Today's Opinions

  • Just Ask

    In reference to your article, “Red Hill loses $38,000” in the Sept. 10 issue:

    How much did the cemetery fund pay the treasurer/bookkeeper before the City took over and what was paid to the treasurer/bookkeeper after?

    ~•~

    Hodgenville City Council disbanded the Red Hill Cemetery Commission in March 2008, and assumed the duties of the Commission. Former secretary James LaRue Jr., who passed away in August, was earning $200 per month at the time the original group disbanded.

  • Letters to the editor

    Community, committee support for orchestra appreciated

    The word thanks is too small and insufficient to adequately express my gratitude to this community for their support of the Louisville Civic Orchestra Concert. This project started as a germ of an idea eight months ago between two friends wanting to share their love of music.

  • NFL lesson: Be careful who you idolize

    Professional football is my favorite sport. I play fantasy football religiously with friends in California and keep up with league news in an up-to-the-minute fashion. My Sundays (and Thursday and Monday nights) are consumed by football. Often, I watch two games at once, one on my TV and one on my laptop.

    I say all that to impress upon you how much I care about the NFL. During the six months that the NFL is playing, I am always up to date with it. So the recent debacle about domestic violence in the league is something I’ve been very invested in.

  • 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.
