  • FROM OUR READERS - Petty Politics

    After reading John Riley’s letter to the editor of November 1, 2017, and his reference to petty politics, I have to ask of his petty, dirty and childish politics of solely stopping the paving of the road I live on, at my property line.

    To add insult to injury, on the first county mowing, the mower stopped at my property line also. This mowing was followed in the fall after Johnson grass was taller than six feet.

  • FROM OUR READERS - Frankfort Democrats created pension crisis

    State Representative Rocky Adkins, Democrat House Minority Leader, wrote a guest newspaper column “on behalf of the other 35 members of the Kentucky House Democratic Caucus” criticizing the proposed pension fix currently being debated in the legislature.

  • Accused deserve due process

    In the wake of allegations against Alabama Senate Candidate Roy Moore, I offer the following reminder that we in America have a moral and legal obligation of due process.

    Sexual abuse and assault are serious offenses and over the past several weeks, we’ve been bombarded with allegations, admissions and apologies from Hollywood over the abuse of women.

  • Frankfort must stay the course despite scandal

    An initial statement by House Majority Leader Jonathan Shell last Friday that then-Speaker Jeff Hoover “has the full support” of the Republican caucus following claims of a sexual harassment settlement were as wrong as a preliminary police report that Sen. Rand Paul suffered only “minor injuries” when physically assaulted by a neighbor at his home in a gated community in Bowling Green.

    It didn’t take long for the truth about the attack on Paul to come out; he suffered bruised lungs and several broken ribs – hardly “minor.”

    The pension crisis continues to dominate headlines across Kentucky as state lawmakers wrestle with ways to preserve the retirement systems for teachers and other state workers without bankrupting the Commonwealth’s coffers.

    Years of mismanagement and inadequate funding have resulted in the real possibility that the system will run out of money to pay the promised pensions of those about to retire and those already retired, not to mention those who are just starting or who are in the middle of their careers.

  • Tipton not supporting pension proposal

    This week all across our nation individuals and communities will honor our Veterans. Originally called Armistice Day, this recognition was enacted by President Woodrow Wilson to mark the end of World War 1 on November 11, 1918. Congress made this a federal holiday in 1938 and the name was changed to Veterans Day in 1954. The original resolution says, “the recurring anniversary of this date should be commemorated with thanksgiving and prayer and exercises designed to perpetuate peace through good will and mutual understanding.”
