Today's Opinions

  • School Board members recognized


  • Stewardship of land and animals taken seriously


    Sometimes I say it just to see how people will react.

    “I raise hogs,” I say.

  • Post-Christmas question: Is this all there is?


    As I sit to write this, the sun, which has been absent too many days, is shining brightly and streaming in through my window.  Just outside the window a redbird perches on a fence, taking in the brilliance of the sun and reflecting it through his red feathers.  

  • In honor of True


    Upon learning that the Honorable Bobby K. True of Bedford intends to retire from the practice of law, I wanted to express my thoughts about a man who has had an extraordinary career.  

  • Many thanks


    Christmas 2014 has come and gone, leaving us with memories of the season and the events of the past year. And for the 56th year the Bethlehem Living Nativity was presented as a reminder of the real meaning of Christmas. 

  • Feeding feathered friends without much flap


    Despite the gray veil of winter having descended on my new Kentucky home, a congregation of robins alit on every tree branch and went on thoroughly patrolling my neighborhood.

  • Postmark change not welcome

    Anyone who has sent or received a Christmas/holiday card that was routed through the Bethlehem Post Office this year most likely noticed something different compared to previous years.
    Since 1947 the iconic image of the three Wiseman following the Christmas star has adorned any card that came through the Bethlehem Post Office. Local folks and even those from around the world send their cards just to have this special stamp appear on their cards. 
    This year however, anyone wanting this historic stamp will be sorely disappointed.

  • Thanks for donations

    I wanted to thank all the Henry Countians who donated Christmas Cards (old and new) to Henry County’s Disabled American Veterans Auxiliary. With your help we reached our goal of 1,000 cards. The cards were distributed to the Veterans’ Hospitals in Louisville and Lexington, as well as the Providence and Twin Oaks homes in Henry County.
    Next year with your help, we hope to include residents at additional veterans’ facilities. Now is the time to start saving cards for next year’s project.
