  • Rich should 'step up'

    "One man with courage is a majority." - Thomas Jefferson

    The spirit of Carnegie needs to be reborn in the multi-, multi-millionaire, billionaire class.

    They have the excess funds to build bridges, dams, roadways, libraries, universities and vocational schools.

    The middle class and families need not, should not, be burdened with these issues.

    The super rich elites need to step up and do what is good for all and the future.

    Congressman responds to Mullins’ guest editorial

    I would like to respond to Michael Mullins' April 25th guest editorial. It is difficult to discern the full context of my speech when he only read a few short excerpts, however I would like to clarify my underlying point regarding the budgetary situation.

    Racism in Raywick

    Wow. What's going on in this country lately? Racism is alive and well, I guess...

    First we have the "stand your ground" law in Florida giving rise to a murder of an innocent young black teenager by a white/Hispanic self-appointed neighborhood watch-resident-trigger-happy racist, and now the Raywick, Ky bar owner who thinks all black people should be banned from her bar and property because they have dark skin and therefore will cause trouble?

  • April is Child Abuse Awareness Month

    Kentucky has already seen the destructive power of nature as storms and tornadoes have hit several communities across the Commonwealth this spring. There have been lives lost, whole communities devastated and families uprooted from their homes.

  • Letter: Veteran condemns killing of civilians

    As a Vietnam veteran, I must speak out condemning the recent civilian killings in Afghanistan by one of our U.S. soldiers in the heat of active battle with the enemy, civilians sometimes get injured or killed. That is an unfortunate cost of waging war.
    For anyone to seek out innocent civilians, in their homes, to kill is blatantly murder and should be dealt with accordingly. Sadly, our other soldiers will be targeted now out of retaliation for this crime. My prayers go out to all those families affected.

  • Business cares about its employees during storm

    I would like to commend Joy Mining Machinery for their recent dedication to their employees in the midst of the storms on Friday. March 2. Not only did they cancel second shift, but they also took the time and effort on Saturday to call employees to verify that they were OK.  

    This small action shows their true appreciation of their employees. Lebanon is lucky to have a company that still supports the value of what really makes up a company - the employees. May we keep all those affected by the storms in our prayers.

    Bringing back the Red Cross

    John G. Mattingly and the Marion County Fiscal Court recently approved funding to help the Red Cross purchase disaster relief supplies.

    With their foresight, the Red Cross is back in Marion County in a big way. Communities all over the world benefit from Red Cross services in their times of need, and with this commitment, Marion County will be better prepared for the next ice storm or big flood.

  • Letter: Great job by Knights and Lady Knights

    We have enjoyed the MCHS boys and girls basketball games this year and would like to point out a few really special people involved in each and every event.
    First, the coaches and players have had a great season.
    Volunteers show up for every game and do a remarkable job, and the MCHS administration and staff make sure the bases are covered for every game.
    The faithful fans deserve credit for showing up to enjoy every game, and the students encourage the players and give us all a lift.
