  • 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.

  • WE CONGRATULATE: The sun’s arrival to help with roads

    There was no more welcome sight that emerged on Monday than the sun that rose into a cold, windy sky and started to melt some of that white, icy stuff off our roads.

    We were beginning to think those roads never would be clear after the latest winter storm. We know our road crews are overextended and fatigued from a winter of continuous climatalogical discontent and that the supply of salt and the opportunity to brine were insufficient for the onslaught of Winter Storm Titan.

  • MY WORD: Are we creating new arguments against evolution?
  • DOYLE: A night that merged black and white

    Perhaps it is appropriate that in the month we celebrate African-American history that this week we commemorated the 50th anniversary of the historic rise to prominence of one Cassius Clay, the boxer and not the abolitionist for whom he was named, the man famous worldwide as Muhammad Ali.

    And there are few persons I can identify during my lifetime who did more to span the great divide between races, to bring focus and discussion to the principles that Martin Luther King had preached.

  • WHAT WE THINK: Shelbyville City Council is making the wrong move

    This newspaper is supposed to be paying attention to the best interests of the community, but we feel rather stupid right now, as if we didn’t see what we should have, as if we have let you down.

    Because we feel very much blindsided by the Shelbyville City Council.
