Today's Opinions

  • Talking turkey in Kentucky

    This week, our families and friends will sit down at the dinner table to celebrate Thanksgiving, the oldest of the American-based holidays.

    Nearly 400 years have passed since the most famous of these harvest feasts was held by the Pilgrims and Native Americans.  It didn’t become the holiday we recognize today, though, until President Washington and then President Lincoln helped solidify its place on the calendar, which Congress finalized in the 1940s by declaring it to always be on the fourth Thursday of November.

  • Welcoming a new member of the family

    This year in time for the holidays, Beth and I decided to give ourselves a present. We adopted. 

    Perhaps it’s not the greatest outcome of all time for our new little one — he’s consigned to a small box for several hours most days; he eats like a pig, has already doubled in size and chews like a fiend; and strangers may well point and laugh at his antics.

  • A great day for Kentucky and America

    By Governor Matt Bevin

    History was made last Tuesday in both the Commonwealth and the nation. A political outsider won the presidency and did so while ignoring conventional political wisdom regarding campaign tactics. More importantly for the Commonwealth, a seismic political shockwave was felt across our state. 

  • 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.
