  • LETTER: Position should be abolished, but the issue is how it is eliminated

    To the editor,

    I agree completely that the position of constable is outdated and that it needs to be abolished as a constitutional position. However, because of politics in Frankfort every recent attempt to eliminate the office has failed. Please note that the private citizen already has the power of felony arrest.

    Kentucky law is very clear.

    KRS 431.005 (6) A private person may make an arrest when a felony has been committed in fact and he or she has probable cause to believe that the person being arrested has committed it.

  • LETTER: Thank you from the Flahiff Family

    To everyone involved with the fundraising for the benefit in support of our family and support in general, we are completely overwhelmed by the love, support and generosity you have shown to us in this very difficult time. We thank each and every one of you from the bottom of our hearts.

    We’d like to say a special thanks to Pat Ballard for all the hard work and to our families and friends for the unconditional support. Also, Tammy Gowin, Joey Hayden, all the Goldmark Realtor’s family,  and the Inoac Team for everything they’ve done.

  • OPINION: How to flirt safely (by a guy who is definitely not about to be fired for harassment)

    Listen, there are some behaviors we can all agree are courtship and not predation! You get it, gentlemen, right?

    We all know that there’s a dance that goes on between men and women, if you will, a kind of ancient ritual that dates back to time immemorial.

    [Pauses to mop brow.]

    Like, for instance, here are a few examples of fun flirting that might be just, you know, this flirty business of media, ha ha ha HA, that we all know and love.

    [Oh god, oh god, oh god.]

  • OPINION: Republicans are failing the Roy Moore test

    “ ‘All this will I give you,’ he said, ‘if you will bow down and worship me.’ ” — Matthew 4:9

    The prospect of Sen. Roy Moore has been both horrifying and clarifying. It would be difficult to design a more controlled, precise test of the moral gag reflex in politics.

  • OPINION: McConnell enjoys tax bill victory, Bevin loses support

    In the space of a few hours last weekend, one of Kentucky’s top two political leaders scored a big victory he badly needed, and the other suffered an embarrassing and perhaps damaging defeat he didn’t need to risk.
