Today's Opinions

  • One of a kind

    On Sunday this past weekend, I went to see our very own Terry Sandidge speak at the Hometown Teams exhibit in downtown Hodgenville.

    For those of you who have been living under a rock the past couple of weeks, several of our community leaders and others worked hard to bring a traveling exhibit called “Hometown Teams” to LaRue County. The free exhibit showcases national sports displays, but it also showcases LaRue County sports displays as well. The exhibit includes newspaper articles, trophies, uniforms, photographs and other memorabilia.

  • Make use of the sidewalk

    Dear Editor,

    I recall a recent article about a wonderful young man who used his time and talent to extend the sidewalk in front of the LaRue County Middle School so more students could exit their vehicles at one time thereby eliminating the long line of cars.

  • Get your bread and milk

    I’m glad to see we all made it through Winter Storm Hunter. One of my pet peeves is when they started naming winter storms.

    It’s ridiculous to me that everything gets branded Winter Storm ______ (fill in the blank.) However, I think that is just one of the many signs of this crazy nutso world we live in today.

    I did a little research and found out that The Weather Channel and other media outlets made naming winter storms popular in 2012 with Winter Storm Athena. Since then, they began branding winter storms on every one of their broadcasts.

  • Let’s talk about the new year

    Happy New Year! Oh wait, it’s January 17. Where did those 17 days go? I need to hurry up on all those ‘things that I want to do this year’.

  • Senator Meredith’s legislative update
  • Schools of thought

    Dear Editor,

    We are hearing a lot lately from school boards who have stepped up and made a case both locally and statewide for both restoring and increasing funding for schools.

  • Kicking off the 2018 session

    By: Steve Meredith 

    It was quite a treat to kick off the pivotal 2018 Session of the General Assembly with the talented 100th Army Band from nearby Fort Knox playing the National Anthem and My Old Kentucky Home. We also took a moment to officially swear Senator Jimmy Higdon (R-Lebanon) in as the new Senate President Pro Tempore. No one is more deserving and our chamber will continue to benefit from his leadership.

  • The Escape Goat

    Now you see him, now you don’t; rumor has it someone has been stalking a stretch of I-65 between Sonora and Glendale. His description: Male, gray hair, gray beard, measuring in at approximately 3’6”—not counting the horns. His name is Houdini, and he’s a goat—who is getting a following.
