  • From our readers - Bevin and Trump off to good start

    We now have a Kentucky governor that is interested in taking Kentucky from being listed as one of the top most corrupt states/commonwealths in the Union.

    He has done much to put Kentucky in line to bring businesses with the Right to Work law. Surrounding states have been eating our lunch by getting more big businesses in their states than we do. Now we are on an equal footing and it’s up to the negotiators to get the companies.

  • Covering your community for 150 years

    One hundred and fifty years ago, Spencer County and the rest of the United States was attempting to heal from a civil war that divided a nation, communities and even families.

  • Never give up

    Most of America tuned into the Super Bowl Sunday night, and most of America was likely tempted to tune out when the game turned lopsided, with Atlanta forging ahead to take a 28-3 lead late in third quarter.

  • Charter schools: an opportunity for all

    Kentucky felt an earthquake on November 8, 2016 that drastically changed the makeup of Frankfort and provided the Bluegrass state with a viable path to finally adopt needed reforms. With an eager Governor and a General Assembly intent on improving Kentucky’s business climate and education system, Kentuckians from all parts of the state should be excited about one thing: opportunity.

  • Great once again

    This week our nation experienced a wonderful American political tradition, as we witnessed the peaceful transfer of executive power. The new President  assumed office riding a wave of voter enthusiasm not seen since Reagan. For an accurate barometer of that enthusiasm, one should look beyond even the popular vote totals and the Electoral College.
