  • Safety in the landscape after recent storms

    Kentucky has been through it recently. From the shock and destruction of the recent ice and snowstorms to the out-of-season, spring-like storms that brought damaging winds to already vulnerable landscape trees, residents are reeling trying to figure out where to start the cleanup process.

  • Food is available to those in need

    To the editor:

    Last week you printed a letter concerning a lady not getting help when she needed it. This upset me, so I jumped in trying to locate this lady, which I did with the help of another person. I have talked with her, and we got everything straightened out. She was in the dark about where and whom she could turn to and the person who refused her help must have been in the dark also.

    The Food Pantry has no financial guidelines for getting food and the only time one is refused food is when it is being abused and never if children are involved.

  • Northside Elementary "Jumps Rope for Heart"

  • Speeding drivers kill family pets

    To the editor,

    I would just like to write and say I think it is awful how fast people drive on US 62 E. and how heartless people can be. On Sunday, Feb. 8 my 12 month old puppy had got out and was near the road. Someone hit him and didn’t even care enough to stop.

    He passed away. It was just like losing one of my children. He was our best friend. So I hope who ever did this to our family will please slow down. We miss our babe very much and this won’t bring him back but it may save another animals life. His name was Tank.
