  • Your dream is my nightmare

    Those of you who consider what happened on Saturday to be a dream game are, well, dreaming.
    You know who you are, wearing either red or blue and yelling like a banshee at that basketball cum football game you watched.
    Yes, Kentucky vs. Louisville – to let winners go first – was for decades a dream for fans of both schools, but except for the winning part, Saturday was something more akin to a nightmare for those who most wanted to see it played.
    To put it simply, sports fans, this was pure ugly.

  • What we think: Here are our community goals for 2012

    It’s the time of year when we as individuals pause to organize our thoughts going forward, circle some dates on our calendar and prepare goals for where we want to be at the end of December. Some of us call these resolutions, but those tend to be tied to regiments that don’t really fit our lives and evaporate before the ground thaws.

  • SOUDER: Well, at least the phones were smart

    Well, another Christmas is now in the books, and I hope that you had a peaceful, joyous time with family and friends and that you came to more fully appreciate the true meaning of the season: consumer electronics!

    Yes, Christmas is the time for all manner of high-tech gizmos and gadgets – from Xboxes and PlayStations to TVs and Blu-Rays to Kindles, Nooks and Kobos to iPads, iPods, and iPhones (¡Ay, caramba!).

  • The greatest story ever reported

    And in the same country, two editors were keeping track over the newsroom by night.

    And, lo, an angel of the Lord came before them, and the glory of the Lord shown round about them.

    But they weren’t afraid, because they knew this was Fred, a neighbor in St. Peter’s Loving Arms Apartments.

    “I have glad tidings of great joy,” he said. “Which shall be unto all people.”

    They shook their heads.

  • What we think: Lots of progress occurred in 2011

    When we first sat down to measure Shelby County’s success against the goals we had set for it last January, we were expecting to be disappointed. Had we really accomplished anything on our list other than getting a commitment from state highway officials to do an early remedy for the dangerous Exit 32, eastbound from KY 55 onto Interstate 64?

    That was stellar work, to be sure, but we also know that there could be difficulty designating the dollars required to accommodate a project we were told could begin next year. Does that tinge this tout?
