  • WHAT WE THINK: Stop, think before you Tweet

    Former NFL player and coach Herman Edwards can often be found giving opinions on ESPN during football season, and if you go back and listen you can see that Edwards is not very fond of social media platforms, especially Twitter.

    Edwards – who often times is brought in to discuss the moral high ground of decisions along with the X’s and O’s of the game – has a favorite quote when it comes to the instant response time of Tweets: “Don’t hit send.”

    “The Greatest of All Time”

    Dear Editor:

    My brother and I went to Louisville last Friday to watch Muhammad Ali’s casket pass by. I will never forget that day. An overwhelming feeling of love and peace pervaded; everyone united in their grief and respect for “The Greatest of All Time.”

  • MY WORD: Kentucky, once again, at forefront of hemp production

    As senators from Kentucky, we’ve been fortunate to meet the many farmers who help make our state work. Agriculture is a vital part of Kentucky’s economy, and we’ve learned from Kentucky’s farmers that one way to keep our state’s agricultural sector growing is to explore new, viable cash crops for the state. This is why we’ve put our support behind expanding industrial hemp research.

  • WHAT WE THINK: Wet/dry vote is a principle of economics

     The Shelby County Fiscal Court’s decision to take on the work to let the people vote on the county’s wet/dry/moist status should be met with great applause.

    The idea of allowing package liquor sales in the county is not a new one, but this is the first time the county has lent its full support to the cause.

    Last week the court approved setting aside $15,000 to help attain the signatures needed to get the decision put on the ballot.
