  • Watch for motorcycles and don’t throw mowed grass on road

    Since spring has arrived, and wonderful motorcycle weather is here, I'd like to put out some reminders to help make motorcycling safe.
    Please do not go out and buy your teenager a crotch rocket (sport/racing bike) or any other kind of bike until he/she takes the Kentucky Motorcycle Rider Education Program. Without proper training, these bikes can be death machines.

  • Letter to the editor: Silent hero

    Several weeks ago, two men, lifelong friends, were found dead in a cabin in the small community of St. Joe, in Marion County. They met weekly to visit and have a meal together.
    It appears that Phillip suffered a heart attack and his friend, Joe Boy, died also with heart failure, while trying to perform CPR to save his friend.
    When I was discussing this with my son, he said, “Wow, what an honorable way to die, trying to save your friend. He’s a silent hero.”

    A more connected and competitive Kentucky
    The vast majority of today’s businesses and consumers utilize innovative 
    services like wireless and broadband — so why is Kentucky still forcing 
    companies to invest in outdated, nearly obsolete technologies?
    Senate Bill 10 would give telecom providers the freedom to allocate their 
    resources as they see fit. For most, this means investing in the 21st century 
    technologies that Kentuckians have come to rely on.

    Higdon helps make Kentucky ‘open for business’
    The Kentucky Chamber applauds Senate Majority Whip Jimmy Higdon on his leadership to make right-to-work legislation a reality during the first week of the 2017 General Assembly, ensuring Kentucky is a state where businesses want to locate.  

  • Higdon puts politics ahead of middle class

    I'm writing to express my disappointment with Senator Higdon's support of the Right to Work bill. I'm in complete agreement with Vincent Ballard's letter of Jan. 11, but I can't say I'm surprised by Sen. Higdon's action. After all, that is what Republicans do, putting party politics ahead of the interests of the middle class. Kentucky will now join the likes of Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, Arkansas and Louisiana in a race to the bottom thanks to our governor, senate and congress.

  • Letter to the editor: Higdon’s Right to Work vote is a slap in the face

    To say that your recent vote to approve for Right to Work and prevailing wage legislation is disheartening would be an understatement. Your vote was a figurative slap in the face of the hard working people you have sworn to represent. Instead of standing up for the men and women of your district, and state, you chose to follow party lines. It’s as if you forgot how many in your district work at union shops. Ones like the distilleries, Ford, G.E. and construction companies.

  • Letter to the editor: Marion County Cattleman are kind

    “No, I’m not from around here.” I frequently have to respond to the question about my lack of central Kentucky accent. And that is why the column “Be more kind” by Stevie Lowery touched me so deeply. Having spent nearly all my years in situations during education, career and even choices where I live, in non-traditional female roles, I have examples beyond number of feeling isolated and not embraced or even included. It is not easy moving to a small town where families have lived for generations and myself and my husband a mere ten years.
