    All Propaganda?

    ISSUE: Derby time is here
    OUR VIEW:
    You can’t be too careful

    The 139th running of the Kentucky Derby will provide another shining moment in our state’s history. It is so much more than just a horse race. It truly is Kentucky’s opportunity to showcase all it represents.

  • How politics has changed

    When two senators recently got into a spat over whether the Boston Marathon bombings were being politicized, the news was everywhere within minutes. Reams of commentary quickly followed.

    In the maneuvering over gun-control legislation, every twist and turn was reported instantly and then endlessly debated.

    HMH a treasure

    I would like to make a special comment about Hardin Memorial Hospital.

    I was admitted to the hospital for different surgeries. I received outstanding service from the staff to the surgeon for my excellent care and recovery.

    It is comforting to have such a good service provider at HMH.

  • Take action for those with special needs

    OUR VIEW: Thanks to all
