  • LETTER: A time for forgiveness

     I am a resident of Bowling Green, but lived in Hodgenville until age 25. I was married there and am a 1975 graduate of LaRue County High School.

    I would hope that everyone would consider the body of work and passion that Sam Sanders has for the school system.

    I do not excuse that he made a bad choice but everyone that has jumped on the “fire him" bandwagon has more than likely made many mistakes themselves – it’s just that Sam is in the public eye and they are not. That alone does not justify termination.

  • LETTER: School district has improved under Sam Sanders
  • LETTER: Girl Scouts collect cleaning products

     Girl Scouts collect cleaning products

    Girl Scout Troop 929 juniors are working on their bronze awards – the highest award they can achieve.

    The girls can make a difference and they are proud of what they can accomplish.

    They will be collecting personal hygiene and cleaning products – soaps, deodorant, toothbrushes, detergent and toilet paper – to help our community.  All donated products will be given to Hodgenville and Abraham Lincoln elementary schools.

  • Senator Gibson's Frankfort Update

    Senator Carroll Gibson’s Legislative Update

     

    The second week of April is the last week of the Governor’s 10-day veto period. The 14th and 15th, both chambers return to Frankfort and take up any final action on bills, including the budget bills, if there are disagreements with the Governor’s potential vetoes. During this period, it is quiet around the capitol. This week several members came to Frankfort to meet about pending legislation, and continue to discuss the Road Plan, which has not yet come to the floor for a vote.

  • Scars, suspicion follow chick war

     We hatched out a batch of chicks this spring.

    I had a feeling they would be rowdy birds as soon as they began hatching – the first one exploded out of the shell and immediately began screaming at the world. Six more chicks followed.

    We lost two under odd circumstances. After recent events, I’m pretty sure they were assassinated by their brothers and sisters.

    The remaining five seemed healthy enough. They were fluffy and cute and picture-perfect. But one day, I came home from work and found carnage inside the brooder.

  • JUST ASK: Why are the mayor and city clerk still on the job?

      Why are the mayor and city clerk still on the job?

    If they were employed by any other business or company they would have been fired months ago.

  • LETTER: What I learned in Frankfort

     What I learned in Frankfort

    On March 21, with a bipartisan 75-16 vote, House Bill 31 passed the House and was sent to the Senate. Senate Leadership refused to assign this bill to a committee or allow a vote on Sen. Higdon's related SB 14.

  • Judge's ruling on pipeline: Playing field leveled

     The decision out of Franklin Circuit Court that the Bluegrass Pipeline does not have the power of eminent domain shows that, at least in one branch of government, private citizens’ rights are still important.

    In his summary judgment against Bluegrass Pipeline, Franklin Circuit Judge Phillip J. Shepherd ruled March 25 that the pipeline was not “in public service,” and therefore not eligible to have the government seize private property against the will of landowners.
