Today's Opinions

  • Optimize your energy

    If an individual lives in a continual state of stressful emotion, the body systems break down. Patterns of chronic environmental pressures result in ulcers, high blood pressure, neurosis and depression to name a few. Changes take place in the body’s chemical balance resulting in lower brain and organ function. We are each in control of the world we create by the choices we make. Choosing to focus on positive aspects that are self-supportive lead the individual to set boundaries and build harmonious bridges in relationships.

  • Reader troubled by front page photo

    Editor:
    As I perused my anxiously awaited Trimble Banner, my first words upon seeing the picture ‘Sewer Repair’ were “You have got to be kidding!”
    The picture shows Bedford Waste Water Superintendent Jim Hoskins operating a small tractor with a backhoe attachment on an incline. This by itself is not too newsworthy except that the picture shows the R.O.P.S. (Roll Over Protection System) is partially removed and therefore non-functional!

  • Memorial Day a time to remember the debt we owe

    It may not be the official start of the season, but for most of us, the upcoming three-day weekend is when summer arrives.
    This time is about much more than that, of course. More importantly, it’s when our nation pays tribute to those who died defending our country.
    That list now has more than 1.2 million names, about half of which were added during the four years of the Civil War.

  • Miscellaneous musings and random scribbles

    Once again, after going through my column ideas folder of scribbled notes on church bulletins, saved emails and starts of columns I haven’t finished, I’m turning these random bits of miscellany into today’s column.
    I hope some of these thoughts will be helpful to someone reading this.
    * “How could a thorn ever be grace?” That’s from a song, “Strong,” that I heard at a church recently. Thorns hurt, and I was hurting that day.

  • State’s tourism industry loaded with attractions

    Next year, Kentucky’s tourism industry will mark a major milestone when Mammoth Cave celebrates the 200th anniversary of its first commercial tour.
    The world’s longest cave is our country’s second-oldest paid attraction, trailing only Niagara Falls, and it and the surrounding national park have since become a major destination. It draws more than two million visitors a year aboveground, and about a fourth of those tour the sights below.

  • The joy of being a sinner

    Thanks to my daughter, Alison, I’ve been listening to Chris Rosebrough, a Lutheran pastor in North Dakota who has a daily podcast, “Fighting for the Faith.”
    He critiques sermons by a number of superstar Christian pastors and speakers who have become more enamored with themselves than with Jesus. Among other things, Rosebrough points out how they mangle or water down scripture, or ignore it altogether.
