Today's Opinions

  • Perfect People

    Perfect people

    I’m amazed at how many perfect people live in Hodgenville and the county.

    They have set themselves up as God, judge, jury and hangman for Terry Cruse and MaDonna Hornback. Some people that own a business or people who work there, have even mouthed off that Terry Cruse and his family should be run out of town. Well we are not going anywhere. How would you like to be judged and convicted before you ever went to trial?

  • Grad parents, your jobs are just beginning

    Congratulations to the recent LaRue County High School graduates.

    More importantly, congratulations to graduates’ parents. Your child’s diploma belongs just as much to you as it does to them. You spent 18 years packing lunches, helping them with homework, and serving as your child’s personal chauffeur as you carted them to school, sports practices, and back home again.

  • Enjoy these days, it gets real, really fast

    Many things have changed since the day I graduated only two years ago from LaRue County High School. Most notably is that graduation is now held outside on the football field – something that graduating seniors pushed for – for many years. Apparently, I graduated only one year too early, because the very next year, they moved graduation to the football field – making us the last class to have graduated in the gym (so far).

  • Column: Where we're from

    The trees are changing their leaves and the scent of spring is in the air at LCHS. Another spring means another set of finals, end of tem assessments and another graduation. This time it’s us.

    We’ve traveled to school every day for 13 consecutive years now. I can’t believe how fast the time has passed.

  • Plan ahead for successful summer canning

    Whether you’ve been canning for years or are just starting out, now’s the time to plan ahead, so that you’ll be ready to make the most of this summer’s fresh fruits and vegetables.

    First, you need to decide which type of canner you’ll be using. There are two types of canners available: boiling water canners and pressure canners. A boiling water canner can safely be used to can high-acid foods like fruits, jams, jellies, pickles and acidified tomato products.

  • Maya Angelou: A voice not quieted by death

    It was another poet who said, “All I have is a voice.” But it was Maya Angelou, poet, author and so much more, who gave full-throated life to that idea in 86 years that almost defy description.

    Her death this week at her North Carolina home was a seismic event to the fans she accrued through a public life that had almost as many panels as a quilt: Writer, performer, award-winner, Oprah mentor, on one level; witness, conscience, teacher, activist, on a deeper one.

  • A few more words about photo day

    Sometimes the words I’m thinking do not make it on paper.

    Sometimes that’s a good thing – a very good thing.

    But last week, I failed to include an entire paragraph in a column and even if it’s a week late, it needs to be said.

    Last week, in this space, I wrote about the LaRue County High School seniors having their group photo taken at Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historic Park.
