  • 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.

  • POINT COUNTERPOINT: Preserve values, say no to Sunday sales

    There was a time when a reasoned, common-sense argument against easing restrictions on access to alcohol could be made and people would listen. Alcohol is a drug that can significantly decrease a person’s ability to make good, sound judgments and there is no shortage of statistics and data available to serve as evidence that alcohol is responsible for countless deaths and injuries each year.

  • POINT COUNTERPOINT: No legitimate reason to prohibit Sunday sales

    Let me start with a little history: The 21st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was ratified almost 80 years ago (Dec. 5, 1933), yet remnants of this epic failure (such as laws prohibiting Sunday sales of alcoholic beverages) still remain.

  • LETTER: Don’t be fooled by McConnell

    Sen. Mitch McConnell, as usual, let his anti-worker attitude show through by supporting a national right-to-work bill. I’m not surprised as he is paid big bucks by companies that don’t want to pay their employees good wages and benefits.

  • COLUMN: Thanksgiving Day is not for shopping

    Yes, I’m one of those crazy people. Those people who get out at 4 a.m. the day after Thanksgiving in the crowds, the traffic, the noise and the shopping lines. But it’s not for the best deals and it’s not because I absolutely have to have that $200 laptop (Limit five per store).
