Today's Opinions

  • Buttermilk Basics

    Buttermilk is a great way to add flavor and nutrition to many dishes. It has a longer storage time than fresh milk, and is therefore a great ingredient to have in your refrigerator.

    Buttermilk was originally the fluid left behind after churning butter from milk. Today, you can find reduced-fat varieties and locally produced buttermilk that is thick and rich in flavor. Buttermilk retains the nutrients from the milk used to produce it and is a good source of calcium and protein.

  • I probably shouldn't do it

    Saturday was absolutely beautiful. Had it not been for the thick layer of pollen on everything, it would have been pretty close to perfect. After a quick shopping trip, I stopped at the playground to let the boys run around.

  • The bigger picture

    Last week, it was an honor to be invited and to attend the Campbellsville University media appreciation luncheon.

    Print and broadcast media from around the state were in attendance for the event that took on a global traveling theme around the adventures of the guest speaker, Pulitzer Prize winning photographer Bill Luster. I sat in awe listening to him recant his journeys and seeing the images that could move mountains, and I found myself wondering just how I got here and what difference am I making in this world.

  • How to delete duplicate photos

    For Christmas, my son-in-law gave my wife a MacBook Air laptop. I know, what a guy! Anyway, I got to set it up for her, which meant bringing all her files from Windows to Mac.

    When I say all, she had less than 100 data files, and more that 30,000 photos. Yup, you read the number right. The age of the digital camera in our phones has done nothing to teach us how to manage the massive number of pictures we take.

  • Concern about the negative impact of alcohol

    Dear Editor,

    In regards to the alcohol petition circulating in LaRue County, we would like to take the opportunity to express our concerns about the negative impact it would have, should it be allowed by a vote. We are proud to live in a dry city/county and we hope and pray that it will remain that way.

  • A bitter taste

    Have you ever had a bitter taste in your mouth? Like when you are a kid and say a dirty word or sass your mom. The punishment was often getting soap in your mouth. That taste, you try everything you can think of to get it out of your mouth. It lingers on your tongue for a while; eventually it wears off but the memory of that awful taste remains.

    It’s too bad we don’t get a vile taste in our mouths when we spew poisonous babble, like gossip. It could save a lot of people from unnecessary hurt and heartache.

  • Fast is getting faster

    If you have not already, you will begin hearing your voice and data provider telling you that 5G is on the way. Oh my, 5G! Is that a good thing and what will it cost me?

  • Hours after trash pick up, more had been thrown down

    Dear Editor,

    Last Saturday, April 1, Becky’s Team participated in the Trash for Cash as a fundraiser for Relay for Life. We cleaned up 10 miles of road littered with everything imaginable, but the sad part of that is 75 to 80% of that trash is recyclable.

    There were lots of plastic bottles and aluminum cans along with paper and Styrofoam too. We also found old tires, a mattress and box springs, an old TV and even a couch and loveseat.
