Today's Opinions

  • Reader thanks Fire & Rescue

    I would like to thank Taylor County Fire & Rescue.

    When I was desperate and helpless on May 22, as I was awakened by the powerful microburst storm that was taking away part of my house. The roof and telephone were gone with it. I couldn't call anywhere for help, when they came to my door and rescued me. Thank you.

  • Reader enjoyed historic sports article

    I read Bobby Brockman's article on the COKES team of 50 years ago. That was a good year as were some of the earlier teams. Before TV in the 40s and 50s, they were the "only game in town" literally. This carried over till the days Willard Smith spoke about. Lots of good players came through the Cokes in those years.

    We have lost something with the passing of those teams. High school and college ball is a good replacement, but not quite the same. I am sure it is not an age thing!

  • Family thankful for prayers during recent surgery

    Kayden Clark and family would like to thank everyone for their prayers and support during Kayden's recent surgery to remove a brain tumor.

    A special thanks to everyone that donated to the Kayden Clark Medical Fund, and those who sold raffle tickets and organized the benefit auction.

    Thanks to Boils Realty for helping with the benefit auction.

    Thank you.

  • Coach thanks school district

    Recently, I was honored to represent Taylor County High School and the Kentucky High School Coaches Association as one of eight finalists for the National High School Baseball Coach of the Year Award. The event sponsored by the National High School Athletic Coaches Association honored coaches from across the country in 19 sport categories and was held in Jackson Hole, Wyo.

  • Harker says keep animals out of hot cars this summer

    Thank you for the article "Residents cautioned about children in hot cars," dated June 18, 2014. However, I wish the article had read, "Residents cautioned about all living creatures in hot cars."

    Every year, hundreds of animals (dogs, cats, etc.) suffer and die when their guardians make the mistake of leaving them in a parked car - even for "just a minute" - while they run an errand.

  • Proud of Taylor County

     

    Taylor Countians are pretty lucky.

    Our community is full of people who pitch in to help others, and most of the time for nothing monetary in return, only the satisfaction of making a difference in someone else's lives.

    There are three specific examples I can give you of this happening just in the past few days.

    First, a committee of people put together last Friday night's annual Relay for Life events to raise money to fight cancer.

  • Coming up short, but still fighting cancer

    I made a challenge for myself, and as badly as I hate to say it, I failed.

    As Taylor County's annual Relay for Life event kicked off on Friday evening, I had set a goal for myself to walk 100 laps around the high school track to raise money in memory of my friend and co-worker, James Roberts, who died of cancer last year.

    The money-raising efforts were supported by many of you, either in the form of a donated amount or in the form of a pledge made for each lap I walked.

  • A teacher who changed lives

    To that very first class of students who sat in his classroom more than 34 years ago, he said he was sorry.

    "I had no clue what I was doing," William Wallace Evans said.

    Yet every person who attended the retirement celebration for Taylor County High School's longest-serving agriculture teacher on May 31 will readily vouch for Evans' value as an educator and leader in the Taylor County community.
