Today's Opinions

  • Know the facts, seek out unbiased sources

    There’s a lot of talk these days about fake news.
    There’s even a Wikipedia page for fake news, which of course, could be fake itself.

  • Assessing this session’s good and bad

    The 2017 session of the Kentucky General Assembly is now history, and with its conclusion comes the consideration of what was accomplished, both good and bad, and how the adoption of these policies will play out for the future of the Commonwealth.
    It was a busy session, with 793 bills introduced overall, and 203 approved by both chambers.

  • Stand up for the rights of all to disagree

    In a world seemingly awash in political strife, there’s a drip, drip, drip of condescension and negativity that threatens to erode all of our civil rights.

    Of course, the forum front and center in my concern is none other than Facebook, where it’s easier than ever to verbally abuse someone who is different from ourselves or who holds differing beliefs. 

  • The facts back public schools

    Since we became a state in 1792, Kentucky has been committed to education. It is that commitment that led to key education decisions in the Civil Rights movement, the passage of the landmark 1990 Kentucky Education Reform Act (KERA) and the 19-year-old Kentucky Postsecondary Education Improvement Act.

  • This is what democracy looks like

    Regardless of how you voted last November it’s impossible to deny our country is changing right before our eyes. It’s not an overstatement to say that the new administration will not only re-ignite the women’s movement, but galvanize our populous to seriously take a look at civil rights, human rights and religious tolerance.

    I’m motivated on a dozen levels after attending the Women’s March in DC.  

  • Military sacrifices

    My grandson was deployed recently, and I couldn’t be there to see him off. My heart longed to support him and my daughter, his mother, but circumstances beyond my control wouldn’t allow it.

  • Efforts to combat substance abuse

    Someone abuses drugs every hour in Kentucky. But just how people are addicted to drugs in Kentucky is hard to quantify. 

    The reason for that is not every addict seeks treatment and many die as a result. A record number of 1,248 people died from overdoses in 2015 alone, according to the state. 

  • Town has power to decide park's future

    Not long ago, the Eminence City Council made a commitment to citizens to provide a recreational amenity and to enhance Coach D Park, and now they’re making an appeal that everyone help protect this public investment.

    The sprayground cost about $110,000 to install. About half of that came from the state, and Eminence city officials put aside about $60,000 for the required match for the state funds.
