  • Column: Terrorists belong in Guantanamo, not Bowling Green

    A few weeks ago, it would have been safe to say not a single foreign terrorist in the world could find Bowling Green, Kentucky, on a map. But after the ill-advised decision of the Obama Administration to try two foreign fighters in a civilian federal court in Bowling Green, they probably know where it is now.

    Over the past few weeks, a broad bipartisan coalition of concerned local, state, and federal leaders have expressed deep concerns with the prospect of trying these enemy combatants in Kentucky.

  • Thieves will have to answer for their deeds

    This letter is for all the people that have had flowers, vases and wreaths stolen from a loved one’s gravesite. It’s as if we haven’t had enough grief after losing someone that they add to the agony by taking these items. You will have to answer for these deeds on judgment day and hopefully you will think before you do this again!

  • Stop taking our flowers!

    To whoever is stealing flowers from the New Castle Cemetery: Many people like to keep flowers on the grave of family members. It is bad when you have to replace them two or three times a year because someone steals them. I know the wind blows them off sometimes, but other times people take them. I am sure everyone who has had flowers missing would appreciate it if you would stop.

  • A legacy of helping senior citizens

    One of the country’s biggest challenges over the next few decades is ensuring that the “golden years” truly live up to their name for our older citizens.

    As more Baby Boomers begin turning 65 – the first began celebrating that milestone birthday in January – this group of citizens promises to be a fastest-growing demographic for quite some time.

  • Joint effort nets capture of Shelbyville man

    What began as an attempt to serve a warrant turned into a manhunt that eventually resulted in the arrest of a Shelbyville man.

    On Tuesday, June 28, officers from Eminence Police Department, along with Shelbyville Police Department Detective Jessie Paulley, attempted to serve a warrant on Jordan Clark, 19, for absconding from a robbery charge in Shelbyville.

    EPD Chief Carey Duncan said Paulley contacted EPD to serve the warrant on Sunnyside Drive, which the detective believed was in the city limits.

  • GED grads celebrate with Berry

    “It’s a tough road, but don’t give up... you’ll get where you need to go.”

  • Honoring the humble hankie

    Until the 1920s, they were used for everything from wiping away tears and wiping runny noses, to being transformed into dolls, or used as a signal to a prospective suitor.

    But in 1924, the Kleenex was born, and the humble handkerchief’s prominence began to fade.

    Last week, collectors of handkerchiefs and buttons gathered at Twin Oaks Nursing Center in New Castle to share their collections, and stories about the once popular accessory.

  • GOP, Dems pick jailer candidates

    After months of searching and interviewing, the Henry County Republican and Democratic Executive Committees have made their choices.

    Doug Kemp will represent the GOP and Scott Southworth will represent the Democrats in November in an election for Henry County Jailer.

    The position was vacated earlier this year after Republican Ronnie Stephens resigned from the post.
