  • LETTER: Charter quenches thirst for power

    I read in the paper about the deposition of Dwight Martin and James Allen Tipton.  Both are great young men and we are lucky to have them as citizens of the county. No one would ever make me think that Dwight or James Allen would ever doing anything wrong.  I don’t think you could torture them into doing anything that was not 100 percent right, but there is a true perception out there and perceptions are more often as real than not.

  • LETTER: Paper irreplacable

    As we pass through the time of our community we sometimes forget we are leaving an indelible trail of our concerns, conclusions, rational and irrational judgments. We sometimes do not remember that the local newspaper serves more than just expressing current news.  It also forever reflects how things were accomplished (or not accomplished), whose influence prevailed, and why a community developed the way it did. It illustrates in detail the feelings, judgments, reasons and influence of the community’s leaders, would-be leaders and its citizens.

  • BELIEVE IN HIM: Ask yourself, am I going to heaven?

    This might be a question you’ve recently asked yourself concerning your spiritual nature. Do I know what will happen to me when I die? Will I go to heaven? These are just a few of the questions people ask themselves at some point in their life regardless of their religious beliefs and background. Maybe you’ve settled this issue already in your heart, but maybe you haven’t and you’re wondering if you’re right with God. This is the most important decision you’ll ever make. Are you sure you’re going to heaven?

  • Coaching is more complex than most understand

    Think high school coaching is little more than drawing up plays on a whiteboard, filling out rosters and running players through drills? Think again.

    Coaches of student-athletes at Spencer County High School were reminded of the enormous responsibilities they have Monday night during the monthly school board meeting, when Myron Thompson, director of risk management for the Kentucky School Boards Association, shared just how liable schools and coaches can be when it comes to dealing with accidents, injuries and deaths.
