  • WHAT WE THINK: Too few voices are answering questions for our commonwealth

    Last Tuesday night, as we sat and watched the Republican Primary for Governor, we could not help but notice one glaring issue – less than 400,000 votes were cast in our state.

    And that’s not 400,000 in the Republican Primary, that’s total. There were only 214,000 people that cared enough about our Republican nomination to vote.

    Although, maybe we should be impressed with the GOP’s turnout – only about 178,500 turned out to vote in the Democrat Primary. Of course, Jack Conway got more than 140,000 of those votes.

    Cemetery clean and without issue

     

     

    In your April 10 issue, allegations were published that a private cemetery was neglected and being abused. Because of the reports of damage and desecration, the Shelby County Cemetery Preservation Board was contacted for comments.

  • WE CONGRATULATE: Those we remember on Memorial Day

    Each year Memorial Day – like the 4th of July – seems to drift further and further away from its true meaning.

    We manage our cookouts down to the spud and bun – who is grilling the dogs and burgers, who has the veggies, who has dessert, who has drinks.

    We manage our parties with games for the kids and the adults. We manage our guest lists to include our friends, neighbors and family.

    But it seems as though we never manage to stop and remember the reason we are not at work or school on the last Monday of May.

  • WHAT WE THINK: Do we need to continue voting at our schools?

    As we cast our votes and watch the precious few voters that turned out with us on Tuesday, we found ourselves wondering the same thing we always do around election time.

    Surprisingly it has nothing to do with attack ads, mudslinging or even the issues. No, we’re left with that internal debate we have twice each year about students missing school for Election Days.
