Opinion

  • We have a clear choice for life in the races for governor, attorney general and state auditor in the upcoming election.

    Gov. Ernie Fletcher has not only spoken for life throughout his career as a politician, he has voted for innocent life on every occasion presented to him. Steve Beshear has been the exact opposite, not only throughout his political career, but he proudly proclaims his support of abortion.

  • Mr. Leachman is wrong about his slam regarding the Department of Veterans Affairs (News-Journal, Monday, Oct. 15).

    As a retired VA administrator, I can vouch that the goal of the VA is to provide the highest quality healthcare. While it is sad that we do lose some veterans, what hospital does not?

  • In a few weeks, the commonwealth of Kentucky will be hosting elections. As usual, we listen to all the criticism one candidate has for another. Most of this is half-truths. Anything goes that makes the other candidate look bad.

    For the past term, we have had nothing but controversy coming out of Frankfort. This governor was elected on the promise to cleanup Frankfort. All we have had is more mudslinging and waste of taxpayer dollars. This governor has showed no respect for our laws and did pretty much what he wanted, abusing the office he swore to uphold.

  • On Thursday night, Oct. 12, the Taylor County High School volleyball team won its third consecutive District tournament title and in so doing became the first TCHS team to be undefeated in both regular and post-season play in the same year.

    Congrats to the Lady Cardinals for an impressive accomplishment!

  • It was Saturday night/Sunday morning a little after 1 a.m. Two female friends and myself had stopped on the side of the road in front of Lowe's to pick up a sack of chips and a box of cigarettes that had fallen off the top of my friend's vehicle.

    I saw a cop car in front of me in the parking lot. As I drove off, he followed in behind me and pulled me over as soon as I turned onto Broadway. I pull over and I saw another police car coming to assist. As soon as the officer exited his car, he asked to see my hands. He walked up and said my license plate was not working.

  • When my kids are fighting, they will sometimes try to divert my attention from the real issue at hand by pointing at a sibling in an accusatory tone, "Yeah, but he broke my toy last week and then he made a face at you behind your back."

    Judging from the latest television commercials, it would appear as if our gubernatorial candidates have taken a lesson from my children.
