  • GUEST COLUMNIST: Make some financial resolutions this year

    At the beginning of each new year, many people make a list of resolutions to keep in the coming months, such as losing weight or learning a new skill. As you make your list, don’t forget to consider wise financial goals for the year ahead. The Kentucky Society of CPAs suggests you adopt these smart resolutions.

  • LETTER: Toys for Tots says, "Thank you"

    Thanks to everyone that made donations to the Toys for Tots campaign this year. And a special thanks to The Tea Cup, the Family Diner, Dr. Randsdell and Elite Family Dentistry.

    We gave the toys out Dec. 22. It meant a lot to see the parents happy that they could provide their children with something for Christmas.

    Next year we plan to work more closely with Spencer County Family Resource. Anyone that wants to be involved, feel free to call me at home.

  • MATTER OF OPINION: Finding the American spirit

    Just curious, but how many of you really feel like celebrating the New Year?

    I would imagine that revelers of New Year’s Eve 2009 fall into one of two categories: (1) people that would toast the grand opening of a new dry cleaner, or (2) people that wish to bid 2009 a final good riddance.

  • GUEST COLUMNIST: Count your blessings

    As we celebrate this Christmas and the holiday season with family and friends, I hope we remember to give, to share, to count our blessings, and appreciate the true meaning of Christmas.  This is the season to reflect on what we have achieved this past year with a hope and promise of a new year about to dawn.

  • A year-end message from Kentucky's governor

    I ran for governor to better position Kentucky to compete in the future.

     And despite inheriting a budget mess and dealing with an historic national recession that is damaging our economy while limiting state government’s resources, my goals for Kentucky haven’t changed.

     When we emerge from this recession, Kentucky must emerge not shell-shocked and shattered but stronger than before.

  • LETTER: Looking for answers

    I just have a few questions:

     Isn’t bonding authority something like a limit on a credit card?  Is  maxing  out at a higher level always a good thing?

    Aren’t amenities like nice eateries and more local jobs what the voters wanted when they voted “wet”?  So why does a city official just cite “more tax revenue”?  Instead of worrying so much about people consuming a drink with dinner, shouldn’t we be more worried about politicians who are intoxicated with tax increases?

  • LETTER: Keep watch on where tax money is spent

    Quick to judge, you exclaim. Slanderous – libel another proclaims. The deceived spew ignorance from their lips, while embracing and defending the liars we call our local leaders.

  • LETTER: Jenkins had the opportunity

    While watching National Geographic “Wild Kingdom,” recently it sparked my thoughts to Spencer County government.  The made-for-television special was about lions being the kings of the jungle and naturally my ideas jumped to our own jungle cat, “King KACo.”  Now deep in indulgence I referred my energy to our state’s auditors final investigation of KACo and our judge.  After reading it again, I still find it hard to believe elected officials would do what they have accomplished.
