    I’m not sure who first said it, but I’ve been told more than once that you can fix anything with duct tape and bailing wire. By now, I would think the federal government has run out of band aids, considering how many they have used in the last few years.

  • The Caring Place needs support

    On Nov. 22, 1992, The Caring Place opened its doors to women and children who were abused by their loved ones. Since that time, 6,000 people from Marion, Taylor, Nelson, Washington, Adair, Jefferson, LaRue and other counties have received services from our shelter. From the beginning, the outpouring of generosity and commitment from this community had exceeded our wildest dreams. We received cards and letters of encouragement and recognition from city and county officials, schools, businesses and churches.
