  • Department of Parks declares war on Christmas

    Editor:

    Is this nation that prints “In God We Trust” on its currency at war with Christmas? Sure sounds like it to me. Are Christians who are exercising our First Amendment Rights supposed to hide in shame for fear we will “offend” someone? It sure sounds like that is what our government is trying to make us do. Is political correctness more important than serving our God? Apparently the Kentucky Department of Parks thinks so. 

  • Get out the vote in the 2015 General Election

    Editor:

    Hundreds of thousands of young Americans are serving our military to preserve our way of life, and yet fewer and fewer of our citizens are participating in our democracy. Nov. 3 is General Election Day when Kentuckians will be selecting candidates for governor, commissioner of agriculture and other constitutional officers. Members of Carroll County Farm Bureau hope every voter will make their voices heard by casting informed votes for our government leaders.

  • Gillespie: Open heart to gay community

    Editor:

    The world is a constantly changing place, and rural communities have historically been slowest to catch up.

  • Elect politicians who will stand up for Christian faith

    Editor:

    I am not a liberal/progressive Democrat. I’m not a Republican. My party is the Watchmen Party. Read Ezekiel chapter 33 in the Bible.

    It’s not about what party you’re in. If you are a godly man or woman, one day you will stand before the Lord Jesus and you will have to give an account of what you do or say. We need to put men or women in office/position who will stand up for our Christian faith.

  • Resident concerned about transgender issue

    Editor:

    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

    Editor:

    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.

  • Roberts couple raises more than $2,000 for ACS

    Editor:

    We would like to thank everyone for their moral support to us and financial donations to the American Cancer Society for last Sunday’s Chicago Marathon. Thanks to the generosity of friends, family and community members, we raised $2,107 for ACS, which exceeded our fundraising goal of $2,000.

  • Gilbert supports Spann for Ag Commissioner

    Editor:

    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.
