Today's Opinions

  • Hope I live long enough to be called feisty

    I recently had a delightful visit with Mrs. Aline Stivers, a resident of Twin Oaks Assisted Living. Aline welcomed me into her apartment, which was neat as a pin by the way, and we talked for about an hour on a subject Mrs. Stivers found a little uncomfortable – herself!

    Aline will turn 100 years old this Friday, and with 365,000 days under her belt, she has lived a lifetime and then some. So settling on which details of her life to share with me might have proved daunting. 

  • A return to scripture

    There was once a king named Josiah. Josiah ascended to the throne at an incredibly young age and was grandson to two of the most wicked kings to ever rule over God’s people. Nonetheless, the Lord had great plans for Josiah’s life. 

  • Seeking volunteers

  • 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.

  • National POW/MIA Recognition Day is Sept. 16

    The United States’ National POW/MIA Recognition Day is observed across the nation on the third Friday of September each year. Many Americans take the time to remember those who were prisoners of war (POW) and those who are missing in action (MIA), as well as their families. Let us pray that we never forget those who have never returned home to their families.
