Today's Opinions

  • It's a Cleveland thing

    Right now, as I begin writing this, the game is tied. What’s that? You don’t know what game I’m talking about? Oh, well, it’s only the biggest game in the NBA. That’s right, I’m watching the NBA Championship game at the edge of my seat with a sick feeling in my stomach because the Cleveland Cavs are playing and the odds are completely against them.

  • How to improve cell phone reception

    My office is in the basement level of my home. And even though it is a sunlight basement, one wall is exposed with walkout and windows, cell phone reception from local towers is weak. Even when upstairs, I had difficulty receiving a cell phone signal because I am almost equal distance between two cell towers. I imagine many of you have the same problem. But, take heart, there may, and I say “may,” be a solution for you.

  • New dangerous drug emerging in state

    By Terry Mills

    It has often been said that the war against illegal drugs is an ever-changing battlefield. When we seem to be making headway on one front, another tragically opens up.

    Over the past dozen years, those “fronts” in Kentucky have ranged from meth and synthetic drugs to prescription pain medicine and heroin.

    According to the annual report the state’s Office of Drug Control Policy released last week, a new name has been added to that list: fentanyl.

  • Retirement Savings Means It’s Time to Sweat the Small Stuff

    Baby Boomers, Generation X and Millennials. The lack of retirement savings in our country is an epidemic that affects all three generations.

    According to the 2016 Retirement Confidence Survey from the Employee Benefit Research Institute (EBRI), only two-thirds of workers (or their spouses) are currently saving for retirement, with 26 percent reporting they have less than $1,000 saved. It’s time to sweat the small stuff.

  • It's what they do

    I’ve been sick, so sick in fact that, finally, after I was lovingly sent home by Allison last Monday and told to go to the doctor and get checked out, I went to the doctor for the second time in less than a week. First time, was bronchitis, I didn’t rest and take care of myself. Long story short: it made me worse, I had mononucleosis and the antibiotics I was on caused me to break out in a rash all over. I was off for all of last week.

  • The importance of site selection

    Site Selection is not a magazine most of us would keep on our coffee table, but for those in government and business who track economic development, this publication is one not to be missed.

    Fortunately, it has had a lot of good things to say about Kentucky in recent years, and over the past two, it has awarded us its annual Governor’s Cup for having more major job announcements than any other state on a per capita basis.

  • Why your kid does not friend you

    I overheard an adult mom recently commenting to a friend that their college-aged daughter refused to Friend her on Facebook. The other person commented enthusiastically that her daughter had friended her, and she followed her closely! I “almost” did not have the heart to tell them they were both out-of-touch with reality.

  • The interim is still busy

    The General Assembly may be at its busiest during the first several months of the year, when the House and Senate are focused on passing new laws, but the summer and fall months are important as well to the legislative process.
