Today's Opinions

  • Once upon a time, a city decided to invest in tomorrow

    The city council was divided. Strong feelings were obvious on both sides. At times, the discussion threatened to cross the line from debate to argument.

    The topic was a big ticket expenditure that would commit the city to years and years of debt by spending millions on development of a recreational facility.

    It’s a quality-of-life issue providing unique facilities for the community. But the primary purpose was not hometown needs. Its objective was enhancing tourism, welcoming visitors who would occupy hotel rooms and dine in local restaurants.

  • What role does God play in the God particle's discover?

    The smoke barely had settled from the conclave of cardinal’s announcement that Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio was elected pope, when scientists at the European Organization for Nuclear Research in Geneva, Switzerland, made their own announcement: The so-called “God particle” does indeed exist.

    “Look quick,” my wife told me, directing me to the evening news. “They’ve discovered the ‘God particle.’”

    I was curious: Was it A God Particle? Or The God Particle? Or God in a Particle? Or just God’s Particle?

    Spread the fun

    Instead of saying we’re a great county because the county shares all the fun and excitement, quality of place and quality of life, why not just go ahead and say “Elizabethtown rules and the other cities in the county suck!”

    ISSUE: Animal Control retiree rehired
    OUR VIEW: Decision makes sense on many levels

    When Gerald Foley retired last November after 29 years in government, including 25 years as the supervisor of Hardin County Animal Control, a celebration was held in his honor.

    The primary concern expressed that day: How could the county possibly find someone who matched Foley's talents, experience and demonstrated skills?

    Well, they did it.

    Thank a farmer today

    “If you eat you’re involved in agriculture.” For the last few years, I, as a farmer, have been told to get out and “tell your story.” Bringing wholesome, nutritious food to the nation’s tables is my story.

    In most families, we are now three generations removed from the farm. With this in mind, we need to tell these generations how their food is produced. Food is not produced at Kroger, Wal-Mart or any of the various grocery stores around the country.

  • Thanks to those helping others

    ISSUE: Seeing a need
    OUR VIEW: Hardin County responds

    When there’s an obvious need, Hardin Countians step forward.

    Take, for example, the community baby shower scheduled Wednesday at Pritchard Community Center in Elizabethtown.

    Hats off to talented artist

    Recently I enjoyed reading the front page The News-Enterprise  story about Collin Batson, Elizabethtown High School senior whose artwork decorates the Elizabethtown Alternative Center. The article mentioned that despite his color blindness, Collin’s artistic gifts have led to his acceptance into the Kentucky School of Art at Spalding University.

    Hats off to this gifted young artist and to the teachers who recognized and nurtured his artistic talents.
