I would like to talk with the seniors that read this newspaper. I suppose you know by now that two years of our Social Security cost of living raise was taken from us by our president without a good reason. So it is time to do something about it. If he gets reelected he will take it again come January 2013, for nobody challenged him that we worked 30 to 40 years to receive Social Security benefits. He had no right to do that. It just might be against the Constitution for him to steal our money when he is spending money like it grows on those trees in Washington, DC.

Remember civil rights march
Wednesday, March 5, 2014 marks the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s March on Frankfort. The Kentucky Commission on Human Rights and other members of the Allied Organizations for Civil Rights are sponsoring this event.
Support KET during March Telefund
I am a volunteer at KET, Kentucky’s statewide public television system. I volunteer my time there because for years my family and I have enjoyed the diverse, wonderful programming and services KET provides, and I want to take part in passing those things on to others in my community.
Thanks to county workers
My family and I would like to thank the Rowan County Road Department and magistrate Harry Clark for the fine job they did this cold, snowy winter of keeping our road clear.
Thanks for supporting FCA fundraiser
I wanted to express my deep appreciation for everyone in the community who helped with the Farmers Christian Academy soup bean dinner and auction. It was an overwhelming success thanks to everyone’s help.
Legion did outstanding honor
I want to take a few moments to thank the American Legion Post 126 and especially the Honor Guard they provided for my father/father-in-law John Burns' funeral on Jan. 25.
Dr. King would call abortion unjust
Next Monday, Jan. 20, we pause to reflect upon the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr. King was a man who fought tirelessly to the day of his death to right the wrongs of our racially segregated society and raise the banner of justice in a just and moral cause.
Salvation Army says thank you
The Rowan County Salvation Army was humbled again this year with the annual outpouring of support for our bell ringing campaign.
Straight talk about health care reform
Let’s do some straight talking about the current situation in health care reform and cut thru the misleading rhetoric on all sides. Two elementary problems exist. The first difficulty is that a sizable portion of us have no health insurance. Most estimates of that number are in the range of 50 million.
A realization of good will
I recently had the pleasure of spending a Saturday afternoon ringing the bell for the Salvation Army. Being raised by great parents who made it clear that doing volunteer work was good for me and my community, I learned early how to give to others who don't have enough.
Many remembered reason for the season
It was Christmas Day as I was traveling to join my children for a Christmas meal. Words cannot express the joy and peace I felt as I went by homes where families were gathered celebrating Jesus’ birth.
