Today's Opinions

  • Does God punish his people?

    The other day I told a pastor friend about the time God put me in Time Out.

    I had gone to speak at a church women’s event, and at the time I thought I was the second coming of Beth Moore, a superstar Bible teacher with an almost cult-like following.

    I went expecting that, after the event, I’d be hoisted onto people’s shoulders and carried through the streets to shouts of “Hooray for Nancy!”

    Everyone knows about March Madness.

    But now there’s “April Sadness.”

    While UK fans are still crying over the Wildcats’ loss and Duke fans are still throwing confetti, city crews are picking up a basketball for a good cause.

    Next week, city crews will battle one another for the crowning reign of “April Sadness” champions.

    The city fire department and police department will take the floor at City Hall gym first on Tuesday, April 20 at 7 p.m.

  • Only in Harrison County...

    As a reporter, I’ve heard of many crazy things. But for the first time, I actually sat in my Democrat office and laughed out loud.

    It was a Friday morning call from Jo Banks. A coordinator for the Youth Livestock Club, Jo keeps me updated on the goings-on of the organization.

    I wasn’t surprised to hear from her. But I was surprised to hear what she had to say.

  • Newberry’s volunteer service proves he is the best candidate

    Sleep is nice.

    Some days, sleep is very nice.

    But sleep for some people, especially kids, isn’t so easy without a bed.

    Introducing the Build-A-Bed project.

    Volunteers from across the state of Kentucky will come together on May 8 at noon at the Kentucky National Guard headquarters in Frankfort, to begin a 24-hour bed-making blitz.

    Three beds will be donated to children in each county of Kentucky.

    Last year’s Build-A-Bed effort yielded 57 beds for kindergarten students through high school seniors.
