  • Letter: County judge supports Beshear

    During the past four years as the economy has tanked, jobs have disappeared, and  everyone has had to tighten their belts, Marion County has fared far better than  many other communities.

    With all the debate in this country about immigration reform and immigrants needing to learn English, I would like to address the language of another group that is really difficult to grasp.

  • Epic fails, free throws and Coach Ferriell

    “Taters!”

    That’s one of my nicknames, which was coined by my middle school basketball coach and physical education teacher at St. Charles Middle School - the infamous David Ferriell.

    “Girl, you been eatin’ too many taters,” he would say, teasing me during P.E. class.

  • Law is the law

    Dennis George made an open records request of the Lebanon Tourist and Convention Commission on Sept. 23. As of Oct. 20, he had not received the records he requested.

    That is unacceptable.
