Today's Opinions

  • Improvements in education

    Not long after the start of each school year, Kentucky begins getting report cards on the overall progress our students are making.  These annual updates give the public the chance to learn if we are still heading in the right direction academically.

  • Club with rich history of service dissolves

    Our Campbellsburg Woman’s Club was founded in 1906 and federated by the Kentucky Women’s Club in 1908. The club was founded by Mrs. J.T Jefferies, and its first president was Mrs. Noble Humston. 

    The objective of this organization was friendship, culture, social services and the promotion of better conditions in the community.

    One of the club’s first projects was the establishment of a town library in 1908. Though it had a happy beginning, the project has come to a sad end.   

  • To clarify offerings

    The Kentucky Coalition for Healthy Communities does not offer educational classes, but the health department has that responsibility. KCHC is a group of community members and stakeholders from many entities coming together. I do not work for them, but I am a community organizer for North Central District Health Department and Institute for Sustainable Health and Optimal Aging.

  • Letters for Sept. 21, 2016

    All invited to pray for addiction recovery efforts
    In the face of tremendous pain and suffering caused by drug use, the pastors of Henry County have come together, forming an initiative to consider a response filled with both grace and truth.
    Our desire is to affirm all life as sacred, that no one is too far gone, that no soul is beyond saving. We know this because we are not perfect ourselves. Ministers stand in the need of the same grace.

  • Honoring first responders on anniversary of 9/11

    On some anniversaries we celebrate. On others we reflect.
    The 15th anniversary of the attack on America and New York’s World Trade Center is one of the times for reflection. There is truly nothing to celebrate in the extraordinary tragedy of 9/11.
    As much as I would like to forget some of them, the images from that day will never be out of my mind, nor will the victims and their families.
    But there is one memory I want to hold on to, one that I want to cherish as the deepest and most lasting of Sept. 11, 2001.
