Today's Opinions

  • Letter: Nominate an everyday hero

    I’m currently taking nominees for the next installment of the Kentucky’s Everyday Heroes book series, third volume. The criteria is: A living Kentuckian who has overcome extreme personal challenges and/or has given of themselves in a noble and sacrificial way. Their lives serve as examples to inspire others to greater acts of character. The nominee would be considered “ordinary”, commonly known only to people in their communities, but will have an “extraordinary” lasting impact.

  • Letter: What’s wrong with this picture?

    We have been regaled by the radical right and the misguided Tea Party proponents with claims that the Dastardly Democrats are “tax and spend” lunatics responsible for running up nearly $14 trillion in federal deficits and driving the country into ruin. But the cold hard facts demonstrate just the opposite is true.

  • Letter: Winning community
  • Step One

    In the book, Candy: A Novel of Love and Addiction, author Luke Davies writes, “When you can stop you don’t want to, and when you want to stop, you can’t...”

    We are confident that statement hits home for anyone who has fought or is fighting an addiction. And, we know family members and friends of addicts can also relate. 

    Addiction is an ugly thing.

  • Smoking: The truth never hurts

    The purpose is to get people to quit. Simple as that.

    The Food and Drug Administration recently announced that beginning in September 2012, it will require larger, more prominent health warnings on all cigarette packaging and advertisements in the United States.

    The changes will be the first in more than 25 years and are "a significant advancement in communicating the dangers of smoking," according to the FDA.

  • Correction

     On page A7 of last week's Enterprise, Lauran Knott's name was spelled incorrectly in a cutline about a Harry Potter party at the Marion County Public Library.    

  • Letter: Tournament was a success
  • It's official: three seek governor's seat

    The last free man in America has made it official. Gatewood Galbraith has been campaigning for governor for several months, but last week he and his running mate, Dea Riley, finally turned in their petition to be included on the November ballot to the Secretary of State's Office.

    Galbraith will appear on the ballot as an independent candidate along our incumbent Gov. Steve Beshear, a Democrat, and Senate President David Williams, a Republican.
