Today's Opinions

  • Our fantasy with reality

    “Robin is better than the girl of my dreams. She’s real.”

    - From the movie “(500) Days of Summer”

    Our obsession with reality television has run amuck.

  • Washington County's own Steel Magnolias

    “M’Lynn, your husband is the boil on the butt of humanity.”

    Ouiser’s line from Steel Maganolias

     

    Hey, Margaret Chelf!  I’ll be waiting in the front row when you belt out that line!

    Steel Magnolias is the latest play being performed by the Central Kentucky Community Theatre. It will be playing February 26-28 and March 5-7. Showtimes are 7 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. on Sundays.

  • Enjoying winter Olympic 'events'

    I’m an outdoor guy. I enjoy the warm, sunny days that come along with baseball season, and even the cooler days that bring the college and NFL football seasons.

    That’s why even I have been surprised to find myself enjoying the winter Olympics so much this year. Other than basketball and hockey, I’d rather be playing an outdoor sport, or even watching one played outdoors. That’s just me. But this whole winter Olympics thing has found me sitting in my chair with, well, let’s say, other events on the TV.

  • Readers Write: Reader thinks library is warm, welcoming place

    Dear Editor,

    What a wonderful and welcoming facility we have in our Washington County Library.

    As soon as you enter, people are at the computers, others choosing a video, while some are deciding which book they want, or just sitting at a table reading. If you need help finding anything...no worry...a smiling face will be right there for you. Need a copy or two run, they’ll do that also.

  • Readers Write: Man wants county-wide cleanup

    To the magistrates of Washington County

    I am writing to you in reference to your recent vote that eliminated the yearly county cleanup program. While I realize that no one enjoys being told they have made a mistake, I believe it is my duty to inform you that your vote to discontinue this program was indeed a HUGE mistake!

  • Readers Write: Autism support now available locally

    Dear Editor,

  • The shoes

    I owned three pairs of shoes when this story began.

    A pair of shoes showed up at my house a few years back.  That’s not all that unusual, except these showed up by themselves, with no one attached.

    I was coming up the drive to the garage one day when I saw a plastic Wal-Mart bag with something in it lying against the house.  There’s always something laying around our house, mostly kids, so my curiosity wasn’t peaked until a couple of days later.  The bag was still there.

  • The simple life

    Some winter, huh?

    Did you ever think about the positive side really bad weather brings?

    It’s rest and being with your family.

    Sounds funny doesn’t it?  But sometimes the weather gets so bad that life slows down to a crawl.  You can’t go anywhere because the roads are snowed in.  Even if you could go somewhere, everything is pretty much shut down.  

    So what happens?

    You stay home and bundle up for a day or two.  Maybe play in the snow, watch television, play cards, or get out some old board games.
