Today's Opinions

  • Readers ask voters to support Chad Shively

    In a time when our world seems to be falling apart and our government is straying from God, elections become very important to our society.
    In the 2014 primary, many government offices are being contested. One of those offices is the Taylor County property valuation administrator position.

  • Take pride in Kentucky Derby

    This is a special week to be a Kentuckian. If we didn't get enough attention for our college basketball teams during the recent NCAA tournament, now comes an even bigger stage, another way to shine the spotlight on the Bluegrass State.

  • Taylor County — a great place to live

     

    The giggles were contagious.

    As I waited for the event to start, I saw the children's excitement grow. It was palpable. They had their homemade, home-decorated buckets in tow, ready to hear the adults tell them "go."

  • Find happiness in the small things

    "Daddy! Daddy! Look what I got," the little girl shouted with glee.

    Every child was a winner at The Kid SpOt Center's second annual autism awareness event at Kid Wise Amusement on April 16. When their name was drawn for a door prize, the children rushed to the prize table to choose among several gift baskets overflowing with an assortment of educational toys, craft kits and candy.

  • He's alive!

    Years ago when our son, Dave Jr., was about 7 or 8 years, he awoke early one Easter morning, but I was awake, and he immediately began singing the chorus of the Don Francisco song, "He's Alive."

    "He's alive, yes he's alive, yes he's alive and I'm forgiven," Dave sang as he hopped out of bed.

    At first, before I could understand what he was singing, I thought something was wrong with him; maybe he was having a bad dream or was sick and crying for help.

  • Reader supports Cave for PVA

    It is my pleasure to endorse Bernie Cave for Property Valuation Administrator of Taylor County. He is a fine citizen of this county and has served in several offices.

    Bernie worked for the Taylor County Conservation District for about 14 years. He also served with me on the Taylor County School Board for about 13 years.

  • 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.
