Today's Opinions

  • LETTER: Concert was a tremendous gift to the community

    Beethoven and Bach in Hodgenville. Wow.

  • Expect opposition when you follow Christ

    When a person follows the truth of Christ, there will always be someone to oppose him.

    Why is this? Because the devil was kicked out of Heaven, he is still mad about it and trying to get even. If you follow Christ, some time or somewhere, you will face opposition.

  • Oct. 6 is deadline to register to vote

    The deadline to register to vote in the upcoming November 4 General Election is Monday, Oct. 6.

    County clerks’ offices throughout Kentucky will accept voter registration cards until the close of business on that date. Mail-in voter registration applications must be postmarked by Oct. 6.

  • Phone-otography is a natural way to document life

    As someone who uses a real camera on a near-daily basis, let me just say that I do not disapprove of people who use their phones to take pictures. In fact, I’m often impressed by their work when I see it on Instagram or Facebook.

    People have come up with some pretty clever ways of taking pictures with their phones. I’ve decided to start calling it ‘phone-otography’ in hopes that it catches on and I can finally be trendy.

  • A trip to forget: Broken rod led to broken spirits

    Fishing is relaxing.

    That’s what they tell you when you don’t fish. It isn’t until you get out on the water with someone that you realize just how distinctly not relaxing it really is.

    When my friend offered to take me fishing at his family’s farm over the weekend, I thought, “Oh, this’ll be fun.” I was right, but not for the reasons I’d expected.

  • Where have the workers gone?

    Swimming against a strong current is an apt comparison for the plight of most workers today.

    A recent study by the Kentucky Center for Economic Policy illustrates just how hard it has become not only for the unemployed, but even for those who get up every day and go to work.

    “The State of Working Kentucky 2014” reported that between 2001 and 2013, Kentucky workers’ median wages fell 8 percent after adjusting for inflation.

    And those are the workers who still have jobs.

  • Letter to the editor

    Wesley Meadows’ Brigade seeks bikes for Christmas

    Wesley Meadows United Methodist Churh is sponsoring the bike brigade which is part of the Santa Run held on Christmas Eve in LaRue County.

    The project officer for the bike brigade is Robbin Redmon.

    The Santa Run consists of the Rudolph Bus (a repurposed school bus), along with fire trucks, squad cars, a caravan of pickups and cattle trailers making five stops in the community giving food, toys and bicycles to underprivileged children.

  • Joel Ray Sprowls: One in a million

    Joel Ray Sprowls is celebrating 60 years of entertaining audiences with his Lincoln Jamboree. Six decades of success in any business is truly something to be proud of, but in entertainment it’s almost unheard of, with rare exceptions like the legendary George Burns, or Bob Hope.

    Joel Ray is LaRue county’s own legendary performer, and Master of Ceremonies.
