Today's Opinions

  • King fends off attacks from good old boys

    To the editor:
    Politics is certainly a topic that will spurn the interest of some yet a turnoff for others.   
    The term “good old boys” – its meaning to me indicates status quo, it is what it is, nothing will change and you have to be in or if you oppose, you’re labeled many terms.
    We’re currently witnessing in today’s political spectrum locally as well as nationally what it means to recline in cruise control as a good old boy while Kentuckians and other Americans suffer from this style of governing.

  • The roads less traveled

    Anderson County, I give up.
    Just when I think I know exactly where I’m going and what’s going to happen, you dump me on an impossible, toothpick-thin road with no cell phone service and threatening, moody thunderclouds.
    Last week, Editor Ben Carlson wrote about the city slicker behavior of his pets.
    Well, I’m here to tell you to confess I have something in common with his dachshund.
    I am a city slicker. I am unashamed to admit this, because it’s obviously true.  

  • King better choice than ‘know-it-all’ zeros”

    To the editor:
    State Rep. Kim King was an exceptional choice one year, eight months ago when she was elected. I know she will be even more exceptional this November when she runs for re-election.
    I personally think she has a done a great job during her first term. If given the chance she will do an even better job during her next term.
    On a personal note, I think the attacks and slenderizing against Mrs. King by some of our elected officials as well as some of our want-to-be’s was totally inappropriate and tremendously out of order.

  • Let’s keep Christ out of the public square

    To the editor:
    As a secularist, I’ve been interested in the recent letters discussing the existence or nonexistence of Jesus Christ and the veracity of the book that chronicles his life and teachings. However, I don’t intend to enter this particular debate.

  • ECC deal finalized, tax rate debate up next

    Column as I see ’em …
    For those wishing to overturn the school board’s decision to practically give away the old ECC building, forget about it.
    I’ve had numerous calls and conversations with people who were highly agitated that the board sold the building and 7.5 acres of land for $75,100, and held out hope that somehow someone would force them to reconsider.
    Of course nothing could make that happen, and the board closed the deal a couple of weeks ago without so much as a public peep.

  • Now is the time to start preparing for winter

    You’ve heard the saying of dipping your toes in the water? I think Mother Nature is doing that for us.
    We’ve had several chilly mornings in the upper 40s here on the farm and that’s enough to get us thinking of fall. Officially, it’s one month away. Time to get moving.
    I have several friends who think of me as a “pioneer woman.”
    I’m not. Just because I preserve what I grow, take my meat off the farm and heat with a wood stove, doesn’t mean I don’t spoil myself with the luxuries of the modern world.

  • How to tell truth from fiction during election season

    The election campaigns are getting into high gear.  
    How do you know what’s true when one side says something about the other?  It’s hard to know the truth about all such claims. Some outrageous claims may actually be true and something that sounds true can be false.  I’m not taking sides on any issue.

  • Hoping to serve God eternally

    To the editor:
    There is certainly a struggle among those of us promoting God’s ideals and beliefs while the opposing side vigorously fights and vows to keep his name out of view.
    It’s a great feeling to awaken each day to his splendor and if one day I am to be taken, I then hope that I can serve him eternally.
    May God Bless all for those who have been found and for those whom may be lost.
