  • The nickel makes sense

    By Bill Adams, Ph.D

  • Vote for future progress, vote for the nickel

    By Joe F. Mattingly

    I was just going through the bills I’ve gotten last week that I put in a stack as the week goes and sit down on Thursday nights and write out some checks and get in the mail on Fridays. Believe me when I tell you I know what tight times are. I’ve been self-employed now for 40 years and have had to use some inventive money management techniques to get bills paid, make payrolls, and try to acquire additional properties of which I can use to finance my retirement at some point in time.  

  • What the nickel will do for our kids and community

    By Tara Tatum

  • We want the best for our children

    By Kurt and Amy Mattingly

    We are Marion County, born and raised. We are products of the Marion County schools and community. We moved away for a brief period to obtain degrees, then returned home to marry, work and raise a family. We believe in Marion County for our futures, for our schools, and for our children. Now it’s Marion County’s turn to believe in us.

  • Don’t let this opportunity slip by

    On Nov. 8, we have a chance to invest in the future of our greatest resource – our children and grandchildren – all youth of Marion County.
    Education pays in so many ways as it prepares our students for job opportunities and prosperity.
    Four good reasons to support the nickel tax are:
    1. It is earmarked only for facility improvement.
    2. It is matched dollar for dollar through the state government.
    3. It replaces the 4 percent tax increase allowed by law, thus reducing the net financial burden of the county’s taxpayers.

  • Double your investment
  • Higdon endorses James Comer for US Congress

    One of the first representatives I got to know when I was sworn in as a state representative in 2003 was Representative Jamie Comer. Jamie was the youngest member of the General Assembly and had established himself as a leader in the House of Representatives. I have been very thankful over the years that Jamie helped me in those early years of my newly elected position.

  • One last visit

    Memories of my past flash in front of my eyes every few seconds as I walk around my old house in Marion, Kentucky. The country home is surrounded by fields and woods where I spent most of my youth. So little has changed, yet everything is different.
    As groups of people carry out couches, tables and boxes, I can’t help but remember the day that groups of people (some of them the same individuals) were carrying those items into the house. That was 16 years ago, almost to the date.
    Everything is the same, yet everything is different.
