Today's Opinions

  • The right to ask simple questions

    I’ve covered some weird meetings in the last eight years. As I’ve reported earlier this year, some of those have been down right wacky.

    But Monday night’s meeting of the Campbellsburg City Council was downright odd.

    Discussion about the city’s fire department, its reconstruction and its funding took up more than half of the 150 minute meeting.

  • Berry remarkable in many ways

    Buddy Berry is a remarkable young man on so many very important fronts of life.  He is an outstanding scholar, highly effective teacher, capable administrator, winning coach, tireless youth pastor, faithful husband and model father to name only a few of these vital areas. I have had the personal pleasure of following Buddy’s trajectory of excellence since he was a fearless teenager of sixteen. There is a rare quality that precious few seem to exhibit — the favor of God.

  • Out of my face, and shopping cart

    Stock up on your favorite junk food now, folks, because it looks like the federal government is going to be messing with our food supply a whole lot more if regulators at the FDA have their way.  Plans are underway to mandate restrictions on salt. The government – that fine institution that exists ostensibly to protect our rights and property in this land of the free – is planning soon to dictate how much salt will be legally permissible in prepared foods at grocery stores and restaurants.

  • Empower the people to create jobs

    April 15 marked Tax Day, a painful reminder of just how much money the government takes from our paychecks every year. As Kentuckians filed their taxes, sending their hard-earned dollars to the federal treasury, many question what Congress is doing with their money.

    Over the last two years, Congress has given Americans a series of bailouts, a failed stimulus package and a government takeover of healthcare, costing roughly $1 trillion each.

  • It’s election season, choose wisely

    It is election time again. The purpose for my letter is two fold.

  • Council member sounds off on mayor’s communication

    Last week’s paper reported the Campbellsburg City Council’s disappointment with Mayor Jan Fletcher.  Specifically, the mayor sought out and hired a new attorney to represent the city; fired its current city attorney, but didn’t let the council know he had done so.  The Local accurately reported the council’s concerns, except for one main aspect.  The mayor was asked by City Councilman Rex Morgan if he had considered any Henry County-based attorneys for the position.  The mayor responded that he had tried to contact Attorney Bill Brammell, but an o

  • Thank you for support of Judy Lea

    The Judy Lea Memorial Henry County Children’s Fund would like to thank all who helped make this year’s fund raising dinner such a success. John Rothenburger, Sidney Rothenburger and the Henry County and Eminence Food Service for preparing and serving the food. Eminence Baptist Church youth group for busing tables. The Campbellsburg Show Choir, Henry County Middle School Choir, Eastern Elementary Choir, New Castle third and fourth graders, Henry County Jazz Band, for the entertainment, Dave Gray for auctioneering, Ben Coomes, Donnie Tipton and Harold Bratton for hosting.

  • Documentary twists the truth

    Earlier this year, Mr. Michael Pollan was nominated for an Oscar on a documentary full of lies. Not every documentary film sticks with the full, straight to the point facts/truth. There isn’t a law that states that. For this movie, Food Inc., is filled with lies about America’s farmers and food suppliers. How can a topic that can be so strongly focused on, be blown so out of proportion based on these lies? What can we as farmers do with this situation?
