Today's Opinions

  • Not my hotel room

    When I graduated with a degree in journalism back in 2009, it wasn’t exactly my dream to be loading and unloading trucks full of Pepsi bottles and shelving them in coolers throughout Western Kentucky’s gas stations and grocery stores. The pay was terrible and the hours were long. It didn’t help that everyone I worked with was actively looking for a way out.
    I spent whatever free time I had sending resume-after-resume to just about any newspaper that was hiring. It didn’t matter how far away.

  • ‘Sharks’ to host business pitch contest for veterans

    If you are a veteran, transitioning service member or military spouse and have an idea for a new product or service, get ready to pitch your business to the Sharks of the Heartland.

  • Turn out for Terry

  • Higdon endorses Rand Paul

    I’m writing to endorse Senator Rand Paul for U.S. Senate and ask that you consider voting for him on Nov. 8.

Whether it’s been his fight against over-reaching federal regulations that harm our farmers and business owners, his defense of our Second Amendment Right to bear arms, or simply wanting to cut government waste and over-spending, on the issues, Rand has been solid.

  • Times are changing

    Change is inevitable.
    Change can be difficult.
    Change can also be a very good thing.
    But, there is a certain comfort in keeping things the same. It’s a paradox, really. Many are resistant to change, but change is the only way we can grow, the only way we can advance.
    And there is one inevitable truth: change happens whether we want it to or not.
    Take Marion County Public Schools, for instance.

  • Cents and sensibility – advice from the taxman

    By Harry VanWhy

    A couple of weeks ago my granddaughter Vanessa invited me to have lunch with her for book fair week at Glasscock Elementary School. I was very proud that she wanted me to visit her at her school (even though I knew the purpose was to buy her a new book from the book fair!) During my visit there however it became quite apparent to me how badly her school needed some repair and maintenance attention.

  • We want the best for our children

    By Kurt and Amy Mattingly

    We are Marion County, born and raised. We are products of the Marion County schools and community. We moved away for a brief period to obtain degrees, then returned home to marry, work and raise a family. We believe in Marion County for our futures, for our schools, and for our children. Now it’s Marion County’s turn to believe in us.
