  • Crime report shows Kentucky remains one of the safest states in the nation

    For decades now, Kentucky State Police has annually compiled a comprehensive look at crime across the commonwealth, giving the public and law enforcement alike a much clearer picture of the challenges we face.

    The reports come out each summer and pull together data from local and state agencies, highlighting both short- and long-term trends.  

  • Why did the turtle cross the road?

    I was in a hurry to get somewhere, as usual. I was waiting rather impatiently for the light to change so I could get on my way. Little did I know I would witness the happy ending of a life and death situation.

    I was sitting in the coveted pole position at the light of a four-way intersection. From my vantage point, I could see that when the turning traffic cleared the next light, I would have smooth sailing to my destination.

  • Four for freedom

    Washington, D.C. has the bad news blues.  Whether it’s Congress passing bills that spend billions of dollars we don’t have, rogue Supreme Court justices ignoring the clear text of the Constitution, or yet another unelected executive branch agency bureaucrat issuing a “regulation” that punishes free enterprise, it often seems that victories for freedom and liberty are rare.

  • Confederates' flag may return to the attic

    The decision made by South Carolina to lower the flag from their capitol grounds and display it in a museum instead roiled my former home with a related controversy.

  • Tingle thanks community

She will be competing for Humanitarian, A.L.I.C.E. community service award, Runway Fashion Model, National TV Talent, National Festival Wear, National Spokesmodel, as well as formal wear, photogenic and cover model. 

  • Watchman party goals

    It’s time to fight back against liberalism, moderate progressive Democrats and Republicans who are being deceived and blinded by Satan. Also, the Republican establishment is starting to be deceived and blinded by Satan.

    Now, not all Republicans are deceived and blinded, and as far as Democrats nationally, they are deceived. I’m talking about those who do state work — governor, congress, judicial, etc. I hadn’t seen local Democrats being deceived yet.

  • Radio station memories

    I found your article on WSTL very interesting and thought you might want another part of the history of the station when it was brought back to life in 1966 by Woody and Helen. 

    They were two dedicated people who loved broadcasting especially, to the local fans in their community of Eminence. I miss both of them dearly. Woody gave me my first break into the business. I am forever grateful to both of them.
