  • Don't fish too deep on lakes

    By Lee McClellan
    Fishing instruction for decades preached anglers should fish deep, cool water during the hottest days of the summer.
    This makes sense, as fish are cold-blooded animals and their body temperature is the same temperature as the temperature of the water that surrounds them.
    However, fishing deep water in summer on a lake such as Taylorsville Lake may mean your offerings are in a “dead zone.” Warming air temperatures change the nature of the water in a lake. Anglers need to consider these changes while summer fishing.

  • Obamacare: The gift that keeps on giving

    Guest Editorial, The Bowling Green Daily News
    While the pretty wrapping paper and multicolored bow appears attractive on the outside, once the Obamacare package is opened, the soaring costs, broken promises and unintended consequences are exposed for all to see.
    In recent days, we have learned about the proposed merger of Kentucky-based Humana and Aetna. There are also reports that Anthem and Cigna Corp. have rekindled merger talks.

  • COLUMN: Entitlements run deeper than potholes

    Americans crave their independence, or at least we claim to. Earlier this month, we celebrated 239 years of independence with parades, concerts, fireworks and other celebrations. I sometimes wonder how much of it is just show.
    Few people, outside of those who espouse Socialism, will admit to wanting government to do all things for all people. However, increasingly we see a willingness to shirk our own responsibilities if we think the folks in Washington, Frankfort or down at City Hall will do for us, what we ought to be doing for ourselves.
