His opponent, Alex LaRue of Hodgenville, received 6,860 votes.

    When he looks back on his life and career, Paul Powell said he loved his time in the Air Force and the people he got to work with "from privates to two star generals."
    "I was an old farm boy from Meade County, and had the opportunity to see the world," he said.
    After graduating from Meade County High School, Powell, now 86, went to work for the L&N Railroad in Louisville. He had been doing administrative work when he decided to look for something different.

  • Guest editorial: Poor voter turnout

    By The Courier-Journal

    Last Wednesday, the day Americans woke up to the results of Tuesday's midterm elections, was also a day of great historical significance in the United States.
    It was on Nov. 5, 1872, that voting rights campaigner Susan B. Anthony made history by casting a ballot on election day in Rochester, N.Y., though women had no legal right to vote. That act of defiance resulted in her arrest.

  • Thank you, veterans, for your selfless service

    This week, we recognize our veterans and thank them for their selfless service to the United States of America. I join you in honoring all of the brave men and women who have served.

    By The Kentucky New Era

    There are so many reasons to be thankful for autumn in Kentucky. The brilliant landscape of yellow, orange and red trees. A merciful end to those humid summer days that feel like steamy soup hanging in the air even after sundown. Chili suppers, school festivals and the anticipation of Thanksgiving.

  • Kentucky keeps history alive

    When it comes to keeping history alive, few states can match Kentucky.
    The Kentucky Historical Society, for example, will celebrate its 180th birthday in 2016, the same year our country will mark the 50th anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act. That legislation kicked off the modern era of protecting and promoting the hundreds of thousands of artifacts and sites that, collectively, tell the story of who we are.

  • Reed sworn in as school board member

    Kaelin Reed was elected as the District 2 representative on the Marion County Board of Education on Nov. 4.

    On Nov. 11, he was sworn in by Marion County Judge/Executive John G. Matttingly. Originally, the plan was for Reed to take his oath of office during the Nov. 11 meeting, but it was moved up due to a scheduling issue.

    This also means all the seats on the board are full for the first time since May, when Michael Mullins resigned as a board member.
