MY WORD: A poisonous attack about global warming

I have been publicly attacked by Rudy M. Wiesemann, whose paycheck has always been provided by the chemical industry, just in case you haven't already figured that out (My Word, “No need to save the planet,” May 1).

Bees aren't bad, unless they start destroying your home with their tunneling.

WICHE: The buzz about carpenter bees

By Jeneen Wiche

I absolutely do not approve of killing bees. In fact, we are in a bit of a crisis with a diminishing population with the suspected cause being the use of pesticides, notably neonicotinoids.

I do not fear bees, I am not allergic, and I can happily co-exist – except that they are eating my house.

Or, rather, they are tunneling into the wood that makes up my house so they can lay eggs and have lots of babies.

The greatest moments of success in our lives sometimes get lost in our hopes for something greater.

Embrace those spotlight moments

By Steve Doyle

Little boys and girls grow up imagining the big moment in their dream lives. For some that means hitting the game-winning home run, making the half-court shot as the buzzer sounds, playing solo in Carnegie Hall, recording a hit single or even delivering a moving speech in the halls of government.

They stand in back yards, on playgrounds, on a balcony above a hallway, in front of the mirrors in their bedrooms. Some may hold hair brushes for microphones, hit rocks with a chipped bat or bank in a shot on a wooden backboard attached to a barn.

State will bump gas tax again on July 1

Kentucky state law will kick in on July 1 and automatically raise the state's gas tax 2.4 cents a gallon. The law has raised the state's gas tax in nine of the last 10 years.

The state will collect an additional $72 million in tax revenue as Kentucky's tax on a gallon of gasoline goes to 32.3 cents, almost twice the gas tax we were paying a decade ago.

The law partly ties the gas tax rate to the average wholesale price of gasoline.

There are many answers to our problems in the Bible. If we simply will listen.

SOUDER: School’s out for summer, but class is still in session

If you are, like I, a parent of school-aged children, then you know that school is officially out for summer. At our house, that means our kids want to stay up late at night and then sleep in even later the next morning. And because my wife and I remember being teenagers, we generally allow both, within reason. However, there was one end-of-the-school-year “event”’ to which I did not agree.

Here are a few tricks for dealing with the big bloomers.

WICHE: Peonies are long-lived in the garden

By Jeneen Wiche

A couple of weeks ago, one of the prettiest flowers in the garden started to bloom. This great cut-leaf Japanese peony, Paeonia tenuifolia, opened its simple ruby-colored petals to reveal bright yellow stamen. The finely cut foliage, reminiscent of the most finely cut foliage of a Japanese maple, allows the plant to be interesting in the mixed border the rest of the growing season, too.

MY WORD: About those climate issues

If Rudy Wiesemann was vying for the irony award with his My Word ("No need to save the planet,” May 1), he should win it hands down. Because after grandly stating that he could not let "unreferenced misstatements go unrefuted," and that he "prefer[s] to rely on facts to expose errors, myths, [and] mistakes," he then proceeds to lay out paragraph after paragraph of unreferenced misstatements, logical errors, easily debunked myths and outright mistakes.
