Today's Opinions

  • On the campaign trail

    Will the madness stop?
    Each year at election time, the commercials and news clips become almost unbearable. Well, not almost, most assuredly unbearable.
    Enough with the mudslinging!
    Tell me why I should vote for your candidate. What makes him qualified for the position?
    Also with each election comes the Democrat’s practice of accepting candidate endorsement letters to the editor.
    Highlight the word “endorsement.”

  • Physicians could face issues with House Bill 1

    By: Dr. Don R. Stephens, M.D.
    Senator R.J. Palmer recently defended passage of House Bill 1-commonly referred to as the “Pill Mill Bill” - and said the law contained “common sense” requirements for physicians who prescribe certain controlled substances. Despite his attempts at defending the bill, however, every physician, medical provider, medical facility and patient knows the law’s mandates have created unnecessary burdens and cost that clearly need to be corrected.

  • Well paid should never complain about wages

    As a way of sparking some potential interesting letters to the editor, I would like to offer up the conversation regarding the current situation in the NFL.
    Referees!!!
    Love them or hate them, they are just as much part of any game played as the athletes are.
    Take referees out of a game and we would be stuck watching a variation of the ultimate fighter in most cases... which could prove to be interesting in some cases.

  • Using dowsing technique to determine melon’s ripeness

    Sometimes I’m left scratching my head and feeling like perhaps somewhere there is a camera filming my reaction to some silly situation.
    As I’ve said before, this is my second year growing a box garden in my backyard.
    Last year it was tomatoes and herbs. This year, tomatoes, watermelon and cantaloupe.
    I didn’t know what to expect when I planted the melons. Certainly not that they would overflow the box and stretch into my yard.
    But they did.

  • From White Castle to fine finger foods

    “It’s time for football in the Bluegrass!!!”
    I never get tired of hearing that chilling phrase or the jets flying over after the National Anthem is played.
    Kentucky football, support it or not, is here again.
    During my college days, which were highlighted by watching players like Andre’ Woodson, Jacob Tamme, Keenan Burton, Wesley Woodyard, Rafael Little and of course Steve Johnson, I had an opportunity to experience some of the best UK football ever played.

  • Farmer's Market is a must

    To the editor:

    A couple of Saturdays ago, as I was driving between Frankfort and Lexington, I received a phone call telling me that my name had been drawn to win a gift basket from the farmers’ market in Cynthiana.
    I was surprised, since I never win anything, and since I didn’t remember entering. I then recalled that I had quickly scrawled my name and phone number on a ticket a week before when I stopped to get some corn.
