  • Warrior Transition Battalion Complex meeting needs of soldiers

    TOPIC: Warrior Transition Battalion Complex
    OUR VIEW: Our soldiers deserve the best
     

    Sherry Brinegar will have a constant reminder in her duties at Fort Knox about the recently unveiled Warrior Transition Battalion Complex on post.

    Brinegar is a nurse case manager at the $46 million facility. The complex, which will temporarily house wounded soldiers as they rehabilitate and transition back to active duty or civilian life, is named after her late father.

  • Teaching the tormented to trust

    We go through life being touched daily by our church, our family, our co-workers and we try to support and encourage others. We live by the Golden Rule and work hard in doing the right things.

    Then out of the blue there comes an experience that humbles us. It makes us stop and refocus. It makes us think about our impact and influence on our community. It makes us question our efforts. We wonder if we could and should do more.

    Such an experience has touched my life during the past few months.

    On civil rights

    After reading a letter in Sept. 7’s edition of The News-Enterprise, I feel compelled to write this letter.

This letter is an insult to my intelligence, my memory, my moral convictions and my life’s experience.

    You know how hard it can be to make a promise to one or two people and actually keep it?

    Try being University of Kentucky President Eli Capilouto.

  • Mary Ellen’s story and the history of child protection

    My 10-year-old cat, Hobbes, has a great life. His bowl is always filled with dry food that, according to package copy, is especially blended for a cat his age. Between 5 and 6 p.m. each day, he gets a touch of gourmet canned food. He gets well-kitty vet care and immediate medical attention if he’s not feeling well. He has cat beds near my workstation and my husband’s, yet prefers lounging in our laps or on our paper stacks.
