    TOPIC: Olympic Games
    OUR VIEW: What's not to love?

    Why do you love the Olympic Games?

    Is it because, for many of these sports, we rarely see them on television aside from every four years?

    Admit it, you really don't see gymnastics on TV much and when you do, it certainly rarely is as captivating as it is when an Olympic medal is on the line if the gymnast can stick a landing.

    In response to previous letter

    The writer of the Aug. 7 letter who opposes Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy’s stance on same-sex marriage felt the need to reference the Bible to support her argument. I have to reply to the biblical misconceptions in her letter. She  repeats the tired, old, liberal secularist argument the homosexual lifestyle should not be forbidden in Christianity because, to use her words, “Jesus never said anything about gays.”

  • Officials bow out of political kick off

    ISSUE: Fancy Farm
    OUR VIEW: There's value in tradition

    Each year, thousands flock to Graves County in Western Kentucky for the annual Fancy Farm picnic, where political speeches have been a centerpiece for years.

    The event, often called the most important political event in Kentucky, long has been the state’s kick off to the fall campaign season as elected officials take the stage to rile up an already-energetic crowd.

    This year, not so much.

  • Standing up for free expression

    Regardless of any impact on sales, Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy told a Christian media outlet he “supported the biblical definition of the family unit” and started a controversy that has yet to end.

    The U.S. Constitution protects our individual right to freedom of speech and also protects us from any government enacting laws that prohibit that right.

    Be compelled to do more

    Kudos to Jody Ingalls for her clear and compelling letter defending Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy’s support of “the Biblical definition of a family” (Support Chick-fil-A, July 29). It has been encouraging and impressive to see what a powerful response his remarks have received.

    THE ISSUE: Back to School
    OUR VIEW: New year is a fresh start

    A box of perfectly pointed crayons, a pristine backpack, a clean locker, a hair cut and a carefully planned outfit laid out the night before. All these things are icons of a new school year.

    They are fresh, untarnished and full of promise. So is the school year itself.

    Today, thousands of students head back to class as Hardin County Schools open the 2012-13 school year. Elizabethtown Independent Schools resumed Tuesday.
