Today's Opinions

  • LETTER: Remember the children during the holidays

    As we embark on the holiday season, our thoughts are filled with images of gathering around a table with relatives and loved ones. While we’ll spend plenty of time at shopping malls and parties in the coming weeks, the most festive and warming holiday setting remains the home.

    That is, if you have a home.

  • COLUMN: Guthrie endorses historic solution to historic problem

    Congress has an opportunity this week to make a historic decision that would permanently change the culture of spending in Washington. Our nearly $15 trillion of accumulated debt is a threat to our nation’s economic recovery, our national security and the welfare of future generations.

    We have already succeeded in changing the debate in Washington from “How much can we spend?” to “How much can we cut?” Now, we must go even further and pass a Balanced Budget Amendment.

  • COLUMN: Veterans deserve our show of respect

    Veterans Day, celebrated annually on Nov. 11, was set aside as a day to be dedicated to honor veterans who selflessly exhibited patriotism, love for country and willingness to take the sacrifice that accompanies serving our great nation.
    The day often is celebrated with patriotic ceremonies, speeches, presentations and parades. It is most definitely a day in which the community should support and be involved – wholeheartedly.

  • Columnist's words brings World War II to life

    This time of year – deer hunting season, that is – reminds me of my Uncle Hardin, my dad’s older brother.
    Only those who knew James Harding Powell as a child called him “Hardin.’” When he became an adult and moved on to bigger things, he was known as “Jim.”

  • LETTER: Lincoln Memorial ceremony gave time to reflect

    I just wanted to thank everyone that helped with the centennial celebration of the dedication of the Lincoln Monument.

    The park was beautiful, the staff is very professional, and hearing our State Champion LaRue County High School Band play those particular selections made for a great event.

  • Band appreciates community support

    I am writing to express my sincere thanks to this community for its support of the LaRue County High School Band. The last two weeks’ congratulatory messages, gestures, and events associated with the Band of Hawks’ State Championship have been heartwarming for both members and staff. God has blessed this organization tremendously.

  • LETTER: Band of Hawks set record in 2000 that still stands

    I would like to comment on the statement made that the Band of Hawks had set a school high score at this year's AA West Regional competition of 89.2 in Owensboro, placing second overall.

    This is a very good score but it is on record that in 2000 Class 2A West Regionals in Hart County, LaRue County scored a 91.15 to take first place that year. The results can be viewed at http://marching.kyband.com/kmeascores/2000AAWestRegionals.html.

  • LETTER: Lincoln Days tractor show a success

    We want to thank everyone for turning out for this year's tractor show at the Lincoln Days Festival and hope that everyone enjoyed themselves. A special thank you for the participants in the new antique farm truck class.
