Today's Opinions

  • Concern about what the community looks like to visitors

    Dear Editor,

    After reading last week’s article on the American Queen Steamboat Company tours, we were filled with such pride in our community.   Even living on the road to Lincoln’s Birthplace, it always amazes us to read the statistics of visitors each year that travel to LaRue County to tour our park and visit the museum. 

  • Saving challenges for women

    America Saves, a national campaign that promotes savings, notes significant differences in savings between men and women. A 2016 survey showed that woman were notably behind across 12 important financial indicators including consumer debt, savings habits, emergency savings, and general savings progress. As concerns continue to rise over American’s often inadequate retirement and emergency savings, it’s become clear that the gender disparity can no longer be pushed aside.

  • Five mistakes when reading food labels

     Food and Health Communications shares these common mistakes made by consumers when trying to make healthy food choices.

    Mistake one: Ignore the label. Nutrition facts labels are a great source of tons of information about the food inside the package, yet many people completely ignore them. Check the nutrition facts for information about sodium, sugar, and fat content, then choose foods that contain less of those ingredients.

  • LETTER: There are consequences for littering

    Dear Editor,

    Picture this. You’re driving down the road and finish the Polar Pop in your hand, all the cup holders are full, and you have nowhere to put the empty cup. What do you do? More often than not I bet the answer is to roll down the window and throw it out. And if we’re all being honest we’ve all done this at some point in our lives with some type of trash or another. But what most of us don’t stop to think about is what it is actually doing to our environment and community.
