  • Keeping our community safe and strong

    At a recent Homeland Security meeting I heard about the “If you see something, say something” campaign. The initiative was created to encourage people to report suspicious activity in their community.

  • City ordinance on fowl is foul

  • Letters to the editor, June 5

    Impressed with Turtleman
    The day I met the Turtleman was absolutely the best day of my life. I’ll have to admit I was very skeptical at first. So many people I have met have let me down.
    But I can assure you he is the real deal. He reminds me so much of my dad, who died when he was 49. I have not found anyone I have fully trusted or loved so much since then. He loved the outdoors and was the best role model a kid could have.

  • Open & accountable

    The Gravel Switch Fire Department is going through some big changes.
    Recently, the leadership of the department has changed, with Kevin Rogers taking over as chief and Jamie Garrett taking over as assistant chief. They replace former chief Larry Vaughn and his assistant chief Vincent Tungate.
    The Gravel Switch community has also created a new advisory council to provide oversight and assistance to the fire department.

  • Celebrate academic achievements

    As we put another school year behind us – and as parents wait for the inevitable cries of “I’m bored” in the not-too-distant future – now is a good time to take a closer look at all of the good things going on academically.
    Over the long term, perhaps the best news came out of a 2012 Harvard study, which showed Kentucky tying for fifth among the states when measuring the gains our students have made over the last 20 years in math, reading and science.

  • Rise above the haters

     We’ve all heard the quote, "Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me."

    But, as most of us have learned, words can hurt. They can hurt us deeply. They can hurt much more than a slap in the face or a punch in the gut. They can hurt our spirit. They can hurt us to our core.
