Today's Opinions

  • Thanks for the get-well wishes

    After teaching for 21.5 years with perfect attendance, mostly at the Perry Central Community School Corp., I landed in the hospital for about a week. Four things hit me all at one time.

    At one of my post-visits with the doc, he said to me, “You were a lot sicker then you thought you were.” Well, I thanked God that I survived and I am very happy that I can still support the Perry Central Commodores.

    I appreciate the fact that 32 co-workers with whom I worked at Perry Central signed a huge 22-inch by 28-inch Super Commodore get well card.

  • Jesus would not turn a blind eye

    I read the Dec. 9 article by Elijah Bryant “Same Sex ban a terrible mistake.” I believe the writer’s comments about “What would Jesus do?”

    I do not believe he would turn just the blind eye, but instead say “Who will cast the stone?

    Then with both eyes, he would look straight to gays and say, “go and sin no more.”

  • Too many people living off our money

    In response to the News’ Nov. 25 editorial, “Wanted: Politicians with backbones,” I agree with the first two paragraphs. Two examples may need some clarification.

    This article was obviously written by a liberal Democrat. Let me say that in my opinion, the current president and other elected Democrats were voted by people of which 95 percent fall into one of three major categories: those who are either totally uninformed, unbelievably ignorant or those living on welfare and who want to stay there.

  • Everyone needs a giving bench

    My name is Anna and I have a giving bench. Before I begin my story, I have to give praise to God and credit to my wonderful friend, Emilie, who started this whole idea with just a simple, loving gesture.

    Her heart is so big and her imagination is so broad that she has changed my life forever. I love you, my dear friend.

    It all began with a little grocery store bag left on my bench out front. It is protected somewhat from the rain and weather by a small overhanging roof.

  • The Christmas Mouse

    A few years back Perry County was battered by what seemed an arctic blast during early December. My wife and I weathered the storm in our old farmhouse out on Dauby Lane that is leaning toward the century mark.

    Oh, its been remodeled and is in good shape, but that doesn’t change the fact that it’s old.

  • Snow gets to us all

    Snow has a love-hate relationship with those on whom it falls. Many of us cringe at the very word. We hate snow for what it creates and leaves behind: slick roads, fender benders, sidewalks to shovel, wet shoes and cold toes.

    Many of us have had enough of winter already and it’s not even New Year’s yet.

  • Free speech and ‘Duck Dynasty’

    Seldom has an interview in a publication known more for its coverage of men’s fashions than its profiles of celebrities generated such a national conversation.

    We’re speaking, of course, of the GQ interview of Phil Robertson of “Duck Dynasty” fame. Robertson, patriarch of the top-rated cable show, was asked about his view of homosexuality and he obligingly shared his personal views that homosexuality is wrong and a sin. That made lots of people’s wings flutter. Robertson also raised a ruckus with his views on race.

    Think of it as a welcome mat.  The Glover Cary Bridge, freshly repainted and open for business, is once again escorting passengers into Owensboro, Ky. If you haven’t been to our city for a while, I think you will be surprised to learn how much has changed in the past six months.

    • Many exciting construction projects are happening downtown, including a sparkling new convention center, set to open early next year.

    • Restaurants and other businesses are growing.
