Today's Opinions

  • Coming soon: New look for hclocal.com

    If you visited our Website over the weekend, you may have noticed something different.

    It was a brief, unintentional unveiling of our new platform. As the platform wasn’t supposed to debut until Dec. 4, the old website was put back up almost as soon as we noticed the faux pas.

    There’s no denying that our soon-to-be old website left quite a bit to be desired. In fact, we were more than a little embarrassed by it. It was not the professional product we wanted to deliver to you.

  • Hats off to art event organizers

  • Donations needed for Sunrise Children’s Services

    Christmas is a time for joy, but for hundreds of Kentucky children who are victims of abuse and neglect, Christmas joy depends on the generosity of people like you.

    Sunrise Children’s Services provides care for over 500 of these children across Kentucky and we need your help in making their Christmas a little brighter this year. Your donation can help provide children and teens with a few simple toys, needed clothes, and other presents that they’ll get to open on Christmas morning.

  • I’m thankful for many things today

    It never fails. As we head into Thanksgiving week, my thoughts turn into what I’m thankful for — I imagine many of us experience that.
    Throughout the year, I think of these things, but often don’t write them down.

  • Government taking steps to be more open and responsive

    When we think of state and local governments, it is certainly understandable that much of our focus is on elected offices.  They are the ones, after all, that ultimately decide the direction the Commonwealth takes.

    But that should not underscore the critical importance of literally hundreds of quasi-government boards and agencies that range from the large – like the Kentucky Lottery Corporation – to such smaller ones as water, fire and library districts.  They, too, touch our daily lives, often in ways we may not even realize.

  • Courage with a Vision

    It’s that time of year again when children and children at heart alike will dress up in celebration of Halloween and while some of them will attempt to cause the biggest fright reaction, all of them will go back to being normal the next day. What’s really scary is the lack of vision and courage our current jailer presents.
