Today's Opinions

  • Let's get ready for an electcion!

    I don’t want to alarm you or interrupt your daily Rep. Anthony Weiner twitter updates but while you were watching the jabs taken by the Democrats over Sarah Palin’s recount of Paul Revere’s famous ride and the Republicans rip Obama on any topic under the sun, we had a primary election in Kentucky.
    It’s been almost a month now that the election took place but I thought it was probably a good idea to mention it since only around 10 percent of the voters even bothered to head to the polls in May.

  • Les Miserables

    A soul for a piece of bread. Misery makes the offer; society accepts.
    Quote from Les Miserables

    I must sound like a broken record, but something really unique and breathtaking is happening down at the Opera House. I’m talking about the performances being put on by The Central Kentucky Community Theatre Group.

  • The Rapture Racket: Cashing in on the Apocalypse

    Oops, he missed it again — the date for the rapture, that is. But that’s OK. Miscalculating the date for the end times is nothing new for Harold Camping.
    In 1992 he published his book, “1994?” in which he predicted Sept. 6, 1994, as the beginning of the end.  Undeterred by that non-happening, Camping did some re-calculating and published another book in 2008, “We Are Almost There!” He conveniently forgot to mention his 1994 prediction’s failure to launch.

  • Pornography: Unplug the drug

    Why did the news that the Osama bin Laden’s residence contained a sizable amount of pornography grab our attention? After all, our culture is saturated with pornography; it’s everywhere; it’s even an accepted part of life for much of society.  

  • Graduation - friends forever

    And so we talked all night about the rest of our lives; Where we’re gonna be when we turn 25
    I keep thinking times will never change
    Keep on thinking things will always be the same
    Lyrics from “Graduation (Friends Forever)”

    You ever hear of the above graduation song before?
    I love it, yet it always leaves me a little sad.

  • New Scrabble words have gone too far!

     

  • Looking at Earth Day history

    The first Earth Day was officially held on April 22, 1970. However, this day evolved over seven years when Sen. Gaylord Nelson in 1962 encouraged President Kennedy to spotlight the environment in the U.S. At  Sen. Nelson’s urging, President Kennedy, in 1963, went on a five-day 11-state conservation tour and planted the seed for the eventual Earth Day as we know it.

  • Dandy Dan and Fat Sam

    “If it was raining brains, Roxy Robinson wouldn’t even get wet.”

    Fat Sam

    Bugsy Malone Jr. and his hoodlums are riding into Springfield’s Opera House on May 13 and 14 at 7 p.m.
    This play is being performed by the Bluegrass Kids section of the Central Kentucky Community Theatre group. All 26 youngsters in this play are from local elementary schools and adjoining counties as directed by our own Jan Fattizzi.
