    Thought for the week: One needs different people in their life....a harbor in which to seek shelter against the storm, or simply to pay a visit because it is such a beautiful day. 

    Another county fair has come and gone. I entered 8 items this year, won five blue 1st place ribbons and three 2nd place ribbons. I attended the fair on Senior Day last Wednesday and I had a good time. Don’t forget to come out and support Relay for Life on Saturday, June 16. 

    Congratulations to Mattie Puyear on being chosen Mother of the Year.

  • Tobacco Settlement Funds good for county

    The state budget passed by the General Assembly provides significant support for the farm community, specifically for agricultural development in our rural areas.

    Building up Kentucky’s rural economy is critically important, especially at a time when many of our young people are migrating to urban areas for economic opportunity. We need to make strong investments in local agriculture in order to promote rural economic opportunity.
