Today's Opinions

  • Not in session, but work being done

    The General Assembly may be at its busiest during the first several months of the year, when the House and Senate are focused on passing new laws, but the summer and fall months are important as well to the legislative process.

  • Come on in, the water's fine (maybe)

    We were at a friend’s house over the weekend for a cookout. It was a beautiful day, although cloudy, but humidity was low and sitting outside was rather comfortable with a strong breeze carrying across the back patio.

    Despite the mild weather, the 3-year-old daughter of other friends who also came to the cookout immediately wanted to get in the above-ground pool just as soon as they arrived. She was warned that it was still early in the season and that it wasn’t a very warm day so the water would be pretty cold.

  • In remembrance of a friend named 'Bo'

    My childhood friend, Vinis “Bo” Kelly, Jr., died May 6. We became friends when I was in the second grade and Bo was in the third.

    Bo initiated the friendship. I never knew why. I wish I had asked him.

    I do know what gave rise to our friendship. It was a schoolyard bully and his cronies.

    The bully and his cronies shall remain nameless. Perhaps over time, they grew up to be good men.

    They were not good boys. For today, I will refer to them as “B and Company.”

  • Fresh face joins Local for the summer

    As luck would have it, dog hugging, blanket fort-building and antique shopping are not majors offered at Campbellsville University, where I go to school. I’m proficient in all of these things; however, my natural love for writing and people led me to choose mass communications with an emphasis in journalism and an English minor.

  • To District 4 Voters:

    I want to take this opportunity to thank those of you who supported me in the recent primary election. It is both humbling and gratifying for me to know that people cast their votes on my behalf. Thank you for your words of encouragement and phone calls. Thank you to those allowing me to place my signs on your properties and a special thank you for those who made contributions to my campaign fund. You are all so very much appreciated.

  • Addressing obesity rates in Kentucky

    To get a better understanding of just how prevalent obesity has become in America, consider that no state had more than 20 percent of its adult population fall in that category in 1996.  Today, no state has less.

  • America meant to be Christian nation

    In December 1791, the Bill of Rights was ratified by the states. Sixty-three years later, the establishment of religion was explained in Congress. 

    The Supreme Court of 1962 got it wrong. 

    America as a nation was founded on Judeo-Christian principles and it will not survive if we derive from that foundation.

  • Thanks for support

    The Henry County FFA Chapter and Alumni Chapter would like to sincerely give a special thanks to our Henry County community. We have been blessed with a supportive crowd for Burger Bash this year.

    We’d like to thank all general volunteers, the cooks and persons/businesses who donated their time and items to allow Burger Bash to be a hit yet again. 

    The silent and live auction went great.
