  • Kay's Branch News, Jan. 21: The good, the bad and the vacation

    There’s been a lot going on this week, some good and some not so good. We’ll start with the bad news.
    Teri came to do laundry on Wednesday. I was in the sun room and she was on the other end of the house in the back hall where the laundry is. She kept telling me she smelled smoke. John came in a little while after she got here and he was also complaining of smelling smoke. Of course, I haven’t smelled anything since I turned 75, so I hadn’t paid any attention to it, but they were right. One could see smoke hanging in the air in the living room.

  • Community news vital to paper

    Publisher and journalist Henry Luce once said, “I became a journalist to come as close as possible to the heart of the world.”
    I’ve found the same to be true about myself, except my world is contained to a rural county in northern Kentucky with a little over 10,000 residents.
    The past three months have been a learning experience for me. There have been a few tears here and there, but luckily I’ve had our readers by my side to help guide and encourage me.
