  • For Sale: One Election Date

    by Cody McDowell 

     

    For the low, low price of $10,000 you too can influence an election. Not by running ads or placing signs in your Aunt’s front yard but by shaping the potential number of people who will vote in the election. 

  • People haven’t changed

    For my daily Bible reading, I have been reading the book of Acts for the past couple of weeks.

We also modernized Kentucky’s outdated, uncompetitive tax code for the first time in years, broadening the base while lowering the income tax for all working Kentuckians to 5 percent.

  • We are LaRue, and LaRue is unique

    David Raleigh was selected as the new LaRue County Schools superintendent last week.

    Raleigh was announced as the superintendent in front of a large, LARGE crowd at the central office on Thursday, March 29, 2018. I was amazed at how well the event went and how many people came. There were representatives from two newspapers and two radio station covering the event. Video players were recording, the whole meeting was being streamed live by several different outlets, cameras could be heard taking pictures throughout the event and on and on….
