Today's Opinions

  • Road crews did a great job

    I would be remiss if I did not publicly thank the Henry County Road Department, the State Highway Garage and the New Castle Public Works Department for the outstanding job they did keeping our roads clear during the winter weather we have experienced the past three weeks.

    They have worked long hours and probably have received very little thanks for the job they have done.  

    After the last snow we received last week I expected to wake up Thursday morning and not be able to go anywhere. 

  • Proposed Innovation Act threatens American inventors

    By Thomas Massie, U.S. Representative

    At the recent Northern Kentucky Regional First LEGO League Robotics tournament, I marveled at the imagination and creativity displayed by so many young people.  

    In these students, I see the spirit of ingenuity and a culture of invention that have been critical to our nation’s economic success for over two centuries. 

  • Winter makes me SAD, but spring warms my soul

    I always know when spring is close at hand when I run out of vitamin D.

    For the past few years, I have purchased a 90-day supply of vitamin D in late December or early January to ward off symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).

  • A lesson learned from Miss Daisy and Hoke

    Donna and I recently watched Driving Miss Daisy, a 1989 movie starring Jessica Tandy (Miss Daisy) and Morgan Freeman (Hoke).  I was amazed at how much of the story I had forgotten, or didn’t get, from 25 years ago.  

    What I remembered was a story about a cantankerous old woman and a tenacious old African-American man who managed to become friends in spite of their differences.  There was more to the story.

  • Senate sends severals bills to House

    Submitted by Sen. Paul Hornback

    As we approach the final days of the 2015 Legislative Session, we have been working diligently to complete our consideration of Senate bills while also vetting legislation that has been passed by the House. We will begin considering several additional House bills next week.

  • Harvest Showcase committee asks for more community support

    Henry County has a proud farming heritage. Never have I seen it more appropriately on display than at the annual Henry County Harvest Showcase.

  • This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine

    The potential of solar power has not yet seen the light of day in Kentucky, but that could change with a little prodding of the General Assembly, according to the Community Farm Alliance.

  • Well deserved

    I personally want to thank Debbie Hartford for everything she has done for my son down through the years. If I could have been at the assembly I would have thanked her in person. Our kids are in such good hands at our school with so many dedicated faculty. That’s why our school doesn’t take a backseat to anyone. Go Warriors!
