Today's Opinions

  • ‘A time to mourn...’

  • Forgiveness and ‘forgetness’

    (Editor's note: A Chronicle reader requested that we reprint this column that first ran in July 2004. It’s a good one, so here goes.)

    Several weeks ago, a friend and I were talking about ghosts in closets -- things that people say they’ve forgiven and forgotten, but they really haven’t.

  • Compassion

    Compassion is defined as caring about the suffering and needs of others. If we want to live in a world of kindness and compassion, we must also walk the talk. This trait  must be created inside ourselves and be demonstrated by our outward acts. We are each challenged to examine our own behavior and thoughts. We need to control our response to external events, actions and opinions of others in order to build compassion for what  motivates their behavior. Compassion starts with being able to understand where the other person is coming from.

  • Banquet promises to be an evening of laughs and memories

    Alas, the final planning meeting for this weekend’s Trimble County Alumni banquet came and went last Saturday with one solitary soul in attendance--me.

  • Game of thrones

    It’s no surprise to people who know me that I am not a fancy Nancy.

    I’m not plain, and I am (I hope) feminine, but I’m definitely not lacy, doily, flowery foo-foo.

    I’m so not a princess.

    That said, I’m constantly getting invited to women’s events that border on the fancy. This past weekend, I was with a group of women at a nearby Victorian hotel, which has fancy in its very structure.

  • Oldham attorney lends support to Baxter for Commonwealth Atty.

    Editor:

    In the Sept. 27 edition of The Oldham Era, a candidate for Commonwealth Attorney ran an ad regarding local attorneys’ support of Courtney Baxter for Commonwealth Attorney. The candidate asks, in his ad, “What do they expect to receive in return?” As past-president and 30-year member of the local bar association, the former head of the Public Defenders Office, contributing member of the committee that wrote the local rules for civil and criminal practice, and Courtney Baxter supporter, I can answer that question.

    We expect:

  • Adkins supporter views 4th Congressional race

    Editor:

    The decision you make on who will represent us from the 4th Congressional District is very, very important. Bill Adkins is for 100 percent of the 4th and Kentucky. His opponent, Thomas Massie, is for special interest throughout the U.S. and ignoring you and me.

    I have checked both web sites. Bill Adkins’ top priorities listed are to fight for jobs, seniors, the middle class and veterans. Thomas Massie wants to cut everything (even funding for libraries) and says nothing about seniors, the middle class or veterans.

  • Writer throws support behind Justice Scott

    Editor:

    I am worried about the state of our nation. I am fearful for my childrens' future. Every day “pop culture” mocks our country’s history and the values America was founded on. News organizations, “think tanks” and the ivory towers of America’s universities are asking “is the constitution still relevant?” Why is this happening? It is a leadership problem.
