    In 2014, which was the last non-presidential general election year, fewer than fifty percent of Kentucky’s registered voters turned out to cast their ballots, yet the outcome of elections affect us all. Therefore, taking advantage of your right to vote is important in maintaining the meaning of democracy set forth by our Founding Fathers and to assure each of us has a voice in our government at all levels.

    I am writing to endorse Joe Traylor for magistrate in the 7th district. Though the area out here seems to largely be plastered in brown “Joe Traylor” signs, it just seems best to remind folks that Joe is the good, talented individual that is needed in government. He runs a farm. He can speak for farmers. But in running a large farm he also has to be a talented businessman which will be an asset to the entire fiscal court. Please vote for Joe Traylor.

    Laura and I are both retired teachers. We are very proud of our son-in-law Greg Coulson. But much more than just a son-in-law Greg is a good man. He is highly intelligent, extremely hard-working, and would help anyone who needed him. His experience as a public defender has served to strengthen his resolve to help working people in the 78th House District of Kentucky. Greg’s common sense and analytical mind will serve him well when he must read and understand complex bills on which he must cast a vote in the best interest of his constituents. He cares.

    I know we’re weary of politics and wish there weren’t all those ads on TV we have to mute. However, these next elections (mid-term and major) are far too important to ignore.
    Our planet has been attacked by the present administration, women continue to struggle for a place at the table to make decisions concerning their own bodies, teachers and public service workers have been Shanghaied by our Legislature and on and on.

    Last month a very special little girl named Molly answered the need to “feed the hungry.”
    The staff of the food pantry were in awe of the amount of food and monetary donations that was collected.
    Thank you very, very much to all in our community who donated food or money. Also to Molly with the help of her family for caring for others.
    God bless you all!

  • Supports Barr in November

    To the editor:
    I am a retired Lieutenant Colonel from the US Army and most importantly, a combat veteran.
    Soon, the voters of Kentucky Sixth District must elect a member of Congress. The incumbent, Congressman Andy Barr is the obvious and best choice based on many factors.
    First is his superb legislative record and support of numerous programs that benefit all of the sixth district but also the district’s veterans. And second is his character and lifestyle.

  • Too many ads on TV

    Over saturation

    To the editor:
    Can we get rid of the political ads or at least put time limitations on them. If I see another Andy Barr or Amy McGraph commercial, I’m donna call Vladimir Putin myself and ask his Russians to mettle.
    Thank God for DVR’s. I would much rather watch reruns of Scooby-Doo. I approve this message.

    To the editor:
    Since our tax money is being used to the tune of millions of dollars to mutilate the intersection of US 62 and Salem Pike, I am wondering if someone could find a couple of hundred dollars, and a weed eater, to clan up the mess, east of Smalley Branch Road. The dozen times a week I turn either onto Smalley Branch Road, or out of Smalley Branch Road, I put my life on the line. This problem has been raised often in the 21 years I’ve lived here, to no avail.

    Thank you,
