Today's Opinions

  • Letter to the editor: Keith will provide leadership

    There are some nasty rumors running around Owen County which are so untrue about Carolyn Keith. I hate it when dirty politics come into play but I guess that is how some candidates “toot their horn” thinking this will harm Mrs. Keith’s chance for re-election. Well … think again.

  • Letter to the editor: Webster drops out, thanks supporters

    Due to a conflict with my employer, I have with great regret withdrawn my name from the first district constable election race. The conflict was unknown at the time I filed for the office.

    I would like to thank everyone I have talked to or visited thus far and has offered their support during this campaign. I would like to thank my wife and family, as well, who assisted during this process and supported me. I am sure I will pursue this office again in the future and will ask for your support at that time, but for now, thanks to all.

  • Guest Editorial: Despite budget crisis, controversy, school district will continue to raise the bar

    I will not discuss the details of the allegations against me (I am not even sure exactly what they were) as the grand jury has made its findings. I do adamantly disagree with the allegations, assertions and attacks on my character and behavior. My responsibility has been and continues to be what’s best for kids – often that means we have to change how we do business – change is hard and it is human nature to resist change because we all become comfortable in how we do things.

  • Letter to the editor: Owen County needs leaders with vision

    May 18 is a critical election for Owen County. With the loss of tobacco contracts and tobacco buyout funds ending with the terms of the leaders we elect, the economy and lifestyle of Owen County is changing. The question is, changing to what?

  • Letter to the editor: Tough times demand action by the people

    Times are tough. Times have always been tough. That’s never changed. For generations we get politicians time and time again telling us how they are going to make things better for us. But when you look at Kentucky’s statistics, it makes you want to pull your hair out. We are bottom of the list in America for education, health care, and wealth.

  • Letter to the Editor: Weigh the impact of your vote

    With elections just around the corner, I would like for everyone to think about the significance of every single vote and its impact on the future of our county, state and country. Today, more than ever before, we are pressed to look beyond “party loyalty,” the “good ole boy” system, retaliation, or complacency, when voting. Whether local, state or federal, the consequences are often the same – a bad political landscape with poor policy making.

  • Letter to the Editor: Take part in National Day of Prayer

    Thursday, May 6, is the National Day of Prayer. Bro. Franklin Graham is asking every Christ follower to assemble somewhere to pray.

    I’ll be at the flagpole at the (Owen County) Courthouse. See you at the pole.

  • Letter to the Editor: Superintendent’s behavior questioned

    I have recently become involved in a very unpleasant situation at Owen County schools.

    There have been events in the last two weeks that have hopefully opened the eyes of those in charge and with any luck by the time this letter prints, (Mark Cleveland) will have been removed from his position as superintendent of Owen County schools.
