  • Every day should celebrate independence

     FRANKFORT – We are only a few days away from marking the 238th anniversary of our Declaration of Independence, when a young nation stood up against the oppression of the British Monarchy and sought to create a country ‘for the people, and by the people.’

    While July 4th is a time for us to reflect on the formation of the United States and the ups and downs of remaining the one true free nation in the world, we must sometimes wonder if the meaning of the day gets lost in cookouts and fireworks.

     This Coyle's Corner, originally published June 30, 2010, was a classic Coyle tongue-and-cheek look at politics in the media, focusing on an Independence Day visit by Rand Paul to Bullitt County.

     The Fox Chase Mayor’s resignation statement was not only unnecessary but untrue. The current council members are well respected, active members of the community.

  • Safe Fourth of July

     The 4th of July is fast approaching and long with it comes fireworks. Although they are an integral part of this wonderful celebration and everyone enjoys a good show, please keep in mind that a lot of people have jobs they have to get up early for, children that need rest and animals that re terrified by the sounds. Not everyone enjoys hearing or seeing them for days on end until the wee hours of the morning. Please keep this in mind and be respectful of your neighbors and others in your community. 

    Have a Happy & Safe 4th of July!
