Today's Opinions

  • Making Campbellsville proud

     

    "Hey, that's J.B. Holmes from Campbellsville!"

    Those words were heard more often than you might think at the PGA Championship at Valhalla Golf Club on Tuesday.

    For anyone from Campbellsville, it might not seem like a big deal. After all, it's just J.B., or as most folks around town know him, John. But when you consider that he's playing on a worldwide stage, it's quite impressive that so many people are rooting for him.

  • Saying goodbye to summer

     

    I still remember it - the excitement of the first day of school.

    My school supplies were ready. I had carefully picked out a backpack, pencils, notebooks and markers.

    I loved milk breaks, reading and playground time. It was always nice to be in a homeroom with someone I knew, but I also enjoyed meeting new friends.

  • Sharing the stories

     

    As a reporter, there are some stories you just don't want to write.

    Bad stuff happens, and it's our job to report it. But that doesn't mean it's fun and we enjoy it.

    I've heard people question why we have published such and such story. They've also asked why those stories have to be printed on the front page.

  • Homeless shelter thanks supporters

    Green River Ministries homeless shelter board members wish to thank the 27 men and women who came to Campbellsville Country Club to play in the golf scramble.

  • Reader praises reporter's work

    I write to commend Miss Calen McKinney for her coverage of important matters to readers of the Central Kentucky News-Journal.

    Her front-page article about Campbellsville University in the July 23 issue is an illustration of her expert journalism. Miss Calen did not report "hearsay" information, but instead did much research in order for readers to be better informed about a major issue facing all of us in Taylor County and elsewhere.

  • Mayor answers criticism by former mayor

    I appreciate Brenda Allen raising the issue of the city's surplus funds or, lack thereof, when I took office in January 2011.

    My statements at the [Campbellsville/Taylor County] Chamber [of Commerce] luncheon were accurate. The city had no reserves when I took office in January 2011.

  • The good ol' days

    Twenty-five years. It's hard to believe, and, as I look back, it just doesn't seem like it's been that long. Really, it doesn't even feel like I should be much older than 25, and it sure doesn't seem like I should be 25 years removed from my high school graduation.

  • Up, up and away

     

    Balloonist's Prayer

    "The winds have welcomed you with softness.

    The sun has blessed you with his warm hands.

    You have flown so high and so well,

    That God has joined you in laughter,

    And he has set you gently back again,

    Into the loving arms of Mother Earth."
