  • Kentucky’s new test scores attracting national interest

    Over the last two decades, Kentucky has built a national reputation for its willingness to blaze new paths when it comes to education.  Early this month, we took another major step forward with the release of the latest round of school accountability scores.

  • Welcome to my demise

    Recently, I had a raging flare up of my chronic, terminal hypochondria.

    It always hits on a Friday after regular doctors’ and dentists’ hours are over, which only increases the intensity of the flare up.

    I’ve died many times from hypochondria, if only in my mind.

    This recent attack came as a result of using too many new dental hygiene products at once. I had seen a commercial that warned: If you’re not whitening your teeth, you’re yellowing them.

    Sounds ominous, right?

  • Veterans Day a time of tribute to those who served

    For most of us, Veterans Day has always been a time set aside to honor all who served their country, no matter when that may have been. The holiday’s early history, however, was much more specific.

    It began in 1919, on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month -- the exact one-year anniversary of the end of World War I.  President Woodrow Wilson called it Armistice Day, a term some still use today, and commemorating that conflict remained the day’s focus for more than 30 years.

  • Family feuds: It’s never over

    For those keeping an eye on the calendar, Election Day is almost here and the feuding is almost over.
    Except it won’t be over. It’s never over.

    Last week I attended a political forum, sponsored by the Chronicle. Held at the local college, the room overflowed with venom and vitriol and people who weren’t just pro-their candidate, but anti-the other person.

    Is it even possible to be pro-someone without being anti-the other person? Just asking.

  • Courtney Tigue Baxter best choice to protect our community

    Editor:

    When campaigning for Campbellsburg Mayor two years ago, my primary concern was the safety and welfare of city residents.  As Mayor, I have worked with citizens, local law enforcement, and the court system to protect individuals and their property.  Keeping our community safe is and will always be of the utmost concern to me.  This is why I feel compelled to endorse Courtney Tigue Baxter for Commonwealth’s Attorney 12th Judicial Circuit that serves Henry, Trimble and Oldham Counties.

  • Writer advocates vote for Bill Adkins

    Editor:

    Bill Adkins, who is running in the 4th Congressional District, believes the middle class has long been under assault by special interests. Middle class citizens do not have paid lobbyists protecting them—billion dollar corporations do. Without a strong middle class, the nation cannot survive. Bill Adkins will work for solutions to help defend and rebuild the middle class.
