  • Letters: Pension rhetoric is wrong

    Park does not care for the pension rhetoric
    The rhetoric this past week has been fascinating. The passage of Senate Bill 151 has been labeled “unethical,” developed in “secret meetings” and passed in the dead of the night without actuarial analysis or any time to read the bill. Some have even stated that attaching Senate Bill 1 to Senate Bill 151 was illegal. None of this is true.

  • Reckoning with Addiction: Pain and the way we hurt by John Inscore Essick

    Recently I spoke with Drs. Donna and Damon Gatewood about pain and how opioid abuse is changing the way they practice medicine.
    They are both family doctors who see patients of all ages (Donna in Crestwood and Damon in Campbellsburg) and regularly provide medication-assisted treatment of opioid addiction at a clinic in Louisville.
    The Gatewoods routinely see patients who are seeking relief from acute and/or chronic pain.
    Acute pain is the body’s signal that we need immediate medical attention for a broken bone or kidney stone. In time, acute pain will go away.

  • Letter: Grateful that a trooper stopped to help

    Grateful that a trooper stopped to help
    On March 14, I was on my way to work and my car blew a tire. My brother came to change my tire. As I watched I thought of many people who have no one to help them.
    In a stormy situation, God can come to our rescue. For me, I think, that was not only my brother, but a Kentucky State Police officer Sgt. Mitchell. Mr. Mitchell pulled up to see if I needed any help — what a blessing for him to be stationed at Campbellsburg post!
    God always has a plan and for that I am grateful.

  • A hidden gem - appreciating the sense of community

    Somehow I’ve managed to bypass Port Royal during my four years here in Henry County, and only made it out there finally just because a suspect recently declined to stop for a police officer and I wanted to take a photo of the smashed personal vehicle that resulted from that intransigence.
    What an idyllic place — to have at least two businesses with just a handful of residents nearby is quite a feat in this day and time.
    From my windshield survey, I believe Port Royal probably serves as an exemplar of what small towns across the country used to be like.
