  • Jessie takes Lady Cards' hoop reins

    Jenny Jessie is sliding over one seat, but it's a seat she's quite familiar with.

    "I am very excited and honored to have this opportunity," Jessie said. "I think Taylor County basketball is a program that can be built into a force across the region.

    "We have a great deal of young talent that has lots of varsity experience."

  • It's time to perform your civic duty

    Tomorrow is Kentucky's Primary Election. And it's up to us to see that those who we believe will do the best job get the most votes.

    Of course, without many local races, officials don't expect a large turnout. However, County Clerk Mark Carney said he believes we'll have a better turnout locally than the state as a whole.
