Today's Opinions

  • 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.

  • A New Shelby County

    After two months of watching the legislative process take place in Frankfort, I have become rather envious of my law-making counterparts.

    While we sit around here and complain about how things should be better, the men and women in the state legislature are actually able to do something about it. Well, that is, in theory at least.

  • Agrees with editorial

    The editorial on CATS testing (in the March 12 Sentinel-News) is 100 percent on tract. My grandson is a early out senior from Shelby Co. He tells the same story. Teachers can't teach anything but the test.

    I talked for some time last night to Allen Stewart, one of the best

    teachers Shelby County ever had, retired before he wanted to because

    after CATS he could not teach as he knew he should.

    The CATS scores may be going up but from what I understand ACT test

    scores are going down. If we are graduating kids from high school

  • Vote yes for booster seats

    I read Representative Montell's legislative report in the Sentinel News. I noticed that Representative Montell left out his voting record on HB 55: booster seat legislation.

    I have voted as a Republican for nearly 20 years and I have believed that Republicans have always stood for family values. Booster seat legislation is the ultimate in protecting family values.

  • It's no trouble? It's snow trouble!

    I got what I have been whining for: a blizzard. Louisville reported a bit over 10 inches in the storm we got Friday and Saturday, March 7-8.

    Friday evening I saw lightning. I thought I'd lost my mind to snow-hallucinations, but local weather bloggers confirmed thunder and lightning were part of the storm. Snow came down faster than the salt trucks could spread salt. I suppose that makes sense as far as the science of snow-salt-road ratios go. But I wanted salt, brine, everything, even kitty litter, spread out in great quantities as I went home Friday.

  • Louisville money rules

    Many of this county's citizens spent weeks amending the conditional use regulations for agriculture. In January, the Board of Adjustments and Appeals threw out these rules in favor of the Louisville Cemetery. It is a slap in the face of our citizens.

    In February, Chuck Hickman rules against Triple S Planning and Zoning in favor of New Estates Farms, a development planned on the Shelby/Jefferson county line, a decision overly biased toward Jefferson County's development interests.
