Today's Opinions

  • Bearcats are proven heroes, winners

    To the editor:
    As I watched the 5A championship game online and watched the Bearcats fight for every yard, the amazing thing was that through out the entire game the announcers commended Anderson County for their attitude.
    At half time, they reminded the watchers and listeners that Anderson would not give up; that Coach Mark Peach would come out with a game plan; that the players  
    reflected their coach’s attitude in a positive way.

  • Students ignite journalism fire

    To be a journalist is like being on fire.  
    Extinguish one flame — deadlines, disgruntled readers or writer’s block — and more start to smolder in its place.
    I’ve toured a prison and endured its pat-down policy, been essentially banned from a senior center, and had my student newspaper pulled from the racks for publishing a story about an Ecstasy drug bust on campus.
    So it’s nice to remind myself sometimes why I voluntarily chose this profession.
    All it took was another newspaper.

  • Time for Gov. Beshear to reign in health cabal

    Column as I see ’em …
    Now that he has been comfortably re-elected, perhaps Gov. Beshear will take a moment and throw a rope around those in his health cabinet who can’t seem to keep their meddling noses out of Anderson County’s business.
    Our 12-person health board, which consists of the county’s CEO and members with more degrees than a thermometer is perfectly capable (these days, at least) of making decisions without interference from state health officials.

  • Turner PTO offers thanks for Titan Fest

    To the editor:
    The PTO of Robert B. Turner would like to thank everyone who made this year’s Titan Fest such a wonderful success.
    We couldn’t have done it without the teachers, parents and other volunteers who gave so generously of their time  and resources.
    We would especially like to recognize those individuals and businesses who donated items for the auction and basket raffle.
    We also want to acknowledge the high school students who gave up their Friday night to bring their energy and enthusiasm to the games.

  • Your attendance is requested

    I’m an expert in attending meetings.
    And you should be, too.  
    Contrary to common knowledge, things happen at those public meetings.
    I know that’s a pretty big shock. You might want to sit down for a moment.
    Money exchanges hands, new policies and ordinances up for review and passage.
    I should know. I write about them.

  • Bad apples spoiling Southwestern’s barrel

    Column as I see ’em …
    Somerset, home of the Southwestern football team Anderson spanked so badly Friday night to advance to the state finals, is apparently home to a few rather sore losers.
    It was bad enough that one of Southwestern’s assistant coaches had to be booted out for mouthing off to a referee, but he really went over the top when he apparently flipped the bird to Anderson fans while leaving the field.
    Who does he think he is? Jets coach Rex Ryan?
