  • Farming: A Furnish family event

    Farming, for David Furnish, has always been a family event.

    His farming days began when he was a young boy, under the direction of his father and alongside his six brothers and one sister.

    “That’s why our family’s so close,” Furnish said. “If we didn’t do it (farm) together, there’s no way any of us could do it...”

  • Six defendants change pleas in drug-related cases

    Six individuals who previously entered not guilty pleas to drug charges issued by a January grand jury, changed their pleas on Thursday.

    They were arrested on charges related to Operation Flamingo  Road, which was the largest drug sweep in Kentucky history. Well over 500 warrants were issued state wide.

    The suspects were alleged to have been traveling to south Florida to pain clinics to get prescription drugs and then sell them illegally.

  • Tobacco farmers feeling affects of contract cuts

    It’s time for Ricci Roland to sell his tobacco.

    For years Roland has sold his entire tobacco crop to Universal Leaf  Tobacco Company at Double M Dixie, the local receiving station on White Oak Pike.

    But this year, Universal Leaf isn’t buying Roland’s entire tobacco crop.

    This year, they’re only buying a third.

    And Roland says he isn’t the only farmer that’s been affected by this year’s decreased tobacco sales.
