  • Putting public record on the record

    From speeding tickets, misdemeanors and indictments to marriages, divorces and land transfers, the News-Journal publishes a myriad of public records.

    We honestly want to know what you think.

    That's why the Central Kentucky News-Journal is conducting a reader survey about public records. We would appreciate your opinion on the content of the News-Journal's On the Record page - what you read, what you don't read and what you think about it.

  • Our important obligation

    "Leadership is the capacity and will to rally men and women to a common purpose and the character which inspires confidence."

    - Bernard Montgomery

    While it may often be unfair, elected officials are held to a higher accountability than the average person. Their character, their pasts, their integrity - all are intensely scrutinized.

    Look, for example, at the current presidential campaign. If what's going on in newspapers and on television stations across the country isn't intense scrutiny we don't know what is.
