Today's Opinions

  • Hay, where were you in 1942?

    Last week, Lindsey Burgess came in our office looking for an article about her dad, Bobby Rogers, that was published on April 24, 1996. Bobby passed away Sept. 24.

    It brought back some good memories – about Bobby and my dad, Donald Gene Powell, who died in 2003. I thought I’d run it again just for the hay of it.

    He has a habit of looking at his feet when he talks. But when he finishes a sentence, he looks up quickly – looks you straight in the eye – and smiles.

  • Rewards for entrepreneur's hard work could dissolve 'overnight'

    Lexington entrepreneur Paul Spicer faced a big decision 24 years ago.

    As I was on my knees one Saturday afternoon, I had an epiphany.

  • Frankfort memorial established for grieving parents

    For women who have lost a baby to miscarriage, stillbirth, or abortion the grief can seem endless. But now there’s an opportunity for closure, a chance to honor an unborn child.

    The Kentucky Memorial for the Unborn, planned for a bluff in Frankfort Cemetery overlooking the river, will be a place of reflection, healing and hope.

  • Give dads a chance to be responsible

    In today’s society families are made up of a variety of mixes. There are single moms, grandparents acting as guardians, whole families and several other variances.

    One variance not often mentioned is the role of a father. Several active fathers live in our communities. Why are they left out of the picture so often?

  • Loyall continues community service after retirement

    Being a wife of a public figure in the agriculture community, I have had the privilege of getting to know many great people along the way. One of those folks is Becky Loyall. Becky and her husband Randall, are 26-year residents of LaRue County and have served in so many community programs, there’s no way to name them all.

    Becky has retired from serving as the local State Farm agent of which she served for over 29 years, but that hasn’t stopped her from being involved.

  • Hughes making the most of return home

    As I began my time in LaRue County, I was first introduced to Jeff Hughes.

    Jeff is president of the Lincoln Days Celebration that begins Saturday, Oct. 2. Jeff has served on the Lincoln Days committee for four years and has worked very hard this year getting the event sponsors and supporters all going in the same direction.

    Born and raised in Hodgenville, Hughes left small town life to go to the “Big Cities,” believing he would never return. But after working some 30 years, Hughes found his way back home to Hodgenville.

  • Preaching politics from the pulpit

    Preaching politics from the pulpit is being done more and more by religious preachers. True Christianity is inspired by the apostles’ doctrine. Jesus instructed them to preach what they had heard him say. We, by secondary means, are to preach the inspired word from the New Testament. The Holy Spirit inspired men worked hard to make sure it was preserved for all generations.
