Today's Opinions

  • June is Elder Abuse Awareness Month

     An estimated three to five million older adults in America were victims of abuse in 2011. Elder abuse often occurs at home, with a family member or caregiver causing the abuse. In many instances, it can go undetected for some time. 

  • Ignore the rain - visit the Fair

     Did you notice the downpour that struck LaRue County just after 4 p.m. Monday?

  • Just Ask

    Younger students may receive laptops
    I heard LaRue County High School is replacing their student laptops. First of all, is this true? And secondly, are they available to the public for purchase?

    The Laptops of LaRue project was rolled out in October 2010. The intent was for the laptops to be used by LCHS students for four years before they were replaced.

    Superintendent Sam Sanders said the district is “already planning the “next four-year cycle.”

  • 30 years of Merry Sunshine brings international blessings

    Thirty and a half years ago, I dragged my parents to a photography studio to have their pictures made.

    Mom, as always, was cheerful and smiling. Dad was there, begrudgingly, but he wasn’t going to smile for the nice lady with the camera – for Mom – for me – or anyone else.

  • Newspaper theft a costly choice

    When it comes right down to it, we all make choices everyday that greatly impact our lives and the lives of others whether we realize it or not. Last week I made a choice to help with our vacation Bible school at our church. The choice was easy. The decisions I had to make throughout the week, not so much. Being the leader of 13 four year olds in itself is a job. Dealing with a few children that were having difficulty being part of the group, exhausting.
    We talked a lot about making choices. Sometimes we make good choices, and sometimes we make bad choices.

  • Letter to the Editor

    I loved the pictures of the mini mall that were in the newspaper recently. These pictures were on page 22A and each picture had a caption beside, or below, with names and what the students were selling.

    The one thing that was missing from the collection of pictures was acknowledgement to the company that completed the shirts for the students. Blazin’ Xpressions in Hodgenville did all the shirts for the students to wear at the mini mall.

  • Customer service hits new low when store runs out of muscle

    When a refrigerator croaks – when its compressor bleats its last breath – you have no choice.

    You must get another one – pronto – or risk losing all those interesting things you have stored that probably should have been thrown out weeks earlier.

    But that’s beside the point.

  • For want of an aspirin, a battle could be lost

     Like millions of other baby boomers, I’m on a daily aspirin regimen.
