Today's Opinions

  • Next Steps

    We were shocked Saturday morning when we heard that Marion County High School boys basketball coach Anthony Epps had been arrested for DUI and reckless driving.

    Just last month, Epps pled guilty to reckless driving, stemming from an incident in October, when he was initially charged with DUI.

    At first we didn't believe it. We didn't want to believe it, but it only took a few phone calls to confirm that it was true.

  • Correction June 15

     In an engagement announcement for Catherine Corbett and Charles Bruce Parkerson Jr., it mistakenly said Corbett attended Bardstown High School and is employed at Heaven Hill Distillery. Actually, Parkerson attended Bardstown High School and is employed at Heaven Hill Distillery.

  • Letter: Food program or conditioning?

    The government child feeding program could be helpful if an earthquake or other disruptive situation happens.

    But isn't it the responsibility of parents to feed their children?

    If a family needs food stamps, are they not available to fill a need? Where does the family responsibility rest?

    It seems to be a conditioning feeding system to control or encourage more young people to rely on the government for their daily bread.

  • Tips for future college students

    It's the typical pattern: students graduate from high school, and parents and relatives will immediately give them advice about how to navigate the world of college. Which is great, except some of those who give advice have been out of college for years, maybe even decades. So, as a current college student, I thought I'd write a column with some up-to-date advice based on my two-year experience.

  • Letter: Do courts violate the Constitution?

    The Fifth Amendment says many things, but in the middle it says, “... nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb.” That means you can’t be put on trial twice for the same offense.
    Now in Communist China and dictator Syria, their courts put people on trial over and over until they get the verdict they want. It’s called jury shopping!
    Why does the Kentucky court system do the same thing? I guess there is a dictator and Communist connection.

  • Letter: Animal shelter does good work

    As a founding member and current president of the Marion County Humane Society, I would like to commend and congratulate the staff and volunteers at the Marion County Animal Shelter for their excellent efforts on behalf of animals (and people) these past few years. My good friend, the late Georgia Duley (the original president), would be so proud and happy if she could see what the shelter has evolved into.
