Today's Opinions

  • Spring is a great time to be a blood donor

    Get rooted in the Red Cross this spring. Donate blood and become part of its ever growing family tree; join about 3.3 million blood donors nationwide in a lifesaving cause.

    “Every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood,” Tim Ryerson, CEO of the River Valley Blood Services Region said. The Red Cross must collect enough blood donations every day to meet the needs of cancer patients, trauma victims, organ transplant recipients, premature babies with complications, sickle cell disease patients and others.

  • Divide and conquer strategy blurs vision

    Average Joe

    A nice fellow has been traveling around the county lately, soliciting the assistance of others in helping those who are unable to help themselves. I intend to support his cause. I have seen his presentation twice—it is a gentle, soft-sell pitch in which he asks for our help. During both presentations he used the phrase “this is not a hand out.”

  • No budget, but several new laws will benefit Kentucky

    AG Jack Conway not representing people

    In 2004 Kentucky voters voted overwhelmingly to amend the Kentucky constitution to protect the historic definition of marriage. The amendment reads:

    “Only a marriage between one man and one woman shall be valid or recognized as a marriage in Kentucky. A legal status identical or substantially similar to that of marriage for unmarried individuals shall now be valid or recognized.”

  • Fighting libraries is counterintuitive

    If I were to take a poll of all of Kentucky, I wonder how many people would tell me that they had never used a library for anything. My guess is very few. Libraries are the sort of institutions that you use without ever realizing how important they are, and how strange life would be if they weren’t there.

  • Vote for what you believe so we know where you stand

    Henry County GOP Chairman

    James 5:12 says “let your yes be yes and your no be no.  Stand up for what you believe.

    The Iceman Cometh

    The Iceman, the Snowman, the Zerotemp man cometh to Henry County over and over again during the last few months. Incredibly beautiful pictures of the stark white landscape only served to bring complaints of power outages, frozen water pipes, missed school days. The list goes on and on. Since we choose to live in a rural area, with all the advantages it has to offer, sometimes the disadvantages get the better of us.
