  • Halloween event is a treat

    Monday night’s Trick or Treat on Main Street was yet another reminder of why life in a small town can’t be beat.

    The annual Halloween event is truly a family gathering of good fun, lots of candy, plenty of smiles and some of the cutest kids who open their bags wide in the hopes for plenty of treats.

    They came as ghouls, pirates, firemen and soldiers. Some dressed as princesses, fairies, bunnies and witches. Plenty of the adults got into the spirit as well, dressing up and joining in on the fun.

  • From our readers - Don’t leave presidential ballot blank, look at platforms

    If you plan to leave the Presidential choice blank on your ballot, then step back and look at the party platforms. There is no such thing as the perfect candidate or the perfect party. Never in history have the two party platforms been more opposite. Democrat platform equals more government control over your life by way of left wing federal judges and left wing Supreme Court judges. Don’t leave it blank. Speak up for your values.

  • From our readers - Supports Trump

    To my Christian friends,

    As you know, our freedoms in this country are under attack. The left is out to take over our government.

    Hillary Clinton has said we are going to have to convince these people to change their minds. She is talking about Christians and their beliefs in the Bible about homosexuality Read between the lines - she will use everything at her disposal to take our rights away.

  • A silver-lining in this election?

    This time next week, we will know who the next president of the United States will be.

    I actually do not feel entirely confident in that opening statement. Too much can, and likely will, happen between now and next Tuesday. This has already been the most bizarre presidential election in history and the only thing that will surprise me at this point is if the last few days pass by without new bombshells, email leaks, allegations or other unexpected twists and turns.

  • Honoring our local veterans

    The tumultuous election season is scheduled to end on November 8, when voters go to the polls. Most Americans will likely breathe a sigh of relief. But that same week, America will pause to honor the veterans whose sacrifice made voting possible.

  • From our readers - Higdon endorses Tipton

    I am writing to endorse Rep. James A. Tipton for re-election as State Representative for Spencer, Anderson and part of Bullitt counties.

    Kentucky needs leaders like Rep. Tipton. James has proven himself in this field as a farmer, real estate broker and a highly effective State Representative. As a native of Spencer County who grew up on a farm that he and his family still operated, Tipton has the sort of common sense that is changing State Government in a positive way.

  • From our readers - Right to Work is not what it seems

    The headline reads Right to Work in KY. The print size is easily twice as large as any other article, is in bold type and absolutely dominates the page. Unfortunately, the substance of the text just doesn’t live up to the hype. The simple fact is that “right to work” has absolutely nothing to do with anyone’s right to work; in Kentucky or anywhere in the United States. And the man who wrote the article knows it!

  • Ark is floating along smoothly

    My wife and I didn’t take a cruise for our wedding anniversary last week, but we did board a huge ship that was docked on dry land in rural Grant County.

    We visited the Ark Encounter, the lifesize replica of Noah’s Ark that has  generated no shortage of controversy since its announced construction several years ago. It also continues to attract massive crowds, and on Saturday, we were just two of nearly 7,000 people who visited the attraction.
