Today's Opinions

  • Suddenly springing into summer

    Spring is upon us in Kentucky. It is a time of celebration with Mother’s Day festivities wrapping up, graduation ceremonies and Memorial Day around the corner.

    This month is also Lyme Disease Awareness Month, and I encourage you to participate in the many events being held around the Commonwealth to raise awareness for this condition. LymeDisease.org has developed a Lyme Disease symptom checklist to help you document your exposure to Lyme Disease and common symptoms.

  • Full transparency

    In today’s political climate, government agencies should be going out of their way to be completely transparent.

    Last week, the Marion County Board of Education chose not to when they held a budget work session at noon on a Monday and chose not to record their discussion.

    I specifically asked for the work session to be recorded. 

  • Where was State Rep. Brandon Reed?

    Where was State Rep. Brandon Reed?

    There was a great crowd in Bradfordsville on May 1 for the candidates forum, standing room only.

    All the candidates were present except two, Stephanie Compton, who had a family emergency and sent her regrets. Where was State Rep. Brandon Reed? No one saw or heard a word from him, although he was invited.

  • Prom problems
  • LTADD marks 50 years of strengthening communities

    We have a great deal to be proud of in the Lincoln Trail Region. Our economy is strong. Our communities are regularly recognized on the national stage for any number of things – tops in start-ups, among the safest, a great place to do business, an ideal spot to retire, and much more. 

  • Road plan update, honoring teachers and state employees

    One of the most important functions of my job as your state representative is to fight for funding for key road and bridge projects in our communities.

  • Men and women of honor

    We hear so much bad news at times that it crowds out the good. We begin to think there are no honorable people going out of their way to make our communities a better place to live in and to be proud of. You would be wrong to feel that way. There are good people and organizations still out there. One such group is called the Marion County Veterans Honor Guard.

    Today I want to tell you about these honorable men and women.
