Today's Opinions

  • Passive violence


    Years and years ago, I knew an adult that was extremely difficult to work with. 

    They had a tongue like a bullwhip and would lash out at anyone and everyone that remotely “offended” them in any way, shape or form whether the “offender” meant to or not.

  • Male breast cancer awareness

    By Louise Yates

  • Help us shed light on child abuse

     

  • Me and Jesse win big

     

    A few months back, Jesse Osbourne gave me a call and asked if I had ever submitted my columns to the Kentucky Press Association’s “Excellence in Kentucky Newspapers” competition.

  • Tennessee coach still giving despite fighting dreaded disease


    This was one time I wish I had missed the press conference.

    It is usually a perk when I have the opportunity to work a major college athletic event. It’s a time when you get to talk with those highly-paid coaches and some players whose earnings will someday make those coaches comparative paupers.
    And, being in the newspaper business, it is always a chance to hobnob with the local – and occasionally the national – heavyweights in the field.
    I won’t lie. It’s a lot of fun.

  • Changing patterns


    Tom, our black lab dog, exploded from his bed on the front porch after midnight in a frenzy of excited barking. 

    The coyote pack on the hill, responding to some unknown signal, were in full chorus.  Wild high-pitched yells echoed back and forth under the winter wolf moon, then stopped as abruptly as it started.
