Today's Opinions

  • Public safety, education and more addressed this past week

    This past week in Frankfort, the Senate passed key pieces of legislation that help our students and school districts, address public safety issues, provide economic development and give law enforcement time-saving investigation procedures.

  • Bills focused on improving state’s schools

    With more than half of state government’s revenue dedicated to education, it shouldn’t be a surprise that many of the bills considered by the General Assembly every year are also centered on the subject.
    That was certainly the case last week in the Kentucky House of Representatives, which sent to the Senate several pieces of legislation designed to improve different facets of our schools.

  • Corrections, Feb. 5

    A story about allegations against the “Call of the Wildman” show in last week’s edition should have read that Karen Bailey of the Kentucky Wildlife Center told Mother Jones that she received baby raccoons, which were in need of critical care in April 2012.
    Also, a cutline from the Kentucky Bluegrass Music Kickoff should have identified a singer as Chloe Goss of Parksville.

  • Gas, Mother Jones and E911

    Sunday night I was watching television when I saw a commercial promoting the natural gas industry. The spokeswoman referred to hydraulic fracturing as proven safe and reliable.
    The intent was clear: hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, is nothing to worry about.
    It seems a little optimistic to make that claim. The EPA is in the process of conducting its own study (see here: http://www2.epa.gov/hfstudy).

  • Fit as a fiddle

    In spite of cold weather and less-than-ideal road conditions, hundreds of people made it to this year's Kentucky Bluegrass Music Kickoff.
    When the festival started, it was held at the Centre Square Convention Center, but it didn't take long for the event to need more space. Since then, it's been held at Marion County High School.
