Today's Opinions

  • More evidence we need the REINS Act

    Traveling through Kentucky’s Fourth District during the August district work period, I have had the chance to speak with a number of small business owners, local bankers, health care providers and farmers who are very concerned about the impact of new regulations on their businesses.  They want to know: what is being done to deal with the unaccountable onslaught of these job-crushing rules?

  • Thanks to you!

    We want to thank the many individuals, organizations, and churches that have made donations of clothes, food, hygiene, school supplies, etc. in the past few months!  We appreciate the churches and individuals so much for all of the time that they volunteered during the Hearts of Grace Clothes Give Away!  Without the many hearts and hands of the community, this event would not have taken place!  You served over 500 people (adults and children) with clothes!

  • More history in Frankfort than can be covered in one trip

    While the classroom experience for Kentucky students invariably changes from decade to decade, there is still one constant that binds one generation to the next: A field trip to the state capital.

    Thousands of children make the trek each year, seeing such common sites as the larger-than-life statue of President Lincoln in the Capitol Rotunda and, just a few miles away, the Old State Capitol’s self-supporting staircase, which for more than 180 years has been anchored by a well-placed keystone.

  • Sense of charity has defined country

    Winston Churchill once famously remarked that we make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.

    That sense of charity has defined our country from the beginning, and even when times are tough, we don’t hesitate to reach out and help.

  • Success at school hinges upon stability at home

    Summer is nearing an end and children all across Kentucky have or soon will be headed back to school. While many students may groan at the thought of homework, tests, book reports and science projects, most are also excited to see old friends and to get a fresh start on a new year.

  • Back-to-school resources for students, parents and teachers

    August is a special time of year, full of new beginnings.  Whether it is the first day of kindergarten, middle school, high school or college, each new school year brings excitement and new challenges for families, students, teachers and administrators.  Pat and I have two kids in college, three starting a new school year, and our eldest daughter is a teacher.  Our family is getting ready for an exciting new school year.
