  • WE CONGRATULATE: Bobby Hudson's contributions to Shelby County.

    Those who endorse Bobby Hudson for lifetime achievement awards – and there are many of both endorsers and awards – always say the same thing:

    He built so much of Shelby County.

    Mr. Hudson, the chief executive officers of the Shelby County Industrial and Development Foundation, may never have lifted a board or driven a nail climbed a ladder with a load of shingles, but when it comes to foundations, he has helped to pour more than a few.

  • MY WORD: Loss and found – life and death

    Let’s look at these four issues and how they affect our lives. Let’s begin by describing loss, which may be of two kinds: the loss of materials things such as money or a business from a bad decision. We may also lose by theft and be aggravated because of our carelessness or bad judgment.

    The other type of loss is of a love one or a close friend, or the loss of health or our physical well being.

  • MY WORD: Should there be a law?

    There ought to be a law! Don’t ever say that where a politician can hear it. You’ll get a thousand pages of rhetoric, which will take a thousand lawyers to figure out what it really means – and chances are we already have a dozen laws that say essentially the same thing.

    Moses brought down from the mountain 10 pretty good ones – straightforward and short. Today we would have to eliminate the first one because it has been declared against the law.

  • MY WORD: Science vs. religion: How about an experiment?

    I happen to agree with a statement that Chuck Souder made as a main theme of parts 1 and 2 of his column titled “Evading the Obvious” (a fitting title but not in the way Mr. Souder may think it is). He said, “Ideas have consequences.”

  • DOYLE: This new rivalry feels like the old

    Our universe is in apple pie order again. Wrong returns to right. Surreal reverts to real. Upside down is right side up, and forward is the motion, not reverse.

    Some of you feel it, too, because you are devotees of Shelby County Rockets basketball, and ever since that new school opened out west, well, the Rocket Pride and the history of greatness have sort of become a footnote in the bigger swings of life.

  • WHAT WE THINK: Survival of JHS is really good news

    The diagnosis last week for the financial problems besetting KentuckyOne Health was at first scary and then a great relief.

    Much like a patient whose X-ray shows a big problem to be benign, KentuckyOne, parent company of Jewish Hospital Shelbyville, said it would do surgery but that the patient should survive – at least for the foreseeable future.
