  • Texting, it's not just for kids

    I’ve hit a milestone in my life. Although I turned 50 last spring, that’s not it. It’s not a landmark wedding anniversary or work anniversary.

    I, “Techno No”, am a txtr.

    I don’t text while I’m driving... I have a hard enough time doing it sitting still. But, in an effort to keep communications open with my children, I had to do something.

    My eldest is beyond the texting. She’ll still send a message occasionally. One recent message admonished me for not wearing my glasses when I sent her a message.

  • Extreme Makeover Homes built for free, but expensive to owners

    To the editor:

    As for the Hassall house being a gift, I wonder, does it show us that we should watch what we wish and ask for? You just may get it and find that you have a very big white elephant on your hands.

    Ty Pennington and his crews go into a town and tear down, rather than fix up, and put up a house that is unrealistic for the people who will live in it. Plus, some are in neighborhoods that they don’t fit in.

  • ‘Gone With The Wind’ shown at Rohs Saturday

    ‘Gone With The Wind’ is a giant of a movie.  For almost seven decades—December 15th will mark the 70th anniversary of its premiere - it has remained a favorite,  never losing popularity, never growing dated, never disappearing from the public’s imagination.  In 1939, buzz about the movie swirled about the country for months as fans of Margaret Mitchell’s successful novel awaited the film release...

  • Money to burn

    It may be April Fool’s Day, but smokers in Kentucky won’t be laughing when checking out with their tobacco products on April 1.

    That’s when state and federal tax increases will take effect.

    The state increase amounts to 30 cents on each pack of cigarettes. The federal tax boosts the cost per pack by 61 cents. A carton of cigarettes will increase by $9.10.

    Carol Rice, manager at Ken’s Exxon, predicts that the increases will drive smokers to the cheaper generic-type cigarettes.

  • God’s name shouldn’t be attached to personal opinions and ideas

    To the editor:

    Do you know why many people stopped going to church? Or why they never started in the first place?  It might be because we keep attaching God’s name to our opinions.

    Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and their opinion is neither right nor wrong, because it is their opinion. But if there is a God (and I’m convinced there is), I wonder how he feels about us attaching his name to our opinion. We try to give authority and clout to our own ideas by throwing the G-word into the same sentence.

  • Once you’re His, there’s no sin He can’t or won’t forgive

    ‘When I was about 10 I had gorilla legs, which embarrassed me horribly.

    Next to my fair-haired classmates who all had fine downy fuzz on their legs, I thought I stood out and that everyone thought I was as hideous as I considered myself to be.

    That was also in the olden days when girls weren’t allowed to wear pants to school, so I couldn’t hide my legs underneath a pair of jeans.
