  • LETTER: Looking for answers

    I just have a few questions:

     Isn’t bonding authority something like a limit on a credit card?  Is  maxing  out at a higher level always a good thing?

    Aren’t amenities like nice eateries and more local jobs what the voters wanted when they voted “wet”?  So why does a city official just cite “more tax revenue”?  Instead of worrying so much about people consuming a drink with dinner, shouldn’t we be more worried about politicians who are intoxicated with tax increases?

  • For Armstrong, farming is women's work

    Foggy Bottom Farm is 400 acres on a bend in the Salt River. Michelle Armstrong and her husband Kevin have raised hogs, beef cattle, tobacco, corn, soybeans and hay on this fertile land that’s been in her family for three generations.

    Recently Armstrong was named vice president of the Kentucky Women in Agriculture, a 10-year-old organization dedicated to educating and providing a network for women farmers across the state.

  • LETTER: Keep watch on where tax money is spent

    “What we want to do is become a drop-off location,” Wheeler said. “I want this to be an ongoing thing.”
