Today's Opinions

  • I did not retire

    No, I did not retire. No, I am not ill! Financial corners were cut and I was cornered.

    There is no way I would have given up my position at Campbellsville High School of my own accord. I think the world knows how I feel about CHS. It was a wonderful 41 years.

  • It's good to be safe ... not sorry

    Just two weeks ago in this space, we opined about how property values in Kentucky were behind the nation - not only when it comes to increasing, but also when it comes to falling prices.

  • Help to keep our kids safe

    After two months of summer fun, it's time to get back to work. Yes, it's that time of year again - time for homework, research papers, tests, after-school activities, ball games and more.

    But it's also time for residents to be more careful in their daily travels.

    Classes begin today for students at Taylor County Schools and on Wednesday for Campbellsville and Kentucky Christian schools.

  • Goodbye Campbellsville ... and thanks

    Those of you who know me know that I'm a very proud Georgian and that I like to say that I'm southern by birth and bulldog by God's grace.

    However, I must confess that I have come to love the Bluegrass state. Though I will never root for a blue nation sports team, I nonetheless find the state and people to be quite pleasant and enjoyable.

    My wife and I have lived in Campbellsville for about six years in two different stints and we love the community. Taylor Countians, for the most part, are good, God-fearing, generous and friendly people.

  • Gossip simply has no purpose

    Our state has made a name for itself on more than one occasion. Kentucky is known for its family farms, its horses, its hospitality and more. However, there are several other issues that aren't quite as appealing.

    We lead the nation in the number of ATV deaths, prisoner growth and poor dental care. And, now, we're apparently leading many other, much larger cities in the amount of online gossip we participate in.

    Haven't we got anything better to do with our time?

  • Lord, help us keep our mouths shut

    Big, bold letters stated, "Lord help me this day to keep my big mouth shut." A family member had given a T-shirt printed with those words to my favorite aunt in the late 1970s.

    Aunt Debbie was known for speaking her opinion in those days. Today, she's still opinionated, but certainly softer spoken.

    I'm guessing it would be fair to say that most of us have been guilty at some point in our lives of speaking a little too freely. I've confessed the sin of the tongue - unfortunately more than once - in the confessional booth.

  • It's time teens have their say

    In just a few weeks, a group of energetic Campbellsville and Taylor County high school students will give Central Kentucky News-Journal readers a peek into the world of today's teenagers.

    The News-Journal's Teen Editorial Board will soon begin work on its fifth consecutive year of "Insight," a monthly teen page.

    Staff members at the News-Journal try to cover as much of our community as we can and we constantly ask for story ideas and information from our readers to help broaden our perspective. But we think the teen view would best be represented by teens themselves.
