  • Letter: Support groups here to help

    Grief is a journey that all go through. It can be debilitating. Grief affects us all in many ways emotionally, physically and spiritually. There are times in life that we can get stuck in grief and are not sure how to get through the heartbreak. Fall will soon be here and holidays are just around the corner, both are difficult when dealing with loss.

  • Scrutiny is not dying

    I have to acknowledge a random stranger for some motivation and inspiration.
    Last Tuesday I was in Frankfort, and while I waited for Mike Haydon's memorial service to begin, a man behind me was engaged in a conversation that piqued my interest.
    The word "scrutiny" is what drew me in.
    The man, who I didn't know, was telling those around him that now was a good time to do something because there was less scrutiny than in the past because newspapers were going broke.
    Now, let me put a few things out there before I dissect what I heard.

  • Evolving education

    A group of Kentucky legislators are questioning proposed education standards for Kentucky students. Apparently, in order to meet national education standards, students should be taught about evolution.
    For a few legislators, this is too much, or it's maybe not enough.
    "I would hope that creationism is presented as a theory in the classroom, in a science classroom, alongside evolution," Sen. David Givens, R-Greensburg, told the Lexington Herald-Leader last week.

  • Do veterans deserve a discount?

    A question arose recently concerning businesses offering discounts to veterans. Should businesses offer, or better yet, should business owners feel obligated to offer a vet a discount on goods and services?
    Let me say that I hold the highest respect for the men and women who served and are now serving in  the armed forces of the United States.
    I especially appreciate the service of Vietnam vets who weren't treated with the utmost respect either during the war or after it ended with the fall of Saigon on April 30, 1975.
