  • Those ugly signs are symbols of our freedom

    Some people hate dandelions. They even spray their yard for them and do everything possible to keep the weeds with the bright yellow blooms from overtaking their yard. While many consider them a nuisance and unsightly, they do serve as a refreshing symbol that spring has sprung and after a long, cold winter, it’s nice to be reminded of that.
    It’s the same way with political yard signs. They are often unsightly, sometimes seem uncontrollable and they start to appear about the same time as the dandelions, and are usually less appealing.

    Questions are being raised after an incident Sunday morning in which Spencer County EMS employees were confronted with an armed patient with no law enforcement backup available.
    A call from KSP Dispatch shortly before 6 a.m. Sunday sent medical first responders to a home on Normandy Road to check on an unconscious male, possibly related to drug or alcohol use.

  • Life is precious and sacred

    Life is precious. We learn that in various ways and from different people. This week, we’re reminded about the value of life from a Spencer County couple who suffered through a miscarriage and the loss of their preborn daughter.
    Thankfully, the mother will be holding their 6-week old daughter tightly on Mother’s Day, with a greater understanding than many of us may have – that life is indeed precious.
