Today's Opinions

  • There is help for those in foreclosure

    In response to the Dec. 27 front-page article concerning home foreclosures, Sunset Beach Properties is trying very hard to work directly with local people and local banks to buy property before it goes into the foreclosure process.

    We can not only pay off the note but provide a little financial aid and manpower assistance to move that family as well as provide money for the immediate future. We also help in the form of not ruining one's credit.

  • Get your heart in the right place

    Jesus told me he delayed his second coming because most people's hearts ain't right. Isaiah 48:9 says "For the sake of My name, I delay My wrath, and for My praise I restrain it for you, in order not to cut you off."

  • Why not 21? The renewed debate over underage drinking

    Renewed public discourse about the advisability of lowering the legal drinking age, largely fueled by former Middlebury College President John M. McCardell Jr., has opened a different front in the war on substance use and abuse among young people.

    While some have tired of the now decades-old debate, a fresh round of honest discussion by informed public policy-makers and pundits can only inure to the benefit of those with the most at stake.

  • Help the Girl Scouts by eating

    Ask anyone what comes to mind when they hear the words "Girl Scouts" and they're likely to say: "cookies."

    And they'd be right.

    But Girl Scouts are much more than just cookies. Just ask one.

    For nearly 100 years, Girl Scouting has helped to build girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place.

    According to the organization's Web site, Girl Scouting is the world's leading organization dedicated solely to girls where, in an accepting and nurturing environment, young ladies build character and skills for success in the real world.

  • It's time to develop all of Kentucky to its potential

    In response to (The) Courier Journal's Dec. 17 trashing Interstate 66 and Kentucky as a whole ...

    The first time I ever heard of the "Road to Nowhere" was when Happy Chandler, running for governor in 1953, called Gov. Lawrence Wetherby's proposed Kentucky Turnpike from Louisville to Elizabethtown, the "Road that starts nowhere and ends nowhere." Today, what was the Kentucky Turnpike is now part of I-65, one of the busiest roads in Kentucky.

  • It was indeed a Classic

    Thirteen may be an unlucky number for some, but for Campbellsville High, which hosted its 13th basketball tournament during the holiday break, it was another great run of basketball entertainment.

    Sixteen teams, three days, 24 games, 42 hours of basketball.

    The tournament committee led by Campbellsville High Coach Tim Davis, Athletics Director Jim Hardy and a host of volunteers did an excellent job of moving things along. Thirteen years is a good foundation for success.

  • An unhealthy look at smoking ban

    I don't smoke. I never have, and the fact that when I pass by someone who is smoking I suffer a mild asthmatic reaction means I never will. Also, there's that whole cancer thing. That's kind of a bummer.

    I'm by no means a healthy man. I eat only fatty foods and steer clear of fruits and vegetables - except for strawberry pies and baked potatoes loaded with butter, sour cream and more butter.

  • Male chivalry: a dying breed

    Recently I was driving through a nearby community on my way to my sister's house. I stopped at a store, got out and heard a hissing noise. I had a slit on the side of my tire.

    I immediately got back in my car and pulled across the street to a tire store. By then my tire was almost flat.

    I got out of my van with my two young boys and a man came outside to ask me if I needed something. I explained to him about my tire and that I would need a replacement.
