Today's Opinions

  • Learning at the knee of a century-old pastor

    “You don’t seem like a preacher, at least not a typical one. You’re ‘the real deal.’”

    The comment, coming from an inmate in jail, I took as a compliment, although I frequently ask myself if I’m really real.

    His comment was followed by a question: “How did you ever get to be a preacher in the first place?” (I am tempted to ask: Do you think I should have been something else?)

  • Sharing appreciation

    TOPIC: Goodwill and good times
    OUR VIEW: Delivering some thank yous

    Vote no Tuesday

    On Tuesday, voters in Elizabethtown will make an important decision regarding the future of the city. They can vote no in opposition of expansion of alcohol sales, or yes in favor of bars.

  • Connecting requires some level of cultural relevancy

    The birth of a child represents all levels of hope and possibility to society and to a family. We want the best for them. As a parent or grandparent, there's so much we want to teach these children.

    It starts with basic life skills like walking without tumbling and feeding yourself without painting the walls with Spaghetti-0s. Little rhymes, fairy tales, counting and ABCs soon follow along with how to high five or throw a kiss. Some issues are struggles like managing buttons, zippers and shoelaces.

  • Matters of motivation

    OUR VIEW: Resolutions made, now consider methods

    Across Hardin County and beyond, people are striving to achieve a better version of themselves. Four days into a new year, resolutions are charging ahead, most commonly on a mission to improve health.

    God has been lost

    Because of the massacre in Connecticut, we will be reeling with grief for a very long time. Twenty children and six adults snuffed out in seconds. Unspeakable.

    However, we’ve killed 1 million babies this year; babies who never will get to the first grade in school. We have laws that say that’s our right. Laws that are an abomination to God.
