    While the Thanksgiving Day rush for door buster deals may focus on national stores, small businesses are certainly a big part of the holiday shopping mix.

  • Thanksgiving history with a Kentucky twist

     While the Fourth of July is understandably the most American holiday, Thanksgiving can at least lay claim to being the first.

    Its origin, as even our youngest students can tell us, began long before our independence, and we’re now just seven years away from the 400th anniversary of when the Pilgrims and Native Americans held a three-day feast.

  • Corrections, Nov. 26

    A cutline on page B1 of the Nov. 12 edition incorrectly identified Katie Overstreet as Kaylee Wheatley.

    Due to a reporter’s error, a mistake was published in the Nov. 19 article, “School board looks to cut energy use, costs.” An item listed in other business should have read that the Marion County Board of Education approved shortened school days for three students in the Exceptional Child Education program.

    The story mistakenly read that the board approved three shortened school days. We apologize for any confusion. 

  • Parents should share parenting

    Months ago, a concerned grandmother came to my office.
    It was a Monday morning, and I was busy, but I could tell by the distressed look on her face that she needed someone to talk to.
    She proceeded to tell me about a situation involving her son and his custody battle involving his children. The court had ruled that he could only see his children every other weekend.
    She was devastated.
    Up to that point, she had been extremely involved in her grandchildren’s lives, and she was convinced this was going to change things dramatically.

  • Attention cattlemen - Vote yes on Nov. 20

    By Steve Downs
    2014 KCA President

    Fellow cattlemen - we are in a unique position to invest in our future in a way that will have a profound effect on our livelihood for years to come. On Nov. 20, a referendum will be held, asking you to support an additional dollar check-off for our Kentucky producers. This investment in our future will help ensure that, as cattlemen, we are best positioned to maintain our prosperity even in the face of the challenges that could lie ahead.
