  • LETTER: Let's race to build a bridge

    To the editor:
    It has taken forever, but I now see light at the end of the tunnel. That is if they burrow under the River Fields land outcroppings instead of over the top!
    In our now-near future I see a great sporting event beginning to unfold.
    With Kentucky slated to build the downtown bridge, and Indiana the East End span, who will be the first to complete their project?
    A competitive sport is one thing that both our states excel in!

  • PUBLISHER: Great communities are informed communities

    The older we get, the more we realize the importance of our parents’ influence upon us. Growing up, a normal evening at the Cotten household included supper at the kitchen table with mom and dad, followed by time to relax.
    At the time, I did not know the repetition of a normal evening would play an important role in a life observation at 46.
    The observation is one of my dad after supper, pulling the arm of his recliner with a squeak and spring locking out the footrest. In his hands would be our local newspaper with a cup of coffee on the end table next to him.

  • GINGER: Electronics have a short life span around our house

    Electronics have a fairly short life span around our house. Just yesterday, I washed an iPod with a load of laundry.

    I heard a clunking sound, so I stopped the washer and tried to sort through the wet laundry. There were two blankets, heavy with water. I figured maybe the clunk was the edge of one slapping around.

    Later, as I was transferring to the dryer, I spotted the iPod. My jaw dropped in surprise, and I quickly devised a plan.

  • MUELLER: Positive energy attracts success

    I recently picked up a copy of the University of Louisville School of Medicine’s geriatrics calendar celebrating the core values of amazing seniors.
    In it, 80-year-old Mary Jane Mullins said: “Accept life on life’s terms; bear its sorrow with patience and savor its joys; love others and yourself; grow spiritually. It’s NOT what you believe, but what you DO that counts!”
    And I loved the whimsical comments from 80-year-old Edward D. Triner who said, “I strive, not for perfection, for anything worth doing is worth doing poorly.

  • LETTER: Please don't kill the birds

    To the editor:
    I just learned of the bird invasion and have a suggestion: the owners of their cars cover their cars with plastic or cloth or whatever else will do the job.
    As for ridding yourselves of the birds, I have no suggestions but please do not allow someone to come in to kill them.
