  • 'Where to draw the line' is a fair question for newspapers

    Someone asked me recently why we publish details and photos from fatal crashes, fires and other tragedies.

    That’s certainly a fair question. It’s also one that I’m sure has been debated in newsrooms around the world. For that reason, I believe such a question deserves what I hope is a thoughtful and considerate answer.

  • 2010 is a new beginning for each of us

    Aren’t you happy to be living and see the beginning of a new year? What expectations we have of ourselves ...

  • Laptops for LaRue: A great proposal for student learning

    When I first heard about the proposed laptop initiative for LaRue County students, I had a knee-jerk reaction. What? Purchase computers for students? Don’t they already have them at school?

    I was raised by parents who grew up during the Great Depression. They didn’t expect to receive extras.

  • Thank you from Christmas Blessings

    Christmas Blessings committee would like to say thank you to all those who helped make Christmas special for 217 families (546 children) in LaRue county this Christmas.

  • Stroke symptoms should be treated quickly

    I was at my grandmother’s recently for my weekly visit when something strange happened. We were talking about how silly one of my dogs was acting, and I noticed Mamaw was having trouble saying the dog’s name. It’s Bree — not very difficult — so I knew something was wrong. I looked up at Mamaw and saw that the right side of her face was drooping. Her mouth formed a half frown and didn’t move on that side when she tried to speak.
