  • You can’t deny that Porky always had kids at heart

    Last night, there was a get together in the parking lot of Challis Ford Ball Park, formerly known as Blue Lick Optimist.

    My guess is that a lot of people gathered around the tailgates of many trucks.

    My guess is that there were a lot of stories being told about the life and times of Challis D. Ford.

    Some could be printed. Others probably not.

    But my guess is that the memorial in the parking lot on Tuesday evening had participants of several generations.

     Just met with the Tourism Committee and discussions centered around Asian Carp and Black Bears and their effect on Kentucky.

  • Eadens never shy about his support for city, his causes

     HILLVIEW — Jim Eadens has been through a lot during his 16 years as mayor of the city of Hillview.

    He’s gone through a lot in the job and away from the office.

    But the guy is not phony. You know exactly what he is thinking.
