Today's Opinions

  • Wild ride comes to an end

    “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.” - Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 (NIV)
    Thank You!
    I cannot say those words enough.

  • Community news vital to paper

    Publisher and journalist Henry Luce once said, “I became a journalist to come as close as possible to the heart of the world.”
    I’ve found the same to be true about myself, except my world is contained to a rural county in northern Kentucky with a little over 10,000 residents.
    The past three months have been a learning experience for me. There have been a few tears here and there, but luckily I’ve had our readers by my side to help guide and encourage me.

  • Oct. 29, 2014: Letters to the editor

    Not on ballot, but not out of picture
    Editor:

    I am being asked why my name is not on the ballot for Owenton City Council. I was in the hospital Aug. 1-21 and was unable to file for this office.
    I deeply regret not having the opportunity to represent you. It has been a great honor to be on the city council. You have been a wonderful group to represent and I thank you for the help and support you have given me.

  • Georgia On My Mind: 'Swag Money' fires incompetent cyber-assistant

    I fired my personal assistant. I got worried she was a spy for the CIA using my ho-hum life as a front. Bumbling around working for me, a Kentucky grandmother on Medicare, she was respectably dull and invisible, ready to take on any ISIS terrorists who may have penetrated the frozen foods section of my local Kroger.
    If not an undercover agent, however, she certainly was the most incompetent assistant in history. Or maybe the most impertinent.

  • No 'mama' is perfect, but each one is a hero

    There’s a scar on my shin that tells a story about me that most people don’t know.
    It’s the story of how one little girl had only one wish for her adult life -- and that was to be just like her hero.
    The scar came about after a trip to my mama’s closet, where I took out a pair of her old high heels. I slipped them on my tiny feet and walked carefully through the house, trying my hardest to be as graceful as mama when she walked through the church doors on Sunday mornings.

  • Letter to the editor: Satterwhite shamble a success

    On April 11 we came together for the 16th annual Charlie Satterwhite Memorial Golf Shamble at Fairway Golf Course in Wheatley. I have to say, God and Judge Satterwhite gave us the best weather we have ever had in the history of our tournament.
    As always, our day of supporting the Owen County Senior Citizens’ Activity Fund and the Satterwhite Foundation would not be successful without the businesses and individuals who helped support this event, either by sponsoring a hole, donating a door prize or giving of their time to help us in some form.
