Today's Opinions

  • Need real people in office

    I totally agree with Paul Harmon, Terry Keltner, Doug Mullins, David Ellis, Ricky Cox, Betty Amos, Miranda Nunn, Henry Berry and many others about the proposed Campbellsville City Council smoking ban. We need people like this in City Hall who can see the real world.

    I have known for several months that a few City Council members and a few do-good, know-it-all City employees were out to get Mayor Brenda Allen, but I didn't think I would live to see the day that she would side with these clowns against her friends and the people who elected her.

  • Holidays are a time of giving

    Someone once said: "The manner of giving is worth more than the gift."

    And around this community the hearts are always warmer than the dead-of-winter weather.

    The Holiday Helpline has ensured that nearly 400 families will have a better Christmas than they might have had otherwise. But the Helpline isn't taking credit. That credit belongs to the community - the one that is always so giving.

  • Montana tickets way too scarce

    Well, it's finally over. At long last, "The Big Event" is over, and we weren't there.

    "The Big Event," for those of you without young daughters, is ... well, was ... the Hannah Montana concert. And it was Wednesday night at Rupp Arena in Lexington.

    AND ... my daughter and I were not there.

    But let me tell you, it wasn't for a lack of trying.

  • End-of-the-Year review points to progress, accomplishments

    The holiday season provides a wonderful opportunity to reflect on the many good things that are happening at Elizabethtown Community and Technical College and to share this good news with residents throughout the region the college serves.

    ECTC President/CEO Dr. Thelma J. White reminds us from time to time that good things happen by choice, not by chance. We agree. As members of the college's Board of Directors, we are pleased to recognize White's leadership and the good work that has been accomplished this year by the college's faculty and staff.

  • Councilman opposes smoking ban

    My name is Paul Harmon. I'm currently a member of the Campbellsville City Council, and I am vigorously against imposing any smoking ban on private businesses. I'm against it because it isn't fair.

  • Christmas brings out the best in young writers

    Jolly Old St. Nick. St. Nicholas. Mr. Claus. Ho Ho. All are synonyms for Santa Claus, the man who brings magic to children all over the world each year at Christmastime.

    Each year when the Letters to Santa start arriving at the Central Kentucky News-Journal's office, we are touched by the poignancy and trust expressed in these most personal of sentiments to Santa.

  • We've all been elfed — in a sense

    I'd almost forgotten how special the holiday season could be. Work has a way of altering the path to Christmas.

    With grown children and the propensity to treat Christmas as if it's a tour through a department store, you forget the excitement that young children create.

  • We need all Mr. Basketballs in the KHSAA Hall of Fame

    I would like for everyone that reads this - and especially the basketball fan - to help us get every Kentucky Mr. Basketball inducted into the Kentucky High School Athletic Association Hall of Fame.

    The KHSAA Hall of Fame was started in 1988 and only 14 of the 53 former Mr. Basketball(s) have been inducted. There are currently 28 who are eligible and deserve to be inducted.
