  • Opinion: A Kentucky tragedy that shouldn’t be forgotten

    By John Shindlebower

    Monday marked the 30th anniversary of a day that Kentuckians should never forget. On that day in 1988, we began to hear the news of a horrific bus crash in Carrollton, Kentucky that claimed the lives of 27 people, mostly teenagers, and left dozens others horribly burned and injured.

    It remains the deadliest drunk-driving accident in U.S. history, and if you travel I-71, there are road signs marking the spot just south of Carrollton.

  • Editorial: Drake deserving of distinguished alumni recognition

    Kennet Drake, the recipient of the T. Gerald Florence Outstanding Alumni Award for 2018, was an apt pick.

    The retired teacher and principal is a Nelson County native and spent his entire career in education serving his home county. The award is named in honor of T.G. Florence, who served as the first principal at Nelson County High School.

  • Editorial: Do your research and vote Tuesday

    When most of us talk about Election Day, we’re referencing the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November. But primary elections are just as important. Primary elections are our chance to pick the players for those November elections.

    Tuesday, May 22, from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., you can vote to decide who will represent you in November elections for state representative, magistrate in two districts, jailer, sheriff, county clerk and county judge-executive.

    We got through the Derby and Mother’s Day and spent a few good weeks getting the flower beds cleaned out, and the grass has had a few mowings. And yes, we’ve probably even turned on the air conditioning. May is a busy month here in Kentucky.
