Today's Opinions

  • To heck with good grammar

    "Not even a school teacher notices bad grammar in a compliment."

    After lunch the other day with my husband, I opened a fortune cookie with that message inside. And, for some reason, that message kept popping back to mind throughout the rest of the day.

    Here at the News-Journal, we regularly receive complaints that run the gamut between not enough coverage all the way to too much of it. But in the past couple of weeks, several readers have taken the time to send us compliments.

    Maybe that's why the fortune cookie message stuck in my mind.

  • Should this be the end of American Idol?

    I'm disappointed. I used to love the show and set my schedule around it. I watched every Tuesday and Wednesday, without fail. There's so much about American Idol I love.

    It gives the average person a chance at stardom. It makes "Crystal Bowersox" a household name.

    It makes Andrew Garcia's interpretation of "Straight Up" a well-Googled phrase and a YouTube phenomenon.

    For those like me who love ... love ... music, this show is like going into a candy store with no possibility of diabetic shock.

    But, as I said, I'm disappointed.

  • UK fan takes offense

    In response to [Casey County News Staff Writer] Larry Rowell's guest editorial column in the Thursday edition of the News-Journal "Cal's Cats score, but not in the classroom," I would like to make the following comments.

  • Head Start thanks

    Taylor County Head Start had its end of celebration on June 4 at Veterans Memorial Park. On behalf of the children and families and staff, we would like to thank the following community businesses for their continued support:

  • Texting in an ambulance is wrong

    My daughter was in the April 18 crash at KY 210 and KY 744. I'm writing because I want to be sure that this ambulance driver never does this again.

    My daughter's boyfriend rode in the front of the ambulance. He saw the ambulance driver texting while driving them to the hospital in the middle of the night.

    Not only did that put our children's lives at risk again, it put the ambulance people and any drivers on the road at risk, considering how fast they usually travel.

  • Goodbye, Campbellsville

    Six years ago I moved my family to Campbellsville. Our Bishop had appointed me to serve as the pastor of First United Methodist Church. At that time my wife Debbie and I had two children, Ariel and Alexander. Ariel was ready for seventh grade and Alexander had not learned to walk yet.

  • Cal's Cats score, but not in classroom

    The University of Kentucky's 4-year, $32 million dollar man hired to rejuvenate the men's basketball program has succeeded in satisfying the Big Blue Nation's desire to be the best in the nation - or at least as close as West Virginia let them get to the top.

    No one can argue that Coach Cal hasn't restored the shine and luster to what the Cats do on the court.

    But someone, preferably Athletic Director Mitch Barnhart, should at least raise an eyebrow at how Cal's Cats are performing in the hallowed halls of academics at UK.
