Some thoughts on the quest for 6

Before I write anything else, I want to wish the Corbin High School football team the best of luck Friday night in their quest to win a sixth state championship. They will be taking on Central High School (Louisville) at 7:00 p.m. The game will be played at Kroger Field in...

McBurney has been a true servant for Corbin

I think one of the most significant things about next Tuesday’s General Election, at least for those of us who live in Corbin, will be who’s NOT on the ballot for the first time in over a decade. When the votes are counted, the clock will begin counting down on the final days in...
