    We would like to extend a huge “thank you” to the following people and places for making our float such a huge success for the Tobacco Festival. 

    To Lloyd Jackson, thank you for putting up with us and allowing us to use your garage and equipment for the parade for the past three weeks to make this all possible.

    To JJ Ward, Sports Obsession and Convenient, thanks to all of you for not only your hard work, but your great ideas and dedication to seeing that we had one beautiful float and finished in time.

  • Office assists with Capitol visit plans

    Are you planning a visit to Washington, D.C.?  Whether you are coming on a school trip, family vacation or business trip, my office can help you make arrangements for some of the more popular attractions and landmarks in our nation’s capital.  We are available to help you reserve tours of the U.S. Capitol Building, Pentagon, and White House.  These tours are an excellent way to see the highlights of Washington at no charge to you.

  • State nature preserves land, water, wildlife

    “Buy land,” Mark Twain once said.  “They’re not making any more of it.”

    That investment advice has been taken to heart by the Kentucky State Nature Preserves Commission, which formally celebrated 35 years of service last week.

    Since it began, the commission has permanently set aside more than 25,000 irreplaceable acres for future generations.  Their 60 nature preserves range from the Blanton Forest near Virginia to Three Ponds along the Mississippi River.

  • Railroad needs to clean up in Worthville

    Editor:

    We are truly blessed to live in a geographical area that has three rivers, an interstate highway and railroad. This has enabled the county to draw several internationally known industries and businesses to this area producing numerous jobs for local people and greatly increasing the revenue for Carroll and surrounding counties. For this I am grateful.

  • Report offers insight on crashes on highways across Kentucky

    While no one can accurately predict where a traffic accident might occur, information gathered by the Kentucky State Police gives us a pretty good idea of when the odds are certainly in our favor.

    Based on its latest annual report, which was released last week, one of the safest places to be on the highway in 2010 was in a vehicle driven at dawn on a Sunday in March by a woman in her late 60s or early 70s who was making her way between Owensboro and Henderson on the Audubon Parkway.

  • Rotary extends thanks to local businesses

    Editor:

    My apologies to Interim Healthcare, United Citizens Bank and Design with the Tymes whose names I omitted in my thanks in The News-Democrat, and who donated items to our golf scramble silent auction. Thank you for your support.

  • Widening, upgrades needed on Ky.’s I-71

    While there is a debate nationwide on the need for upgrading our highways and bridges, we know we have problems that need to be addressed on this region’s interstate highway.

    Those of us who drive Interstate 71 frequently know the issues. It’s too busy and needs to be six lanes; and those  need to be in much better condition than they are today.
