City of Berea

The City of Berea would like to make the public aware that over the next two weeks, uniformed city police and firemen will be visiting randomly selected homes to collect census data. The data will be used to determine if the city is eligible to receive federal grant funding for the proposed construction of expanded police and fire facilities. This expansion will allow the city to better serve the safety needs of our citizens. The grant funding for the project will reduce the financial burden for the city taxpayers, so your participation is appreciated.

Fighting for Kentucky Jobs

Mitch McConnell

Mitch McConnell

For years, the Obama administration and its overzealous bureaucratic regulators at the EPA have waged a war against Kentucky coal jobs, miners, and their families. And I’ve vowed to do all I can to stop them. I’m pleased to report that recently the Senate Appropriations Committee, on which I serve, took an important step towards using Congress’s power of the purse to rein in the agency on several fronts, efforts that should help those not only in the coal industry but also farmers and Kentucky job creators.

Earlier this year, I joined the subcommittee of the Appropriations Committee responsible for funding the EPA. I joined this subcommittee specifically to be

McConnell Welcomes the Supreme Court’s EPA Ruling

Mitch McConnell

Mitch McConnell

U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell issued the following statement today regarding the Supreme Court’s ruling on Michigan v. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA):

“Obama Administration officials like to pretend that the costs of their massive and regressive regulations either don’t exist or don’t matter. Middle-class families in Kentucky and across our country don’t have that luxury, and are often the first to suffer.

“Today’s Supreme Court decision represents a cutting rebuke to the administration’s callous attitude. While much of the damage of this regulation has already been done, the ruling serves as a critical reminder to every

Jadon Gibson

Jadon Gibson

Captain J. C. Mason was the captain of the Sultana, a side-wheel steamer that was heavy laden after a four-hour stop for repairs in Memphis on the evening of April 24, 1865.

The vessel made regular runs between St. Louis and New Orleans the preceding two years, mostly in the cotton trade, but Mason entered her in the lucrative market of transporting troops following the Civil War. The government paid $5 for each soldier, big money in those days. Some captains gave kick-backs of twenty percent or more to the army officers in

This July 4th we will celebrate the 239nd birthday of our great nation, when our forefathers unveiled the document that would help form the foundation of our United States, the Declaration of Independence.
