Today's Opinions

  • Bridge dedication

    The Eminence Cemetery Board of Directors will recognize the continuing community service work of Steve Metcalfe’s students at a May 15, 2 p.m. gathering.

    The cemetery board will unveil a bronze plaque for the bridge built by Metcalfe’s science, technology, engineering and math-based class at that time. The public is invited to participate.

  • Vote for Bernie

    This year Bernie Sanders is giving us, the people, a once in a lifetime chance to right some very big wrongs and return our government to the people.  The truly important issues facing this country will not be solved, disputed or even debated while we have public officials taking money from lobbyist in the halls of our Capitol or while those same officials are being lavished with expensive dinners, gifts and offerings.  

  • Making efforts to attract rarely seen birds

    English sparrows are the rats of the avian world, at least in my opinion. English sparrows are the Euro-trash that, after being brought here by well-intentioned folks, collect around cities in the United States and bully the natives.

  • At session's end several new laws hit the books

    Legislative sessions tend to be remembered for just a handful of new laws, and this year’s, which ended April 15, is no different.

    The budget was understandably the most prominent, with its chief highlight being the significant amount of new money the General Assembly put toward the unfunded liabilities of our public retirement systems.

  • Not all medications can or should be stopped 'cold turkey'

    By Drane Stephens, Eminence Apothecary

    I often get question about the proper way to stop taking a medication. 

    How to stop a medicine isn’t always clear-cut and generally depends on dose, duration of therapy, reason for stopping, etc. 

    But using a “start slow to go low” approach can usually help limit discontinuation symptoms or other problems for patients. 

  • Legislature addresses potential crisis

    For more than a decade now, the most pressing long-term problem in Kentucky has been the growing liabilities of our public retirement systems for teachers and state employees.

    Both systems had far more than they needed a dozen or so years ago, but two recessions since then have swept most of those gains away.

  • 'United we stand, divided we fall'

    By Ky. Governor Matt Bevin

    A new day is dawning in Kentucky. 

    For the first time in many years, the winds of financial responsibility have begun to blow briskly through the marble halls of Frankfort. These welcome breezes are ushering in the promise of a fresh start for the Commonwealth.
