  • C’Burg attorney: CVFD owes city $52k

    General Manager

    According to a legal opinion issued by Campbellsburg City Attorney Graham Whatley, the Campbellsburg Volunteer Fire Department owes the city $52,000.

  • Rivers are Kentucky’s oldest highways

    Kentucky’s oldest highway system – our 1,100 miles of navigable rivers – has been getting a closer look in recent months by the General Assembly.

    A year ago, a permanent legislative committee dedicated solely to waterways held its first meeting; and earlier this year, during the legislative session, my colleagues and I voted to create a new water transportation advisory board, to give us and others in state government a ready resource of information from those whose job is tied to that industry.

  • Willie Peyton back in charge of Henry golfers

    Replacing Steve Dent as the Henry County boys’ golf coach, Willie Peyton is back in charge of the same program he coached for four years in the 1990s.

    After a decade-long layoff, Peyton takes over the program from Dent, who retired from teaching in July and is ineligible to coach until mid-October.
