  • Tax myths addressed

    Dear Readers,
    It is likely that moving forward over the next couple of months I will spend a lot of time writing about the Nickel Tax that is now set for election. I feel that it is important to use every opportunity available to me to assure that true facts are being released to the community. In a previous article I stated that it is the responsibility of every voter to know the facts on both sides of every issue. I hope to help with that process as much as possible.

  • Missionaries of secularism target judge

    By Richard Nelson
    A Western Kentucky judge recently landed himself in hot water when the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) threatened a lawsuit over his refusal to perform a secular wedding. Trigg County Judge Executive Hollis Alexander was asked to perform nuptials for a Tennessee couple with an unusual request: they insisted the ceremony have no reference to God, someone Alexander believes is part of every marriage covenant.

  • Graying population presents opportunities, challenges alike

    It’s still a while down the road, but the year 2033 will be a pivotal one for our country, because that’s when U.S. Census Bureau projects there will be more citizens over the age of 65 than under the age of 18.
    It’s not a surprising trend, of course, given the gains we have made in medicine, technology and a greater focus on eating right and exercising. From a historical perspective, however, it’s a relatively new phenomenon. A century ago, less than five percent of our citizens were older than 65; by 2040, they will comprise 20 percent.

  • Kentucky enjoys numerous iconic connections

    When it comes to being home to icons known around the world, few states can compete with Kentucky.
    We have a derby that owns the first Saturday in May; a chicken restaurant chain that has grown from a single location in Corbin to more than 15,000 in 125 nations; and a cave so mammoth that it is longer than the combined lengths of the second- and third-longest on the record books. The six million-plus barrels of bourbon now resting in our warehouses, meanwhile, represent more than 90 percent of the world’s production.
