Today's Opinions

  • Don't blame Bush

    Having just finished reading the Op-Ed column in the March 26, 2008 edition of The Sentinel News, I feel compelled to answer the letter, "Bush is to Blame."

    I must hand it to Ms. Packard, she can spew out more inaccuracies, hate expletives and pure left wing trash than any on-line blogger I have experienced.

  • We need a Farm Bill

    While Congress and President Bush recently completed work on an economic stimulus package for America, farm interests have been pushing for another type of economic boost known as "the farm bill."

    Sometimes mischaracterized as a subsidy program for large-scale corporate farms, the nation's farm policy actually goes a long way toward providing a sense of economic stability in rural communities. And it does so with a broad reach.

  • Take it with a TON of salt

    Did you see Earth Day at the new Orchard Park this past Saturday?

    Wait... film at eleven!

    Hundreds of Shelby County residents attend the annual Chamber Showcase!

    Tune in to see more tonight!

    Funny, those events didn't seem to make the evening broadcast news.

    But, let a local restaurant have a case of food poisoning and it's virtually a national television media event.

  • Honor those who serve and protect

    It is a sad commentary on society when common criminals are elevated to celebrity status by virtue of their infamy, while heroes remain unsung.

    Police officers are true heroes and heroines of our still-mean streets across this nation. Those special persons who care enough to serve and protect do so at tremendous costs - both physical and emotional.

  • Public decency shouldn't be taken for granted

    Social skills are important. One social skill that most people over the age of four have mastered is keeping their clothes on in public. Unfortunately, state lawmakers seem to be struggling with this idea. It's not that legislators have been convening in Frankfort in the buff, but they've got nothing to hide behind when it comes to passing a statewide public decency law.

  • March Madness or Jesus Madness?

    It's tournament time again and everyone is excited about their team. College basketball is a big favorite everywhere in this country, but I think most of all here in Kentucky. So as you know the team that gets a great run, makes no mistakes, and really wants it bad enough will receive the ultimate prize at the end, The National Championship.

  • Awesome services

    What turned out to be one of the worst days of my life lead me to discover some awesome services available here in Shelby County. I would like to share this knowledge so that other people will know about this as well.

  • It is in the Bible

    In reading "It's In The Bible" written by Betsy Packard, I was compelled to respond to her message. As a Christian I would like to apologize to Ms. Packard because the church and people who proclaim to be Christians have let her down somewhere along the line in order for her to feel the way she does.

    For too long now the so-called Christian church has labeled people, judged people and turned people away from Christianity and therefore, the Bible, also.
