Today's Opinions

  • Hair today, gone tomorrow

    We've tried bribery. We've begged. We've pleaded. All to no avail. After all of our years together, she's leaving us.

    Yep. My family's hairstylist is retiring.

    We're panicking. And it's not just me; the kids are in a tizzy, too. With the exception of a handful of occasions when our schedules didn't mesh, no one else has ever cut our hair.

    Now, if you're a man reading this, you likely won't understand our dilemma. "What's the big deal?" you're thinking. But I can pretty much anticipate the thought from many women: "Oh, you poor girl. I feel for you!"

  • It's time to perform your civic duty

    Tomorrow is Kentucky's Primary Election. And it's up to us to see that those who we believe will do the best job get the most votes.

    Of course, without many local races, officials don't expect a large turnout. However, County Clerk Mark Carney said he believes we'll have a better turnout locally than the state as a whole.

    Apathy certainly won't get us where we need to be.

  • What is censorship?

    A student newspaper adviser, with whom we had a working relationship, has resigned over a disagreement that he perceived as the school administration's censorship of student work.

    The administration disagrees.

    A story in The Press, an industry newspaper published by the Kentucky Press Association, said Tom Winski chose not to renew his contract with Lindsey Wilson College after new contract language required him to review articles for the LWC student publication - The View - prior to publication.

  • County folk locked out of alcohol vote

    Call me crazy, but I thought all Taylor Countians were a part of Campbellsville? I live in the county but when asked where I live I say "Campbellsville." I've lived in Campbellsville all my life. I never did understand why just the "city" people voted for mayor. But I'm glad Brenda Allen is our mayor.

    I never said anything. I let it go. But with this issue about alcohol being served in our restaurants and dining with a meal, I will not sit by and say nothing.

  • Reverse the Medicare cuts

    I urge you to do all you can to assure Congress reverses the mandated 10.6 percent cut in Medicare payments to doctors scheduled for July 2008. Action is needed by mid-June or Medicare will begin processing payment cuts.

    The cuts in payments to doctors will devastate seniors' and all military beneficiaries' access to health care by encouraging even more doctors to stop seeing Medicare and military TriCare patients. Military beneficiaries are affected even more severely because TriCare rates are capped at Medicare levels, and in many cases are discounted below Medicare's.

  • Practice what you pray

    Gov. Steve Beshear proclaimed May 1 as "Day of Prayer in Kentucky."

    Thank you, Governor. If I may, here is a prayer for the most innocent among us:

    "Jesus, I plead your blood over my sins and the sins of my nation. God end abortion and send revival to America."

    It's a simple prayer and easy to commit to memory. More information about this prayer can be found at www.bound4life.com. Biomedical discoveries continue to help us understand that, from conception, the life inside a mother's womb is an individual life, separate yet dependent upon his or her mom.

  • Vote how you want to vote

    On Tuesday, May 20, citizens living in the city of Campbellsville will have the opportunity to go into the voting booth and express their wishes relating to whether or not restaurants in Campbellsville that qualify should be able to serve liquor by the drink.

  • Do we really want alcohol?

    I am not a writer but feel that I need to state my views on the upcoming alcohol question. I heard on television that a number of our children by the age of 12 are alcoholics and on drugs.

    Do we really want to bring more sin and corruption to our communities? Alcohol has destroyed individuals and families.

    I urge you to please vote no on the alcohol question on our ballot. If you plan to vote yes or not vote at all, please reconsider and vote against this alcohol bill.
