Today's Opinions

  • Mayor deserves kudos for work bettering city

    So often this space is used to slap the hands of public officials who have pulled the shades on a transparent government.
    Generally, it’s in the form of an editorial and historically is has been for some perceived open meetings infraction.
    I don’t want to do any hand-slapping today. I would rather raise my hands to offer praise this time.
    When Cynthiana Mayor James Smith took office he created a 100-day plan. He ranked 14 goals that he hoped to have achieved at the end of those days or at the very least to see movement there.

  • Personal privacy among issues in bills passed by U.S. House

    Washington, DC has the bad news blues.  Whether it’s Congress passing bills that spend billions of dollars we don’t have, rogue Supreme Court justices ignoring the clear text of the Constitution, or yet another unelected executive branch agency bureaucrat issuing a “regulation” that punishes free enterprise, it often seems that victories for freedom and liberty are rare.

  • Letter against homosexuals, pre-marital sex erroneous

    To the editor:
    It is rather difficult to respond to a letter which cherry picks passages from the Bible and uses them as its sole piece of evidence to prove the thesis.

  • Rain doesn't dampen fun at sister's wedding

    If you happened to read my column a few weeks ago, you might remember that I mentioned  my sister’s upcoming wedding. OK, I didn’t just mention it. I wrote a whole column about it.

     And, yes, it was an outside wedding.

  • Rain has wreaked havoc all over county

    Generally, when someone doesn’t have anything else to say, they talk about the weather.
    However, this summer, weather is on the minds of many, and with the deadly devastation in Johnson County, it’s also in our prayers.
    Even before this week’s rounds of storms, we were experiencing a soggy summer.

  • God’s gift of sex only for heterosexual married couples

    To the editor:

    The Bible provides God’s blueprint for marriage and for His good gift of sex in Genesis 2:24. The gift is only to be enjoyed within a marriage between a man and a woman.
    There are no exceptions suggested, such as homosexual partnerships.
    From Genesis on, the Bible praises the marriage of a man and a woman, but it speaks only negatively of homosexual behavior whenever it is mentioned.
    The Old Testament states, “Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable” (Leviticus 18:22 and 20:13).
