Today's Opinions

  • LETTER: Should we trust?

    Are we to trust a man with our future, sewers or otherwise, who can’t recall what he has done in the last six months and can look straight into a camera and say so. (Wasn’t there something about a Co-ed escort service as well?) Trust?

    I recall a lot of stories about those grant applications being written by a lot of people and I wonder how many were written by those taking credit.

    I bet the current economy has been on a lot of peoples minds when they think about looking at unemployment.

  • LETTER: A vote for change at cemetery

    Like many of you, I have family members in Valley Cemetery and over the past year I have watched a few board members of the corporation destroy the warmth and love some were trying to share.

    With little to no attempt to contact stockholders, they began on Fathers Day removing the flowers and items we left for our loved ones and throwing them in a pile like trash. Many items were broke or damaged beyond recognition.

    I watched as men and women tried to go through the items and locate the things they left for their loved ones.

  • Continuing the fight against fiscal irresponsiblity

    Guest columnist Congressman Brett Guthrie

    Kentuckians are ready for Congress to implement common-sense ideas that create jobs, make health care more affordable for everyone and keep our homeland safe.

    The American people deserve openness, transparency and accountability. Concerned citizens across the country continue to speak out against the majority’s plan to pass a government takeover of health care. Congressional leaders are meeting behind closed doors to draft their final plan for health care reform that will impact every American.

  • Stevens provides review of 2010 Legislative Session

    Guest columnist Rep. Kent Stevens

    Legislative sessions are much like snowflakes. They appear the same from a distance, but look closely and you’ll see each has a pattern all its own.

    Right now, the 2010 Regular Session that began in Frankfort Tuesday looks to the casual observer like most legislative sessions held in even-numbered years. It will last 60 legislative days. Its main purpose is to pass a state budget before a new two-year budget cycle begins in July. And legislative procedure will be the same, too.

  • LETTER: Citizens need to see "big picture"

    How many times have I had the opportunity to do something the correct way and I did just the opposite? I can answer that by saying about 10, 20, 100 or 2000. Although, I never really did think about counting them, did my actions affect anyone else? Definitely, yes they always did. Was I crucified by my friends, family or enemies? No, I was not.

  • LETTER: Composer humbled by attention to Christmas song

    I want to thank the Spencer Magnet for the beautifully written article on Matt and our family last week.  It was more than we could have hoped for. Everyone who saw the article was so very complimentary of it.

  • LETTER: Chamber thanks those who helped with Christmas on Main

    The Chamber of Commerce would like to express our sincere appreciation to everyone who helped make the Chamber’s Christmas on Main a successful event. Thanks to those that weathered the extreme cold including the families who come out year after year and the countless volunteers. We couldn’t do it without you!

    We appreciate the donations from local businesses and individuals sent in from our contribution requests. This fund helps Santa get a head start in his toy workshop for next year.

  • 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.
