Today's Opinions

  • Keep him from the bees

    Imagine driving down the road and pulling in your driveway to find a man wielding a broom swinging it wildly in the air. This is exactly what happened to me one evening. I came home to find my dear husband trying his best to eliminate the carpenter bee population around our log home. In addition to the log house there was an expansive wrap-around deck, which the bees didn’t touch. I guess the logs were tastier or they didn’t like the pressure treated wood on the deck.

  • Myth or reality: The Walter Mitty Life

    So many of us judge our own lives to be boring and uneventful. We long for something, anything, to happen. We long to be SOMEBODY. To accomplish something. We long for a fiction. I always think about “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty,” the short story by James Thurber in which the main character entertains himself with imaginary fame and glory.

    The short story was made into a 1947 movie starring Danny Kaye and then remade in a 2013 movie starring Ben Stiller.

  • Microsoft Windows gets a 10
  • Protect your private information

    Illegal computer hacking of your personal information is so prevalent today that many people simply feel defenseless to protect themselves. But you are not totally defenseless! While you might not be able to protect yourself in every situation, there are still a few things you can do to lessen your risks.

  • America: Love it... and make it better by volunteering

    A long time ago there was a bumper sticker that read: “America, Love It or Leave It”. At that time Dad pointed out that it should read “America, Love it and Make it Better”.

  • Lists and twists

    Here is your reminder: Summer will be gone before you know it!

    So you have been warned. Time to get out the Summer Bucket List and do the things that you will regret if you do not get something accomplished Yet Again This Year.

    Those things that cannot be done in cooler weather, those things that cannot be done with the kids once school starts again and those things that cannot be regained, once they are gone.

    I thought I would share my Bucket List for this summer.

  • There are good people on drugs

    I enjoyed listening to Andy Beshear speak at the local rotary club meeting last Thursday. Beshear is running for attorney general and stopped by Hodgenville on the campaign trail.

    Beshear’s speech was centered around three main issues that he said Kentuckians were struggling with the most. Those issues were the child abuse epidemic, drug epidemic and the increasing amount of scams across the state.

    While all three are major issues that need to be addressed, the issue that struck home with me the most was the drug epidemic.

  • Celebrate Kentucky’s ties to Independence Day

    By State Representative Terry Mills

    As we ready to celebrate the Fourth of July on Saturday, it’s worth remembering the words President Kennedy spoke at Philadelphia’s Independence Hall a little more than five decades ago.
