Today's Opinions

  • Trump the terrible

    Trump the Terrible. That's my nickname for this terrible person, and horrible candidate for president. I cringe at the very reality that he is actually running for office. Trump's behavior is utterly indefensible; yet Republicans continue to defend his obnoxious, ignorant, verbally abusive, disrespectful behavior.
    "God help us" as independent, former New York City Mayor Mr. Bloomberg said at the Democratic National Convention, with regard to his bad business practices.

  • Labor cabinet secretary invites local employers to discuss apprenticeships

    By Derrick Ramsey

    Across Kentucky, many employers continue to battle a shortage of skilled tradespeople combined with the challenges of replenishing an aging workforce. Simultaneously, more and more students are considering the most affordable and efficient path to a high-paying career.

  • Statistics show why Kentucky is among the best places to live

    Kentucky received some welcome news last month when a national study found that no state had a smaller gap when comparing the high school graduation rates of students from low- and higher-income families. The average gap across the country stands at 15 percent, but it’s just one percent here in the commonwealth. In fact, our low-income students graduate at a higher rate than the overall national average, something only five other states can say.

  • Girls can

    The Girls on the Run program changed Brianna Mattingly’s life.
    Mattingly, 13, was one of nine girls in Marion County's inaugural class of Girls on the Run at A.C. Glasscock Elementary School in 2011.
    At the time, she was a shy nine-year-old who lacked self-confidence.
    I remember watching her during our Girls on the Run activities and workouts. I could tell she was special, but it was obvious she didn’t believe in herself.

  • Understanding a potential employer’s values

  • Escaping isolation

    For the last six years, my wife and I have lived relatively in seclusion. In Georgia, we were outsiders – people from the North who didn’t know a blessed thing about the South. Never would as far as they were concerned.

  • Back to school safety tips we can all use

    It is a busy time of year for Kentucky families as students get back into the routine of school with many after-school activities, like football and soccer, getting into full gear. I want to wish all the students, teachers and school staff a great year. With each new school year comes great opportunities and chances to achieve new levels of learning and great experience.
