Today's Opinions

  • Food is available to those in need

    To the editor:

    Last week you printed a letter concerning a lady not getting help when she needed it. This upset me, so I jumped in trying to locate this lady, which I did with the help of another person. I have talked with her, and we got everything straightened out. She was in the dark about where and whom she could turn to and the person who refused her help must have been in the dark also.

    The Food Pantry has no financial guidelines for getting food and the only time one is refused food is when it is being abused and never if children are involved.

  • Speeding drivers kill family pets

    To the editor,

    I would just like to write and say I think it is awful how fast people drive on US 62 E. and how heartless people can be. On Sunday, Feb. 8 my 12 month old puppy had got out and was near the road. Someone hit him and didn’t even care enough to stop.

    He passed away. It was just like losing one of my children. He was our best friend. So I hope who ever did this to our family will please slow down. We miss our babe very much and this won’t bring him back but it may save another animals life. His name was Tank.

  • Cynthiana Christian Church and Judge Executive thanked for "first class manner"

    To the editor,

    I just wanted to thank everyone that worked so hard during the ice storm, especially the Cynthiana Christian Church.

    They made all those without power feel right at home and ran the shelter in a first class manner. Also, thanks to all those businesses that donated food, it was greatly appreciated and no one went without.

    County Judge Alex Barnett came into the shelter on a daily basis to keep everyone abreast of the restoration progress being made. Too bad we can’t clone Alex.

  • "Maybe 'like mother, like daughter' isn't so bad"

    Along with zillions of other people, my daughter, Alison, writes a blog.

    As The Neurotic Housewife, Alison writes about her life as a stay-at-home mom, and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed getting to know this side of her in a horrifying sort of way.

    It’s like looking into a mirror.

    Oscar Wilde once said, “All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy.”

    As my girls grew up, I often taunted them with that. Oh yeah? You think I’m a fruitcake? Just wait until you get older and you find yourself doing the exact same things.

  • Shannon's hope is in Lord, not Congress

    To the editor:

    CNN newscasters announced this past week that 598,000 jobs were lost in January 2009 in the United States. One reporter said it is the worst job loss in 34 years. Another commented that our economy looks a lot like it did at the beginning of the Great Depression. Scary times, they all agreed. 

  • Kentucky's claim as "Horse Capital of the World" is at risk

    To the editor:

    Kentucky and horses... They’re a natural combination that has made the Bluegrass State the “Horse Capital of the World.” But Kentucky’s stake to the title is at risk.

    States that have historically have been unable to compete with Kentucky recognize the horse industry’s viability and success and are attracting Kentucky-based horsemen with enhanced purses and breeder incentives which will substantially alter Kentucky racing in the next one to three years.

  • Kentucky budget shortfall of $456 million is focus in Frankfort

    The General Assembly returned to Frankfort early last week, with the aftermath of last month’s snow and ice storm and the ongoing budget problems understandably taking up much of our time.

  • "We all is homeless - just workin our way toward home"

    I promised Gator that I would write about him.

    His real name is Mike, and he lives in the woods in a camp with some other people.

    I only met him briefly, which is par for the course for reporters. We get to know people long enough to get what we need for a story, but often not long enough to care.

    I’m talking about myself here, and the truth is I’m not proud of it. But I’m telling you this because God’s been chipping away at my uncaring, although he’s got a long way to go.
