Today's Opinions

  • Fall Fling is Oct. 2

    The 11 th Annual New Castle Fall Fling is Saturday, October 2 from 10 am til 4 pm.  We will have arts & crafts, flea markets, exhibits, food booths, live entertainment, children’s activities, farmer’s market, citywide yard sales, quilt show, car, truck and tractor show, and much more. 

  • Kentucky played no small part in women’s history

    Our country celebrated a major milestone: the 90th anniversary of the day when women were granted the right to vote.

    In the push for equality, Kentucky has been a pioneer in many ways.  We became the first state to grant voting rights of any kind to women when, in 1838, those who were single and owned property began voting on matters involving schools.

  • CVFD should not have to pay $52k

    The latest kurfuffle in Campbellsburg centers around a seemingly simple, though rediculous concept — whether or not the city;s fire department should pay the city $52,000.

    Last week, the Campbellsburg City Attorney Graham Whatley said he had been asked by Mayor Jan Fletcher to draft a legal opinion regarding the city’s relationship with its fire department.

    As a result, Whatley cranked out a 20-page, rambling opinion — that could well have been condensed to less than 5 pages — that levels some hefty allegations.

  • What a great year for Hussey’s Relay team

    It has been another great year for the Hussey Relay team.  We raised $13,000.00 this year and hope to keep increasing every year.  We could not have done it without the help from this community.  What a great community it is!!  I would like to thank the following individuals and businesses.

  • Commentary: KSP looking at in depth crime

    For nearly a quarter-century, the Kentucky State Police has taken an annual in-depth look at crime in the Commonwealth, drawing from a database that brings together reports compiled by state and local law enforcement.

    Each crime worthy of the police’s attention serves as a dot that helps to paint a pretty good picture of the year faced by our 10,000 officers and their civilian support.  Historically, these reports show some definite trends, indicating where we are doing well and where we could do better.

  • Where does it end?

    Last week, Speaker Pelosi convened an “emergency” session of the House to vote on a bill that managed to combine three major reoccurring and disturbing themes from Washington Democrats’ agenda – spending money we do not have, authorizing another taxpayer-funded bailout and implementing job killing tax increases – into one $26 billion bill.  The Senate amendment to H.R. 1586, the Democrats’ State Bailout Bill, which I opposed, ultimately passed the House by a vote of 247-161.

  • What are you doing to beat the heat?

    Hooboy has it been hot lately. Sure, July and August are supposed to be scorchers, but we’re approaching 50 days so far this summer that have charted 90-degree days or higher.

    As I said to my husband last week, it’s wicked hot out there. Hades himself surely is looking for some cool air right now.

    No doubt ice cream sales are up right now, as are electric bills as we struggle to stay cool. Box fans, stand fans and oscillating fans probably are working overtime.

  • Thanks for help putting on Eminence Day

    It takes months to plan Eminence Day! A handful of dedicated people are working to provide a memorable experience for all of those that are looking for some fun. People like Sandi Hayden, Shelley Summerlin, Tomi Scriber, Brian Golden and Glenn Simpson, along with the festival board. As it gets closer for the City of Eminence, the employees kick into high gear, trying to meet all the requests needed along with their daily responsibilities. Let’s not forget how the businesses come together to make sure that the visitors have a good time.
