  • WE CONGRATULATE Triple S’s stand on building standards

    Way to go, Triple S Planning Commission. You received your first challenge from what will be explosive growth around Simpsonville, and you did the right thing.

    You didn’t allow Bob Evans Restaurant to change the rules on building standards and to undermine the standards for quality of the area before any business ever opened.

  • MY WORD: I haven’t read my Bible objectively

    Once again, I find myself awash with incredulity at the selective bias on display in one of Chuck Souder’s latest exposes (“God is pro-life and pro-choice,” Jan. 29). Mr. Souder states emphatically that, “Of course, God is against abortion. No one could read the bible objectively and conclude otherwise.” He then goes on to reassure readers that, “God is absolutely, 100 percent pro-life!”

  • MY WORD: Our decisions can perplex

    We received the Greater Louisville Yellow Book for 2014 recently. It was noticeably smaller than the 2013 edition. The print seemed the same size. The Yellow Pages were down to 687 pages from 1.137 in 2013…..a 40 percent drop. The white page, were down to 263 pages from 366 in 2013….a 28 percent drop.

    I’m not sure I know what this means. My first thought was that this many businesses ceased to exist. Then I thought, no, there would have to be a few new ones during that period, so the news is even worse.

  • DOYLE: A snowy Valentine’s gold-medal gift

    On Friday night, the romanticists among you probably were laying it on thick for Valentine’s Day.

    Maybe you dropped a special piece of jewelry or chocolate or flowers on your sweetheart.

    Maybe you sat across from him or her in a dark little corner of a restaurant, sipping champagne or honey bourbon or a bountiful Brunello and staring into the most enchanting eyes you’ve seen.

    Maybe you lit candles on your dining room table and put on your finery to make something routine into something extraordinary.

  • WHAT WE THINK: Minimum wage bump deserves our support

    The concept of paying a more equitable dollar for the lowest-level jobs in our economic scale is not new. This idea of raising the minimum wage was a political football long before President Barack Obama kicked it into the end zone during his State of the Union address and House Bill 1 ran it into the public consciousness of the Kentucky legislature.

    And most Kentuckians – if not most Americans – think it’s about time to take that step.
