Today's Opinions

  • 'When religion is your living, it's easy to grow weary'

    When religion is your living, it’s easy to grow weary. I get a taste of it every week when I sit down to write this column. First I have to think of something that’s not only entertaining and worth saying, but something that I feel God wants me to say.

    Then I have to make sure I’m as biblically accurate and as faithful to my particular denominational tradition (in my case Reformed theology — Go, Martin Luther!) as I can be without totally alienating the Baptists, Catholics and Pentecostals, etc.

  • State legislators work to kick substance abuse in local jails

    As expected, this last week was the busiest of the year’s 30-day “short session,” with a flurry of bills winning final passage and negotiations in conference over the details of others.

    Even facing a money crisis, in the end, our efforts resulted in legislation that will have long-lasting benefits to Kentuckians. From the war on drugs -- to the economy -- to better roads and education, we have accomplished a great deal in our time here.

  • Rohs Opera House asks for support to keep theater open

     To the editor:

  • Harrison County Saddle and Spurs host horse health day

    To the editor:

  • March program brings awareness to women's sexual assault

    To the editor:

    Vice President Al Gore once said, “I know it’s a challenge to the moral imagination but defeat might serve as well as victory to shake the soul and let the glory out.”

    Last month, we went red for women - a color of awareness and concern. Now in March, another color and another issue concerning women should be brought to our attention.

    March is when college campuses promote their “Green Dot” program that brings attention to the vile and heinous act of sexual assault against women.

  • Improving a community begins with each individual

    I’ve often times struggled with my role as a young adult in this county.

    So often, it seems disappointing to look at a place you convinced yourself was a perfect haven as a child, and to then come back years later, and find that like everything else, your hometown has its own set of flaws.

    So many times it’s easy to point out the faults of Harrison County, and not grasp how those weaknesses could be changed. Or perhaps sometimes we’re just not ready to take on that task that seems very overwhelming.

  • "Watch your words and hold your tongue"

     If I were God, I would create humans with rewind buttons on their mouths, or a 10-second delay device.

    We tend to say some really dumb things.

  • "We all is self-righteous"

    In the newsroom we have a counter where people put doughnuts and cookies for everyone to share.

    Today someone set out a container of humungous cookies. Each cookie is 480 calories with 23 grams of fat. For those keeping score, one cookie is 12 Weight Watchers points, which is more than half my daily allotment.
