Today's Opinions

  • Turn-about could be good play

    If you believe the media reports, North Carolina is reeling economically because of lost revenue and a tarnished image resulting from their bathroom laws. After lawmakers passed legislation that would have required people to use the bathroom that coincides with their biological gender (I doubt our Founding Fathers ever thought the Republic would have ever devolved to this point), the rash of protests and boycotts began.

  • Charter schools: an opportunity for all

    Kentucky felt an earthquake on November 8, 2016 that drastically changed the makeup of Frankfort and provided the Bluegrass state with a viable path to finally adopt needed reforms. With an eager Governor and a General Assembly intent on improving Kentucky’s business climate and education system, Kentuckians from all parts of the state should be excited about one thing: opportunity.

  • Great once again

    This week our nation experienced a wonderful American political tradition, as we witnessed the peaceful transfer of executive power. The new President  assumed office riding a wave of voter enthusiasm not seen since Reagan. For an accurate barometer of that enthusiasm, one should look beyond even the popular vote totals and the Electoral College.

  • Change can be educational

    An impressive crowd showed up at a public forum for the Spencer County School Board’s redistricting effort, which will assign students to the new Taylorsville Elementary School prior to it opening next August.

    District personnel explained how they approached the process of dividing the county into two, and deciding which students would go to the new school, and which ones would stay at Spencer County Elementary School.

  • From our readers - Appreciate school board members

    Vast changes are on the horizon in public education at the national level regarding the federal Every Student Succeeds Act, and at the state level considering the political landscape, the emphasis on charter schools, assessment, pensions, and additional components of Senate Bill 1.

  • From our readers - Trump not fit for presidency

    The last election was the most ridiculous election I’ve ever participated in.  The people elected the most unqualified and disgusting person in the history of the country for president.  He trash talked minorities, said because he is a celebrity it is alright for him to fondle women, mocked the disabled, etc., etc.

  • From our readers - Court handled legal fee reimbursement issue improperly

    I attended the Fiscal Court meeting on January 17, and was disappointed with the court’s decision to pay for Judge Riley’s legal fees accrued by the attorney he hired.  I listened to the reasoning presented by the judge and members of the court, but disagree with the decision to pay for outside council.  I believe our county attorney is capable of handling this case on his own.

  • From our readers - Training still encouraged if Kentucky loosens firearms laws

    Over the next few weeks, many discussions will be had with firearms instructors and citizens across Kentucky regarding constitutional carry.  As you may know Kentucky legislatures have SB7 almost ready to be brought to a  vote. This bill does not change current law of where you can carry only how  you can carry.

    Currently in the State of KY, it is legal to open carry without permit at  the age of 18. Many citizens do at times.  The new law, if passed, would  allow a person to conceal the firearm from view.
