  • Yank out welcome mat to hate groups by giving bridge a new name

    Not long ago, the Klu Klux Klan visited Cynthiana. Mayor James Smith, County Judge Executive Alex Barnett and others did the right thing and sent them packing. But they will be back; and they’ll keep coming back until our community’s “Welcome” mat is gone.
    The mat I am referring to is the memorial bridge named after John Hunt Morgan. General Morgan was a traitor to the United States of America.

  • The scary things in life are definitely worth taking a chance on

    I’ve come to find out­—through lots of experience on the subject—that it’s usually the things that you’re a little scared to do that lead to something great.
    It’s happened to me plenty of times at work; I’ll approach a stranger and find an amazing story.
    Or I’ll have to talk to someone about a difficult topic, and find out they’re happy to talk about it. And we all know difficult topics are usually important topics, and make for stories important to readers.

  • Be thankful for our freedoms this holiday

    As many of us prepare for the July Fourth holiday, I encourage you to join me in being thankful of the freedoms we enjoy.
    Though discouraging news can be hard to understand, such as the recent shootings in South Carolina, the resilience of the people in Charleston, and the discussion that has developed from that, are results of our free society.
    Unfortunately, sometimes people take advantage of the freedom to do harm, but Americans show that we can unite and figure our way through a difficult time to a better place.

  • This 4th, thank soldiers, founding fathers

    Kentucky may not have yet been a state when our country declared its independence nearly 240 years ago, but as we prepare to celebrate that anniversary this weekend, it is worth pointing out we do have ties to this early period.
    We were home to about a half-dozen skirmishes during the Revolutionary War, for example, including what is widely believed to be its last: The Battle of Blue Licks in nearby Robertson County.
