Today's Opinions

  • Kick your Easter dinner up a notch this year

    What a glorious time of year this is. It is my favorite holiday and since moving to Kentucky, I don’t have to worry if it’s going to snow.

    Growing up, we always got together shortly after church on Easter Sunday. I’m sure a lot of you do, too. Brunch is our favorite because you can do so much more variety. There will always be the usual suspects; ham, green beans, casseroles, carrots and bread. I like to kick it up a notch and take the boring, traditional dishes and make them new.

  • Does your lifestyle honor God?

    Have you ever paused to consider Uzzah from the Old Testament?

  • When it comes to activated charcoal, look before you leap

    Following trends is not a bad thing. I don’t believe in magic bullets or miracle cures. I do however, monitor all the food trends in the stores, media, food blogs, etc.

  • House addresses serious issues in Kentucky

    The most productive and significant legislative session in modern history has officially come to an end. Although it was a short, 30-day session, the General Assembly has accomplished more in 2017 than we have in most 60-day sessions.

  • Spring has sprung so go mow your grass

    The smell of fresh cut grass wafting through the neighborhood is one of the surest signs of spring. You should already be thinking about lawn care since it’s time to clip the grass for the first time. Your most important annual lawn duties begin with that first mowing.

  • Eyes, nose, fingers best tools to select fruit

    Some days it’s really tough to stay inside and do chores and today is one of them. It’s sunny and almost 60 degrees. I know myself very well, and if I put off writing this until tonight, my body and brain will be too tired. So, I like eating almost as much as I like being outside so let’s talk food.

    Fruit is my idea of candy, well besides hot cocoa. While I may have more knowledge than some when it comes to picking good fruit, I do fail at times. It’s really hard to tell when shopping at the grocery. They’ve gotten really tricky.

  • Holding out hope, no matter what

    On April Fool’s morning, I found myself in a crowd of 5,000 runners, struggling up and down the hills of Old Frankfort Pike, hoping my injured leg would hold up for the 13 miles of a half marathon I wasn’t ready to run.

    The day before the race, I was listening to an interview between Michael Barbaro of the New York Times, and Mark, a retired coal miner from Harlan.

  • Lack of respect for law, dead evident

    To the editor:

    Recently while in Frankfort, I was traveling northbound on Versailles Road approaching what is called the East/West Connector. The light had just turned green (arrow) to allow those of us stopped to proceed westbound onto the E/W connector.

    I could see as the eighth car in line traveled through the intersection that a sheriff’s car had his or her lights and siren blaring, heading southbound and announcing the arrival as the lead car for a funeral procession.
