Today's Opinions

  • Opinions are like noses, we all have one

    Speaking in absolutes will never benefit anyone.

    Classifying an entire segment of the population based on the thoughts, beliefs, words or actions of a few in that group devalues inherent individual belief systems. We are all individuals to be held accountable for our own actions, but in the end, we are far more alike than we are different.

  • Thanking Kentucky's veterans

    For nearly a century, our nation has paused on Nov. 11th to pay tribute to our veterans.  From the era of George Washington to now, this select group of men and women has unfailingly protected us here at home while sacrificing so much to promote and preserve freedom abroad.

  • A dangerous duck

  • Recapping 14 years of roadside cleanups

    By John Logan Brent, Henry County Judge-Executive

    On Saturday, Nov. 5, more than 40 non-profit and school groups came together in a coordinated effort to pick up our county’s roadways. 

    The result was 210 miles of roadway cleaned and 1,215 bags of trash picked-up. 

  • Letters to the Editor, November 2, 2016

    Vote for Shroyer

    This will be an unusual request from a running candidate. Tom Shroyer has continuously shown strength in his ability and commitment to give back to this community.  Tom has an inner drive to ensure that he completes any endeavor for which he involves himself. He is most certainly one to cross his “T’s” and dot his “I’s” before retiring any project. This man embraces his weaknesses and makes them his strength.

  • Election from a Biblical view

    It’s time to look at this election from a biblical view, not from a party view or your own point of view.

    This view is from the only true and living God, the god of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, who is the Lord Jesus Christ.

    If you are a truly committed Christian, listen to this warning. If we choose the wrong candidate, this country will fall. If you are not a Christian, read this letter and take it seriously.

  • Thank you for the honor, it's what we do every day

    On Thanksgiving Day, families across the country will come together around dining room tables. Many will share a bountiful feast and give thanks for many blessings. What better time than the month of November to also give thanks for our customers? 

  • Kentucky's Forests

    Over the last 50 years, usually around the time fall colors are in full bloom, state and federal officials dedicate a week to highlight all of the products our forests provide.

    Kentucky, of course, has been blessed more than most states.  Trees cover nearly half of our 25 million acres, and we are among the nation’s leaders – and first in the South – when it comes to hardwood production.
