  • Magical, mysterious traffic jams

    Have you ever been stuck in traffic? I don’t mean that you were forced to go 55 in a 65. I’m talking about being really stuck. I mean, the car is parked, locked and you’re out on the side of the interstate cursing your luck and calling your boss to beg his understanding.

    Campbellsburg Day a success

    The City of Campbellsburg would like to thank everyone who came out to Campbellsburg Day on Saturday June, 21st. Even though it was hot, we had a wonderful day.

    Our parade was phenomenal and we cannot begin to thank each and every one of you who were part of our parade. You know who you are and without you our parade would not have been successful, so thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

  • The mess in the middle east

    Mark Fassio

    Guest Columnist

    A few weeks ago the Local published a piece I wrote about the Russian power-grab of Crimea and its fomenting of unrest in Ukraine. With all the attention now ongoing in Iraq and Syria, I thought I’d try to explain what’s going on, and why. (My first region of study in the military was the MidEast, and I deployed there twice my career. This is déjà vu all over again.)

    McConnell at center of dysfunction

    It isn’t a surprise that Jon Park would take to the pages of this paper to distort and mislead residents of Henry County on Alison Lundergan Grimes’ candidacy for U.S. Senate. After all, Park’s candidate – Senator Mitch McConnell – has no record to run on at all.

    But let’s take a look at the unsubstantiated arguments made and the very important issues conveniently ignored.

    Being thankful is not always an easy thing to do.

  • Grimes’ comments on coal stance murky

    By Jon Park

     

    A few weeks ago, a commercial began running with a mother thanking Alison Lundergan Grimes for a bill she pushed through the state house to help our military personnel vote.

    Sounds good right?

    Problem is, the bill Alison is touting as a crowning achievement of her work as Secretary of State, the Military Heroes Voting Initiative, is not what she had originally sought.  

    State Senator Damon Thayer, the Majority Floor Leader recently said, “We had to do major surgery to that bill.”  

  • Boot brigade: firefighters outdo themselves

    Ask any charitable organization and they’ll tell you the most precious commodity to come by these days is time. Folks are much more likely to write a check or put together a bag of clothes to donate than allot any of their time to a particular cause.

    But the men and women of our county’s volunteer fire departments are different.

  • Louisville making friends with pro sports?

    I hope that our sports editor, Greg Woods, will forgive me. I’m about to step into his turf.
