  • Great expectations

    ISSUE: New Year is here
    OUR VIEW: Keep momentum going

    Year’s end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us. — Hal Borland

  • Brisk beer business reminds us to be responsible

    TOPIC: Beer sales
    OUR VIEW: With sales comes immense responsibility
    Store owners who have been selling beer the last few weeks use terms such as “brisk,” “steady” and “good” to describe sales.
    Beer is in coolers and in aisles. Signs occupy store fronts and decorate cooler windows.
    Alcohol is for sale, or soon will be, in Elizabethtown, Radcliff and Vine Grove. An overwhelming October vote sent businesses scurrying for licenses.

  • Food bank makes notable advances

    ISSUE: Feeding America's leadership change
    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.

  • Connecting the dots

    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.

  • Honorable actions

    ISSUE: Helping some, honoring others
    OUR VIEW: All deserve kudos

  • 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.
