Thanks to all who helped keep Hillcrest open
Posted: May 24, 2015

Hillcrest remains open and is being enjoyed by golfers who tee it up, walk the fairways and putt its greens. I bogied the first hole I played after the City Commission voted to keep the course open. I didn't mind the bogey, as I felt grateful to have this beautiful little 9-hole course to play with my wife, relatives and friends.

Billboard evidence of moral shades of gray
Posted: May 24, 2015

As a pro-choice advocate, I wish to commend Owensboro Right to Life for their conspicuous billboard signage located across from Champion Ford at the intersection of J.R. Miller and Southtown boulevards. Its succinct and paradoxical message, "Every woman should have rights, born or unborn," illustrates brilliantly the dichotomy inextricably linked with their putative philosophical position regarding fetal rights.

Grimes has a proven record of success
Updated: May 14, 2015 - 2:38 am

We have an important duty to decide who will represent us as constitutional officers over the next four years. In three short years as secretary of state, Alison Lundergan Grimes has built a record of success and is a proven champion of Kentucky businesses. One hundred thousand new businesses have been started under her watch.  She has improved our commonwealth's business climate with Kentucky's Business One Stop Portal. Alison has ushered in business-friendly legislation, including this year's bipartisan legislation updating nonprofit business laws.

Residents shouldn't subsidize Hillcrest
Updated: May 14, 2015 - 2:38 am

As a life-long resident of the Owensboro-Daviess County community, and a hard-working lower middle-class citizen, I am disgusted with the recent vote to increase the occupational tax to cover the operating expense of the Hillcrest Golf Course.

Nature vitally important
Posted: May 03, 2015

I am writing to voice my immeasurable disappointment in Mayor Ron Payne and the city commissioners' leadership regarding Hillcrest Golf Course. My family's home backs up to Hillcrest so this matter is very personal to me. We moved into our home on Taylor Drive seven years ago from Lexington. I am a proud mother of four and this location was ideal — great schools and the lovely green space right behind us. Over the years, my family has flown kites at Hillcrest, we've wizzed down its hills on sleds, my children  have served golfers lemonade with their neighborhood friends, my husband and I have run the cart track in the evenings, we have fished in the pond and we all enjoy watching the geese and rabbits that make a home on the course.

Protect American workers when it 
comes to immigration
Posted: May 03, 2015

What limits on immigration serve the nation best, particularly the interest of working Americans? For several years the question of limits on both legal and illegal immigration have been batted back and forth between labor, business, church, state and the working public. Each team has their own personal interest to defend, and the game seems to have no rules. The law of supply and demand, however, will win in the end. All sides seem to fall in only two camps.

Thousands are 
against closing 
Hillcrest Golf Course
Posted: May 03, 2015

Local residents should be proud that our city has one of the best trained puppet shows in the USA. Led by puppet master Ron Payne our city is once again seen as a joke. Many citizens have not gotten over the insurance tax that was crammed down their throats.

Traffic problem can be eased without closing Hillcrest
Posted: April 30, 2015

Mayor Ron Payne strikes again! Closing Hillcrest Golf Course, this time under the pretense that a roundabout is needed at Foors Lane and Old Hartford Road. Hillcrest would lose land, causing it necessary to close, which would also be questionable.
