  • Sept. 30, 2010 Editorial: Goal does not exceed reach


    Up until the last few years, the United Way of Central Kentucky has made $1 million its annual giving goal.

    On classification

    According to a recent letter, there is no problem with Elizabethtown operating as a fourth- class city and as such impose a restaurant tax.

    Simplistic thinking

    I was saddend, but not surprised by some of the vehement attacks on a recent Senior Life column (“White lies of caregiving,” Sept. 13). What is it that drives people to have such a simplistic outlook on complex issues? How does one look into a world of color and see only black and white with no shades of gray? Even color blind people see shades of gray. Complex decision making often requires weighing one value against another.
