Today's Opinions

  • Hamburger, ground beef aren’t same

    Is there a difference between hamburger and ground beef? The answer is yes but it’s not a big difference.
    Ground beef must be made of trimmings that contain the targeted fat percentage. For example, if a package is labeled 80 percent lean/20 percent fat ground beef, then the beef trimmings that the ground beef is made from must contain those percentages. On the other hand, hamburger may be made of beef fat added to the meat block to create the desired fat percentage.

  • $1M healthcare question

    Ben, the man pictured directly above me on this page, recently handed me a news article about $1 million.
    Turns out that during a recent school board meeting in Woodford County, the Woodford County school board learned they could face $1 million in Affordable Care Act or Obamacare penalties if it failed to offer adequate health insurance to those full-time employees working 30 hours a week.

  • Medicaid flourishing here, not Obamacare

    Uh oh. That was my takeaway after watching Gov. Steve Beshear’s appearance Sunday on “Meet the Press.”
    Paraded out by Democrats looking for something, anything positive to say about Obamacare, Beshear was supposed to trumpet how well Kentucky has done signing up people for the controversial health tax (yes, I said tax, not law, and point to the Supreme Court decision to back it up).
    Beshear did an admirable job spouting that there have been roughly 25,000 sign-ups and heralding the state’s ability to create a website that actually works.

  • Know the facts before starting gluten-free diet

    Recent publicity about celiac disease and the gluten-free diet has led to misconceptions about gluten and its role in weight loss.
    As a consequence, many individuals without gluten intolerance are following a gluten-free diet.

  • Garden provides natural help for ragweed sniffles

    We are such creatures of habit. We know what we like and this time of year: chili.
    Chili with meat or beans, or both. Chili with spaghetti or macaroni, or both. Chili with cheese or onions, or both. When it gets chilly outside, we make chili inside. Casseroles or Crock-Pot soups come next.

  • Cops & Rodders a great event

    To the editor:
    The annual Cops & Rodders 2 2013 Car Show to benefit the Kentucky Sheriffs’ Boys & Girls Ranch and the Anderson D.A.R.E. program’s Shop With a Cop with Sheriff Troy Young hosting the event was a huge success.

  • Hope remains for local atheist

    To the editor:
    This is in response to the guest column written by Jerry Milburn that appeared two weeks ago.
    Sir, with all due respect, you do err. You see, God had no intentions to dismiss his holy name from the nation, public or any other document set forth by those who refused to trust in him. The Bible didn’t get this far for nothing. Matthew10:33: “But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.”
