Today's Opinions

  • Different religions, but one belief that God will redeem His people

    I can honestly say it was the best gefilte fish I ever ate, mainly because I’d never eaten any before.

    “Gefilte” sounds tastier than “ground up raw fish mixed with eggs, onions and matzoh meal then stuffed into the skin of a de-boned fish and poached.”

    I ate it as part of a Passover Seder as a guest of Congregation Beth Sholom Jewish Synagogue in Beverly Hills, Fla.

  • Christ honored today, on the anniversary of His death

    To the editor:

    Thursday, April 9, marks the first day of Passover.

    “For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt… and the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you…” (Exodus 12: 12, 13).

  • Wilson family thankful for help after fire takes house

    To the editor:

    Most of you already know that Thomas, D.J. and I lost everything we owned in a house fire on Monday, March 16. We have so many people to offer our thanks to.

    First of all, I would like to thank all those who called and reported the fire. We’d like to thank Brad Marshall and Joe (our mailman) for knocking on doors and windows to make sure nobody was home. Next, we want to thank the firefighters for all they did for us. Personally, myself, I want to thank Robert Newcomb for comforting me and giving me support when I needed it most.

  • Kindness is key to supporting those suffering with loss

    “Call us if you need anything…” How often is this phrase heard at a funeral visitation? Although well intended, it really rings of half-hearted efforts of false support. Still other comments, which may harm rather then help: “God needed him more…you are only given what you can handle”, and “at least he isn’t suffering anymore.” While searching for meaning is part of the grief process, it is a highly personal and diversified phenomenon.

  • 'God sent his son to fix the world, to fix people'

    Her mother had promised she would stay around until the semester ended so her daughter wouldn’t be distracted during finals.

    After her last exam, she raced home, and as she walked into the kitchen her father told her mother their daughter was home. Her mom opened her eyes, smiled and then died.

    It was the day before her 21st birthday.

    She called her dad recently to beg, “Daddy, you have to fix this!”

  • CATS tests nixed by state legislators during regular session

    While there are still two days left in the 2009 Regular Session to consider any possible vetoes as well as several other unresolved bills, the General Assembly largely wrapped up its work on Friday by passing not one but two landmark pieces of legislation.

  • The city has a responsibility to inform citizens, says commissioner

    When Heather Ladick addressed the Cynthiana City Commission on Tuesday, March 24, several issues of concern were exposed. An examination of these issues raises several questions. What exactly is the role of the city? What is the responsibility of the city to its residents? Other than paying taxes, do the citizens have any other obligations to their community?

  • God's judgement requires no votes, no 'singing for your life,' no condemnation

    Although I consider myself current with pop culture, this is the first season I’ve watched “American Idol.”

    In years past I’ve seen the last 15 minutes of some of the final shows to see who wins, but not knowing who’s who, I didn’t really care one way or another.

    This season, mostly because I hate being left out of the water cooler conversation, I decided early on to watch every episode, from first auditions to finale, and I even hope to buy tickets to see the Top Ten Idol contestants when they go on tour this summer.
