  • Bring unity to fight against anti-Americansim

    We believe our country is faced with an enemy within our borders every bit as strong as the enemies Americans battle on foreign shores everyday. On the one hand, there is a hodgepodge of vituperative anti-American groups, who see the world through a bitter prism of defeat and destruction, always ready to denigrate and denounce the greatness of our country. These groups often find support among left-leaning politicians, within our educational institutions, and from the mainstream media.

  • There is help for those in foreclosure

    In response to the Dec. 27 front-page article concerning home foreclosures, Sunset Beach Properties is trying very hard to work directly with local people and local banks to buy property before it goes into the foreclosure process.

    We can not only pay off the note but provide a little financial aid and manpower assistance to move that family as well as provide money for the immediate future. We also help in the form of not ruining one's credit.

  • Get your heart in the right place

    Jesus told me he delayed his second coming because most people's hearts ain't right. Isaiah 48:9 says "For the sake of My name, I delay My wrath, and for My praise I restrain it for you, in order not to cut you off."

  • Male chivalry: a dying breed

    Recently I was driving through a nearby community on my way to my sister's house. I stopped at a store, got out and heard a hissing noise. I had a slit on the side of my tire.

    I immediately got back in my car and pulled across the street to a tire store. By then my tire was almost flat.

    I got out of my van with my two young boys and a man came outside to ask me if I needed something. I explained to him about my tire and that I would need a replacement.

  • HR 1955/s goes too far

    We have a new threat on the horizon - HR 1955/S. 1959 Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007.

    The only homegrown terrorism I see lately is our own government trying to create a totalitarian police state. This is a government of the people, for the people, by the people. We are not of one mind, one belief, one religion. We are a diverse group of people and we have a right to assemble, to vote and to speak out when our government has gone too far.

  • Doesn't understand justice system

    I can't understand how the justice system works. People choose to deal in drugs and alcohol and are found guilty but somehow seem to miss time behind bars. They are allowed their freedom just to do it again.

    This so-called diversion is nothing more than a game lawyers play to increase their bank account. Where is justice?

    Let's keep paying these people just to feed our children drugs and other junk so in the future we can have even more children that are drug addicts, unwed mothers, etc. Good job system. What a screwed-up world we live in.

  • A vote against Christmas

    Democrats should be proud to know that one of their own, Rep. John Yarmuth (D-KY) was one of 27 other Democrats in the House who would not vote "Yes" for support of House Resolution 847.

    HR 847, titled: Recognizing the importance of Christmas and the Christian faith, was thankfully passed by 372 others who recognize the importance of supporting the Christian faith and our founding fathers.

    Weeks before this betrayal, Yarmuth voted for HR 635, titled: Recognizing the commencement of Ramadan.

  • Budget woes

    During the first 10 days in office, I have discovered that Kentucky's financial house is in serious disarray. In fact, we have inherited a budget situation easily described as beyond serious.

    As reported this week, the Consensus Forecasting Group issued what I interpret as dire warnings about the state's grim revenue estimates.

    For example, their numbers indicate a $120 million shortage in collections during the remainder of this fiscal year. I'm speaking of money already obligated. Other formerly made commitments will add to the size of the current fiscal year shortfall.

  • Perry Thomas is a great hire

    It was with great joy that my family and I read of the news that Coach Perry Thomas is returning to Campbellsville as the new head football coach at Campbellsville University.

    Over 10 years ago, my son, John, played football under Coach Thomas. John tore his ACL badly at football camp the summer before his junior year. He was not able to play football that fall, but the lessons he learned from his extremely dedicated football coach, Coach Thomas, as he rehabilitated, have never been forgotten.

  • School days

    After serving Thanksgiving leftovers for the third time, the remainder, which was a lot of good food, went down the garbage disposal. When we do that, I always think about the hungry and needy in the world who would be delighted to have that.

    I'm reminded of another time when I was in school of a caring and sweet lady who was in charge of the school lunchroom. At least three times a week, she would cook up a batch of homemade rolls.
