  • Letter to the Editor

    I have followed, with interest, the developments surrounding the so-called Bluegrass pipeline and still, for the life of me cannot figure out where the long term benefit is for the residents along the proposed route of Kentucky (LaRue, Nelson, Hardin, Anderson, Woodford, Scott and Franklin counties).

    I ask you, is it really worth the offered price to have your land disturbed for construction and to be at the mercy of the pipeline for any projects where ground is broken?

  • Walk a mile in strange shoes

    A couple weeks ago I attended the community forum (in Nelson County) on the proposed natural gas pipeline coming through Kentucky. For the record, on what I have heard and studied, I am opposed to this project and hope it doesn’t happen, but as a realist, I know it will happen anyway because big business and big money rule the world. But that’s another story.

  • Labeling an entire subgroup is a mistake

    A few weeks ago, the buzz on some news outlets and online was about Michael Jeffries, the CEO of Abercrombie & Fitch. It wasn’t really news, but rather statements Jeffries made to Salon magazine in 2006 in reference to the clothing brand not including women’s sizes bigger than large.

  • Statistics are brutal when they hit home

    One-in-five Ethiopian babies will die before reaching age 5.

    Some websites say it is one-in-11.

    Either way – what a brutal statistic.

    According to the National Institute of Health, Ethiopians have large families that suffer from a lack of basic needs such as food, clothing, housing, and health care and education.

    Too many children – not enough resources. It’s no wonder so many Ethiopian children die so early – while others are orphaned.

  • GUEST COLUMN - What’s wrong with a little pipeline through Kentucky?

     Local citizens are gradually hearing about a proposed Bluegrass Pipeline to run through Nelson County on its way from Pennsylvania and New York to the Gulf. It might be helpful to lay out some of the issues from the perspective of community sustainability.

  • Is your child ready for kindergarten?

         In Kentucky, the Governor’s Office of Early Childhood defines school readiness to mean that a child enters school ready to engage in and benefit from early learning experiences that best promote the child’s success. You want early learning in a child’s preschool years to make children entering school eager and excited to learn.
