  • Christmas is the season to be jolly and a wiseacre

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - It is two days before Christmas and not a creature is stirring, not even the Sports Editor.

  • Hurry, hurry don't be late to file papers

    The deadline is approaching to those who wish to throw their hats into the political ring.

    The county clerk’s office will close at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 26. Unless you plan on participating in select non-partisan races, your opportunity to join the process will be over.

    So many people will gripe about government but will fail to do anything about it. Some won’t even go to vote on election.

    The best way to be part of the solution is to be part of the system. However, that is not always possible for a person to do that.
