150 years of Gallatin history at D.H. Davis Drug Store

The town’s oldest business establishment can trace its way by horse and wagon to the dusty shadows of the county’s pioneer settlers who have long since faded away.

Wayne Culver is pictured behind the counter at the D.H. Davis Drug Store. Wayne says the store’s present employees are “Some of the finest people on the planet.” Those employees include his wife, Janel, Betty Peters, Lucille Bruce, Sonja Backer and Laurie

Letter to the Editor from Margaret Bedford Pepin

Dear Editor:

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.

When Congress comes back from recess in September, our first

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.

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