• Letter to the Editor

    To the Editor:
    “The groundhog lied,” said a cashier at Valero in Caneyville.
    Famous forecaster Punxsutawney Phil has only been right 39 percent of the time in the past 100 years. Not bad for a varmint, but you’d be better off going with the Farmers’ Almanac.
    Whatever. As the locals are fond of saying, “Any day above ground is a good day.”
    Amen, and pass the biscuits and gravy.

  • Climate change in the news again

    Dear editor,

    Last Sunday, hundreds of thousands marched throughout the world demanding action on climate change. 120 world leaders gathered in New York for the United Nations Summit on Climate Change. What can we do?

    A 2006 U.N. report estimated that meat production accounts for 18 percent of man-made greenhouse gases. A 2009 article in the respected World Watch magazine suggested that the contribution may be closer to 50 percent.

  • Mayor’s 2014-2015 Fiscal Year Budget Message

    Dear Council Members:

  • A year to work with the Chamber

    It is an exciting time to be in business in Leitchfield-Grayson County. Grayson County is moving and the future for 2014 is bright.

    The Chamber is continuing to evolve and adapt to the changing needs of the business community as it grows. The Chamber Board and staff remain focused on critical issues for our county and is expanding into developing areas.

  • Alliance kicks off campaign

    As you may know, the federal government is undergoing many changes--some of which directly affect the people in this county.  Programs are being cut nationwide, and Grayson County is no exception.  Therefore, the needs are growing!  Right here, in your hometown, people are struggling to have enough food each day.

  • Car show at St. Paul was tremendous

    All I can say is WOW! St. Paul School’s 9th annual car show had more entries this year than ever before. A special thanks to all the sponsors of the trophies, without you, the car show would not have been such a success. Also, to all the parents and businesses who donated items for door prizes and the silent auction, we appreciate you. To all entered their vehicles or lawnmowers in the show, your support was overwhelming, thank you! 

  • Love and peace shown with butterflies

    It’s amazing to me how two beautiful butterflies and two precious doves can bring so much peace and comfort to a sad and broken heart. God has very unique and divine ways of comforting and showing his love to his children during sad times and happy times.
    On Sept. 11, 2013, my mother, Dolus Hayes was laid to rest beside my dad, Floyd Hayes. They had been married 61 years when my dad died. He was devoted to mom. They would sit in the nursing home holding hands, showing their love and devotion to each other, which touched many hearts and lives.

  • Safe Spot is back

    Safe Spot is back
    It’s time to plan for the Annual “Halloween Safe Spot”, trick-or-treat at the fairgrounds.  First, to all of you who have participated in the past I want to express my deep gratitude for your help and support year after year in this effort to provide a safe, drug and alcohol free place for our children to trick-or-treat.  I know all of you who have come out to work the event can attest that we have a great time with Grayson County kids.  

  • Preservation of school history is important

    Having graduated from Clarkson High School in 1946, the youngest in a class of 16, I was so happy to read about the new city hall offices and community center proposed by Mayor Bonnie Henderson.
