  • Kentucky’s fourth Constitution stands test of time

    Kentucky officially broke away from Virginia in 1792 to become the 15th state to join the Union. The first order of business was to do what the country, itself, had done just several years earlier: Write a Constitution.
    It was in Danville, not Frankfort, where the state’s leaders gathered to write that first foundation of our state govern-ment. Kentucky replaced that document twice in the next 90 years. In 1891, the current and fourth Consititution was approved by voters.

  • Volunteering is 
a great way to show community you care

    So, from mid-August to the end of November, it was like living in Southern California – sunny and unseasonably warm weather, with so little rain we had a severe drought.
    Now, just barely into December, we’ve had our first major snowstorm of the winter on Saturday and plunging temperatures with wind-chill factors taking them into single digits – and possibly below zero by the time this issue goes to press.

  • Webb retires after 32 years carrying mail

    Snow, rain heat and the gloom of night are nothing compared to the hazards mail carriers face on the job these days.
    Bedford resident Bob Webb said he’s been bitten by dogs, attacked by a rooster and even shot at during the 32 years he carried mail for the Bedford Post Office. Webb retired from that job Friday, Dec. 3, amongst friends and co-workers who honored him with an open house at the post office.
    Oddly, it was the rooster that did the most damage. Lifting up his left pantleg, he showed several patches where the wounds have yet to heal.
