  • U.S. Senate candidate - Dr. Rand Paul

    Dr. Rand Paul   1. Why did you decide to run for Senate? Well, I've become very concerned, like a lot of people are concerned about how big the deficit has become. I don't believe that a country can continue to live beyond its means forever. And I know that in my individual life, and most people you run into, you can't keep spending more money than you take in. And I think so many of the politicians up there on both sides of the aisle have just doing, just spend, spend, spend.

  • Getting along

  • Blackberry Peach Cobbler is a winner

    I put quite a few bags of blackberries in the freezer this summer, so I've had my eye out for new recipes to try using them. I experimented with several pie and coffeecake recipes, but this Blackberry-Peach Cobbler is the winner in my book. It's from the cookbook, "Down Home with the Neelys," which I got after watching their TV show on the Food Network. (I love their food, but can anyone be THAT happy?)

  • U.S. Senate candidate - Jack Conway

    Jack Conway   1. First, what would you consider your priorities if you are elected? First of all, jobs, job creation. We have 10 percent unemployment in this state. People feel like whatever they are doing in Washington, it's not working. It's not working in places like Lebanon, and that's why I'm focused on a hometown tax credit and a jobs plan. Now, I have an opponent when asked if he had a jobs plan said that people needed to work for lesser wages and needed some tough love. And I actually have a jobs plan.
