Today's Opinions

  • Aged stories get some closure with mixed results

     Time goes quickly…most of the time.

    If you are around long enough, you have the opportunity to witness a lot of things.

    Unfortunately, there is seldom anything positive that results from these long term events.

    The most notable example is the latest resolution of the Jessica Dishon murder.

    In looking around the pool of reporters sitting in the jury box during the final sentencing of Stanley Dishon, I realized that I may have been the lone media person who covered the events from the very first day of the search.

  • Letter to Editor

    Dear Editor,

    Nearly 240 years ago, our founding fathers declared our national independence from Great Britain. This 4th of July, let's declare our independence from the meat industry.

    More than 60 percent of U.S. agricultural subsidies pay for meat, dairy, and egg production. Fresh fruit and vegetable farmers receive less than one percent of the total. It's time to declare our independence by stopping these subsidies.

  • Take safety precautions with fireworks to help avoid eye injury

    FRANKFORT – Fireworks are a tradition that go hand-in-hand with the Fourth of July.

     

    But all too often, that tradition can lead to injury. That’s why the Kentucky Optometric Association is urging families to take precautions to protect themselves and their children against the potential dangers of fireworks.

  • Christopher Jones’ family thanks Hebron Middle

     The family of Christopher Jones would like to thank the Hebron Middle School students and teachers for the outpouring of love, respect and sympathy exhibited after Christopher’s death.

    We were awed, amazed and astounded by all of the visitors to the funeral home, the flowers, the balloons released, the stories, the cards, the chimes, the bench, the throw, the scrolls and kind words.

    The money collected by Christopher’s classmates will be used to purchase a tree and memorial plaque for his gravesite.

  • Need new ideas

     Thank you for your coverage of the statewide candidates meeting.

    The overview provided by The Pioneer News was  helpful to those of use who could not attend.

    The candidates all sounded as if they rode in together on the same tired horse and I am less sorry I missed it.

    Their messages echoed the great Quincy Adams Flagstaff (Groucho Marx) in the movie Horsefeathers…

    “I don’t care what they have to say

    it makes no difference any way

    Whatever it is

    I’m against it.
