  • FROM OUR READERS - Reader offers his health care solution

    The United States of America has the best health care for its citizens when you look at its quality of service, health care technology, and responsiveness, that can’t be matched by any other nation on earth.  It is so important that we maintain this quality of health care services, but can we afford its cost?  

  • TES students should be thrilled

    I was neither a great nor eager student. By mid-September, I was already looking forward to the end of the school year. But like almost every kid, I found the first day of school to be exciting.

    It was pretty much the only time I was organized, with my pencils and papers neatly tucked away in my box or folder, my shoes free from dirty scuffs and a clean slate to impress my new teachers.

    The fresh start had me excited about school and at least for a few days, enthusiastic and motivated to do my best.

  • Family physicians play role in opioid epidemic

    Across Kentucky, community leaders, health care professionals, public policy makers and law enforcement officials are stepping up to address the opioid epidemic. The Kentucky Academy of Family Physicians is one of the many groups working to stop opioid abuse before it starts and to help those who are already struggling with opioid use disorders.

  • Tax reform is ahead

    I hope that you and your family are doing well as we prepare to close out the month of July. I have been very busy since the legislature adjourned back on March 30. I have attended many meetings and events in House District 53 as well as our Joint Interim Committee Meetings in the General Assembly.

    The first permanent farm bill was passed in 1938 when farming was much different than it is today. But the purpose of the bill still basically remains the same; to establish and oversee programs that maintain an abundant food supply and help farm families be successful.

  • The Bible is welcomed texbook

    Imagine learning to read without first learning the alphabet. Imagine trying to compute mathematical problems without a basic understanding of numbers. Imagine attempting to build a skyscraper without digging a solid foundation.

    There are basic fundamentals required to fully understand any subject or task, and for that reason, legislation in Kentucky that will now pave the way for the Bible to be taught in school as history and literature, will make for a much more educated and informed citizenry.

  • Public forum on crime informative

    Last Tuesday’s forum, called in response to a rash of thefts in Elk Creek, had the potential to be ugly. Residents had been victimized and right or wrong, some were pointing fingers at local law enforcement for not patrolling their neighborhoods adequately.

  • Support the County Fair

    Few things are as small-town American as the County Fair. For generations, rural communities gathered in one place for a week or more to celebrate, compete, fellowship and get acquainted or reacquainted with others in their county. More often than not, it was the largest gathering of folks in one place during the entire year and it was a highlight of everyone’s summer.
