Today's Opinions

  • Letter: Good job, Governor

    I applaud Governor Steve Beshear for stepping in and working with AK Steel and the Environmental Protection Agency in trying to resolve environmental violations at the Ashland coal plant. According to a Dec. 9 article in The (Ashland, Ky.) Independent, company representatives acknowledge problems at the plant and project $50 million to resolve these problems to the satisfaction of the EPA. I wish the governor and AK well, and hope that they will come to the reasonable solution they seek If they are successful, many good-paying jobs will be saved.

  • Big decision

    No one is perfect.

    We all make mistakes. We don't always use the best judgment and, occasionally, we act before we think.

    We are human, after all.

  • Show that you care

    Can you imagine leaving your family, your home and basically all of your belongings and starting your life from scratch?

    Last week, I met a woman who has been forced to do just that. She is a victim of domestic violence. Or, rather, I should say she is a survivor.

  • Letter: Stay safe during the holidays

    Kudos to the Marion County EMS/Rescue Squad on Walnut Street for their efforts to keep Marion Countians safe while driving this holiday season. Their impossible-to-miss signs and the wrecked car in front of their station are great reminders of how to keep yourself and your loved ones safe during the holidays by remembering a few simple driving rules.  The signs plainly outline the ways to keep safe and make sure you have a ‘Happy Ever After’.  

  • Letter: Make closing decision sooner

    Something happened last year that I didn’t like, and it seems to be happening again this year. I hope it changes as we do have snow coming. All the other schools are on the news at night saying no school. Our darned school person, whoever he/she is, is not putting our notices out until 6 a.m. on the day of no school! This is not fair to us grandparents or our grandchildren!

  • Letter: Bourbon Chase a good time

    The Lebanon Tourist & Convention Commission and its director, Chris Hamilton, made the second running of The Bourbon Chase a huge success. The experience in Lebanon was greatly enhanced over year one. I look forward to working with Lebanon to improve it even more in 2011.

  • Letter: Learn about epilepsy

    More than three million Americans have epilepsy or a seizure disorder, and 50 million worldwide. I am one of thousands of volunteers working to raise awareness of this condition.

    Epilepsy is just as common as breast cancer, but many people know little about it or what to do when someone is having a seizure.

  • Letter: We need a budget

    Here we are on the brink again with Congress leaving Washington D.C. for a month or longer recess an no budget written for the fiscal year and the lawmakers having to pass a standby bill to keep the government running while they are out in the country seeking re-election in November. Just the fellows we need returning! Well, we know that a lot of them are not returning to D.C. next year.
