Today's Opinions

  • My fork goes where?

     

    It's something our parents tried to instill in us all. But it's also something some of us have forgotten over the years. And now, with people being as busy as they are, it might have gone by the wayside entirely.

    I went to a dining etiquette workshop on Monday afternoon at Campbellsville University. Look in Monday's issue for photos from the event.

  • Feeding America feeds those in Taylor County

    Feeding America, Kentucky's Heartland is a nonprofit, charitable food bank located in Elizabethtown, Ky. It is one of the 200 Feeding America affiliated Food Banks across the nation.

    The main purpose of this letter is to familiarize you with FAKH's mission; we have found that most people outside of our immediate area are not familiar with the very important role and the critical service we provide to those in need throughout the entire region of central, south central and western Kentucky.

  • A new hope for Taylor County

     

    If you build it, they will come.

    The old saying will hold true, I'm sure, for two new homes in Taylor County, The House of Hope and J&W's House of Hope. You can read about the homes on today's front page.

    The concept is simple - a handful of residents got together and are turning two houses into transitional homes for those who have battled drug addiction.

  • A fourth pair of shoes

    I owned three pairs of shoes when this story began.

    A pair of shoes showed up at my house a few years back. That's not all that unusual, except these showed up by themselves, with no one attached.

    I was coming up the drive to the garage one day when I saw a plastic Walmart bag with something in it lying against the house. There's always something laying around our house, mostly kids, so my curiosity wasn't peaked until a couple of days later. The bag was still there.

  • The Bible's message is not just in its words

    If you were to insist that what makes the Bible a special book is not its outward appearance - whether it's bound in leather or cloth, colored bright pink or plain brown - but what's inside - its message, meaning, and purpose - I would heartily agree.

    But then again, the very presence of the Good Book can not only speak to the soul, it can even save a life.

  • Reader upset with emergency notification

    Should a resident of Campbellsville find out via a McDonald's employee that the city is under a water advisory? That is how I found out this past weekend.

    I received no official alerts, although I do receive tornado, thunderstorm, amber, and golden alerts. No radio or television warnings were noticed. Did they exist and I missed them?

    Someone needs to take responsibility for this failure.

  • Shake hands or fist bump?

    John Lennon and Paul McCartney couldn't have known the danger in the words they wrote with the Beatles first major hit, "I Want to Hold Your Hand."

    "And please say to me, you'll let me hold your hand."

    In case you haven't heard, holding and shaking hands can be hazardous to your health.

  • A year gone by

     

    It's hard to believe it's been a year. And what a year it's been.

    I will admit it; I'm one of those who thought it wouldn't happen. We would never have enough money. People wouldn't want higher taxes to pay for it. But here we are, and it's all paid for.

    The new Taylor County Public Library opened its doors last March, after years and years of planning, saving and hoping.

    And on Tuesday, March 18, library staff members will host a party to celebrate the first birthday in their new building.
