Today's Opinions

  • Phones show lack of attention, respect from children

    As I sat in McDonald's last week, in one of the seemingly rare moments I have that's not in full-on rush mode, I noticed an old couple eating lunch with what was presumably their grandson at the next table down from me.

    The kid was maybe 8 or 9 years old, undoubtedly off from yet another day of school.

    This is where I would normally describe him in greater detail, but the only way I would have been of any help in that department was if he had committed a crime and was in a lineup.

  • Slow down to smooth out the wrinkles

    I've been told that it ended with the Reagan administration. It could have been cabin fever or just my horrible habit of leaving clothes in the dryer to re-wrinkle, but this week, I ironed my clothes. And I'm feeling much better because of it.

  • Cities, counties need local control through local option

    Cities and counties, small and large, across Kentucky have big dreams for their communities - ideas that are transformative and can have lasting impact for generations.

    Bardstown wants to build a YMCA to help keep its residents healthy. Eastern Kentucky communities dream of transforming the region into a destination attracting hunters, anglers, campers and adventure tourists. Louisville hopes to build a 100-mile hiking and biking path across the city - the type of amenity that attracts young people and entrepreneurs who start businesses and grow the state's economy.

  • Mother thankful for childcare

    I think when you find a blessing in life, it is important to share your blessing.

    Eighteen months ago, my family welcomed the addition of our son. I am sure every working mother can relate to the joy of such an arrival. She can equally relate to the stress and worry encountered when maternity leave ends and one must return to the daily grind. Thankfully, God directed my path to the staff of A Child's Workplace.

  • 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.

  • CKNJ rules of politics

    Every game has its rules, and politics are no different.

    Here at the CKNJ, we have our own rules that we follow when it comes to politics and our coverage of political events. They are in place to help us be as fair as possible to each candidate.

    When the political season rolls around, candidates begin by making an announcement of their intention to seek office. We welcome any candidate to do this, and we will publish one notice from each person declaring their candidacy.
