• Resident concerned about transgender issue


    I was appalled when I heard students from the high school speaking of a male student using the girls’ restroom. Apparently the principal had given him permission as he felt he was a girl locked in a male body. Some of the girls believe their rights had been violated as a male in their restroom just might decide, “Well maybe I am male” and take advantage of the situation.

  • CCRTA to donate to the food pantry


    The week of Oct. 18-24, 2015 has been designated as Retired Teachers Week. The purpose of the week is to recognize the volunteer work that retired teachers do in the community.

    In 2014 an hour donated was worth $20.29. Statewide last year the Kentucky Retired Teachers Association members donated more than 981,168 hours, valued at $19.9 million. Just think how much it would be if every volunteer reported their hours.

  • 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.
