  • MY WORD: Don’t label conservatives

    Because I label myself a conservative you probably automatically assume I’m a card-carrying member of the NRA.

    Wrong. Don’t own a firearm. Not particularly fond of the taste of wild game and Dad forcefully once made the point I should never kill anything I wasn’t going to eat unless it was trying to eat me. There is nothing in our home worth killing someone to prevent its theft—except us. That’s where we draw the line.

    Bible disputes need for Fairness Ordinance

     

    I would like to reply to an article in last week’s edition by Rev. Fred Moffatt. Let me try to address each point individually.

  • WHAT WE THINK: Voting with silence or waiting for action

    Fred Moffatt opened some eyes on Thursday.

    At least, we are sure some Shelbyville City Council members were somewhat shocked to hear what he had to say.

    A Baptist minister, Moffatt spoke to the council in favor of a Fairness Ordinance, and his message should ring loud and clear.

    But it continues to fall on deaf ears, as the council again declined to respond in any way to someone speaking on a Fairness Ordinance.

  • WE CONGRATULATE: California Chrome shines on biggest stage

    Saturday’s 140th running of the Kentucky Derby was far from the most exciting two minutes in sports.

    California Chrome navigated the mile-and-one-quarter in a ho-hum fashion, even being held up by his jockey, Victor Espinoza, early in the race.

    But California Chrome put on a stretch run that we won’t forget anytime soon.

    Although he didn’t lead wire-to-wire, California Chrome had a trip that could not have been easier. No one tried to squeeze, no one tried to cut him off or bump him.

  • MARTIN: Seeing the Derby like a first-timer

    One of the best things about living in Kentucky and near Louisville is being known for the Kentucky Derby.

    No matter where you go – nationally or internationally – the first thing people bring up when they hear that you’re from Kentucky is horse racing. Well, maybe basketball and bourbon, too, but for now let’s stick with horses.

    That’s why Derby weekend is so much fun. Thousands descend on our area for a uniquely Kentucky weekend.
