Today's Opinions

  • Local wireless provider puts customers first

    xThe first handheld mobile phone was demonstrated by John F. Mitchell and Martin Cooper of Motorola in 1973, using a handset weighing c. 4.4 lbs. (2 kg).

    In 1983, the first commercially available handheld mobile phone came to market, and yea, I had one of the first “bricks”, as they were called.

    Early cell phone plans started around $50 a month – equivalent to $120.81 in today’s dollars – and that didn’t even include minutes.

  • Why do you and I make New Year's resolutions?

    By Steven Curtsinger
    Student Columnist

     

    To lose weight? To eat healthy? To exercise more? To stop bad habits?

    I think the universal thought behind New Year’s Resolutions is change. As humans, we are constantly changing. So, to make a resolution is a way to embrace and pursue change and to better ourselves in one or more areas of our lives. I decided to poll my senior class at LaRue County High School, to see why we make resolutions, what their goals are for 2017 and how they want to see change in the New Year.

  • The coming together of prayers

    I had the privilege of writing about an amazing and heartfelt article in The LaRue County Herald News this week.

    The article was about three LaRue County people who have all worked and been connected with different outreach programs over the past several years. Now all three have came together to provide handicap equipment and be an inspiration for disabled people in Kenya. I encourage everyone to read the article and pray for them all.

  • Winterizing your grocery budget

    Many families notice that their grocery bills surge in the winter months. Out-of-season produce and poor road conditions all contribute to the rise in food costs. Here are tips to winterize your grocery budget in order to save:

    - Make a grocery list. Know exactly what you will be buying before you enter the grocery store so that you can avoid unplanned purchases.

    - Plan your meals around items that you already have in your pantry. Pantry staples such as rice, flour and dried beans are all relatively inexpensive and can be used in many different dishes.

  • A new Network concept, the Wifi Mesh

    There is a lot of recent interest in Google’s new Google Home and Google Wi-Fi, and updates to Google’s OnHub routers that will be able to work together and create a Mesh Network in your house or place of business. The idea of a mesh network is not new, but with Google’s introduction, they have legitimized the concept.

  • Feed the birds
  • What we're not talking about

    This editorial is based on the views of the LaRue County Herald News editorial board.

    The board consist of Allison Shepherd, Publisher; Doug Ponder, Editor; and Vanessa Hurst, Reporter.

    With the recent developments in a case that involved students of our local high school and said Principal at the time, Stephen Kyle Goodlett, we are stopping to take a deeper look at the underlying problem occurring right here in our own community.

  • What is a Digital Executor?

    What happens to your Digital property after your death? This subject recently jumped out at me because I lost two close friends over the past few months.

    Both deaths were rather sudden and the individuals Facebook account was the last thing on their love one’s minds. However, as I continued to view posts and memories from their Facebook profile, I began to wonder when, if ever, the account would be removed.
