    Those who intend to take advantage of the federal appliance rebate had better act fast.

    Just a week into the program, which began last Thursday, more than 60 percent of the $4 million allotted to Kentucky has been spent. The program continues until the funds are gone.

    1. a belief or judgment that rests on grounds insufficient to produce complete certainty.

    I didn't know that opinions could be wrong.

  • Hurt feelings shouldn't take a back seat to accountability

    In a landmark decision of the Supreme Court of the United States, Justice William Brennan wrote this country has "a profound national commitment to the principle that debate on public issues should be uninhibited, robust and wide-open, and that it may well include vehement, caustic, and sometimes unpleasantly sharp attacks on government and public officials."

    Kentucky legislators failed to honor that principle when they voted to allow elected school board members to evaluate the performance of school superintendents in secret.
