Today's Opinions

  • A bridge to the future

    Sometime in the very near future, the Blue Bridge that has carried motorists across the Salt River in Taylorsville for nearly eight decades will become just another memory.

    Transportation officials announced recently that traffic could be crossing the new bridge, built adjacent to the Blue Bridge, in just a few days. Then crews will turn their attention to demolishing the old span.

  • The frustrations of T-ball

    I love baseball. The fundamentals of the game are simple. It’s about catching, throwing, hitting and running. In fact, if you pick up a baseball, it’s like your brain automatically knows that object is for throwing. Give a baseball to a one-year-old, and he or she will taste it of course, but then they will throw it.

    The game is so easy, that those running our youth baseball leagues in America decided to introduce it to children at a very young age. Thus, in the 1950s, T-ball was born.

  • Expose the pensions of politicians

    Kentucky Roll Call publisher and American hero Lowell Reese, who was exposed to Agent Orange decades ago while fighting communism as a battalion commander in the jungles of southeast Asia, made the ultimate sacrifice for his country when he boarded his final flight from earth last week.

    Reese took the oath to defend this country and its Constitution “against all enemies, foreign and domestic” seriously.

  • The great bathroom debate

    Rip Van Winkle, the character from an early 19th century story, fell asleep for 20 years and woke to a world far different than the one he left when he fell into a deep slumber.

    He drifted off to dreamland before the American Revolution, and wiped the sleep from his eyes after the new nation had been formed. Needless to say, the sweeping changes that had taken place during his sleep caught him unprepared.

  • Budget tackled state’s priorities

    April 15th was the 60th and final legislative day of the 2016 General Assembly, and we were fortunate to take care of some much-needed business in Frankfort.

  • Kentucky must stand united

    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.

  • Budget was a bipartisan effort
  • From our readers - Riley did nothing underhanded with vote

    It’s taken me almost a week, but I believe that I can respond to Mr. Higgins’ letter last week now without having a mini-stroke!

    Without going line by line with rebuttal, I am just wondering about how Judge Riley “pulled a trick out of his bag?” Another regularly scheduled Fiscal Court meeting where the Sheriff’s budget was discussed again? That’s a trick out of the bag? Then, Judge Riley kept “delaying the decision?” You even say yourself he kept getting deadlocked votes.
