  • Letter: Domestic Terrorism

    The 9/11 terrorist attack on this country was diabolical and expensive. But far, far more costly than the 3,000 American lives and three buildings lost that day was the subsequent cost … 6,735 young American kids that died on the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan (so far) and the trillion dollar-plus  that it cost to prosecute that war.

  • Kynect me not? Columnist has trouble with exchange

    By Ryan Craig

    Editor, The Todd County Standard

    Despite the hubbub concerning the Affordable Care Act or Obama Care or (depending on your political leaning) the end of civilization or the beginning of a beautiful tomorrow, I look forward to trying to get different, cheaper insurance.

    Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m kind of like Switzerland when it comes to the idea of a marketplace to shop for insurance.

  • Celebrate Bluegrass history during Archives Month

    From a historical perspective, it is not much of a stretch to say that some of the Western Hemisphere’s first farmers were Kentuckians.

    That’s because the Red River Gorge in Eastern Kentucky is just one of a few hotspots in North and South America where archeologists say modern agriculture took its first steps. Early bands of pre-historic settlers found its soil and climate ideal to domesticate such wild plants as the sunflower, whose seeds added both flavor and nutrition to their food.

  • Monk invasion

    Men of courage and spirit traveled across the globe and visited Lebanon along the way. They brought with them gifts, merchandise and a message of peace. These men taught, learned and loved. 

    And while they may never return, they sure left something behind. 

    Of course, I’m talking about the monks from the Tashi Kyil Monastery, in India.

    I got to experience the monks and their lessons last week in a way different from most.

  • Thoughts to consider before granting a pipeline easement

    By Terry Geoghegan and Tom FitzGerald

    Landowners  contacted by the Bluegrass Pipeline Partners LLC, the Williams Company or one of their representatives about selling an easement for the construction of a 24-inch pressurized natural gas liquids pipeline across their property, rightfully have questions about whether granting such an easement is in their interest.
