Today's Opinions

  • A man’s best friend

    It has been a hard weekend for me as I stayed home sick last Friday afternoon and all day last Saturday.

    We are on the go a lot and it was actually weird to be at home all day on Saturday. Although it was weird to me, our Shih Tzu dog, Charlie, loved having one of us home with her all day.

    I laid on the couch most of the day on Saturday watching football while Charlie laid on my stomach and slept.

  • Learning about littering

    Dear Editor,

    On Saturday, October 28, approximately 40 youth soccer players, parents, coaches and board members picked up trash along ten miles of LaRue County Roads.

    Despite the cold, wet conditions, we met at 8:45 a.m. at the Buffalo Fire Department to receive our safety gear and trash bags and to determine who would clean which roads.

  • Fallback plan

    Autumn has always been my favorite season; for me, the best part of fall in Kentucky is that it’s not summer. Nothing against sunshine, but I really love wearing sweaters and all the things this season brings like football and hot tea, glowing pumpkins and long runs through crunchy leaves.

    Another great part of autumn is the onset of the holidays and after Halloween here, I’m excited for more. Louisville had the most amazing Jack O’ Lanterns and Hodgenville had some fantastic costumes. (Check out the winners and pictures on page 22A and 23A, by the way.)

  • Help all ages avoid social isolation

    Just as we need food and water to survive, we also need meaningful social relationships and connections.

    While it is okay to feel lonely and to be alone at times, chronic loneliness can cause serious health concerns. Loneliness, if not addressed, can lead to social isolation, physical and mental decline and depression.

  • Cauliflower: A versatile veggie

    Cauliflower is a versatile vegetable, you can eat it fresh or lightly steamed in salads or cooked it can even substitute for mashed potatoes. Cauliflower is packed full of nutrients and has very few calories. In fact, a half-cup serving of cauliflower contains an entire day’s dose of vitamin C and only 25 calories. Cauliflower also provides 10 percent of your daily folate needs and 8 percent of your dietary fiber requirements. It is very low in sodium and has no fat or cholesterol.

  • Letters: Trash for Cash

  • He knows what you need

    Last week was a stressful week, so I went to the Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historic Park last Wednesday on my lunch break to relax and unwind. It was nice and I love going there when I can.

    However, when I went to start my car and go back to work, it wouldn’t start. I just sat there for a few minutes before I even tried to call someone for help, just hoping that a miracle would happen and it would start, but no miracles for me.
