  • Kentucky industries and cities honored for energy savings

    Even before it became a state in 1792, Kentucky’s energy potential was well-known.

    It all began in 1750, when Dr. Thomas Walker, one of Kentucky’s early explorers, discovered coal here, and our profile began expanding significantly 40 years later, when the first commercial coal mine opened in what is now Lee County.

  • Challenge issued to vote May 19

    Editor:

    Hundreds of thousands of young Americans are serving in our military to preserve our way of life, and yet fewer and fewer of our citizens are participating in our democracy. May 19 is primary 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.

  • Time to legalize industrial hemp
  • Local Republican party a lead sponsor of gubernatorial debate

    Why do we need alternative views?  Why a Republican Party.  Our Nation was founded on a two party system.  There are many reasons why a second political party is needed in Carroll County.  It is a known fact that honest debate is crucial to political progress.  Regardless of which party you prefer, honest and informed debate is a crucial basis of our freedom. 

  • Legislature works to improve film and television opportunities

    Kentucky may be a couple of thousand miles away from Hollywood, but that hasn’t diminished our connections to the entertainment industry.  Some of today’s most famous actors, for example – George Clooney, Jennifer Lawrence and Johnny Depp – were born here, while Tom Cruise spent part of his youth in Louisville.

  • Rand explains the legislative process

    If it’s true that it takes years of preparation to be an overnight success, the same can also be said of many laws approved during a legislative session.

    This year is a prime example, with several high-profile measures having been considered by the General Assembly before.  That includes those addressing booster seats, dating violence and an update of the state’s telecommunications laws.
