Today's Opinions

  • LETTER: Don’t throw NASCAR under the bus

    To the editor:
    As an avid NASCAR fan and veteran of several trips to various venues for Cup races, I would like to offer some positives about the events at Ky. Speedway.  

  • LETTER: PVA’s budget comes from your pocket

    To the editor:

    During my unsuccessful campaign (only 406 votes short!) for Property Valuation Administrator, in late 2009 I began an earnest compilation of various documents from the office of Ron Winters, PVA.
    Originally, my goal was to learn more about the operations of that office so I would be prepared for campaign questions.

  • LETTER: Mistrial is a disappointment 
for victim’s family

    To the editor:
    Losing a son or daughter from death is the worst kind of pain you can ever go through, but to lose them by gunshots is horrifying. I lost my oldest son Feb. 1, 2009. It has taken the life right out of my family and me.
    The La Grange Police made an arrest in three days after my son’s death.

  • LETTER: Justice delayed by mistrial

    To the editor:
    On February 1, 2009, my step-son was killed in La Grange. Here it is July 28, 2011 and this case has never come to trial. My wife and I have been to court in La Grange over 40 times in the past two and a half years.
    It seems that once the case was to come to trial the judge, Karen Conrad, declared it a mistrial and laid it over until March 2012.

  • COLUMN: The American dream is alive and well

    He’s the embodiment of the American Dream. Poor, handicapped, immigrant, yet through established principles has risen to the top in his field. His name is Dennis Ogbe.

    Dennis was the featured speaker at a Rotary meeting I attended not long ago. Whereas history is full of examples like his, it was great to hear and see one up close.

  • COLUMN: Standing on a firm foundation this fourth of July

    Is He a part or is He not? Was He ever a part of U.S. history, or was He never mentioned?
    A recent flap over NBC’s intentional omission of the words “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance during the U.S. Open brought to the fore once again the debate over whether any reference to God should be part of the public discourse.

  • LETTER: EMS employees want best care for residents

    To the editor:
    As employees of Oldham County EMS, we feel we’ve been unfairly portrayed recently by various media outlets as complaint-driven individuals who are resisting any change within OCEMS.

  • MUELLER: Giving comes first

    After we are born, we develop the basic flaw of self-centeredness. We think the world revolves around us and everyone else is here to make us comfortable and happy.
    First, we get all our needs taken care of and then we start getting things from these people.
