  • Better Business Bureau: Beware of utility scam

    Better Business Bureau is warning homeowners and business owners of a bill payment scam targeting utility customers.

    In honor of November being Prematurity Awareness Month, it is important for us all to remember that healthy babies are worth the wait. As a doctor who delivers babies in Elizabethtown, I see many pregnant women who are a few weeks from a full-term pregnancy and are feeling really uncomfortable. Some are ready to schedule a delivery by induction or cesarean section before they have reached their 39th or 40th week of pregnancy.

  • Tax reform: Time to fish or cut bait

     As Congress moves forward on budget negotiations, the word out of Washington is to expect nothing major: no grand bargain, just more stopgap, short-term fixes.

    Yet there’s one ray of hope. The House and Senate chairs of the tax-writing committees — one a Republican, the other a Democrat — are preparing a comprehensive tax reform plan. They see the budget negotiations as their opportunity to enact much-needed changes to our bloated, off-kilter tax laws.

  • Thanks to readers who influenced decisions on new comics

    Based on the very nature of our product, it changes every day. The news is different, advertising messages change, classifieds come and go as help wanted positions are filled, yard sales are conducted, vehicles sold and apartments rented.

    Formatted features might appear in the same place every day but the data changes whether its a weather forecast on Page A2, the obituaries on Page A4 or the Opinion page here on Page A6.

    But the comics are the comics.

  • Don’t let extremists, unnecessary laws stymie pipeline

    No one is a more ardent supporter of private-property rights than this columnist.

    I once teamed up with former Bowling Green City Commissioner and Western Kentucky economics professor Brian Strow to debate former Bowling Green Mayor Elaine Walker and Kentucky League of Cities lawyer Bill Thielen on the government’s use of eminent domain before energetic students at Western Kentucky University.

    ‘Where’s the beef?’

    Reading last week’s headline article about Bill Bennett’s campaign violations made me feel like asking, “Where’s the beef?”
