Today's Opinions

  • A day in Frankfort

    As a teenager, I never asked for the opportunity. I sure hope others do and are quick to take advantage of it.

    I recently spent a day with our legislators in Frankfort. I learned a lot and can certainly appreciate the hard work that's put into making new laws to help protect Kentucky residents.

  • Library thanks police department

    Taylor County Public Library would like to recognize and sincerely thank the Campbellsville Police Department for the two-week session on safety and self-defense.

    Thanks to Andy Warren and the other officers who participated. We learned so much thanks to your excellent teaching technique and thought-provoking lessons.

    We also thank Taylor County Cooperative Extension Office for allowing us to use your lovely meeting room. Community partnerships truly help make our community great.

  • Keep public notices public

    If one Kentucky legislator has his way, many Kentuckians could lose access to public information related to their local governing bodies.

    State Sen. Chris McDaniel, who represents District 23 covering a portion of Kenton County, filed Senate Bill 101 last Friday seeking to eliminate the requirement of public notices to be published in the newspaper.

  • Stepping back to the 1950s

     

    "Welcome to the 1950s," he said, as he took my ticket and showed me to my seat.

    For the following two hours, the comedy that was the extremely popular "I Love Lucy" show came alive, complete with actors who were dead ringers for Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz.

    I went with a friend to see "I Love Lucy Live" on Saturday. The theater was set as what I would imagine a television stage looked like in the 1950s.

  • Taking a 'do over' on resolutions

    How are those New Year's resolutions working for you? If you've already reneged on them, don't panic. You aren't alone.

    According to a survey reported in Forbes magazine, 36 percent have broken their resolutions after one month, 54 percent have failed after 6 months and only 8 percent actually reach their New Year's goals.

  • School of a second chance

    British author and philosopher C.S. Lewis once observed, "Everyone thinks forgiveness is a lovely idea until he has something to forgive."

    I thought of Lewis' statement after the University of Louisville hired Bobby Petrino as its head football coach for the second time. Not being a Cardinal fan, forgiving the coach for his past mistakes was easy for me.

  • Church thanks supporters

    Merrimac Christian Church would like to thank everyone who donated to the church's air conditioner fund during a recent wagon ride on Milford Lowe's farm.

    Those who participated include the Minor family from Louisville and Florida, Sherman and Marilyn Dudley, Bobby Kirkland, Doug Martin, G.L. Wise, Mr. Feather, Jerry Cox, Tom Tucker, Paul Patton, Ernesteen Beatley, Eddie Rogers, Paul Shively, Edwin Stamp, Alton Gunter and special thanks to Debbie McNear for counting the money.
