  • Explicit: ‘Gun tourism’ is for adults

    By the Frankfort State Journal editorial staff

    Looking for an exotic vacation spot? Tired of trips to the beach, the mountains or an amusement park? Need a place where the family can go to let off a little steam, maybe some aggression, make some noise, mess up some stuff?

  • Celebrate the American worker

    “I learned the value of hard work by working hard.” - Margaret Mead

    Labor Day is Monday.
    The only reason you probably know that is because you get an extra day off work (hopefully), or your kids don’t have school that day.
    For many of us, Labor Day is the symbolic end of summer. (Can someone please pass the Kleenex?)
    However, in terms of a “holiday,” Labor Day probably doesn’t mean much to you.
    But, it should.
    Labor Day is a public holiday held in honor of working people.

  • Letter to the editor: Ring the bell

    Ring the bell
    Last week’s school board meeting revealed two very different aspects of the school district. Employees of the central office delivered thorough presentations of the current environment and the prospective school year. All deserve recognition of a job well done and encouragement to keep up the good work.

    Every job requires a certain mix of skills and knowledge. A welder must read blueprints, retailers must have merchandising knowledge, software developers typically need to know C++ and so on.
    Yet, the skills that many employers value the most apply to nearly every position in every field. These skills, commonly referred to as soft skills, can give you an incredible edge whether you’re looking for your next career opportunity or already on the job.
