  • COLUMN: Voters expect, deserve explanations

    Monday night, the Spencer County Fiscal Court voted not to approve the sale of alcohol on Sundays, but those attending that meeting have no idea why.
    The issue was placed on the agenda several meetings ago by Magistrate Jerry Davis. One could assume because Davis brought up the issue, he was in favor of expanding the sale of alcoholic beverages to Sundays from 1 p.m. to midnight.
    So, it’s no surprise Davis made the motion to approve the ordinance.
    Magistrate Hobert Judd seconded the motion for the purpose of putting the issue out there for discussion.

  • COLUMN: With snow, school board made the right call

    In the three years I spent as the commanding officer of a Coast Guard Marine Safety Unit, my decisions had significant impact on all my stakeholders. One thing I got used to really quick was that almost every decision I made was subject to a Monday morning quarterbacking.

  • LETTER: Give thanks, give hope, give the gift of life

    As we gather with family during the holiday, many of us wish to give back and help others. Often, we struggle to find the time and means to do so. However, this Christmas, there is something everyone can do that costs nothing, takes less than a minute, and gives hope to thousands of children, adults, and their families, in need.

  • LETTER: Are you on Santa’s Team?

    A dear friend posted an article on Facebook about a mother who explained to her growing, inquisitive child about being on “Santa’s Team.” It was a sweet article that every parent would appreciate. Have you ever thought about the vast reach of Santa’s Team? In fact, I cannot remember when I wasn’t a member of Santa’s Team. It is one of my joys in life.

  • LETTER: Support conservatives in upcoming election

    The race for Senate is heating up. Matt Bevin is up in the polls and Senator McConnell is calling conservative patriots traitors and say they need a punch in the nose. The senator has been in DC for 30 years and he has done more than punch us in the nose. He has been right there helping the decline of our nation.
    There was a man that ran on the communist party ticket for president for years and years. Then about 30 years ago, he said he no longer needed to run. The Democrats had accepted the communist platform.
    Moving closer to home.

  • LETTER: Liquor sales on Sunday
  • LETTER: Keep the Lord’s day holy
  • COLUMN: CRAM THE CRUISERS!

    Last week, my former boss, comrade and counterpart in Anderson County, Ben Carlson, took to the pages of his newspaper to go on a little rant about Spencer County.
    Carlson, who readily admits he has a twisted sense of humor, attacked our competitive spirit all because he’s ashamed his county lost to us in a very important “contest” around this time last year.
    Well, dear readers, I do not question your competitive nature, but instead, I hope to invoke it because we are up against our neighbors in the same contest this year.
