Today's Opinions

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Coming home

     

    I can't believe it's been nearly 10 years since I graduated from college.

    I remember my college days well. Sleeping in because I had late classes on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Working a job at a store in town and being a writer for the campus newspaper. Being able to go home before dark on the days I didn't have to work.

    College years are full of carefree days when your most important job is figuring out what you want to do with your life.

  • Mayor responds to resident's questions

    Mr. William "Dubby" Ball makes an excellent point about the high commercial cost of earth-moving equipment and services. I do not dispute his estimates since that is his professional occupation. That's why the Campbellsville Water Co., along with the city of Campbellsville, recognize that many projects can be completed by city and water company employees with city-owned equipment.

  • Resident questions mayor on several issues

    I went to the Campbellsville City Council meeting on Oct. 6, 2014, to ask the mayor a question. He answered Mr. [Kenny] Anderson. The other gentleman got up to ask a question. He wouldn't answer him his question and asked if anyone else did. Before anyone could say anything, he adjourned the meeting and left everybody sitting there in shock. What a mayor.

    My question to the mayor is, how many easements on private property he is working on Pleasant Drive.

  • Green River Lake group thanks cleanup volunteers, supporters

    Thanks to the hard work of 362 volunteers and the support of The Friends of Green River lake volunteer group as well as local businesses, the 28th annual Green River Lake Volunteer Lakeshore Cleanup was again a huge success.

    On Saturday, Sept. 20, more than 230 bags of trash, more than 40 tires and various large pieces of plastic and metal were picked up from the shoreline. The hard work and effort put in by the numerous volunteers allowed for a cost savings to the government of more than $24,489.30.
