On behalf of Scottsburg Volunteer Fire Department, we would like to thank the community for coming out to the Scottsburg Volunteer Fire Department Cruz-In on Saturday, Aug. 3.
President Donald Trump continues to disappoint me and most of the people in the USA. He continues to spread hate and racism. He has no respect for anyone who does not agree with him.
I see President Trump got his wish for the border wall between the United States and Mexico. The Supreme Court ruled in his favor 5 to 4. I feel good about this. Finally, a border wall will be built.
The Alton Hunt Club held a benefit on Saturday, July 20, at the Cluster Springs Ruritan Club for one of its members who has cancer. Dillon Shotwell, who was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma a few months ago, is only 27 years old and is currently undergoing chemo treatments here in South Boston.
The United States is suffering from moral and political paralysis. The leaders are fighting each other. They are bogged down with complex domestic problems and cannot get anything done because they cannot agree on a solution. Partisanship has created a do-nothing legislature. The U.S. is facing large, complex problems so expensive that no one can offer a good solution.

Just a few days ago, I looked at your front page and read, “Process to build school outlined.” Without even a token attempt to convince us that we need a new building in the first place, our self-appointed betters are charging off to do what they want, because they want to and because they think that they can get away with it.
On behalf of the members of the Faulkner Memorial Lodge No. 91, South Boston, we would like to offer our sincere thanks to all those who helped make the recent blood drive in honor of Libby Redd a successful event.
The current Democrat-led Congress is a study in deliberate distraction and inaction. Of course, the previous Republican-led Congress was almost as bad.
On June 11, Republicans in the 15th Senate District will be voting for a Republican candidate for the State Senate. As Republican committee chairmen representing the 11 localities within the 15th Senate District, we want to explain why we all endorse Senator Frank Ruff for the Republican nomination over his challenger.
What does it take to become a good leader? First, you must have a strong faith and believe you have the ability to lead. It takes a lot of patience, compromising and hard work. No matter how hard you try, there will always be those who will oppose everything you do.
During and after session, I have been asked by many “After the governor, lt. governor and attorney general all got into trouble for what they said and did, why didn’t anything happen to them? Considering that their own party leaders from around the country were calling for them to resign, you should have forced them out of office.”
