Today's Opinions

  • Fulton County PVA supports Chad Shively

    This letter comes from far western Kentucky from the PVA in Fulton County, and is written to endorse Chad Shively for Taylor County PVA.

    Chad took office May 17, 2013, after serving 10 years in the Taylor County PVA office.

  • Former resident supports Chad Shively for PVA

    I have been a citizen of Taylor County all of my life until my husband's job required us to move last year. I have known Chad Shively, current PVA, for almost four years. During these years, Chad has become a mentor to my husband and I. I have watched him faithfully serve his community in more than one way.

    He serves his family, friends, church and church communities in Taylor County, as well as other states. I can list numerous reasons to keep Chad as PVA, but I will focus on just a few; character, reputation and qualifications are what I would like to focus on.

  • A real game changer

    “I can’t believe they lost,” I moaned after my favorite college football team went down in defeat. “Now they for sure won’t make it to the new four-team playoff system,” I continued to grumble.

    Sensing I was descending into a sports fanatic’s funk, my wife suggested we rent an uplifting movie, “Million Dollar Arm.”

  • Remember to thank a teacher

    It happened 19 years ago, but I can still remember how mad I was when we dropped my sister off at school on her first day of fifth grade. It was also my first day of pre-school, and I had waited so long that I couldn’t bear to wait a few more hours before stepping into my first classroom.

  • Grimes should admit she voted for Obama

     It’s kind of like Alison Lundergan Grimes has one-upped St. Peter. The Democratic challenger to U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell has been excoriated in the usually friendly urban media for denying Barack Obama four times before the cock crowed. Or at least before the Courier-Journal went to press.

  • Continue the fight against breast cancer

    Your bra is not giving you breast cancer.

    Your deodorant is not giving you breast cancer.

    Coffee is not giving you breast cancer.

    Mammograms are not giving you breast cancer.

    In a large percentage of cases, your genes aren't even giving you breast cancer.

    As with anything that escalates to the level of attention breast cancer has received, there are several myths about the disease. There are posts all over social media and even reports on mainstream media that do nothing but incite fear over incorrect information.

  • Grider family thanks community, supporters

    We, the family of Anthony "Tony" Grider, wish to express our most heartfelt thanks and gratitude to all of the amazing people who have been by our side physically or spiritually during Tony's battle to heal, his eventual journey home to our Father, and the continued support today.

  • Don't take food off the table

    It's been a while since I was a boy in school, but I still remember the fun we all had when the occasion called for a classroom party. Every year at Halloween, Christmas or Valentine's Day, or just about any reason to have a party, it seemed we did.
