  • Small business fraud only matter of time

    It’s not a matter of if, but when a small business will be affected by theft. Whether it is from scams, counterfeiters or even employees, experts speaking at a recent Chamber of Commerce meeting provided advice on how business owners can protect themselves.

    “There’s more and more fraud happening every day,” said Pam Mason, vice president of operations at the Peoples Bank. “It’s unbelievable how many fraudulent cashier’s checks we see in this small community.”

  • LETTER: Senior class says, "thanks"

    The Senior Class of 2010 would like to thank everyone that worked so hard to make the Chili Supper such a success! Hats off to all the parents that helped for their tremendous hard work.

    The Chili Supper wouldn’t be possible without the help of Robin Adcock and Lissi Petersen. These two ladies donated their time and cooked all the chili for us and we also should mention that we had rave reviews on the chili this year.

  • FAITH FOR TODAY: Shedding light

    There is a common misconception going around that we have to go to church on Sunday morning.  I know that sounds like an odd thing for a pastor to say, but give me a minute to explain.

    We need each other.  After all God Himself created us to be in community together. I am not in any way saying that you do not need to meet together with other believers.  On Sunday morning the church should fellowship together.  On Sunday morning the church should worship together.  On Sunday morning the church should learn and grow together.

  • BELIEVE IN HIM: Time management

    Have you ever been through a season of disorganization and chaos at some point in your life? It may seem that days went by without notice and before you knew it you missed out on an entire week or even longer. Maybe even now you feel as if you are always rushing to be somewhere, rarely have any time to relax at home or cannot enjoy the things in life that matter to you most.

  • Ethics committee to examine deal by EDA director

    Actions by Economic Development Authority (EDA) Director Annette King are under question following a recent commercial real estate transaction in which she acted as the dual agent.

    Spencer County Fiscal Court approved a motion for the county’s ethics committee to review any possible conflicts of interest when King assisted in the sale of a commercial building at Setters Center last month.

    EDA Chairman Dennis Eisenback said at fiscal court Monday morning that he had researched the issue internally and believes that “we’ve done nothing wrong.”

  • Western Ky gets bitter intro into D-I

    Did any team north of Lane Kiffin in Knoxville and south of Bill Lynch in Bloomington have a nightmare season to compare with Western Kentucky and Louisville?

    If football ‘09 in Bowling Green and Louisville had a color it would be blue. Fan blue(s), coach firing blue, bone bruise blue.

    At Western Kentucky. Imagine your beer-holding hand chained to railroad tracks and a freight train runs it over, then backs up, does it again, 68, 63 and 62 times.
