Today's Opinions

  • Main Street thanks

    Main Street relies on help from our friends such as the Lincoln Museum, Chamber of Commerce, City of Hodgenville, board members and directors.

    The value of a volunteer group such as the Genealogy Society is easy to show in matching hours contributed toward the Historic District expansion project. The value of volunteers is hard to assess and impossible to overstate. The recent luncheon is a case in point. The Community Room cost ($100) was donated (a frequent happening for us) by the Lincoln Museum. 

  • Sometimes journalism leads you back home

    As a lifelong journalist, I love a good story. Here’s one for you.

    A 16-year-old rides a 100-cc trail bike to a town near his home to apply for his first job. He’s only one semester removed from a high school typing class that may be his only qualification for the position.

    He gets the part-time job, makes the most of it and begins a career. Through a lot of effort and long hours, he comes across opportunities that eventually take him far away from home. But life knocks him around and sends him back.

  • Legislative info now iPhone friendly

    Kentuckians with iPhones will find it easier than ever to remain connected to the Kentucky State Capitol.

    The Legislative Research Commission has unveiled an iPhone-friendly way for people to have ready access to information about lawmakers, legislation moving through the General Assembly and legislative news. With one touch on their home screen, iPhone users can pull up key features of the Kentucky Legislature Home Page that have been formatted specifically for their phones.

  • Buffalo apartments a waste of tax dollars

    Every now and then I read something in the newspapers that simply takes my breath away. This time it’s the recent story about the Buffalo School Apartments project.

    I think I got it.

    AU Associates gets the property declared a historic place. This qualifies them to get federal and state money to renovate it. They get $2.8 million. Can I assume that is tax money? I think so, money we paid in state and federal taxes.

    “We’ve really been praying for this for some time,” said (Johan) Graham.

  • KACo board takes chance on 'same old, same old'

    Every now and then a government body has the opportunity to truly “fix things.” A second chance to do things right.

  • May Kentucky be smart about pyramids

    My first acquaintance with pyramids was in history and geography classes – where I learned that pyramids were monuments to important people in the Middle East who died a very long time ago.

    Then pyramids showed up in math classes.  

  • Elvis and Meatloaf appreciate attendance

    We would like to thank everyone who supported our recent Perkins Brothers Concert with Elvis and Meatloaf.com at The Historic State Theater in Elizabethtown.

    When the weather turned bad, the snow piled up and the temperatures dropped to single digits we expected a big drop in attendance. We were very pleasantly surprised to see hundreds of you in those new seats. You certainly showed your support for the State Theater and we thank you for it.

  • Foster families needed

    Topping the movie box office recently is the incredible true story of Michael Oher, a first round pick in last year’s National Football League draft who faced a future without hope as a homeless teenager with few people in his life who seemed to care.

    “The Blind Side” is not a story about football, or even homelessness, but about the hope that one family can provide to a lonely young person.
