  • Domestic violence, sex crimes, bullying addressed by forums

    As a matter of public policy, domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking and bullying were seldom discussed for much of our country’s history, much less adequately addressed. 
    Thankfully, that era is largely behind us. Today, society is much more aware of these acts of aggression and how to stop them, and as a result, we’re seeing a greater number of victims get the care they deserve.
    In many ways, Kentucky has been a leader among the states in this regard, and 2015 is poised to be remembered as a high-water mark in this journey.

  • Time to ‘FALL BACK’

    Local residents will have an extra hour to sleep before attending church services this Sunday. Daylight savings time officially ends for the year at 2:00 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 1. The annual “fall back” clock adjustment will serve to make sunrise and sunset an hour earlier, yielding more light in the morning when you wake up. The time change also serves notice that winter is on the way. Be sure to set all of your clocks back one hour before retiring for the night Saturday evening.

    The City of Bedford could be debt free in four to six years, according to accountant Jeffrey Woods of Raisor, Zapp & Woods of Carrollton.
    The annual audit showed improvement in most areas. The Waste Water (Sewer) Treatment Plant took the biggest loss due to the rain and windstorm in July when the main road was washed away. Also, the age of the plant and substations have played a big role in contributing to the deficit as they are beginning to need extensive repairs.
