  • Congratulations on surpassing 2010 United Way fundraising

    ISSUE: United Way surpasses previous campaign giving total
    OUR VIEW: Time remains for everyone to get involved

  • Saying goodbye and thanks to Gatewood Galbraith

    ISSUE: The passing of a Kentucky original
    OUR VIEW: Remember his passion and caring 

    Saying Gatewood Galbraith was an interesting man is like saying if the economy were better more people would be employed. At an absolute minimum, Gatewood was interesting but he also was much more.

    Revisiting alcohol
    What a mess! Alcohol brings conflict of interest by some and economic hardship for others.
    The election was wrong. It should be declared illegal for three cities to decide this issue, which will affect all of Hardin County.
    Concerning “economic hardships” for some restaurants: If enough would identify as “family restaurants – no alcohol allowed,” the economic hardship matter may be resolved quickly.

  • Trying to stand without keystone

    ISSUE: Death of Bob Imel
    OUR VIEW: Foundations are hard to replace

    Bob Imel's life was one of serving and his impact in Hardin County has been felt for years and will be for many years to come.

    Imel died Dec. 30 in Bowling Green. He was 71.

    He was the first executive director of Hardin County Habitat for Humanity. He was part of the foundation for the organization that stands tall today in building and repairing homes in the area.

    Truth vs. race games
    As I stated before, we need to be careful and not let our emotions and sterotypes dictate what we see as truth. There is so much I can bring out about former Sen. Rick Santorum’s statements.

  • Calendar of photos emphasizes daily value of the unit

    The New Year already has flown, leaving its newborn status lying flat in the nest.

    And I’m left with all these extra calendars — two from local businesses, two from churches which somehow think I will be interested in adding their agenda to my schedule and another complimentary calendar from a company wanting me to buy calendars to give people next year, assuming, I suppose, that I somehow believe others will be interested in my agenda next year.

    But I like the pictures on these calendars, anyway.

    Discriminatory policy?
    With the recent start of alcohol sales in Hardin County, I have seen some very disturbing signs of racism at the places where it will be sold.
    In every store offering beer or other alcoholic beverages, you can see signs which clearly state, “No alcohol sold without a photo ID.” This is clearly an effort by the Democrat-controlled Commonwealth of Kentucky to suppress alcohol sales to minorities, the elderly, students and other groups.

  • When alone time becomes uncomfortable

    The house never seems more empty than after the holidays.

    All the Christmas clutter is gone and decorations stowed again on basement shelves. But that doesn't account for the emotional emptiness.

    The kids and grandkids also are gone. Somehow, an after-holiday home seems a lot less homey.

    As a person who always has cherished "alone time," it's surprising to realize how quickly solitude can swell into sorrow. Why does being alone sound so inviting when a shade too much of it is so very lonely?
