Today's Opinions

  • Green River Ministries thanks supporters

    Green River Ministries' staff and board members would like to thank all the people who came out to eat bean soup and chili at First United Methodist Church.

    Also we want to thank Wendy's, Lee's, Colton's Steak House & Grill, Chandler's Office Supply, Pioneer Catering, First United Methodist Church, Campbellsville University, Campbellsville/Taylor County Chamber of Commerce, Hardee's, Mike Januski CPA firm, CVS Pharmacy, Pleasant Hill Baptist Church, Greater Campbellsville United and Creek Side Restaurant for their donations.

  • New truck limits would weigh heavily on state's roads

    On Feb. 4, the Kentucky Senate passed a bill that would allow heavier semi-trailer trucks hauling poultry, livestock and agricultural products to travel on all state and local roads, raising the maximum weight from 80,000 pounds to 88,000 pounds.

  • Looking back on the Olympic games

    The curtain has fallen on the games of the 22nd winter Olympiad. The host country, Russia, was the overall winner with 33 total medals, while the United States finished with 28 total medals. But in my opinion, we, the viewers, also came away with a win because we were given a couple of weeks of entertainment like no other on TV.

  • Cattlemen's group thanks supporters

    The Taylor County Cattlemen's Association would like to thank Forcht Bank, Green River Fence and Limestone Farm Lawn Worksite for sponsoring their annual meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 4.

  • 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.
