  • You can help show care for victoms too

    National Crime Victims' Rights Week, which will be observed April 13-19, calls on all of us to consider the life-changing impact that crime has on victims and their loved ones, and to make justice for victims an urgent priority for our communities. This year's theme clearly expresses that sentiment: "Justice for Victims, Justice for All."

    This means that there will be no justice for any of us if we don't always seek fairness for our victims. I ask now that everyone in this community reach out to those who have been victimized and stand behind all those harmed by crime.

  • Voting is single most important civic duty

    Voting is one of the most important things that can be done as an American. Voting gives people the right to voice their opinion on pending laws, ordinances and who they want to serve in local and state offices. It also will let people decide who will be the leaders of our country.

    Voting makes it impossible for someone or one party to stay in an office longer than the legal amount of time.

  • Health missionaries are well received

    Well people, it's here now. Those hard times that are coming are already upon us. A story on "60 Minutes" detailed a famous person who runs a medical program comprised of volunteer doctors and nurses of various fields banding together and providing free health care for a weekend for those who are either uninsured or underinsured.

  • Protect innocent life

    Feb. 7, 2008 was a glorious day in the history of the General Assembly of the state of Kentucky. On that date, the Republican-controlled Senate passed a comprehensive abortion bill, SB 40, by a vote of 34-4. After passage, the bill was sent to the Democratic controlled House of Representatives.

  • Doctor shoppers are multiplying

    On Saturday, March 22, 2008, a patient called my office complaining of a toothache. The name sounded familiar and alarming. My records indicated that I last saw this individual in 1999. After several calls to area pharmacies, he was identified as a "doctor shopper" at that time.

    "Doctor shopping" refers to the practice of a patient requesting care from multiple practitioners, often simultaneously, without making efforts to coordinate care or informing the practitioner of the multiple caregivers.

  • Troops instrumental in success of surge

    I wanted to write and thank the community of Campbellsville for its support of our nation's sons and daughters serving in Iraq, Afghanistan and around the world. Campbellsville and Campbellsville University hold a special place in my life.

    I graduated from Campbellsville University in 1984 and have served as an Army chaplain for the past 16 years. I grew up in Hodgenville and still have family living there. My daughter is currently a freshman at CU.

  • Volunteers sought for 2008 PRIDE Spring Cleanup April 5-19

    Another spring is unfolding across Southern and Eastern Kentucky. As the redbud trees begin to blossom, I urge all residents to help in removing unsightly trash from Taylor County's roads, streams and hillsides during our annual PRIDE Spring Cleanup on April 5-19. Recruit your friends, family and neighbors to help.

    You can help by volunteering for cleanup events already scheduled by your local PRIDE coordinators. A list of activities near you can be found at www.kypride.org or by contacting PRIDE Coordinator Debbie McNear at 465-7729.

  • The potholes

    The other day I pulled into the gravel parking lot of a store I do business with and in the middle of the parking lot was a good country mud hole, the likes of which I hadn't seen in years.

  • Disenfranchised

    I have just returned from the Madison County Kentucky Courthouse disappointed and disenfranchised. For the first time in my life, Kentucky's vote will actually matter in a Presidential Primary, but I will not be allowed to participate.
