  • Massie: Deal likely on debt ceiling

    Kentucky Congressman Thomas Massie believes a deal to raise the nation’s debt ceiling is on the horizon, despite a lingering government shutdown over funding.

    Speaking to local reporters today, Massie said House GOP leadership informed him yesterday that the debt ceiling debate would be over before next week’s deadline.

    “Based on my conversations with House leadership yesterday I believe a short-term debt increase will be passed in the House by Saturday without too many clauses,” he said.

    “Mommy, wake up! We’re back where we started!”

    Hubby and I, along with our two little ones, had fallen asleep on the train.  I glanced at my phone. It was nearly 1 a.m.  Then the announcement, “All passengers are requested to exit at this stop.”

  • South facing defending 5A runner-up Friday

    South Oldham has a chance to create a good position for itself in the Class 5A District 5 race Friday.

    The Dragons (4-3, 2-0 District 5) will head north to Cooper (2-5, 0-2), attempting to keep an unblemished district record alive.

    But in order to leave Union with a 3-0 district record, South will have to take down an opponent it’s struggled against.

    “We’ve never beat Cooper,” coach Jamie Reed said. “We’ll need a good week of practice from everyone because it’ll be a tough game.”
