Today's Opinions

  • Prayer changes things

    Last week I wrote a little bit about the prayer week at my church.
    I had committed to go every morning and pray for 30 minutes about a certain particular situation. Here are some of my observations from each day:
    Day 1: Well, I did it. I actually prayed for a half hour. As I was praying, I thought about the wind and that Jesus said the Holy Spirit, like the wind, blows where it wills.

  • Home for the Holidays: Is your car up for the journey?

    Editor:
    Before packing up the car to head home for the holidays, make sure your vehicle is ready for the journey. Conducting a thorough vehicle inspection will help avoid the inconvenience and potential safety hazards of breaking down miles away from home.

  • Coal-fired power plants creating breathing problems

    Editor:
    I mean to write this before the election. The ads saying Obama wanted to put coal miners out of a job, that’s not what he meant. Coal is a very dirty pollutant. That’s why the EPA has required coal-fired power plants have had to put in scrubbers to clean what goes into the air cleaner.

  • General Assembly to address issues in 2015 session

    A few weeks from now, the General Assembly will return to the Capitol as it does each January to begin a new legislative session.
    Since this will take place in an odd-numbered year, it will only last for 30 working days, and the first four of those will be dedicated to electing House and Senate leaders and establishing most of the chambers’ committees for the next two years. Bills and resolutions will be considered in February and March, but the state’s budget will not be one of them, since that is completed in even-numbered years.

  • Anatomy of an apology

    The Huffington Post online site posts a “cute kid note of the day.”
    One of the most popular notes is called “I Am Sorry Ben.” It goes:
    I am sorry Ben. I didn’t mean to hurt you. I feel like crap.
    I love you and I was trying to hit Chris. I hate my choice I made. I rally (sic) hope you except (sic) my apollogee (sic). When I throo (sic) the sizzors (sic) I was aiming for Chris. I hope you start to feel better soon.

  • The trip(s) to bountiful

    Editor:
    It’s the journey. Not the destination. For sure.

  • Kentucky a leader among states in historic preservation

    When it comes to keeping history alive, few states can match Kentucky.
    The Kentucky Historical Society, for example, will celebrate its 180th birthday in 2016, the same year our country will mark the 50th anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act. That legislation kicked off the modern era of protecting and promoting the hundreds of thousands of artifacts and sites that, collectively, tell the story of who we are.
