  • Sen. Paul on his filibuster

    By Rand Paul

    U.S. Senator

    If I had planned to speak for 13 hours when I took the Senate floor to start my filibuster, I would’ve worn more comfortable shoes. I started the filibuster with the words, “I rise today to begin to filibuster John Brennan’s nomination for the CIA. I will speak until I can no longer speak” — and I meant it.

  • Power of the Cross

    Stewart’s Creek Baptist Church presented a crucifixion drama, “The Power of the Cross,” on Friday, March 29, and Saturday, March 30. The drama illustrated the events described in the Gospels about Jesus final hours on the cross.

  • Cooperative spirit affected 2013 General Assembly

    The 2013 General Assembly wrapped up with two days State Rep. Terry Mills described as “hectic, contentious and productive.”
    "The taxpayers got their money's worth for those two days, anyway," he said.

  • Kentucky farmers could benefit from hemp bill

    It took nearly a year of study, months of debate and several long nights to finalize, but the General Assembly achieved its biggest goal this legislative session when it enacted far-reaching reforms of Kentucky’s public retirement systems early last week.


     Every time we think the Marion County Lady Knights can't do any more to impress us, they find another way.

    You would think finishing 39-0, winning a state championship and producing the first McDonald’s All-American in school history would be enough. But, not for these ladies.

  • Mission: Help Haiti

    Sometimes it takes stepping outside of your world and into someone else’s to truly appreciate how others live.
    And doing so can be a life-changing experience.
    Julie Robey’s life was forever changed on Feb. 9, the day she arrived in Haiti.
    Seeing photos of one of the poorest countries in the world is one thing, but seeing it in person is something entirely different.
    Robey couldn’t believe her eyes. She was in disbelief.
    “How is this part of our world?” Robey thought to herself after arriving in Haiti.
