  • The real Resist movement

    The Resist Movement in America began late on a Tuesday night in November of 2016 when America elected Donald J. Trump as the 45th president. Shocked and awed that Trump had withstood a Hillary campaign that outspent Trump’s by $240 million, along with media-manipulated polls promising a Clinton victory and near constant negative coverage of Trump, Americans on the left of the political spectrum, and some conservatives who buried themselves in Never Trump trenches, immediately began an effort to push back and adopted an existence of denial.

  • Fiscal Court urged to focus

    Spencer County Fiscal Court got a dressing down Monday from a man who will soon take  his seat at the court’s table. Jim Travis, who won May’s primary for magistrate in Elk Creek, requested permission to address the court and offered up a civil, but biting critique of the disfunction of county government over the past four years.

  • The free exercise thereof

    Even in the midst of a great moral and spiritual decline, America has always tolerated cultural Christians. A cultural Christian is one who may go to church, will proclaim a belief in and a love for God when asked, and who may be so brazen as to wish you a Merry Christmas come December.

  • Decision on canceling Relay for Life is explained
  • Let us never forget

    I don’t remember anything about my third birthday. I know I was living in a little community not far from here in rural Oldham County called Ballardsville. Nothing memorable ever stood out to me about September 22, 1969 until last Thursday when I talked to Dale Yates.

  • Editorial

    There’s a lot of great lessons to be learned on the baseball diamond. Young people learn how to function as a team, individual responsibility, the value of hard work and how to focus when they’re out in the field for several innings.
    When a kid steps up to the plate, he or she learns the importance of patience, observance and the value of repetition. They learn that sometimes their job isn’t to hit the ball and pad their own batting average, but to sacrifice that average in order to move the runner ahead of them around the bases.

  • Classless comedy sinks journalism even lower

    According to a number of polls and surveys, journalists are among the least trusted and respected professionals in America. Granted, we’re listed above used car salesmen, big business executives and politicians, but perhaps journalists spend so much time vilifying some of those latter groups just to make sure we don’t end up on the very bottom.
    Not all the disdain toward our profession is deserved, but unless and until we acknowledge that much of it is, we should not expect things to get better.
