Today's Opinions

  • We write the chapters in our own lives

    It is a typical scene in our office.

    A person – generally irate – although sometimes simply confused – walks through the door, picks up a paper from the stand and slaps it on the counter.

    Wait – I take that back. Sometimes they are angry and confused.

    Sometimes they shake the paper.

    Other times, they turn a few pages and jab a finger at an article.

    “Who wrote this?” they demand.

    Sometimes they add a few choice words.

  • Celebrating the big 5-0: A time to reflect on bottomless mysteries

    Wonderful things happen when you turn 50.

    For instance, family members sneak around and put really funny ads in the newspaper letting everyone know you are now half a century old.

    On the other end of the spectrum is your annual doctor’s visit when he notices your birthday approaching and learns that your family has a history of colon cancer.

    “Time for a colonoscopy.”

  • Firefighters were tenacious

    Our sincere appreciation goes to the Hodgenville, Buffalo and Magnolia Fire Departments for their tenacious effort and unselfish work they gave to save the surrounding property when our barn was destroyed by fire June 17.

    These wonderful groups of people exhibit their valuable importance when disaster is experienced by people of LaRue County.

  • Fort Knox tour bus took a detour into writer's history

    During the last few years, I have wished more and more that I had written down all the stories my mom and dad told me when I was growing up.

    No matter how hard I try to remember, some of those details have slipped away. But every now and then, something will jolt a memory – like the jolt you get when the rickety bus you’re riding in hits a pothole.

    Two weeks ago, I had a chance to re-visit the story of how my parents met 60 years ago – on a bus bound for Fort Knox.

  • Buffalo High School photos sought

    The Buffalo School Apartments development is scheduled to begin very soon. The LaRue County Economic Development office working with Lexington based AU Associates and RHDI plan to demonstrate how preservation and reuse of historic buildings helps the community preserve its unique heritage, creates jobs putting people to work locally and encourages the preservation of traditional building skills. The local Board of Education also played a major role in the partnership.
