  • CCHS restrooms locked to prevent smoking

    It has come to my attention that Casey County High School has closed two of its three student restrooms. The reason given to the students was to stop students from smoking in them. As a result, it has become extremely difficult for students to be able to use the facilities. I have a daughter who attends CCHS. She has reported that lines to use the restroom are so long that either students must first go to their class and request permission to use the facilities (this permission is not always given), or choose to wait in line. This causes them to be reported as tardy.

  • School restrooms in the news these days

    These are crazy times that we’re living in, especially when it comes to restrooms in public schools.
    The Kentucky Senate passed a bill, now headed to the House of Representatives, that clarifies where transgender students may use the restroom in public schools.
    The Legislative Research Commission in Frankfort reported that Sen. C.B. Embry Jr., R-Morgantown, said the legislation would require public school students to use the restrooms of their biological sex or seek special accommodations. The legislation passed by a 27-9 vote after a lengthy floor debate.

  • Thanks for road work during winter storm

    I would like to thank our magistrate, Kenny Morgan, and his road crew for keeping our roads to where we could travel. I appreciate it very much.

  • Improved communication needed with officials

    Good, caring people of Casey County struggle with many problems relating to employment, health and closely related economic woes. Many privately express needs, complaints, ideas and contributions that should be part of the governmental discourse in Liberty and Casey County government.
    Today I tried to forward to an internet link addressing a comparative causal study of “Hardest Places To Live” in counties nationwide that included us. We are ranked in the bottom 5 percent of 3,135 counties in the U.S.

  • That’s what big sisters are for

    I was NOT going to do it. I had been out fighting the snow all day in the truck, trying to get to work and back home without sliding into a ditch and I just WAS NOT going to play in the snow.
    Well, when you have a big sister and she’s in town, you can say you’re NOT going to play in the snow. But when that big sister of yours throws a huge pile of snow in your face as you’re walking out your door – its game on.
    I stood in the doorway frozen. Literally, I was so cold.

  • Domestic violence is no Hollywood matter

    I was not at all surprised to read in the Louisville Courier Journal on Sunday that the just released film “Fifty Shades of Grey” is number one at the box office and the book upon which the film is based sits atop the best seller’s list for fiction.
    No, I haven’t seen the movie or read the book. I’ve read reviews about the movie and book and frankly, I don’t know why anyone would want to watch or read this trash.

  • Questions regarding county coroner’s office

    As to the coroner’s expensive tastes, why couldn’t he have purchased the office supplies in Liberty for a lot less than $878? Wouldn’t the golden $80 badge identify him as coroner without having to buy six expensive $35 shirts?
    I don’t recall Quincy in the big city having anything but his badge for identification. Shouldn’t the coroner be a part of the sheriff’s department and not connected to any funeral home?
