Today's Opinions

  • Real change must be at state, federal levels

    Harold Bratton

    Joe Yates is my attorney and friend. Sometimes friends don’t agree on things. Joe and I are like oil and water when it comes to our political views.

    I have been reading Joe’s columns since they began appearing in the Henry County Local. During that time I have found myself disagreeing with him more than not. After last week’s column I decided to write a rebuttal.

  • Civility is important everywhere

     By Lance Minnis

    An incident occurred today that really got me thinking about how we behave.

    I know some will scoff and call me a fuddy duddy or worse, and some may get mad because they see themselves in what I am about to say. Heck, I see myself in it at times, which only makes the point stronger.

  • Another conflict, another career stage

    A little over 23 years ago, the seeds were planted.

    The United States was preparing for war in the Middle East; at the time, Operation Desert Shield was underway. A few months later, Operation Desert Storm launched. At the same time, a journalist was born.

  • Corporations are the real Welfare queens

    It took us almost 20 years to find the Unabomber. FBI agent Mark Felt denied for 30 years that he was ‘Deep Throat,’ the source for Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein’s undercover investigation of Nixon and company, until he ‘fessed up in 2005. But today I am proud to announce that, after more than 35 years, we have found Ronald Reagan’s elusive ‘welfare queen.’

  • Kentucky has lots to see and do this fall

    With Labor Day behind us and a “biting cold and snowy” winter to come – if the Farmers’ Almanac prediction proves correct – the clock is ticking for those of us who would like to see some of what Kentucky has to offer during the fall.

  • An all too familiar Psalm

    “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.” Thus begins one of the most familiar passages from the Bible. I’ve known this revered Psalm since I was a child. You may well have it committed to memory. Some of you who think you haven’t really have.

  • We’re not the world’s police department

    President Obama made a wise political move to include the vote of Congress on what action the United States will take against the Assad regime for allegedly using chemical weapons on women and children in Syria.

  • Come on out to a grand ol’ party

    Friday, Sept. 13, will be an historic day in Henry County. That evening, both of Kentucky’s United States Senators — Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul — along with 4th District United States Congressman Thomas Massie, Kentucky Commissioner of Agriculture James Comer, State Senators Ernie Harris and Paul Hornback, State Representative David Osborne and other area Republican leaders will all come out to Pendleton for a multi-county Grand Ol’ Party Rally.
