  • WHAT WE THINK: Holiday gifts can be more than just what’s in the box

    Most of the lights are shining – if this weather would just ever cooperate – trees are up and stockings are hung with care, and there’s no doubt that holiday gifts are starting to stack up.

    We’ve already lived through Gray Thursday, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and, of course, Cyber Monday. Doesn’t it seem like we might be running out of days?

    But let’s stop for a second and look back over this epic run of consumerism, and think about our one special day that is tucked there in the middle.

  • Curry’s gesture is much more than free shoes

    Like everyone in Kentucky, I have opinions on basketball.

    I’m worried about this year’s University of Kentucky team, a lot. I just don’t know if they have that ‘It’ factor. Or if they can guard anyone. Really, anyone.

    I’ve been surprised by this year’s University of Louisville team. Former coach Rick Pitino is gone, but this year’s team has that hungry look his underrated teams always had. They get after it and make teams work.

    Unions, including teachers, are the real bullies

    This year, the big bully on the playground was the Kentucky Education Association. They spent enormous amounts of the money they take from teachers to try to elect liberal Democrats across the state. By the way, that’s taxpayer money they wasted.

  • MY WORD/Ryan Quarles, Commissioner of Agriculture: Farm to School is a win-win for farmers, students

    October is Farm To School month, and here in Kentucky we have plenty of reasons to celebrate.

    Our hard-working Kentucky Department of Agriculture staff has recruited 907 schools in 77 school districts to participate in our Farm To School program. Some school districts are the largest food procurers in each county, so this program provides many benefits to Kentucky farmers and students alike.

    Consider plant-based diets

    Dear Editor,

    I just learned that World Day for Farm Animals was Oct. 2, Gandhi’s birthday. It’s intended to memorialize the billions of animals abused and killed for food each year.

    Like many others, I always thought of farm animals as “food on the hoof.”

    But, after watching the deeply moving feature film “okja” on Netflix, I realized that a farm animal is much like our family dog, fully deserving of compassion and respect.
