Today's Opinions

  • Boot brigade: firefighters outdo themselves

    Ask any charitable organization and they’ll tell you the most precious commodity to come by these days is time. Folks are much more likely to write a check or put together a bag of clothes to donate than allot any of their time to a particular cause.

    But the men and women of our county’s volunteer fire departments are different.

  • Louisville making friends with pro sports?

    I hope that our sports editor, Greg Woods, will forgive me. I’m about to step into his turf.

  • It’s time for cooler heads to prevail

    It’s my opinion that the world is rarely black and white. Usually issues, especially ones that are social in nature, fall somewhere in the gray middle. And that’s a scary place. Most of us don’t like to operate in shades of gray because black and white is so much easier.

  • No happy endings with heroin

    So here’s something I’ll never understand on any level — why would anybody want to surrender themselves to the lure of a dangerous drug like heroin?

    I felt astounded by the news that Northern Kentucky — a place I’m familiar with due to having family and friends across the Ohio in Cincinnati and having lived there myself — leads the nation in heroin abuse.

    It’s a safe bet that I’m as sheltered a person as you’ll ever meet.

  • No more ‘democratic dominance’ for Henry County

    Last month the Secretary of State’s office announced that the Republican Party has grown by 4 percent in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Still the minority party in the state, the GOP is growing in voter registrations, and on a steady climb upward.

    This past Saturday evening at the 2014 Lincoln-Reagan Dinner, I was pleased to announce that Henry County is no exception to the increase.  

    In fact, in the past four years, Republican Party voter registration has risen over 10 percent.  

  • Good to graduate, good to go?

    Graduating is weird. Seriously, it’s one of the most bizarre ceremonies we, as human beings take part in. We wear some ugly robes and hats, trudge across a stage, take a piece of rolled-up paper from some other robe-wearing goons and-voila!-you’re an adult.

  • We must invest in our community

    GOP Candidate, County Judge Executive

    Scenic roads, beautiful landscapes, grazing cattle, friendly and hard-working people are just some of the reasons why I like living in Henry County.  Often we take for granted the many assets that this county has to offer, but if we want to bring more business into our county, we need to promote our county. All of us should have community investment in the future of our county’s growth.

  • Do you need something to do?

    “Do you need something to do?” ranks among the top questions that I hate to hear.

    Having that query posed to me probably means my features have twisted themselves into an expression of bafflement or irritation.

    As someone who likes to stay occupied and keep working towards goals, I want to avoid a lot of downtime.

    Fortunately for me, then, the business of setting up my new home means there’s been no shortage.
