Today's Opinions

  • Looking for everyday heroes

    I am gathering nominations for a follow-up to my "Kentucky's Everyday Heroes" book, released earlier this year.

    As in the first project, I'm looking for Kentuckians who "have successfully overcome extreme personal challenges and/or have given of themselves to others in an exemplary fashion - people who daily, and modestly, live their lives in what might be termed an heroic way."

    Considered will be living persons from all geographical regions of the state, and ones who may be known only to the people they have positively influenced in their own locales.

  • If you plan to have a say ... be there

    So, are you registered to vote? If not, you'd better be hustling down to the courthouse. You've got until 4:30 today to register or you won't be able to vote on May 20.

    And, believe us, there are plenty of reasons to vote.

    Whether it's the Presidential race you're interested in, the U.S. Representative or Senator's races, the State Representative's race, or the alcohol-by-the-drink issue, it's time to make your opinion known.

    The Democratic Presidential Primary is a hot-button topic no matter who you talk to. Even Republicans have an opinion on that race.

  • Just what is a delegate anyway?

    The race between Senators Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama to become the Presidential nominee of the Democratic Party may not be settled until the Democratic National Convention in August.

  • Every minute has a heart attack in it

    This world is full of bad things. Ongoing medical epidemics such as AIDS and cancer are growing at a rapid pace. Hope that a cure can be found is abundant but still absent, or not yet known. Networks, such as CNN and Fox News, bring us the late breaking stories and feed pessimists the ammunition they need to survive.

    From large to small, the world's problems affect us all, even in small town Kentucky where economic downturn leads us to cling to religion and guns.

  • Make sure prom memories are good ones

    Teen, prom is such an exciting time in your life. Whether this is your first prom or your last, it will surely be a memorable experience; one to cherish for years to come.

    Whether you are going with a date, a friend or alone, you will have many choices to make about the evening's events. Who you will ride with, who will drive, where to eat, what to wear, etc...

    You will also have an even larger choice to make. Will you go to a party or to the breakfast? Will you drink? Are the people going with you going to do the same?

  • Need sidewalks on North Central

    After reading the article about the need for a sidewalk on North Central leading to Miller Park, we wholeheartedly agree.

    We reside on Saloma Road and travel that route daily, observing the hazardous conditions for both pedestrians and motorists. We believe that if a survey could be taken to compare the amount of people walking to Miller Park by means of Lebanon Avenue and North Central, we feel that a sidewalk would be warranted in both places.

    All citizens of Campbellsville have a need; tragedy should not be the trigger to make it happen.

  • Is there anybody out there?

    "Is there anybody out there?" Just as Pink Floyd wanted to know in its 1979 album, "The Wall," so do we.

    One of our most popular Web site features is back and we need your help to get it up and running again.

    Whether it's a front-page story, a sports story, an editorial piece or a wedding, readers once again have an opportunity to post comments about a story. Tell us if you liked it - or if you didn't. By doing that, a dialog can be opened between residents about issues and events of importance to our community.

  • A new wrinkle on aging

    It's Monday, April 14, 2008. On this date 60 years ago, Momma lay down her washboard long enough to give birth to a future keyboarder.

    Apparently, a lot of other mommas across America were doing the same thing. They say some 330 of us Baby Boomers turn 60 every hour.

    You may not realize how close some of us came to not being here at all.

    A.C. Kinsey came out with a book, "Sexual Behavior in the Human Male" in 1948. Some days I've wished it had been published in 1947, and Momma had gotten hold of a copy.
