  • Empower the people to create jobs

    April 15 marked Tax Day, a painful reminder of just how much money the government takes from our paychecks every year. As Kentuckians filed their taxes, sending their hard-earned dollars to the federal treasury, many question what Congress is doing with their money.

    Over the last two years, Congress has given Americans a series of bailouts, a failed stimulus package and a government takeover of healthcare, costing roughly $1 trillion each.

    New Castle Christian Church’s new pastor Tommy Lanham is accustomed to living in a small town.

    He grew up in a little place called Keavy in Laurel County, but Lanham and his family most recently lived in Nicholasville.

    April 28 was a day I had circled, but I was wrong.
