Today's Opinions

  • Billboards new weapons of choice in holy war

    Column as I see ’em …
    The holy war that has been waged first on the sidelines of local football games and subsequently in the editorial section of this newspaper apparently has plenty of company.
    Just in the past month, high school football players were told their coach couldn’t lead them in prayer (although in actuality he really wasn’t), followed by the school board’s decision to pray, but only before it actually opens its meetings.

  • Pipeline: Pipeline developers respectful guests, good stewards of land

    By Rob Hawksworth
    The Bluegrass Pipeline team has begun negotiating easements with landowners. This is a critical step in finalizing the route for this important piece of American energy infrastructure. Prior to commencing these negotiations, Bluegrass Pipeline sent a letter to the affected landowners that addressed a number of issues including the important landowner question “how does this benefit me?”

  • Pipeline: Landowners should think, consult lawyer before granting easement

    By Terry Geoghegan
    and Tom FitzGerald
    Landowners contacted by the Bluegrass Pipeline Partners LLC, the Williams Company or one of their representatives about selling an easement for the construction of a 24-inch pressurized natural gas liquids pipeline across their property rightfully have questions about whether granting such an easement is in their interest.

  • How does school district monitor Internet use of students, teachers?

    You sign your name in blood on the Internet.
    Not literally, because that’d be gross and virtually impossible.
    But no other metaphor, in my opinion, gives the right weight of gravitas when it comes to discussing the permanent nature of representing yourself on the Internet.
    It’s an unconscious blood oath that you sign with the entire online world, that everyone you write and post will exist for infinity.

  • Repo’d property shouldn’t be among top taxpayers

    Column as I see ’em …
    The chart attached to this column is both interesting and sad.
    Interesting in that it shows just how much Wild Turkey currently pays in property taxes after investing over $100 million in our fair county during the past four years.
    What’s sad is the bottom half of the list because it points out just how poorly Anderson County has done in attracting more taxpaying behemoths like Wild Turkey.

  • Liberals trying to ‘convert’ us, our children

    Regarding the ACLU — and those collaborators who work with it to strip Kentucky of its Christian identity — it’s worth remembering that “love your enemies” doesn’t mean “pretend you haven’t any.”
    When liberals let on like they’ll be satisfied if only we agree to their latest “small” and “fair” demand, they are lying. Always.

  • So-called ‘atheist’ letter writer should practice what he preaches

    To the editor:
    I read Mr. Jerry Millburn’s guest column (Hypocrites on school board know they’re wrong) in last week’s paper and would like to share some observations.

  • Moved your iris, lilies and other perennials yet? Better get busy

    One of my most favorite things about the farm is the view that I have at sunset. The air has cooled to a pleasant degree and watching the sun send up its last horrah fills the sky with ribbons of color to rival any masterpiece.
    The dogs love to run and romp in the yard, taking turns to come say hello and get a good scratching. It clears my mind of the day’s events and helps me appreciate all that I have.
