Today's Opinions

  • Christians can be religious jerks

    According to Forest Gump, Christians are like a box of chocolates.

    You can’t always tell which ones are nuts.

    Also, when you bite into a bad one, it ruins your taste for the rest of the box.

    That’s what I used as my opening Sunday as the invited guest speaker at the local Unitarian-Universalist fellowship.

  • Jamboree fan

    It has been a long time since I went to the Lincoln Jamboree.

    My family and I went Saturday night and it was great. Rick Whitlock and Blake Whitlock were wonderful (a few Johnny Cash songs). Joel Ray needed a haircut but that didn’t stop his jokes. And the price was just $8. Movies are $8 and you only get half the fun.

    At intermission, there was soft ice cream and the singers sold tapes and gave interviews.

    Thank you, Joel Ray, for the memories. I wish you would bring the raffle back at intermission.

  • Jaden's Day a success

    We want to thank everyone who had a part in making Jaden’s Day 2010 Celebration a success. We raised and donated $1,000 to the Ronald McDonald House.

    A special thanks to Lee’s Famous Recipe for their donation of cole slaw for our plate dinners we sold and for The LaRue County Herald News for sharing our story about Jaden.

  • Patriotism conflicts with ‘content neutral’ territory

    Truism: It’s OK to sing the National Anthem at any place, any time, in the United States.

    This truism is not true.

    There are always exceptions. Sometimes it’s inappropriate to sing period. Please do not ever sit behind me and sing in a movie theater. You may end up wearing a box of popcorn.

    Besides that – if you thought, like me, that your freedom to express patriotism is unlimited in our country, you would be wrong.

    You cannot sing the National Anthem at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.

  • Free prostate screenings available at State Fair
