Today's Opinions

  • Shelburne concert organizers, donors deserve praise

    It’s never easy to pull off something as difficult as a music concert. If it was easy, many people would be doing it.

    That, in itself, makes what Joani Clark did in bringing some Nashville music to Lawrenceburg Friday night so special.

    While a day of rain considerably hurt the turnout for Nashville Live on the Green, there is no doubt the event was a huge success.

  • Getting played

    In the photos, Minister Lavrov and Ambassador Kislyak are right there on center stage, yucking it up with President Trump in the Oval Office.

    It might be our White House, but Russia set the meeting parameters, Russia snapped all the photos, Russia did the publicity release, and Russia got our president to bar U.S. media from the event altogether.

    So much for America First.

  • Find your joy on a tractor, in a garden, with a neighbor

    What a beautiful weekend! The days have been long and the nights just flat gorgeous. I love watching the sun go down. Even after that is done, the waning moon still provided enough light to watch Mother Nature shine. The tree frogs provided the audio and the lightening bugs the visual. Heaven on Earth!

  • Make your salad dressings at home for healthy flavor

    I hope everyone had a nice Mother’s Day. I spent the day planting and gardening. My husband and I worked on stone edging for the flower beds. I love being outdoors, so for me it was relaxing and fun.

  • Hope — we all need it

    A week or so ago, I spoke at a fundraising event for the George Washington Carver Community Center in Crystal River, Florida, near where I live.

    The center is built on the footprint of the historic all-black George Washington Carver School.

    I spoke to them about hope.

    On Thursday, I also spoke about hope to some ladies at a local Presbyterian church.

    Hope is one of my favorite topics, if not my very favorite. Without hope, I would shrivel and die.

    I suspect you would, too.

  • Hiprocrisy over Foster Care

    In an op-ed dated May 2, Kentucky Attorney General Andy Beshear demonstrated both breathtaking hypocrisy and a fundamental lack of comprehension of Kentucky law. Beshear suggests that the Bevin administration should stop defending the Commonwealth in court against a judgment that, unless overturned, will cost Kentucky tens of millions of dollars not appropriated in the current budget.

  • Angels in disguise

    Even in the final scene, I am not at home.

    I am alone in a friend’s basement, pulling my graduation gown over my head. The game room is bright with lights as I stare into a wall of beer-themed mirrors, the contents of my makeup bag rolling across their pool table as I line my eyes with a kohl pencil.

    My friend’s dad walks in, surprised, and jokes, “Hey kiddo. You moving in?”

  • Keep your eyes on the road buddy!

    You see ads on TV all the time about safe driving.

    Over the last few years, I have met countless people that are not paying attention to their driving. How do I know this? They are on my side of the road!

    It happens too often. In fact it happened Friday afternoon.
