  • Educate yourself about pipelines on Nov. 5

    The WWII vintage Tennessee Pipeline running through Marion County will soon carry hazardous liquids if the Kinder Morgan Company gets its way.

  • Support Jim Gray

    I’d like to say first this is the most important election in recent times.   
    It is disgusting when only 30 percent voted last year and look who we ended up with as governor. There is going to be a lot of out-of-state money coming in to influence the outcome of this election. The working and middleclass are going to be most affected by this election so GET OUT AND VOTE!
    I’m supporting Mayor Jim Gray for U.S. Senate because he is a proven leader.   

  • Voters can trust Brandon Reed

    We’d like to encourage your readers to get to know the candidates on the ballot before they vote this election. Presidential races sometimes overshadow down ballot races and this year is no exception. Please know there are other very important offices on the ballot including U.S. Senate, Congress, State Senate, all 100 seats of the Kentucky State House and city council races.

  • Beware for the black-legged tick

    The Kentucky Lyme Disease Association would like to encourage you to enjoy this beautiful fall weather but be aware it is the season for the black-legged tick. They are the smallest of all the ticks. The larvae and nymphs are even smaller. They can be as small as the period at the end of this sentence. In a Yale study, only 15 percent of patients ever remember a tick bite. Unlike mosquitoes, ticks do not die in the winter as many think. They hide in the bark of trees and under leaves to protect themselves from the cold just like they do in the heat of the summer.

  • Mesothelioma Awareness Day is Sept. 26

    Sept. 26 is Mesothelioma Awareness Day. The Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation selected this date and encourages congress, states and cities to acknowledge it. We cooperate with the Meso Foundation in memory of our younger son, Todd Hall (1967-2006) who was a victim of this rare and deadly cancer caused by asbestos exposure.
    When we learned that former Kentucky State Representative Ron Cyrus had died of mesothelioma we thought the Kentucky Legislature might honor his memory by officially recognizing Sept. 26 as Mesothelioma Awareness Day in Kentucky.   

  • Labor Day shout out
  • Sign of the times

    The Russians historically protected the Christ culture, not the Bolshevik-Nazi communists. WWII Nazis took off their uniforms and became Reds.
    Communism falls in Russia and is imported to America but it is called globalism. All global systems are meant to control regular people. These moguls care nothing about you, only control. Money equals power.

  • Trump the terrible

    When will Trump, his family and supporters see just how unhinged, ignorant of our constutional rights, the rule of law, and destructive his constant bashing of the media and others is? While Hilary Clinton is not perfect, she is qualified and a reasonable, sane human being. How many prominent Republicans and military professionals denouncing him will it take? Even if Trump loses this election, which he is currently, he will have done serious damage to our democratic republic with his hateful rhetoric.

  • Regarding the ‘nickel tax’ issue

    I am writing as a citizen of Marion County and as a teacher.
    It is reasonable that facilities need to be adequate and in good repair for the schools to operate effectively. As a citizen I would like a little more detail about what is needed and who determined these needs and their cost.

    Integrity matters
    Last week I was in my car when I heard an announcement for a special-called school board meeting that was to begin shortly. Knowing the Marion County School Board’s pattern for special-called meetings at inopportune times, I decided to attend.
    At the meeting I spoke to Marvin and Mark Gardner, and local attorney Ted Lavit. Let me say that I do not mind being associated with these fine gentlemen and I commend their civic involvement, but to set the record straight, I had no knowledge of their interests in being there.
