    Kids like lettuce, too!

    Dear McDonalds,
    Hey, listen up!
    Why don’t you put lettuce on kids meals?
    It would go good with the cheeseburgers.
    You people have no respect for our health. Lettuce is VERY healthy.
    Put lettuce on them. You would probably get more money.
    PLEASE put lettuce on them.
    Write back! And I mean it.
    Your customer,

  • Sen. Paul on his filibuster

    By Rand Paul

    U.S. Senator

    If I had planned to speak for 13 hours when I took the Senate floor to start my filibuster, I would’ve worn more comfortable shoes. I started the filibuster with the words, “I rise today to begin to filibuster John Brennan’s nomination for the CIA. I will speak until I can no longer speak” — and I meant it.

  • Letter: Heed the warnings

    You should watch the movie “V for Vendetta” and consider the content.

    You should watch the dud, “The Next Three Days,” and memorize the important parts.

    Remember that surrender of your freedom and rights invites brutality or death.

  • Letter: Donate to local community center

     The Community Service Center, Inc. was created by local churches to minister to the needy of Marion County. The First Christian Church in Lebanon is generous enough to allow us to work out of their building.  We provide emergency help with food, clothing, rent, utilities and prescriptions. We are a strictly a volunteer group using funds and supplies donated by some of the area churches, civic organizations and other generous benefactors. 

  • Big finish to a good session

    The 30-day session of the General Assembly concluded at midnight March 26, after two long days of hard work and bipartisan collaboration to ensure the state’s most pressing issues were addressed. 

  • Kentucky farmers could benefit from hemp bill

    It took nearly a year of study, months of debate and several long nights to finalize, but the General Assembly achieved its biggest goal this legislative session when it enacted far-reaching reforms of Kentucky’s public retirement systems early last week.
