Today's Opinions

  • COLUMN: Obama's broken promise

     A recent study published by the Society of Actuaries — the nation's leading group of financial risk analysts, and as non-partisan a group as you will find — revealed that thanks to Obamacare, the costs of medical claims for Kentuckians next year would rise an average of 34 percent. With wages stagnant and gas and tuition prices skyrocketing, these premium increases will be especially devastating for middle-class families.

  • COLUMN: Grace is extended to thieves like me

     Just when I think I'm beyond doing something particularly horrendous and downright wrong, I do it.

    I stole a packet of Sweet 'N Low the other day.

    I put it back, because I felt guilty. Actually, I put it back because my daughter caught me, and then I felt guilty. But putting it back doesn't change the fact that I'm a Sweet 'N Low thief.

  • JUST ASK: Flea market

     Are they planning to have “flea market days” at the LaRue County Fairgrounds again this summer?

    ~•~

    Marie Riggs, a recent addition to the LaRue County Fair Board, has taken over this project.

    Riggs said the flea market will be open 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturdays beginning April 13.

    Call her at 325-3041. She will provide information about costs and set-ups. 

  • LETTER: Looking for photos of Ovesen Heights

     My father was pastor of Ovesen Heights Baptist Church from about 1972 to 1976.

    I am looking for photos of all the churches where he pastored. I recall being in the 25-member youth choir with Beulah Davenport leading. My mother played the piano.

    I have been a minister of music and youth since 1979 and am still going strong with a youth group of 22.

    If you have photos of the church you are willing to share, please send them or contact me at jimmyjj333@gmail.com.

  • LETTER: Conservation District thanks partners at banquet

     The LaRue County Conservation District would like to thank everyone who worked to make this year’s annual awards dinner so successful.

    Connie Smith with the LaRue County 4-H Cooking Club and its members once again prepared a wonderful meal that was enjoyed by all. We appreciate LaRue County Extension Service for letting us have the use of their facilities, and their staff for being so pleasant to work with. 

  • JUST ASK: The chair

     Does anyone know what “the chair” represents?

    This wicker chair was tied to a tree behind the LaRue County Courthouse a couple of months ago.

    Two people at the courthouse had different explanations. One said someone from Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Church, adjacent to the courthouse, tied the chair to the tree for a church function.
