Today's Opinions

  • Church’s size doesn’t measure Jesus’ presence

    By 10:10 a.m., the place was packed.

    I had come for the 10:30 a.m. worship service, the first one in Cornerstone Baptist Church’s new ministry campus in Inverness, Fla.

    They had set out 800 chairs, but by 10:30, more than 1,000 people had shown up.

    The pastor opened the service by singing, “The hand of our God is on this place.”

  • County’s “nature preserve” isn’t money well spent

    To the editor:

    There it is - the good news that Harrison County will be using taxpayer money to buy another farm. I am overjoyed to hear that a large sum of money will be going to a select few because another article in the same paper sadly proclaimed that unemployment hit 12 percent. This is a red-letter day! I am happy to see this new leadership continue the practice of buying farms/properties to line the pockets of a few individuals.                       

  • National arts figure to teach at local college workshop

    One might think Cynthiana and Harrison County are a bit off the beaten path for a nationally recognized innovator and leader who is responsible for a brand new movement in this country.

    We might be off the beaten path, but Frank X Walker, founder of the nationally recognized, Affrilachian Movement is coming to town. Through his hard work and networking skills, he has brought a strong spotlight to poetry excellence for Appalachian sources and most particularly as created by African American artists.

  • Cynthiana writers get publishing boost

    A guest instructor and published poet, Leatha Kendrick, from the Carnegie Center in Lexington will appear on Sept. 18-19 as the Licking Valley Writer’s Workshop in the role of publishing guru. Ms. Kendrick’s publishing credentials include her own published works as well as those of many of her former students, whose work appears in print largely because of her guidance and help.

  • Authenticity, not perfection, should be the Christian goal

    A few weeks ago my daughter confessed to the blogosphere that she’s a fraud, albeit an unintentional fraud.

    Her neighbor wanted to take my granddaughter to Toys R Us with her girls and then out to lunch. She called Alison and apologetically admitted that she was planning to take the girls to McDonald’s.

  • United Propane doesn’t care about Connersville families

    To the editor:

  • ‘Sometimes you just have to eat the stale doughnuts’

    I’m always the first one in the newsroom in the morning and there’s often leftover food from the night crew left out on the counter.

    Normally I toss it out because it’s usually uncovered, which means bugs and mice probably crawl over it and poop on it...

    Today a big white box sat on the counter, and because I’m a trained newsperson, I had to investigate. I mean, it’s my job and all.

  • Grieving is difficult for children

    A new school year has teachers hopeful that lessons have not been forgotten over the summer. Often a long break can bring even greater changes in family and emotional coping of a child by a death. Returning to school can be comparatively as stressful as an adult going back to work after only a few bereavement days; yet even more so for a child considering developmental factors.
