    Finding the date, Williams made a vow.

From those first moments in the battle for freedom on colonial soil to the deserts of the Middle East today, their amazing acts of selflessness for this nation has been constant.

  • Franklin shares info on bath salts, synthetic marijuana

    This month, I’d like to give readers a bit more insight on two topics you may know little about: bath salts and synthetic marijuana. These were two items among synthetic drugs that we are to report on through The Office of National Drug Control Policy, in order to keep our coalition updated. You may have heard of these drugs and did not realize they are deadly. With hard drugs running rampant in the streets, it is easy to put these in the back of your minds but they are in fact deadly.

    Some debts never can be repaid.

    A 71-year-old Hodgenville man was guest of honor at a surprise party recently coordinated by a group of elderly men who owe their long lives to his awareness, bravery and service.

    One of those days is Memorial Day, which we celebrate this upcoming weekend.
