    OUR VIEW: Program's success is praiseworthy

    Gary Miles says he feels it’s time to slow down a bit, relax and enjoy his other life interests. After more than 13 years as executive director of Feeding America, Kentucky’s Heartland, Miles retires Jan. 1 and will pass along the reigns of leadership at the food bank.

    Republicans caved
    By agreeing with President  Barack Obama and the Democrats on extending the payroll tax cut, Republicans have hurt senior citizens and all future recipients of Social Security.  If they wanted to dish out a tax cut of 2 percent, it should have come from federal income taxes, not our Social Security trust fund.  This so-called tax cut resulted in a decrease in our Social Security trust fund of more than $100 billion in 2011 and now they want to extend these reductions into 2012.

    Real hero identified
    I’d just like to comment on the Dec. 23 editorial, “Success attracts detractors.”
    Your editorial was spot on except for one thing. I agree that Tim Tebow is an excellent role model but I disagree with him being a hero. If an example of a hero is needed, then look to the column just below about U.S. Marine Corps Maj. Megan McClung.

  • A jar filled with memories and love

    One gift remained under the tree.

    I hadn’t noticed that the box had been pushed into a corner, intentionally set aside as the last to be opened. The significance was lost on me, even after Mom shoved it in my direction.

    Christmas always had been special in my parents’ home. They sacrificed to make it that way.

  • Another earth, another year: Why not another you?

    Scientists have discovered another earth. Well, sort of.

    Earlier this month, NASA’s Kepler space telescope team announced the discovery of Kepler-22b located in what is called a “habitable zone,” meaning an environment that’s not too hot or too cold for the possibility of life. And just last week, the team unveiled two other earth-sized planets, Kepler-20e and Kepler-20f, although they are not in the habitable zone.
