Letter to the Editor from Margaret Bedford Pepin

Dear Editor:

It appears that Mr. Steve Reid has drunk the Koolaid, but in case it wasn’t fatal here are some further considerations.

Facing the fact that President Bush won the last election doesn’t mean that the 49% of voters who didn’t vote for him will stop searching for truth, or thinking or speaking or writing.

Contrary to Mr. Reid’s assertion, almost without exception the “liberals” stress their support for

Letter to the Editor from Gene Schweizer

Dear Editor:

Both Gallatin and Pattonsburg had financial statements in last week’s paper. Pattonsburg had a meaningful statement showing the balance on deposit at the beginning and end of the period for each fund, along with the income and expenses. This is as it should be.

In contrast, Gallatin just has a summary of revenue and expenses along with the beginning and ending cash balance. There is no full and

The Coonridge Digest: Big juicy garden ripe tomatoes…

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from the Ridge.

For nearly 30 years I was ignorant. I thought all tomatoes tasted like that.

We had always raised our own tomatoes and I was just naive enough to think the whole world ate the Beefsteak tomato. I’m talking about the big, juicy Midwest monster that lops over the edge of even a massive burger, whose wedges form the center of a summer

Post Scripts: Adding up the cost of war

by Joe Snyder

I knew America was spending lots of money to pay (in deficit) for the war in Iraq, but I had no idea of the total cost, since Sept. 11, 2001, has pushed the total cost of this war to near that of the Korean conflict. Despite our huge federal deficit, Congress hasn’t even blinked at the cost which, to some of us at least, ought to be

Family Daze: Wanna feel good? Join the parents at the park

by Debbie Farmer

One of the things you probably didn’t realize about having kids is how your social life changes. You not only stop hanging out in places like department stores or nice restaurants or, in fact, in any place where people without kids might be, you have a whole new social circle. One that’s mostly made up by a group of people you have absolutely nothing in common with.

Reverse mortgages help seniors reverse financial ills

Capital Eye by Randi Bjornstad

Capital Eye by Randi Bjornstad

For years, we’ve been hearing horror stories about elderly people choosing between buying groceries or prescriptions, sending in house payments or utility bills and having to leave their longtime homes because they can’t afford to pay steadily rising property taxes.

The prospect of these kinds of dilemmas is getting worse, not better, as medical premiums continue to go up, skyrocketing

Weenies – the filet mignon of our lean years

by Denny Banister

by Denny Banister

In spite of all the jokes we Americans make about them, we love our hot dogs. Whether we call them red hots, weenies or wieners, frankfurters or franks, tube steaks or just plain hot dogs, Americans eat 20 billion of them each year.

Most of the jokes about hot dogs center around the ingredients used to make them. We have all heard the horror

Graves supports Patriot Act

U.S. Congressman Sam Graves

U.S. Congressman Sam Graves recently voted to reauthorize the USA PATRIOT and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2005. Since its passage following the Sept. 11 attacks, the PATRIOT Act has played a key role in protecting innocent Americans from terrorists. Graves said the PATRIOT Act has been partly responsible for our safety.

“We need to give law enforcement all the tools they need to fight terrorists,” said

Violence Against Women Act

U.S. Congressman Sam Graves

In 1994, Congress revolutionized the way our society addresses domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking. The Violence Against Women Act dramatically improved how law enforcement responds to cases where women have been abused and provided more resources for those victims. Six years later the law was reauthorized and services were added for rural and older women.

When Congress comes back from recess in September, our first
