Today's Opinions

  • Coming together to reduce the impact of heroin

     

    What often sets the Northern Kentucky region apart is our willingness to collaborate to solve common problems. When the region was faced with an astounding rise in the number of people addicted to heroin, we came together once again.

     The result was the Northern Kentucky Heroin Impact response group’s plan, “Northern Kentucky’s Collective Response to the Heroin Epidemic,” released in mid-November.

  • The sweetness of Christmas

     

    There’s a smile on my face. It’s Christmas and along with celebrating the birth of Our Lord I will be swarmed by the full load of family this week.  You are welcome to come to my house on Friday as busloads of grandchildren, (all of them), and all the children and in-laws and hopefully you, stuff yourself in my house. Just be forewarned that water closet time may be limited.

  • May peace find you this year

     

    Is it just me or is anyone else surprised by the fact that next week is Christmas.

    Normally by this time of year, I’d have all the presents wrapped, the stockings hung with care and enough decorations spread throughout the house to look like a good, old-fashioned Griswold Christmas, but this year I’m a little behind.

    I guess I could blame it on the fact that Thanksgiving fell late this year and there wasn’t a buffer of a week between November turkey and Christmas frenzy.

  • Council member addresses tax increase

     

    As many of you may know there has been numerous papers displayed throughout the city by Kentucky Liberty Solutions pertaining to the city payroll tax increase. 

  • Fighting against the heroin epidemic

     

    As an emergency medical technician and magistrate working in Grant County, I witness the heroin epidemic to the core. Our county is declining as a healthy population and a reliable workforce because of this disease. 

  • 'Caring For Luke Landrum' team gives thanks to the community

     

    On behalf of the “Caring for Luke Landrum” Team we would like to extend our heartfelt appreciation to the many individuals that showed their support to the Landrum family on Sunday, Oct. 27, 2013 during the spaghetti benefit lunch. 

    The turnout far exceeded our expectations and was a testament to what a wonderful community we live in. We cannot thank everyone enough for their support!

  • 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.

  • Love of movies will never end

     

     

    I am a movie nerd.

    For those who know me well, this admission will come at no surprise.
