  • Thursday is a time to honor veterans

    Nov. 11 is Veterans Day.  On this day every year, we should all take time to recognize the service of the more than 300,000 veterans who call Kentucky home.  These men and women have put their lives on the line to defend our nation.

    As a former Army officer and 11-year veteran, I am committed to supporting and advocating for the well-deserved benefits of our service members, veterans and their families and will continue to fight for all who wear or have worn the uniform.

    Editor:

    To the people from Project Comfort who came to my home and dug my water line, what kind and generous people you are to give your time and equipment for such a big job.

  • Beautify the county, hit the streets to take down campaign signs

    Now that the election is over, it’s time for the cleanup to begin.

    Some of you might think I’m talking about cleaning up the airwaves after all of the disgusting mud-slinging forced into our households through television campaign ads. Others might believe I’m talking about the mess in government. Pick your area of concern and the level of government  — local, county, state or national.

    This isn’t what I mean. I’m talking about the need to rid our communities of all the campaign signs.

  • Boater thanks Milton VFRD for assistance

    Editor:   This is a letter of appreciation to the services provided to my wife and me this past Saturday morning (Oct. 9) following our boat accident near Hanover Beach. The intra-agency cooperation between Kentucky and Indiana emergency services and nonemergency services (Clifty Creek Power Plant tow secured through the efforts of your crew) was impressive.
