  • Numerous passers-by offer assistance to Elk Creek woman

    Finding oneself in a broken down car in the pouring rain on the way to the Taylorsville Post Office might not sound like a blessing for most people, but for Elk Creek resident Sue Raisor, it turned out to be just that.
    Early last week, while running errands, Raisor had only one stop left — the post office.
    After grabbing a bite to eat, Raisor headed toward her last stop with the rain pouring down all around her.
    “I pulled in [to the post office], and my car quit,” she recounted Monday afternoon.

  • LETTER: Support Kim King

    I am proud to share my conservative principles with the State Representative of the 55th District, Kim King.
    A district representative is our connection to state government, and beyond to the federal level, and I believe she represents us well.
    King takes her personal pride of our community into state government, representing us, as Kentucky continues to play its vital role in the nation. King’s principles guide her to attract new business and good paying jobs to our community, as she embraces economic development, not condemns it.

  • Leaves need water and food, but people need God's word

    It’s that time of year again when the leaves are changing. As the weather grows colder the leaves put on their fall colors. We get to enjoy crisp cool days and beautiful orange, red, and gold hillsides.
    This year the colors are not quite as brilliant; many trees are shedding their leaves with hardly a bright color to show. The drought this summer has left its mark in the fall foliage. Without the rain the trees could not pull needed nutrients out of the ground. They are not as healthy, so they are not showing off as much this year.
