  • REAL ID a real solution for Kentuckians

  • Letter to the editor: Road crew does great job

    Applause! Applause! Give the Marion County road crew a big hand! They do an outstanding job of spraying road right-of-ways at the appropriate time to control weeds. They recently sprayed along Short Line Pike before broad leaf weeds like poison hemlock go to seed.

  • Keep Marion County beautiful

    This column is being written and published specifically for the jerks that continue to vandalize the Scott’s Ridge lookout. It’s also for anyone who knows them. I’d like you to relay this message to them because I’m certain the delinquents who are trying to spoil one of the most beautiful views in Marion County don’t read a newspaper.
    Anyone who has attempted to ruin the splendor of the Scott’s Ridge lookout should know – you’re being watched.
    And, when you’re caught, you will be prosecuted.

    Support The Caring Place this Mother’s Day

  • Do something good

    Our community is full of really, really kind people.
    I’m reminded of that daily.
    Sometimes, it’s the small gestures of kindness I notice. Like the lady who works at the convenient store who gave me an unexpected but very much appreciated compliment recently while I was buying my cup of coffee. Or, the man who stopped me while I was walking down the sidewalk last week to share some positive feedback about something I wrote for the paper recently. Those small gestures of kindness can make a big difference in someone’s day.
