  • LETTER: Just do your job

    Just do your job

    Dear Editor,

    Mr. McConnell: Do your job or get out! Your job in Washington is to confirm judges or not confirm and to review budgets, not when it suits your fancy. You and your republican party have spent the last eight years wasting tax payers money paying you to do your job. Sitting around refusing to confirm a new judge or review the President’s budget is not doing your job. You have spent 8 years sticking it to the President.

  • Smoking affects more than the smoker

    By Steven Curtsinger

    Student Columnist

    We all know someone that smokes or has smoked at some point in their lifetime. How has that person’s bad habit affected you? Fortunately the number of Americans who smoke has steadily dropped since records were first recorded in 1965, when 42.4 percent of Americans 18 and older smoked. This number has dropped to below 30 percent since 1987.

  • Startup success shares lessons learned

    By Lisa Williams

    Just over three years ago, husband and wife team Bob Purcell and Rebecca Wheeling answered a calling to turn a bright idea into a business.

  • Frankfort Focus - Consumer protection key in general assembly

    When it comes to the public’s safety and well-being, consumer protection may not always grab the headlines, but that doesn’t diminish its importance.

    It was the key theme last week in the Kentucky House, which moved forward not one but four bills touching on this issue.

  • LETTER: Focus on improving care of nursing home residents

    Dear editor,

    Nursing home residents should have all the rights afforded to any of the rest of us. In fact, Congress and Kentucky legislators enacted an additional bill of residents’ rights because for more than 30 years it’s been obvious that our sickest and most vulnerable need help exercising their rights. It’s not fair to put medical review panels between residents and their right to their day in court if necessary.

  • One of the more acceptable sins

    If eyes are windows to the soul, the tongue is certainly the thermostat of the heart. What is the temperature of your heart? Is your heart warm: Filled with good and encouraging words for people around you? Or is it cold: talking down about someone, tearing away at their character, looks or circumstances? Maybe your heart is somewhere in the middle; a tepid battle ground that changes with it’s surroundings? Sometimes you encourage and uplift with your words, other times, if it suits you and you feel the need, you tear down and destroy with your words.
