Today's Opinions

  • Phantoms and mirror magic

    A month or so ago, I met a man with part of his right arm missing -- he was a tree trimmer and had an accident involving a chain saw.

    I asked him if the missing part ever hurt. He said as a matter of fact, it was bothering him as we were talking.

  • Reader displeased with Trimble education

    Editor:

    I am never surprised with the 90 percent of the elected that serves we the people of Trimble County. Keep in mind I mean this with kindness of heart for most, not all, do a very good service they are elected to do for the great people that live here.

  • Quality care helps people feel better

    Editor:

    This year I celebrated my tenth year of providing OB/GYN care to those in our community and surrounding counties. I chose to practice in La Grange because the community was similar to the small town in which I was raised in eastern Kentucky. My goal was to bring quality care from the “city” to our community so our residents didn’t have to drive to town for excellent care.

  • 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?

  • JCTC Trimble County Adult Education Program earns Proficient Rating

    Editor:

    JCTC Trimble County Adult Education has been officially awarded a Proficient Rating by Kentucky Adult Education qualifying the program for student performance funding.

  • 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.
