    Endorsing Charlie Williams

    There are several candidates that have filed for the upcoming election. When it comes to who will be our Sheriff for the next four years there is only one choice. That choice is Charlie Williams.

    Kentucky’s dental downsides revealed

    Kentucky is ranked No. 2 nationally for something - and it’s not on the basketball court. The Bluegrass State trails only West Virginia in terms of the number of people affected by tooth decay.
