  • LETTER: Chooses Turner

     Chooses Turner

    I am one of a few people who offer a unique perspective on the race for county judge/executive. I have worked as an employee for both Tommy Turner and Joe Pearman. For me, the choice is clear: Re-elect Tommy Turner.

  • Editorial: Beshear's financial mess

    Last week the Paducah Sun published a picture of Health and Family Services Secretary Audrey Haynes holding a sign aside a beaming Gov. Steve Beshear proclaiming that 413,410 people have enrolled in Kentucky's Obamacare program. We suspect the reason Beshear is joyous is because he knows it will fall to a future governor to deal with the financial mess he has created.

  • Just Ask: What's with the garbage?

     Golf course history explained
