Today's Opinions

  • Park ceremony was nice event

    The dedication perseverance and volunteer efforts were apparent at the park dedication and ribbon cutting Thursday, Sept. 9.

  • Are you ready for some politickin?

    It’s almost that time. Yard signs are populating yards like bunny rabbits.

    That can only mean one thing — it’s election time. The big day is less than 60 days away. Are you ready?

    At that time, we’ll cast our votes for nearly all of our county offices as well as for U.S. Senator.

    I consider it an honor, privilege and a duty to go to the polls.

  • Column - Geoff Davis

    Last week, I had the honor and privilege of participating in the dedication ceremony for the Kentucky Veterans Cemetery North East in Greenup County, the Commonwealth’s fourth State veterans cemetery.  The new cemetery, which will serve veterans and their families in northeastern Kentucky, demonstrates the Commonwealth’s profound appreciation for the sacrifices made by brave men and women to protect our freedom.

  • KSP invites residents to Citizens’ Police Academy

    Society has always been interested in police work and finds the issue of crime a fascinating topic. Television programming has included shows about crime and police work from every angle and context throughout its history. The Kentucky State Police have developed a new program which taps into that same fascination and curiosity that people have with crime and police work. This new initiative, dubbed the Citizens’ Police Academy, will provide an opportunity for community members to feed their interest with reality.

  • Column: Kentuckians frustrated with health care law

    Throughout August, I have had the opportunity to travel throughout Kentucky’s Fourth Congressional District to talk with neighbors, families and small businesses about the direction our country is headed.  As we talk about the bills that have been passed by President Obama and Speaker Pelosi, I hear a great deal of frustration in particular about the new health care law.

  • Immature Political Tactics

    When I first told Ricky Doyle that I would consider working for him if he won the Judge Executive’s race, there were two things that I needed: a good clean race with no mud-slinging and to be able to have fun while we campaigned.

  • Congratulations to our own Ironman!

    Here at the Local, we already knew we were blessed with a unique and wonderful sports editor.

    Having worked with a variety of sports editors and writers over the years, I can honestly say Tommie is one in a million — not only does he cover every sport with unbridled enthusiasm, he’s tried just about every sport he covers.

    I think we all gained a new level of respect for him this weekend after he added a new sport to his list, and with it, a new title: Ironman.
