Today's Opinions

  • System failing murder victim

    Brianna Brucker is charged with murdering her 3-month-old son, Charles Brett Hayden Jr. So why would she be released with out posting any bond?

    Brucker, 20, and her husband, Dale Brucker, 26, the boy’s stepfather, have been charged with her son’s death. Brianna Brucker was held in jail on a $100,000 cash bond, which was reduced last week to $50,000, unsecured.

    Dale Brucker has requested that his $125,000 bond be reduced, but that request has been denied.

  • Jones says right-to-work law is exactly what Kentucky needs

    Editor’s Note: Below is a guest editorial in response to a Dec. 25 editorial by Jason Bailey with the Kentucky Center for Economic Policy.

  • Here's a tip: Earn it!

    There's an old saying that goes, "You get what you pay for."

    In my opinion, the opposite holds true, especially when it comes to leaving tips at a restaurant; you pay for what you get.

  • Property tax tips from your PVA

    If you are like me, sometimes it can be a little overwhelming doing something that you may not do on a regular basis. For me, that "something" can be flying. I have flown a total of three times in my life, and the last time I flew was directly into Chicago. Talk about a fish out of water. Some folks feel the same way when it comes to the property tax system in Kentucky.

  • The wrong kind of attention

    If you’re offended by the words you are about to read, frankly, I don’t care.

    And I’m tired of everyone being offended about everything these days.

    Granted, there are some things about which we should be offended, but most of the time, when we hear about them on TV or the Internet, those who are offended are not very well informed. I would have said they are stupid, but, well, you know.

  • The good in a bad resume

    In the “What’s Trending” segment on The Today Show last Friday, July 24, Savannah Guthrie reported on an advertising executive who sent out two resumes. The first was your typical resume showing successes and accomplishments.

  • Chance, or a providential meeting?

     

    A young Marine opened the flap of the tent and called out the the several Marines inside, “Is there anyone in here from Kentucky?”

    The Marines had been slogging through the mud in Okinawa some 71 years ago.

    The Marine asking the question was Robert B. Oldham, and the person who spoke up, saying, “I’m from Kentucky,” was Bruce Heilman.
