  • Speak up, rock the boat, roar... shoot, just use your voice

    My favorite part of any newspaper is the editorial section. We call ours the Opinion page. It’s the most critical component of a local newpaper, in my opinion.

    But it can also be a revealing page and not just because it tells the public’s view on a myriad of topics. When the Opinion page of a community newspaper is anemic, that is, lacking the voice of its readers, it’s a sign of apathy or a lack of belief in the power of a single voice.

  • Legislative session mostly successful, few issues missed

    Bowling Green Daily News

    The 2014 General Assembly session has officially ended, and overall, we believe our legislators did a good job for the people of this state during their time in Frankfort.

  • Trees, glorious trees

    You know I’m a warm weather girl but I’ve got to say that little bit of snow here on the farm last week was just flat gorgeous! Brilliant white blanketed by emerald green made the landscape almost glimmer. Add the beauty of those blooming pink redbud trees with thick white snowflakes covering them and it was a site to behold.

    As I drove into town it was obvious that those of us on the ridge got quite a bit more snow than the rest of you. I’m sorry you missed it.
