• CPC urges conservative votes

    Dear Editor,
     We’d like to encourage everyone to get to know the candidates on the ballot before they go to the polls this election. There are many races on the ballot and sometimes gathering enough information on the candidates in order to make an informed vote can be overwhelming. That’s why the Commonwealth Policy Center and Commonwealth Policy PAC have teamed up to produce a voter guide for every state House, Senate and U.S. Congressional race. You can find the voter guides at www.commonwealthpolicycenter.org

  • Save the planet: eat plants

    Dear Editor,

    Right on the heels of utter devastation wrought by Hurricanes Florence and Michael comes an alarming report in the prestigious journal “Nature” that mitigation of global climate change will require a massive switch to plant-based eating.

  • More years with Moore

    Dear Editor:

    I have had the honor and privilege of knowing state Rep. Tim Moore for several years, but not to the extent I have gotten to know him over the past two years as a fellow legislator. What I have observed during this period is a dedicated and committed public servant who works tirelessly on behalf his constituents.

  • Religious bias in coverage?

    To the Editor:

    During the past year I have seen five KET programs favorable to Roman Catholics, who make up 15 percent of Kentucky’s population, but none favorable to Baptists -- who make up 25 percent of Kentucky’s population -- and none favorable to our Pentecostal brethren.

    These are from the latest figures I could find.

    Where is the balance? Is it discrimination?

  • Endorsing Lovell for state representative

    To the Editor:

    I’m endorsing Donielle Lovell for Kentucky’s 18th district. Kentucky is at a crossroads and could either prosper or succumb to its obstacles. We must elect a knowledgeable, honest, hardworking candidate.
    The greatest issues plaguing Kentucky are tax/pension systems, drug epidemic, poverty and lack of job stability. Donielle has a plan to reform our tax system by reducing unnecessary spending. Her plan benefits Kentuckians without altering pensions.

  • 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.
    Tim Cockrill

  • 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.
