    Many children need good, adoptive homes
    As this is National Adoption Month, I just felt the need to write this. When I was born in 1939, my mother became ill with TB and she died a year later.

    These statements were from elected officials that voted in favor of “A” truck stop.

    Brian Linder is ‘better’ candidate
    “We deserve better” has become the hue and cry at election time. But, how do we get “better”.

    Bredenberg is a
    man of integrity

    I’m writing to support my friend, Richard Bredenberg, running for re-election to the Grant County School Board. I’ve known him 40 years and can say he’s a man of integrity and will always have the children’s best interest at heart. He’s taught in the public school system 33 years and 10 years at NKU.

    I called the Central Kentucky Blood Center in Lexington to check on how much blood I have donated over the years. Their computers show a total of 86 units of blood.
