Today's Opinions

  • Judge Myles called ‘honest, capable’

    To the editor:

    I am writing in support of Judge John David Myles for Family Court. He is honest, capable and experienced.

    As one of the original Family Court judges when it was a project, I hoped that the vision we had of a Court for Families would continue.

    John David Myles is an example of the best in the role of Family Court judge.

    To the editor:

  • Sign law useless unless it’s enforced

    By Ben Carlson

    Publisher

    Column as I see ’em …

    I know I was gone for a while, but I’m sure I read somewhere (here) that the city council and fiscal court passed a new sign ordinance not long ago.

    This ordinance was supposed to be a masterpiece compared to the one it replaced, with clear language to make enforcement – and favoritism for those who know how to return favors – things of the past.

  • Proud of my wife and teachers just like her

    I probably don’t tell her enough, but I am beyond-words proud of the lady that looked me in the eye on that July afternoon and said, “I do.”

    She’s a teacher.

    She’s a public school teacher at that. And she is part of the most under-appreciated, misunderstood and wrongly maligned profession in the world today.

    Obviously, there are some people working in classrooms who probably should be doing something else. That’s true with any profession. But don’t lump the vast majority in the basket with the bad apples.

  • Depression can be treated successfully

    Robin Williams was an amazingly talented actor and comedian. He was a devoted philanthropist who dedicated time, talent and funds to help individuals and groups enjoy a better quality of life. Williams also suffered from depression. He died August 11, an apparent suicide.

    About six million men in the United States experience a depressive disorder. About 65 percent of the men with depression will go undiagnosed and without treatment. About 97 percent of those reporting depression also report that their work, home life and relationships suffer as a result of depression.

  • Robin Williams will be greatly missed

    Monday night, it was announced that Oscar-winning actor/comic Robin William, 63, was found dead in his California of an apparent suicide.

  • New UK program gives farmers tools to succeed

    UK Cooperative Extension programs in eight central Kentucky counties have joined together to offer the KyFarmStart beginning farmer program this fall. KyFarmStart is a comprehensive whole farm management education program designed for beginning farmers, defined as those who have been managing a farm for less than 10 years as a primary operator, as well as those considering a future in farming. The program will offer multiple educational opportunities, including: classroom instruction, field days, and farm demonstrations.

  • Don’t take short cuts; get your fall gardening off to a good start

    Well, the change has begun. School started today and the State Fair is close behind. To me, that marks the beginning of fall. The daylight gets shorter, too. Time to start the fall frenzy!

    We hopefully can count on more frequent rains now and that means planting new trees, shrubs, perennials and even a few fall vegetables. Extra work in the beginning means less work later. Shortcuts rarely save you anything.
