Today's Opinions

  • No Black Friday craziness this year


    The madness is over until next year.

    The annual tradition of people trampling over each other to save $3 on a Barbie doll has passed.

    The day that decent people turn into maniacs willing to behead someone even looking at that last X-Box in their hands is no more.

    That’s right, I survived another Black Friday or should I say, Gray Thursday.

    Now, for the most part, my above comments are in jest.

  • 2014 Kiwanis Auction in full swing

      The 2014 Kiwanis Charity Auction is just over four months away with the dates now being announced as Friday, Jan. 31 and Saturday Feb. 1.  The Kiwanis Auction committee is already in action with preliminary efforts to make it an entertaining event.
       The UK basketball game is at 1 p.m. so there won’t be any Auction vs. UK basketball rivalry like last year’s very exciting game.  Keep your UK basketball guests in the warmth of your hospitable home by planning a UK and Auction party.

  • To the greatest man I've ever known



    Five years ago, I met a man who I knew then would forever hold a place in my heart. I knew then that this man was crazy and wild but kind and caring as well. As time went by, this man became my father in so many ways. 

  • Raising taxes doesn't mean raising scores


    The education program exists to support student achievement.

    The local board (school board) represents the community by making sure tax dollars are effectively and efficiently used on behalf of students.
