Today's Opinions

  • Faith in God vs. faith in faith

    I recently watched an episode of “Our America with Lisa Ling” about a faith healing ministry in Fort Mill, S.C.

    Ling, a television journalist, took a camera crew to document the very Pentecostal healing meetings to which hundreds of people came, some traveling hundreds of miles.

    Two sisters came with their mother who had terminal cancer, as did Steve, a man in a wheelchair, paralyzed from the waist down.

  • Trimble County Search & Rescue Unit

    Editor:

    A lot of people don’t know who we are and what we do. We are there if you need us to be. The Trimble County Emergency Search Unit is a group of wonderful skilled and trained volunteers that help to find lost and missing persons and that’s why I joined the team three years ago. I am a single mother of three, very proud of them all and I try to make them proud of me in all I do now. I am very glad this unit is there if I ever need them to be called upon to find my children if they ever wondered off.

  • Many topics on General Assembly’s 2012 agenda

    When the General Assembly opens the 2012 Regular Session in early January, there is no doubt what the top issue will be: enacting the state’s budget for the next two years.  Redrawing state House, Senate and congressional districts, something done after each Census, will likely be prominent as well, especially in the session’s opening weeks.

  • Eight week self-improvement

    As the New Year approaches, it is a time of Autumn Harvest and a closure of the last quarter of 2011. As winter approaches, it provides the opportunity to review and contemplate our relationships and our interactions. This is a season of ‘bringing together loose ends’ in our lives. It is a time to start looking objectively so that in January we can implement new resolutions.

    Here is a Eight Week Self-Improvement Program to guide introspection of your communication skills with yourself and with others. The goal is to enhance your quality of life.

  • Sacraments for sinners

    Last week my friend Mike got baptized.

    As the only adult being baptized, he was upstaged by some cute little kids and a baby, but he still shined.

    We baptize babies and grownups at my church because we believe baptism is not so much us declaring our commitment to follow Jesus, but it’s our declaration that we’re in desperate need of his cleansing.

    It’s one of two sacraments we celebrate, the other one being communion.

  • Emergency Management Agency

  • Veterans’ benefits in Kentucky topped $1.7 billion in 2010

    Veterans Day is always a special time for our country, but it promises to be even more memorable on Friday because of its location on the calendar.

    That’s because, for the first time ever, the year aligns perfectly with the holiday’s specific time of remembrance. It will be another century before anyone else can pause to honor those who have served our country on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of the eleventh year.

  • Reader expresses thanks to magistrate

    Editor:

    I want to thank Nolan Hamilton for taking a stand against the sale of wine on Sundays. I regret that it is legal at all in the County but as it is I ask the Magistrates and the Judge to vote against this ordinance.

    Again thank you Nolan for the stand you took and keep up the good work.
