plans and be as ready as possible for the big day.

    Despite all efforts, there is one aspect of the day that even the best planner has absolutely no control over – the weather.
