    As wives, husbands, girlfriends, boyfriends, sons, daughters, moms, dads and grandparents anxiously waited Saturday, about 200 soldiers were just as anxious, just minutes away from an emotional return to their loved ones.

    The 3rd Expeditionary Sustainment Command is back at Fort Knox following a nine-month deployment.

  • Blurry lines

    ISSUE: Legislative redistricting
    OUR VIEW: Politics clouds the process

    Kentucky’s Senate and House legislative districts need to be redrawn to reflect results of the 2010 Census. It’s only fair.

    OUR VIEW:
    Much work ahead for government
