Today's Opinions

  • Will my dog be in Heaven?

    People sometimes ask me if their dog will be in Heaven. My short answer is, tongue in cheek, “Heaven? Yes. Hell? No!”

    I do believe dogs will be in Heaven, but since they are not capable of making moral decisions, Hell is not an option. It is only by God’s mercy that dogs, or humans for that matter, will be in Heaven. Now, before you protest that mercy is reserved exclusively for humans, since only they are responsible for moral decisions, let me explain.

  • 'Godspell' comes to the local stage

    The musical “Godspell” will be performed at the Opera House on Friday and Saturday, June 4 and 5 at 7 p.m. and on Sunday June 6 at 2 p.m. as directed by Scott Fattizzi.

    The word “Godspell” is actually a very ancient way of spelling Gospel.

    This musical itself is based on the parables of Jesus Christ, but told through song and dance. It was first written and performed almost 40 years ago. You may just enjoy the music, and there’s a lot of it, but it’s meant to make you laugh and smile while you’re learning something important.

  • 'Click It or Ticket' is a good program

    Maybe it was the friend whose life was saved because that friend took five seconds to put on a seat belt.

    Maybe it was the $25 ticket you were handed when a police officer caught you not wearing a seat belt.

    Maybe it’s that seat belts save lives, period.

    Whatever the reason, whatever it takes to put a seat belt on, find it in you to do it.

    Area police agencies are in the midst of an annual program geared at motorists who aren’t buckled up.

  • Readers Write: Reader upset over racist graffiti

    Dear Editor,

    Some time between Monday night and early Tuesday morning, May 18, 2010, properties around the High Street and Main Street area were vandalized by three young men. Gold paint was used to write racial slurs on garage doors, signs, a telephone junction box and our truck.

    The N word, KKK and Nazi symbol were spray painted in large letters on items throughout town.

  • Unspoken prayers

    Sometimes it’s the silent prayers that speak the loudest.

  • The quiet soldier and the Silver Star

    We cherish too, the Poppy red

    That grows on fields where valor led,

    It seems to signal to the skies

    That blood of heroes never dies.

    Monia Michael

    Memorial Day was originally called “Decoration Day” for the soldiers that died as a result of combat.

  • Prank phone calls and caller ID

    The phone rang here at The Springfield Sun last week, and a man on the other end was trying to find out who had called him. He saw our number on the caller ID of his phone, so he called us back to see what we needed. Someone here had dialed a wrong number, and the call was dismissed without issue.

  • Readers Write: Reader enjoys a night at the local theater

    Dear Editor,

    Somewhere, someone said to look for hidden treasures in the darndest of places. That thought can be said of Springfield, Ky. Besides the historic value in and around Springfield and the wonderful dining establishments, folks in Washington County can be especially proud of a wonderful gem. It is the Central Kentucky Community Theater at the Opera House in downtown Springfield.
