Today's Opinions

  • 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.

  • Graduation outdoors? THANK YOU

     I don’t know who decided to hold the 2013 LaRue County High School graduation outdoors – but it was a splendid idea.

  • Stay safe while you’re grilling

    Now that warmer weather is here, many will head outdoors to barbecue their favorite cuts of meat. This time of year always brings questions about the safe purchasing, storage, handling and cooking of meat.  

    The most effective way to prevent food borne illness is to prevent contamination.

  • Prayer at graduation?

    For the first time in memory Lincoln County High School in Central Kentucky will not have a planned prayer as part of its graduation ceremony, after six students, some who called themselves atheists, protested the move.

    That prompted a story by Editor Ben Kleppinger for the local weekly paper, The Interior Journal, published by Schurz Communications. The school allows a planned prayer at graduation as long as the senior class votes unanimously in favor of it.
