Today's Opinions

  • Give kids time to eat lunch

    A change.org petition was filed Aug. 25, demanding the Evansville Vanderburgh School Corp. lengthen the amount of time its elementary-aged kids get to eat their midday meal.

    “EVSC has Elementary school lunch set at 20 mins. In that 20 mins, a child must wait in a line, get their food, find a seat, get everything opened and eat,” states the petition, filed by Jenni Webster.

  • Kenny Rowe is an example of civic responsibility

    A special thank you goes to Kenny Rowe. Every morning I am on my front porch and around 6:15 a.m., Kenny Rowe faithfully walks by with his grocery bag in his hand.

    He is out getting some exercise but also takes the time to pick up the trash so many people throw on our streets. Our city looks better because of his efforts and it is something we should emulate.

  • Serving our veterans

    The summer and fall months provide legislators the opportunity to study issues facing. Later this month, the Interim Study Committee on Public Safety and Military Affairs will meet to examine and review ways to better serve our veterans.

  • Where do candidates stand on annexation?

    Another election is rapidly approaching and one question many of us would like to know is where do the candidates running for county offices stand on the annexation issue?

    Before you say it’s a city issue, annexation involves transferring area from the county to the city, along with revenue, responsibility and possibly control of some collected tax dollars.

  • Cornfield memories

    The dry weather of the last few weeks has helped local corn crops mature and dry fairly quickly. Some farmers have begun their harvest and, at least in Spencer County, it’s easy to find freshly gleaned fields.

  • Protecting the lives of young Hoosiers

    Sixty-six is the number to remember, not as a number, but because it represents young lives that no longer have opportunities to become scientists, doctors, teachers and entrepreneurs to improve the quality of life and bring peace to our state and country. Nor can they bring laughter and enjoyment to their family and friends.

  • Safety, success can coexist for student athletes

    Football is back in full swing for our local schools. With it comes the excitement of another season for student athletes and communities.

    I always enjoy this time of year because it usually means I am back on the sidelines on Friday nights coaching one of my boys and the rest of the team in the sport we love so much. Every weeknight at practice, we always work to improve our play on the field but it’s important we remember the safety of our kids should be a top priority.
