  • MY WORD: Why attack those health-care professionals who are trying to help?

    The price of a full-page ad in a local county paper costs an average exceeding $500. The Kentucky Medical Association has placed ads regarding “Identify Medical Doctors” in many local papers statewide. The total money spent by this organization on their recent smear campaign targeting non-medically degreed health-care providers probably totals thousands.

  • Here are a few points to debate

    Unless you are a devotee of the man himself, you probably had to giggle a bit as I did when I heard Newt Gingrich say recently that he wanted to be nominated for president and challenge Barack Obama to a series of 3-hour, Lincoln-Douglas-style debates on the issues facing our country.

    Unless I miss my guess: Honest Abe, the founding Republican, and Short Steve got off a good guffaw from the Great Peanut Gallery in the sky as well.

  • What we think: Recyled idea works better

    The saga involving Midwest Metals’ desire to open a facility in Shelby County seems to be on the road to an appropriate conclusion, which leaves us to ponder why there was such an unnecessary detour along the way.

    Midwest Metals, the recycling company, earned approval from the Triple S Board of Appeals on Thursday night to construct its collection complex on Windhurst Way, basically across the street from the acreage set aside for the new Shelby County Convenience Center adjacent to the Shelby County Industrial Park.

  • We congratulate: Shawn Allen’s U.S. Senate role

    Shawn Allen Jr., a junior at Shelby County High School, has spent these past few months getting to understand a process that most of us in the senior classes of life only barely can grasp.

    Mr. Allen since September has been a page for U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell as part of the Senate Page School program.

  • SOUDER: Up, down, in & out – but keeping politically correct

    With the Republican presidential primaries in full swing and the annual “State of the Union” address this week, some of you might have been expecting a column focusing on political matters.  However, at least for this week, I am going to employ the rule that my mother always told me and that I’m guessing most of your mothers told you: If you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all. 

    So, while I’m sure I won’t be able to remain silent until November, today I’ll go a different direction.

    School board’s sense

     

  • A first visit to a familiar place

    The boy climbed to his seat high in Rupp Arena on Saturday, his every sense keen to the sights and sounds of this famed arena, a Mecca to which he was pilgrimaging for the first time.

    He had passed its outer lobby while visiting the Hyatt Regency Hotel, reading the signs, noting the doorways, but his only peeks inside were from the narrow views of pixilated formations on a variety of television screens.
