Today's Opinions

  • Do what’s right

    Never be afraid to get involved and do what’s right.

  • Humans and cat litter are ties that bind dogs and cats

    Cats and dogs, those familiar creatures near and dear to us, wholly different and cursed by nature to be sworn enemies of each other. We folk who share our lives with these two critters know that they can live side by side and can even pull together toward the same goal.

    They’re able to do this by having two common ties. One is we human beings. No matter how we think of ourselves in our relationship with cats and dogs, whether it is owner, roommate, buddy or parent, we are one common thread shared in their lives.

  • Thanks for Australia trip

    I just wanted to thank all the businesses in Bardstown, Elizabethtown and Hardin County, all my family, friends and neighbors for helping support me on my trip to Australia for the track and field competition. I had a blast and it wouldn’t have happened without them.

  • Some time off with grandkids

    Discussing a crowded Saturday schedule of shopping, playgrounds and pool time, my 4-year-old grandson asked, “Are you trying to wear me out?”

    After a week-long visit, Grant was on to me. At age 4, a boundless supply of energy exists and he knows it.

    “Cause I don’t wear out,” he continued. “I just be awake and be awake.”

    Just before midnight that evening when a weary grandfather tried to corral him into bed, the boy started sprinting back and forth across the room.

  • All-Star thanks

    The LaRue County 9-Year-Old All-Star team would like to thank the many fans who supported them during the Cal Ripken 10th District Tournament held at LaRue County Parks and Recreation and the Cal Ripken West Kentucky State Tournament held in Elizabethtown.

    Community support for these players was tremendous. Fans filled the stands at every game and the many phone calls asking how the team was doing was incredible.

  • Let our voices be heard

    It seems you can’t pick up the newspaper or turn on the television these days without reading or hearing about climate change legislation. The concern is focused on the American Clean Energy and Security Act that proposes a government plan called “cap-and-trade.” Congress says they want to pass legislation that will make a change in the energy industry by reducing carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions from our atmosphere. I have no objections with passing clean-air legislation that is affordable to all Americans.
