Today's Opinions

  • Debate is needed for residents to get to know candidates

    To the editor:

    I was wondering if there was going to be a debate this election. And if not, why? There has been a debate in our past election years. I feel it would benefit all voters to have a debate so we can hear first hand what the issues are that each person is concerned with and how they plan on doing for our town.

  • Keep positive changes, elect Mark Mattmiller on Nov. 2

    To the editor:

  • Blessed hunger pangs

    One day last week I was at the market buying bananas, broccoli slaw and Vidalia onions and when the kid bagging my groceries asked, “How are you today?” I told him, “I’m so hungry I could eat my arm.”

    We both laughed and then when I got to my car I gobbled a banana in about three bites because, frankly, my arm was looking pretty tasty.

  • Data center is vital to Berry community, should be funded

    To the editor:

  • Postal Service price hike - neither justified nor legal

    At Landmark Community Newspapers, Inc., Shelbyville, KY (which I serve as postal consultant after retiring in 2008 from a 35-year career), when we face tough economic times, we have to make tough decisions. But ultimately, our goal is to grow our business by providing services that consumers want and need at competitive prices.

    When our business grows, so do jobs. If we do business right, our customers grow with us. In the end, making the right choices is right for the economy, jobs and our businesses.

  • Bicycles awarded at ninth annual Rev. Ross Bike Race

    To the editor:

    Under bright, sunny skies, the ninth annual Rev. Ross Bike Race took place. A good crowd was on hand to provide encouragement for the competitors. The day’s events concluded with spectators and contestants enjoying some water balloon tossing.

    The results for the race were as follows:

  • Respect

    On an evening stroll with my husband and dog last week, I was admiring the progress of several projects at Flat Run Veterans Park.

    Playground equipment beckons small children to the center of the park.

    The unique earth-bag structure, sponsored by the Cynthiana Rotary Club, has walls.

    The presence of heavy equipment and long lines of trenches indicates a sewer line will soon be completed for the new Farmers Market building.

    But among all the progress, destruction slapped me in the face.

  • The ABCs of healthy eating

    A new dish tops the menu at this year’s Kentucky State Fair.

    Meet the Krispy Kreme cheeseburger.

    Think of a regular cheeseburger. Now, take off the bun and replace it with a Krispy Kreme glazed donut on the top and bottom.

    And it’s not just Kentuckians buying the 1,000-calorie-loaded concoction.

    At the Wisconsin State Fair earlier this month, patrons could not only buy the Krispy Kreme cheeseburger, they could also pay an extra dollar to top it off with chocolate-covered bacon.

    I like donuts.

    I like hamburgers.
