  • Three steps forward, four steps back

    For all of the steps forward the Marion County School System has taken in the last year, it appears that they have taken a giant step backwards this spring.

    From the meeting notes of the Marion County High School Site Base Council, it appears that Marion County High School has once again hired Anthony Epps as an assistant coach for both the football and girls basketball teams.

  • Yard sale leftovers? Donate to The Caring Place

    The staff at The Caring Place hopes that everyone enjoys their yard sale adventures this weekend.

    The Caring Place has a full house at this time and several of our families are getting ready to move into their own homes. Please keep in mind that they have left their homes with very few personal items and no furniture.

    If you have any furniture or household items that you would like to donate to our residents please take them to The Caring Closet (Tuesday through Friday).

  • Girls rule

    Girls in Marion County are lucky to have such good support from organizations like Girls on the Run, 4-H, and Girls Scouts. We need to give a big pat on the back to the adult volunteers and parents that help make these programs available to our girls. With these programs, girls learn to believe in themselves and to grow up to be strong and accomplished women.

  • 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.
