Today's Opinions

  • Column: Becoming the weird guy at the park

    When I was younger, I didn't view physical activity as exercise. Sports were just a fun way to pass the time. My brother and I would play baseball, basketball or football (depending on what was in season) with other kids in the neighborhood and our friends from school. I ran cross country in high school and played tennis my senior year. In college, I continued to play pick-up basketball, and I started making the weight room part of my weekly routine.

  • Letter: Seeking answers from and about the post office

    In my experience with individual people, businesses and organizations, I have found that those who "have nothing to hide, hide nothing." This past week, I have attempted to get more facts and figures from the Postal Service regarding the situation that will affect our postal routes in St. Francis and Loretto.

  • Letter: Don't forget the gym

    I was surprised that last week's extensive article on health and fitness through Zumba failed to give any information on our locally owned and operated Lebanon Health and Fitness center on Main Street. Open 24 hours, it features a certified trainer in-house, weight training equipment, kick-boxing, an aerobics class and the popular Silver Sneakers program. Silver Sneakers is a nationally recognized fitness program for seniors. It is so popular and effective that many insurance companies sponsor membership because of its preventative aspects.

  • Column: House remembers fallen veterans

    Over the course of the last week, the Kentucky House of Representatives honored fallen military members and their families in a solemn, moving ceremony in the House chamber. This tradition began in 2004 and the service has become one of the most significant experiences of the session.  

  • Column: Senate bills would help small business, honor veterans

    As the 2011 General Assembly Session draws to a close, many committees start to meet more frequently in order to address any unfinished business. Our mornings are occupied with committee meetings, reviewing bills with staff, and meeting with different advocates on the issues.
