    Candidates must examine
    their motives

  • We need to regain chivalry

    What ever happened to chivalry?

    It’s a question that begs an answer in the wake of so many men in the public eye being accused of acting boorishly, and even criminally toward women.

The powerful Southern Baptist group, which has 2,400 churches and 750,000 members across the state, has ousted congregations that bless gay unions and welcome people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender as pastors and missionaries.

  • Choosing between live or fresh cut trees

    So which type of tree reflects your holiday style?  Do you get a fresh cut, artificial, or balled and burlapped tree?  Or do you just go out-of-town and let someone else do the decorating?  All are certainly acceptable, but there are different rules that apply to each. Obviously, the artificial ilk has few restrictions, but there are some things to remember if you get a fresh cut or balled and burlapped tree for planting after the holidays.  

  • KDA sponsoring poster and essay contest

    Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles invites Kentucky students to show in words and pictures how food gets “From Farm Gate to Dinner Plate” in the Kentucky Department of Agriculture’s (KDA’s) annual Poster and Essay Contest.

  • Drivers urged to be aware during deer season

    Deer season is upon us and that means Kentucky drivers must be particularly aware of their surroundings while traveling along Kentucky’s streets and highways. As an avid outdoorsman, I know how critical it is to pay attention to deer crossing the road during this time of year.
