  • God Bless America! and all her citizens

    A collective sigh of relief.
    The election is over.
    Campaign signs have been taken down. Thank-you candidates for that.
    Whether your favored candidate won or not, the election is over. Finished. Done.
    As a city, county, state and nation, we must move forward. There is much to be done by all of our public officials.
    In 1939, Irving Berlin first drafted these words:
    God Bless America,
    Land that I love.
    Stand beside her, and guide her
    Thru the night with a light from above.

  • KSP warns motorists of increased deer activity

    With the changing of fall leaves comes the migration of wildlife, particularly deer. The Kentucky State Police is urging all motorists to be aware of the increased dangers posed by deer wandering onto roadways this fall.
    “Drivers should be engaged, alert and on the lookout for deer this time of year. Deer mating season leads to higher roaming activity all across the Commonwealth, which leads to more car-deer crashes,” says KSP Lt. Michael Webb.
