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.

  • 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

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.

    If you drop by the COMPASS offices at 125 Park Road in New Castle during business hours, you will be greeted by friendly faces and welcoming smiles.  

    When I visited Joan Miles and Stephanie Sharp Cravens on a sunny August afternoon recently, their offices were bathed in the kind of natural light that invites conversation and sharing.
