Currently, Corbin is not completely beneficial to the common worker and individual. Corbin is a lower income town, with a small population and limited amount of jobs, production, and affordable housing. You can look around and see new fancy duplexes and mansions being built, but where are th…

Led by Tom Greer, the Corbin Redhound football team has managed a perfect 12-0 season. Since the beginning, Greer's Redhounds have strived for greatness, not only on the field, but in their faith as well. Two lives have been saved this season alone.

Everyone goes through high school, but does everyone go through high school with an opportunity to make some extra money? I am a part of the Corbin High Schools´ Co-op program. I get to leave school early and go to my job for more hours throughout the week.

Grocery store employees have one of the most disrespected jobs, but they actually should be one of the most praised. I think grocery store employees should be respected in the same light as other frontline workers in terms of helping people get through the pandemic.

Stop overtaxing our retirees for a failing school (indoctrination) system. Kentucky is 45th in the nation for education and our taxes continue to go up at the minimum rate of 4% each year. This is more than any employer or retirement program pay increases annually.

I would like to thank the couple that paid for our meal at Sonny's BBQ last Saturday evening, April 24. My wife and I and her mother were traveling back to Ohio from Florida and stopped to get a bite to eat. A fine young gentlemen and his wife got up and offered my wife and her aging mother …

The 72nd consecutive year of providing food baskets to local families during the Christmas season was unlike any other that the Corbin Lions Club has seen. Due to concerns related to COVID-19, the club mailed a $50 gift card to 254 individuals and families in the greater Corbin community ins…

Today I said to myself, I think I'll call Mom and talk to her for a while. Then I remembered, Jesus called yesterday and she is not there anymore. Take the time to call your mom. While you have time.

The Corbin Lions Club thanks the Corbin community for supporting our annual Christmas Basket Program throughout the years. Without your support, we would not have been able to help members of the Corbin community by providing food baskets for Christmas.

My vote is not for sale. Not for sale for money, whiskey, cigarettes or drugs. My vote is not for sale for the promise of socialized medicine or the promise of socialism. No Republican candidate has ever promised me anything but an opportunity to make a living on a level playing field. That …

As your state senator, I know that our communities face unique challenges. I have always enjoyed working with you to find ways to address our challenges – and am now encouraging you to respond to the 2020 Census to provide an accurate count of our population so that I can be a stronger voice…

Recently, Regina Petrey Bates Bunch Huff posted a picture of my office on her Facebook page depicting my political yard signs for Biden, Carolyn Willis and Matt Anderson. She stated "Let me be clear, if you support Biden, you couldn't possibly support me!!"

Regina Petrey Bates Bunch Huff in a June 4, 2020 news article stated she "is willing to give up her time and work diligently to ensure we have the best opportunities to offer your children...."

I've never had as much hope for this country as I do right now. When George Floyd was taking his last labored breaths under the knee of a callous, indifferent aggressor, a flame was ignited. People I've never seen taking up the cause of social justice before are affirming the inherent dignit…

While watching Governor Beshear's performance during his COVID-19 updates, I was convinced that he would have been the perfect person to play Mr. Rogers in a movie. Alas, that role went to Tom Hanks. But the governor was employing the Mary Poppins strategy, "a spoonful of sugar makes the med…

I just wanted to say how proud I am of our little town. We came together to support our local businesses during the COVID-19 crisis (still are) and we came together in spite of our reputation to honor the memory of George Floyd and to denounce police brutality of our fellow Americans. Being …

It is a great day to be a Corbin Redhound. On May 23rd our community came together in unity to support Corbin seniors as they paraded through town. It was amazing to watch so many students, eager with pride to present themselves to their families, the community, and the world; and the commun…

The United States Postal Service is committed to delivering your mail and packages throughout the current pandemic. We are proud of our role in providing an essential service to every community. The one constant throughout this crisis has been our commitment to fulfilling the vital mission o…

Health insurance companies in America make a staggering $100 billion yearly in profits. The Kentucky Department of Insurance should, in theory, provide a check and balance by keeping the insurance companies half way honest. When a citizen files a complaint with the Department, they do an imp…

My father was a combat medic in the Pacific during World War II. Most of his training was done with the 4th Armored Division before he was split off and assigned to the 706th Tank Battalion in the 77th Infantry Division. During his training, his best buddy was a man named Calvin Gregory from…

In the beginning man was blessed with eternal life. The human body was designed to rejuvenate itself over and over and never die of old age. The first of mankind lived for thousands of years, by my calculation, by the time Adam and Eve was created there were mankind on earth for three thousa…
