Today's Opinions

  • Both sides of aisle should be commended on their behavior

    To borrow an old sports clique, there have been times over the years that one may have attended a hockey game and a Shepherdsville City Council meeting broke out.

    When you have emotional topics such as alcohol sales and adult entertainment, the discussions can get quite heated.

    On Monday night, the issue of Sunday alcohol sales was on the agenda.

    With a packed crowd, 13 individuals chose to speak to the council.

    Each speaker did an excellent job presenting their points. And the audience listened to each one.

  • Senate agrees that state needs to look for education funding

         FRANKFORT - The Senate is moving forward through the 2010 Regular Session as committee meetings are now in full swing and the Senate has begun debating bills concerning education and state government.

         Educating the next generation is one of the most important issues we address in the state legislature and an area in which the Senate has provided leadership in the past sessions.

  • People have opportunity to voice opinions in annual poll

    Each year I prepare a questionnaire so that people can voice their opinions on matters that might come before the General Assembly. As previously reported, the number of responses this year was very high.

        FRANKFORT - One of the most lasting traditions in Kentucky history is the now-annual “State of the Commonwealth” speech that the governor gives in early January to the General Assembly and, thanks to KET, a statewide audience.

        On Wednesday, Governor Steve Beshear kept that tradition alive with remarks that reflected recent successes the state has had - and the challenges we face in the next two years.

  • Thanks for the great experiences

    As the world welcomes in a new decade, I, too, am closing out a personal decade in my life and welcoming in a new one.

    The new one is going to be quite different for me and will undoubtedly involve lots of dirty diapers, sleepless nights and pureed sweet potatoes, but I couldn’t be more excited about it.

    By the time you read this my husband, one-year-old daughter and I might have already welcomed our newest little family member ee" Noah Bilger ee" into the world. His official due date is tomorrow, but newborns tend not to follow exact dates and times.
