  • The impact of 9-11: Something really good did emerge

    This is the week for one of those winding, emotional and reflective cruises down the turbulent tributaries that feed those endless eddies stirred by a life-changing event.

    We don’t simply glance over our shoulders at the rapids that changed our course, but we stare at it, consume it anew and bring from our deep-sealed memories the emotions, the adrenalin that carried us through those waters to our anchorage of today.

  • What we think: We like plan to honor Squire Boone

    The concept being extended by longtime Shelby County native Joe Ruble to build an iconic statue of Squire Boone on the east end of Shelbyville is another significant and – we think – embraceable piece of entrepreneurship by a citizen who loves Shelby County and revels in its history.

  • What we think: State fair winners make us proud

    We love the Kentucky State Fair for many reasons, but one is that we just love seeing our friends and neighbors getting ribbons and prizes for doing what they love most to do.

    This is a time when dedication to talents and hobbies brings attention from everyone, when great cooking, a cool drawing, a beautiful quart of honey, a composed heifer, a perfect bale of hay and, of course, a studly and elegant horse draw the eye of a state and perhaps a nation.

  • Letters to the Editor, Sept. 7, 2011

    Zone change would be wrong

  • If you want to learn some lessons in life, make a little hay

    A  man and I were talking the other day about another lost teaching moment for young people.
    We reminisced about how boys and girls are missing out on one of those annual activities that taught us so much about the challenges of life, about how we could face them, and, well, about nature, in a roundabout way.
    In fact, of the fundamentals taught to our dubious and dumbfounded dispositions, I might suggest this endeavor had perhaps the greatest impact on our development this side of a hug or a switch, though hardly anywhere close to that personal.
