Today's Opinions

  • Protect innocent life

    Feb. 7, 2008 was a glorious day in the history of the General Assembly of the state of Kentucky. On that date, the Republican-controlled Senate passed a comprehensive abortion bill, SB 40, by a vote of 34-4. After passage, the bill was sent to the Democratic controlled House of Representatives.

  • A helping hand from North Carolina

    "If I had a hammer

    "I'd hammer in the morning

    "I'd hammer in the evening

    "All over this land ..."

    -From a song by Lee Hays and Pete Seeger

    It really is true. What goes around comes around. Do good things for others and it'll come back to you.

    Last week, there were about 100 people from North Carolina in Campbellsville doing good things. Perhaps it was a touch of payback for all the good things our community has done for others.

  • Wanna bet gambling comes up again?

    Casino gambling, that divisive phrase that has been floating around since Steve Beshear announced his candidacy for governor, is dead.

    The obituary appeared in statewide papers on Friday.

    Not even a landslide Democratic governor could leverage the necessary support out of a Democrat-controlled House to get it to a floor vote.

    I'm disappointed.

  • Doctor shoppers are multiplying

    On Saturday, March 22, 2008, a patient called my office complaining of a toothache. The name sounded familiar and alarming. My records indicated that I last saw this individual in 1999. After several calls to area pharmacies, he was identified as a "doctor shopper" at that time.

    "Doctor shopping" refers to the practice of a patient requesting care from multiple practitioners, often simultaneously, without making efforts to coordinate care or informing the practitioner of the multiple caregivers.

  • Needs help with school project

  • Troops instrumental in success of surge

    I wanted to write and thank the community of Campbellsville for its support of our nation's sons and daughters serving in Iraq, Afghanistan and around the world. Campbellsville and Campbellsville University hold a special place in my life.

    I graduated from Campbellsville University in 1984 and have served as an Army chaplain for the past 16 years. I grew up in Hodgenville and still have family living there. My daughter is currently a freshman at CU.

  • Tigers take us on a fun ride

    Winding up an improbable run at a national title on Monday, the Campbellsville University Tigers left Kansas City with their heads held high.

    After all, the Tigers went farther than any other Campbellsville University basketball team in history - to the semifinals of the national championship tournament.

    Coach Keith Adkins said there will still be smiles on their faces.

  • Separation crashes the party

    They've been up to their elbows in Jell-O together. They've played musical chairs together. They've shared pizza together. And they've signed each other's T-shirts. The only difference was the color pen they used: red or purple.

    For the past 21 years, Project Graduation has been the one time our local high school students get together for a combined celebration. On this one special night, all the rivalries of the past four years seemed to take a back seat to fun.
