    One Democrat responds to ‘Drivel and Tripe’

     

    Roy Smith’s Letter to the Editor in the Sept. 19 edition of The Sentinel-News [“What have Democrat’s done?”] displays an amazing amount of vitriol for someone so deeply enchanted by the current administration.

  • MY WORD/Suart Sanders, KHS History Advocate: Communities, historic sites, focus on diversity, inclusion

    Civil Rights activist Marcus Garvey once said, “A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.”

    In this day and age of self-sustaining lifestyles with a back-to-basics approach to life, chickens have become a favorable way for “city slickers” to institute some environmentally friendly living in their lives.

  • GUEST COLUMN: New system means changes to state’s school accountability measures

    Starting this month, you’ll begin hearing much more about our new school accountability system and what it means for each district, school and student.

    With the implementation of any new system, especially one as big as this, there are always growing pains and questions. I would like to take a few moments to discuss Kentucky’s new accountability system, what it will mean for schools and students this academic year, and help prepare you for this transition.
