Today's Opinions

  • School Safety a Pressing Priority

    In a time when we hear far too many stories about violence in schools, lawmakers across the country should be working towards solutions to this epidemic.

    The stories we have seen about gun violence in schools are heartbreaking. Every child should expect to get on the bus every day and arrive at a safe and secure learning environment, and parents should not be worried about whether or not their son or daughter will make it home at the end of the day.                                

  • Bert and Ernie: Impassioned Lovers or Simply Friends?

    As a lifelong fan and expert on all things Jim Henson, nothing can really get under my froggy pointed collar like people who don’t know squat about The Muppets talking squat about The Muppets. Journalists calling the Muppet performers “voice actors.” People who call any puppet ever a Muppet. Bloggers claiming Elmo to be the worst thing to ever happen to Sesame Street. (He has done unbelievable—mostly financial—good for the show, regardless of what you think of him…but I digress).

  • Margie Gardner letter

    An Open Letter to God; and the Editor:

    Yes, God, I’ve always known that there is a difference between Heaven and Hell, but never realized how much until recently.  On June 5, I had a bad fall, breaking my ankle and my elbow.  Dr. Been took care of my broken bones like the pro that he is.  At E-town Hospital I was under the care of Dr. Badiwala who was both knowledgeable and compassionate.  All the nurses and aides were excellent.

  • Gary Gardner Letter

    Dear Editor,

    My mother is recuperating at Sunrise Manor Nursing Home in Hodgenville after a fall in which she sustained multiple broken bones, leaving her unable to stand or walk, or even to lift herself up in the bed.  

    As a preface, I wanted to clarify that the conditions she alludes to are actually more severe than she conveys in her letter.  The other morning, already needing to use the restroom then, she called for assistance but was left to wait in her bed for over two hours before anyone came.
