  • MARTIN: A 1st trip to the Oaks will be memorable

    Even though I grew up in Tennessee, which I’m still to this day not very happy about, I was in Kentucky quite a bit visiting family.

    However, now that I’ve been here for more than a decade, I realize how many uniquely Kentucky events I’ve missed out on.

    I still haven’t been to Mammoth Caves or the Corvette Museum. I haven’t been to the Newport Aquarium, although my wife and son have.

  • PUCKETT: Remembering Mr. T

    People who have read The Sentinel-News through the years are familiar with names of the editors, reporters and photographers. However, there are lots of people behind the scenes who have helped bring you reports about our community: those who work in management, those who sell ads, those who handle composition, those who oversee subscriptions… I know, because I called The Sentinel-News “home” for 27 years.

  • DOYLE: You'll flip over this yarn

    Many dark nights ago, my friend Walt Carpenter tricked me into riding the Rock-O Planes with him at the Shelby County Fair.

    You may recall this ride, in its day the most adventurous on the midway and hidden down in the dark northeast corner, just around from the blare and glare of those infamous hoochie-coochie shows, and cattycornered to the Octopus.

  • MY WORD: What does wealth mean

    As pointed out before, our family does not meet the standards in terms of income or accumulated wealth to be considered wealthy. If we did we’d probably move our legal residence to Florida, Tennessee or some of the other state who have no state income tax or death taxes (the most obscene tax of all).

  • WHAT WE THINK: Maybe we just don’t understand

    We’ve been back and forth on the curbside garbage issue for what seems like a decade. We’ve talked about it, you’ve talked about it and your elected officials have talked about it, but we continue to wait and nothing is getting done.

    Really, though, the whole thing is pretty simple: Can government provide a better service than what residents have now?

    Not just cheaper – although that’s a big, big part of it – but better for everyone.
