• Gilbert supports Spann for Ag Commissioner


    The office of Kentucky Commissioner of Agriculture oversees the safety of much of the food we eat to the marketing of the Commonwealth’s signature brand, Kentucky Proud. If a product is grown or raised in Kentucky, it is likely a part of the Department of Agriculture.  This includes our state’s aquaculture, livestock, equine program, fruits, vegetables and grains to name a few.

  • Legion Post 41 hosts successful event


  • Heroism of First Responders remembered


    On some anniversaries we celebrate. On others we reflect.

    The 14th anniversary of the attack on America and New York’s World Trade Center is one of the times for reflection. There is truly nothing to celebrate in the extraordinary tragedy of 9/11.

    As much as I would like to forget some of them, the images from that day will never be out of my mind, nor will the victims and their families.

  • Thanks extended for help with event


    I want to thank all the businesses and people that donated and helped on the Breast Cancer Benefit for Cindy Tingle.

    Thank you so much.

  • Sheriff thanks all who helped with trail ride


    The second annual Sheriff Jamie Kinman Scholarship Trail Ride, which took place on Saturday, Aug. 28, was a huge success! The proceeds of the trail ride will benefit local students who plan to attend college, in the form of an academic scholarship. We had around 70 riders this year and raised enough money to give three $1,000 scholarships. I look forward to rewarding students within our community with this money in hopes of allowing them financial relief while striving to follow their dreams.

  • Poker Run organizers offer gratitude


    “Christmas in August Poker Run” was a huge success Sunday August 16, 2015. We were able to donate $7,149.15

    We would like to say “Thanks” to all those involved with the Christmas in August Poker Run. Without businesses donating, people selling & buying raffle tickets, T-Shirts, 50/50 tickets and riders donating their time, there is no way WE could have raised over $7,000!
