Today's Opinions

  • Love of reading hard to tap

    I simply couldn't turn the pages fast enough. It's not often that I find a book like that. But when I do, look out. I'll carry it with me and read a page here and a page there until I am finished.

    Crime mysteries are the best. For Jeffery Deaver fans, Lincoln Rhyme is my hero.

    But I remember a time when Laura Ingalls Wilder, Nancy Drew and Anne Shirley were my heroes. I spent many a night hidden under my covers with a flashlight, reading of long winters on the prairie, after-school undercover surveillance and an orphan's life in Avonlea.

  • We need to be worrying about more than smoking

    This letter is in response to Betty Amos' letter to the editor discussing the smoking ban. I must first say that I am in absolute agreement with her and I appreciate her opinion and concern.

    It seems to me that this town could use a few more persons with the same views as Amos. I'm sure Amos deals with a lot of children and adolescents with drug abuse problems or other issues. I've heard of her and her work, and I commend her for the progress she has made for many people in this community.

  • A potpourri of opinion

    The last two letters from Amy Williams and Betty Amos really hit the nail on the head.

    Our lovely little town has a terrible administration. One got her job with a flip of the coin. Besides that, [Judge/Executive] Eddie Rogers is following the path of [former judge/executive] Paul Patton.

    I am a Democrat and so is Rogers. I am really disappointed in him.

    Now they have us in a debt, our children and their children with a dog walk, skateboard park and a jail. Millions of dollars. And now no smoking.

  • TV viewing is a remote possibility

    I remember the date and time as if it were yesterday - a significant admission from someone who has a hard time remembering yesterday.

    I rushed home from work on that Friday a week ago to catch some of the post-Thanksgiving football games. And there were some good ones.

  • Sen. Bunning can help rural Americans with rising health care costs

    Kentucky Sen. Jim Bunning has an opportunity to help millions of older Americans in our state and throughout the nation.

    As a member of the powerful Senate Finance Committee, he can play a leading role in relaxing unreasonable asset limits that restrict access to Medicare's low-income programs. These low-income program improvements would be especially helpful in states with significant rural populations like Kentucky.

  • Smoke-free restaurants should be totally smoke free

    I applaud Campbellsville in its efforts to wrestle with the smoke-free restaurant ordinance.

    As Campbellsville addresses this important issue, I would certainly encourage it not to come short by passing anything short of a 100 percent smoke-free restaurant ordinance. This would offer both restaurant workers and patrons access to clean air.

    Even in restaurants with separate ventilated smoking areas, restaurant employees are exposed to high levels of second-hand smoke as they have to service both smoking and non-smoking areas.

  • Cat Hollow decision was the right one

    In response to your online article (Nov. 15, 2007) on the dispute over keeping Cat Hollow Road open, it was good to see that the majority of the magistrates voted for the good of Kentucky and the area.

    My ancestors are from that area and I've studied the maps. It is my hope to one day own property back there and build a home. Magistrates do well to consider the future of an area and not just a whim of one or two folks.

  • Mad at cable companies

    Many football fans in our state already know that big cable companies are taking advantage of consumers and preventing them from watching their favorite football teams.
