  • Comer makes hay over hemp

    Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner James Comer thinks letters of support will clarify the U.S. Department of Justice’s position and may give the green light to Kentucky’s hemp production.

    During the public hearing on tax rates Wednesday, Sept. 4, Mayor Drane Stephens asked council members if they had any thoughts or concerns about the proposed tax increase while the council waited for potential resident attendees. Council member Danny Meadows said he had received numerous calls from residents on fixed incomes and voiced his concerns.

  • Training for the golden hour

    First responders, EMTs and firemen all strive to get a crash victim to a trauma center in the golden hour.

    Armed with the Jaws of Life and a cutting tool, firefighters work swiftly and safely to remove victims from the mangled metal of a car frame, a collapsed roof or those pinned under a dashboard. Ensuring they receive medical care within an hour, where a victim’s chances of survival from a traumatic injury are most probable, requires the proper tools and training like an auto extraction class.

  • Henry County Historical Society hosts Simon Kenton

    Daniel Boone eclipses most historical figures in Kentucky’s pioneer narratives, but Mel Hankla’s portrayal of Simon Kenton may change that.

    Hankla, a Kentucky Chautauqua actor, will portray the pioneer who went, at the age of 16, under the name Simon Butler for 11 years thinking he had killed another man in a fight over a woman and fled Virginia. Kenton fled into parts of what was known to be Kentucky, Ohio and Virginia and hunted along the Ohio River.

  • Another conflict, another career stage

    A little over 23 years ago, the seeds were planted.

  • Corporations are the real Welfare queens

    It took us almost 20 years to find the Unabomber. FBI agent Mark Felt denied for 30 years that he was ‘Deep Throat,’ the source for Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein’s undercover investigation of Nixon and company, until he ‘fessed up in 2005. But today I am proud to announce that, after more than 35 years, we have found Ronald Reagan’s elusive ‘welfare queen.’
