School counselors first line of defense

Another school shooting and still no changes. If we can afford metal detectors at every door, we can afford to utilize the resources we already have. Students need to be taught what behavior we expect and school counselors want to do that. The trouble is that’s not what happens in schools.

Trump spoiling for war

Some white, evangelical Christian ministers say that God chose Donald Trump to be our president. Unlike Russia, God does not interfere in our elections or control our votes. We elected Trump via the Electoral College and a bizarre, dysfunctional White House is the result.

Courage to act

President Donald Trump has waged a war against the deep state and those in our federal government who would mitigate the power of the president. He has been largely successful in getting rid of people who prevented him from acting out his ruling fantasy.

Blasting it out of the park

A recent concert at Whitaker Bank Ballpark was more than loud. It rattled the earth. Many concertgoers left early and I believe it was because of the excessive noise. I phoned the Lexington 311 line but a lady told me there was nothing she could do because "It's a concert". I tried to explain we have lots of concerts here, but nothing like this. She ignored me. How do we set a decibel level on concerts held in neighborhoods? Why do the residents have to deal with this abuse? And how is loud better?

Eblen unfair to Rupp

Tom Eblen reported last month about segregation in Lexington at the time of the Rev. Martin Luther King’s assassination. He stated that at the University of Kentucky, “White fans at ballgames waved Confederate flags and sang ‘Dixie.’ Basketball coach Adolph Rupp didn’t want black players on his team.”

Give readers both sides

If you are in need of some more op-ed articles, let me know. I'll be glad to help you out, because it seems you are a bit left-sided. Readers deserve to hear two sides to every story and then fact-check and form opinions for themselves. By only providing one side of a story, some may believe it is the truth.

Look in the mirror, voters

In the last 43 years there have been two Republican governors: the present one and a one-term governor in 2003. I believe there has been one Republican-majority legislature during that time — the current one.

Group-led outrage

A paraphrase from Mark Twain: “Individuals can act incredibly stupid, but they can’t hold a candle to the stupidity produced by a group of individuals in a conference room.”

Palisades a backyard gem

The Palisades region of the Kentucky River stretching across the southern border of Fayette County is a gem worth exploring for all Kentuckians. We have been blessed with the opportunity to work for Boone Creek Outdoors on Old Richmond Road in Lexington for the past year.

Teacher flight likely from state

Every year school districts look at the colleges and universities for those bright, young graduates to fill openings at their schools. It is a competitive race. These graduates are also looking for jobs, especially the ones that pay best.
