A thank you to our advertisers, readers for COVID-19 support

Simply put, the era of COVID-19 is not a good time to be in the newspaper industry. (Although for that matter, it also isn’t a good time to be in radio, the restaurant industry or pretty much any business or profession that isn’t selling Clorox or Lysol products…lol.) Numerous...

Times-Tribune has had an office in Corbin for 128 years

As a young boy I delivered the Corbin Daily Tribune to customers in the downtown Corbin area. I have been in many of the buildings which housed apartments at that time. I climbed many steps on my route. After graduating from college I worked at WCTT radio station, which was...

With fireworks, please be mindful of your neighbors … and their pets

My dogs have become drug addicts. Over the last week, we have been forced to medicate our two Shih Tzus nightly because the area around our house has been inundated with fireworks. I would not be surprised if some of those neighbors took advantage of the closeout sales at the...

Remembering the worst summer of my life, until now

COVID-19 is far from being over. Although the United States has only 4 percent of the world’s population, it has 25 percent of coronavirus cases. As Americans, we pride ourselves at being number one. Well, we’re well on our way to being there with this virus. While most countries...

NIBROC cancellation is a punch to the gut

I knew it was coming, but still, it didn’t make it any easier to hear the news last Wednesday that this year’s NIBROC festival has been officially called off. Over the past eight years or so I have really grown to love downtown Corbin’s annual festival. As an employee of the News...

Despite COVID–19, options still remain to celebrate the Fourth of July

With the possible exception of those, who own stock in Clorox or Lysol, I think that we can all pretty much agree on one thing. COVID-19 stinks. First there were the business shutdowns, then the layoffs. Now we have the cancelation of events, such as NIBROC, Old Fashioned Trading...

Time for the hate on all sides to stop

A few weeks ago, I read a post that a friend of mine from college posted on his Facebook page about having “the talk” with his 10-year-old son. No, it wasn’t “that” talk…lol. This friend is black, and the talk he had with his son was what he should do if he encounters a police...

For many folks, COVID-19 appears to already be a thing of the past

Let me preface this column by saying I am not a medical expert, and my intention here is not to give my “professional opinion” about anything concerning the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. With that being said, it is clear to me that a large chunk of our population is simply no longer...

Lessons learned from 2020 primaries

So, what lessons can we take away from Tuesday’s election? By far, the biggest is that giving voters additional means to cast their ballot other than on election day is an effective way to increase turnout. I’m still not a fan of mail in ballots, or at least returning ballots by...
