Today's Opinions

  • Sleep tight, don't let the bed bugs bite

    I couldn’t find the pigs at the state fair Sunday. I saw cows, chickens, rabbits, goats, pigeons, doves and geese, but no pigs. The baby pigs were always one of my favorite animals to see at the state fair, though I don’t know why since I always feel bad that they eventually could end up in my belly.

  • Golf is for girls too

    After reading Ron Benningfield’s Aug. 23 article “Golfers eye regional championship, Coach Rip Collins pleased by turnout," I was reminded when I graduated LCHS in 1970, golf was not offered to girls. Forty years later, Benningfield reports four girls joined the 2010 golf team.

    Concurrently, about 30 boys join the LCHS boys' golf team and the coach is pleased.

  • Protecting sources means protecting the public

    During the course of its investigation into the current Gulf of Mexico oil spill, The Associated Press was given information from the then-office of Mineral Management Services that was not making a lot of sense.

  • At last! Lincoln Memorial Building opens

    After a long year of renovations, the Memorial Building at Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historic Park is again welcoming visitors.

    Officials made the decision to close the building to repair the skylight and correct mold problems – a process that was expected to take several months. The century-old building held enough structural surprises to delay the completion.

  • Pride of the Counties a success

    The LaRue County Chamber of Commerce thanks everyone who contributed to our booth at the Kentucky State Fair “Pride of the Counties.” Volunteers donated many hours to tell about LaRue County and our many amenities.

    Others are placing photos on the Chambers Facebook of children with his or her cabin constructed of Lincoln Logs. The Lincoln Logs were a great success and even adults enjoyed the activity.

    We thank Iris LaRue and The Lincoln Museum for lending special items for our display case.

  • My baby you will always be

    One of the hardest things a mother will have to do is let her child go. I had to do that last weekend. After 12 years of school and ballgames in every sport. I had to pack his clothes, TV, and his beloved PlayStation in my truck and drive him to a new beginning – College.

    What ever will I do now? I don’t remember ever being without him. I’ve always done for him or with him. I need to find Carrie Ann again ... and put Mom on the back burner.

  • 'Dinner for Schmucks' offers no compliment to Schmucks

    Has anyone else noticed that there is a new movie out now with “Schmuck” in its title?

  • Appreciates donors

    Rust-Wright Funeral Home was accidentally left out of the list of senior citizens donations at the fair. We apologize for this mistake.
