Today's Opinions

  • Normal? What do you call normal?

    We all have it. Cluttering our spare rooms, basements, attics or garages. We accumulate it through the years, amassing massive collections as we make our way through life. Junk.

    My obsession began sometime during my high school years, when I started earning a dollar. I'd always been a film buff, and at some point I realized there was a whole world of movie memorabilia out there. And thus began my downward spiral into obsessive collecting of anything related to the films I loved.

  • God really does care

    Not to be preachy, but folks, God cares. That's all there is to it. Many wrong people get away with a lot against others, putting them in some pretty precarious hardships, but if those victims just turn their heads up and ask for help from God, it'll come over the time it is needed, sometimes in the most surprising ways.

    I have found that it is hard to find faith in the fact that God really cares about what goes on down here on earth, but once that faith finally shows itself in me, over time it can be just as hard if not harder to maintain it.

  • Gas price hike hurts us all

    It's more than "water cooler talk" or casual conversation these days.

    The price of gas is affecting our everyday lives.

    It's hard for most of us to drive past a gas station without at least a casual glance at the price sign. And oftentimes that glance is more than just casual.

    Last Friday, stories about increasing gas prices were buzzing about, with projections as high as $4.50 or $5 a gallon.

    One common thread in nearly all the stories: Why?

  • Teaching active citizenship

    Secretary of State

    When our founding fathers emerged from the Constitutional Convention in 1789, they gave America the principles that continue to guide us to the present. Not only does the Constitution guide American democracy, but it is the longest lasting constitution in human history and has served as an inspiration for democratic constitutions around the world.

  • Why is gas so high?

    If the national average gas price increased by 12 cents over a two-day period because of Hurricane Ike, then why did the prices in Campbellsville increase an average of 45 cents over the four days prior to Ike's landfall?

    This really seems like price gouging to me. They hear something on TV or the radio and up go the prices. How do we go about investigating this problem?

  • Poor customer service these days

    I left a local store this morning very frustrated. I spend between $100 and $200 a week at the local establishment. In today's economy, we have to cut costs where we can and the prices at that particular establishment can't be beat.

  • He is definitely 'one of ours'

    Many of us can remember listening to Everette Lee, one of the founders of Campbellsville's Fourth of July Celebration, remark on Main Street during opening ceremonies: "They're one of ours," when introducing someone being honored.

    That phrase could not be any more evident than when John "J.B." Holmes plays for the United States during the 37th Ryder Cup this week at Valhalla.

  • Cancer will change one's life forever

    The "c" word is one no one wants to hear.

    It changes your life, and the lives of your friends, family and perhaps everyone who comes into contact with you.

    After interviewing the Payne family (see today's front page story), I began thinking of how cancer has impacted my life.

    Three of my four grandparents have had some form of cancer. Today, only one of those grandparents is still living.
