Today's Opinions

  • The need for more understanding

    I was snowed in last weekend thanks to Winter Storm Jonas. Being forced to have to stay in without being able to go anywhere gave me a lot of time to think about things, which can be dangerous in a lot of ways.

    There were a lot of topics I thought about that could be possible columns for me to write, but there was one topic that kept nagging at me and I can’t keep my opinion about it to myself anymore. The majority of people are not understanding of others and they are quick to complain, criticize or “wrongfully” judge them.

  • LETTER: Children at play signs: are they legal?

    Dear Editor,

    Traffic signs are installed on our highways for many reasons. They may inform us of the need to stop, the speed limit, street name or which direction to go. Warning signs alert us to unexpected hazards on our roads. Signs help us obey the laws, find our destination and keep us from running off the road. They help us to stay safe whether we are a motorist, bicyclist or pedestrian.

  • Happy Father's Day

    Well it’s almost time to celebrate dad again with ties and cards that are funny or made from the hands of the littlest of these to show just how special Daddy really is.

    My Daddy, named John Samuel, was always called “Jack.” He used to say, “all great men named John are called Jack,” and he was one of the great ones.

  • The things we do for our children

    When my daughter Natalie was young, she wanted to get her ears pierced. And even though she wanted her ears pierced, she was afraid of needles. Her solution, one that was clever and smart, was for me to get my ears pierced to show her it did not hurt.

  • Things that make you wonder

        What if only one person from every county in Kentucky decided to go vote after all on election day? Would we be facing a recanvass this Thursday? The Republican Gubernatorial race was won unofficially by 83 votes, and there are 120 counties in Kentucky. I wonder....

  • Thirty lessons, thirty years

    I’m turning 30 next week! Yikes, right? Wrong. Thirty is young and I welcome it as well as every other year that I am blessed enough to celebrate on this annual occasion. I’ve learned a lot over these thirty years. I thought it would be fun to compile a list of thirty things I’ve learned in thirty years. These are just the lessons that stick out in my mind at this time; not everything I’ve learned, Lord knows there isn’t enough space here for all of that, I’ve done a lot of learning.
