Today's Opinions

  • Service workers respond to winter weather challenges

    The snow and ice storm of 2009 can be deemed nothing short of a challenge for many.

    Those who met the challenge are nothing short of heroes.

    Challenge came in the way of moms and dads trying to keep the family warm and fed without electricity. It came in the way of electric service men and women facing the elements to light the county. And it came in the way of road crews clearing paths on streets and roads not just for grocery-bound citizens, but for emergency responders as well.

  • McKee leads committee for agriculture, small business

    FRANKFORT – The General Assembly kicked off the 2009 Regular Session early last week, dedicating its first four days to electing our legislative leaders and appointing the various committees for the next two years.

  • “Beware of sheep bait”; trust only God alone

    Touted as the youngest ordained minister in history, 4-year-old Marjoe Gortner burst onto the Holy Ghost revival scene in the late 1940s.

    His father, a second-generation preacher, trained the boy, who had a talent for sweeping and pointed gestures, to proclaim the name of “Jay-zus” — and bilk money from the faithful who came to hear him preach.

  • Kearns family thanks family and friends for support

    To the editor,

    My family would like to thank all of you so very much for the flowers, cards, letters, food and also gave money when we lost our beloved daughter Danyell Beth Kearns on Jan. 6, 2009. It meant so much to us to see she had so many family and friends that loved her and we had so many family and friends to lean on. She will be missed so much but never forgotten.

    The money that was donated on her behalf will be used towards a headstone for her grave. This will be her last gift and it will come from all of you.

  • Swan swim

    Identified as young tundra swans, these two swans have taken up residence in Cynthiana’s Licking River near the ballpark. “I would say they’re lost from their flock...” said Jerry Jenkins, who noticed the swans in the river last week. Jenkins said the one-year-old swans were attracted to the vegetation in the river. “They’ll probably head up to Canada, or wherever they’re from when it gets warmer,” Jenkins said.

  • Congressman Davis offers assistance for transition to digital television

    On Feb. 17, 2009, all over-the-air broadcasters will switch from an analog to a digital format. Doing so will improve the quality and choice of television available in our homes, but it will require some adjustment. As your congressman, I hope to provide you with resources that will ease this transition.

    Currently, U.S. broadcast stations employ both analog and digital formats. However, in 2006, Congress passed legislation that would require all television stations to stop broadcasting on analog airwaves and begin broadcasting only in digital. 

  • Rohs Opera House shows classic movie; needs support of community

    To the editor:

    I would like to encourage everyone to don their parkas, dig out from under the ice, and join the Rohs Opera House and the Cynthiana Arts Council for Classic Movie Night. The Classic Movie Night series offers the people in our community the rare opportunity to see some of the best movies ever made as they were meant to be seen—in a darkened theatre on a big screen.

  • Worsening economy thins newspaper pages

    A Friday afternoon visit to H.A. Jones to finalize the purchase of a business truck purchase found Montgomery Northcutt occupying space in the showroom.

    With his charming demeanor, Montgomery greeted me.

    “What have you done to the newspaper?” he asked. That question was much less pointed than Montgomery’s next question regarding where all my hair went.
