Today's Opinions

  • National Day of the Deployed

    We have many national holidays and days of observance during which we honor and celebrate significant historical events, figures and members of our society. Veterans Day, Memorial Day and POW/MIA Day are set aside to honor the service and sacrifice of our military.

  • Head Start programs vital for Kentucky

    Every child that starts school unready is at risk for a lifetime of costly challenges, costs shared by all Kentuckians.  Head Start, as the nation’s largest preschool program, has a vital role in reducing these risks for Kentucky’s most vulnerable children and families.

  • Welcome interruptions for editor and county

    In life, people fall into certain rhythms and patterns that, repeated enough, will eventually become routine.

    Possibly the most generic one is getting out of bed, preparing for the day, commuting to work, maybe spending as much as 7.5 hours being productive and taking a half hour for lunch, heading home after, having some dinner, visiting with loved ones and bed.

  • Volunteer to make festival bigger or better

    Who “Lights-Up” New Castle?  Disappointed because there is no Light-Up scheduled? Have you considered why?  

    Charlie Sevier and a small crew worked on the City of New Castle’s Spring, Fall and Christmas celebrations for several years. He chose to resign from his leadership role in festival organizing. 

  • Finding ways to protect those who serve

    When it comes to keeping us safe, it can be easy to take for granted those who protect us – until tragedy re-reminds us that their job can carry a steep price.

  • Local charity commits to changing lives

    This past Saturday morning was gloomy at best. It truly would have been a perfect day to sleep in, but I reluctantly rolled out of bed earlier than I wanted, needing to get ready to head out and take some photos for the paper.

  • Business should offer more discounts

    With all the money that [a fast food restaurant] is making off of the citizens of Henry County, I asked do they have senior citizens discount meals and I was told they only discount coffee and some drinks.

    Dairy Queen does have senior discount meals, and myself being a senior citizen can’t understand why [a fast food restaurant], who is again making a killing, does not have them.
