Today's Opinions

  • Thankfulness in adulthood and childhood

    Pastor Bob Russell writes in his book Jesus, Lord of Your Personality, that having a lot doesn’t tend to produce a grateful spirit.

  • Children who play sports develop better habits
  • Truitt: Riding the rails with grumpy

    Acting in my role of “Mom the Chauffeur,” I hauled my teen daughter to Grand Rapids, Iowa last week for her Rotary Youth Conference. That gave me three days to fill with my six and seven-year-olds, so I was pleasantly surprised to find that Grand Rapids offers a number of family-friendly activities. Our time there was only slightly marred by an old man so cantankerous he made Archie Bunker look like Happy Goodman.

  • Mueller: It’s a whole new ballgame

    On a summer afternoon I was listening to a radio broadcast of a Cincinnati Reds vs. St. Louis Cardinals baseball game. I heard the announcer say, “It’s a brand new ball game.” That meant the score was tied. It’s like starting all over again.

  • Frankfort update: issues take stage in interim

    We are now in the second month of the Interim Period – the time period between June and December during which Interim Joint Committees (IJC) meet and discuss various topics within their respective scopes. I am chairman of the IJC on Transportation and also a member of five others.

  • Letter to the editor July 17

    It is unfortunate that people had an accident and were hurt and killed, but I disagree with my fellow Oldham County residents’ opinions in the article that say the intersection of 53 and Old Sligo Road ‘has become too dangerous.’ That’s ridiculous. It’s no more or less dangerous than it ever was.

  • Earley: When God answers prayer ‘Not yet’

    A pastor thought God gave him an idea and he presented it at the church board meeting. After giving his most impassioned plea and really “selling” the idea, the board voted down the pastor’s proposed changes 12-1. The head elder looked at the pastor and said, “Well pastor, its 12 votes to 1. It looks like you’ve been outvoted and it is time to go home. Will you please close in prayer?”

  • Recipients of Trent DiGuiro scholarship named

    Twenty years ago this month, our son Trent was murdered as he sat celebrating his 21st birthday on his front porch in Lexington. The aftermath of such tragedy was, as you can imagine, devastating to our family, but it was also devastating to our local community.

    Because Trent was a University of Kentucky football player and that the crime went unsolved for so long; this case played out over the following 20 years with many twists and turns, even making the local and national news as recently as last month.
