  • So, this is 30

    When you’re a kid, you have this vision of what being an adult is like. Anyone older than 20 looks ancient. Anyone older than 40 has to be a grandparent. Then, when you actually become an adult, you start to wonder if you missed the switch somehow.
    At what point did I stop being a kid and start being an adult?

  • Higdon puts politics ahead of middle class

    I'm writing to express my disappointment with Senator Higdon's support of the Right to Work bill. I'm in complete agreement with Vincent Ballard's letter of Jan. 11, but I can't say I'm surprised by Sen. Higdon's action. After all, that is what Republicans do, putting party politics ahead of the interests of the middle class. Kentucky will now join the likes of Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, Arkansas and Louisiana in a race to the bottom thanks to our governor, senate and congress.

  • When workers want to live here, so do job creators

    By Carole Logsdon

    Have you heard the news? The Lincoln Trail Region is getting a new multiplex. You will no longer have to travel to larger metropolitan areas to catch a show in a modern, state of the art theater. It will create jobs and is certainly economic development activity, but in addition to that, this theater will enhance our region’s quality of place.

  • Historical, productive week in Frankfort

    By State Rep. Brandon Reed
     
    For the first time since 1921, Republicans took control of the Kentucky House of Representatives, making our first week back to Frankfort a historic one. We have been hard at work doing exactly what the voters of Kentucky sent us to Frankfort to accomplish. The result of this was an extremely productive first week of the 2017 session, in which priority bills to improve the economy, protect life, and make government more accountable passed through the General Assembly.

  • Corrected vision

    When I was younger, I had to rely on glasses. It was so bad that I couldn’t see three feet in front of my face. Colors merged together like a Jackson Pollack painting. You could forget road signs, heck, you could forget the dashboard clock for that matter. Without my glasses, I was pretty much useless.

  • Be more kind

    Sometimes the smallest expression or act of kindness can literally save a life.
    Sunday I was watching one of my favorite shows, CBS Sunday Morning, and there was a story about an 82-year-old widower in Georgia whose life was changed by a little girl at a grocery store. Her innocent, loving expression of kindness gave him a reason to live again.
    Dan Peterson fell into a deep depression after his wife, Mary, died. He admitted that after her death, he was just waiting to die.
    Until he met Nora Wood.

  • Letter to the editor: Higdon’s Right to Work vote is a slap in the face

    To say that your recent vote to approve for Right to Work and prevailing wage legislation is disheartening would be an understatement. Your vote was a figurative slap in the face of the hard working people you have sworn to represent. Instead of standing up for the men and women of your district, and state, you chose to follow party lines. It’s as if you forgot how many in your district work at union shops. Ones like the distilleries, Ford, G.E. and construction companies.
