Saturday had “pitch” perfect conditions for everyone at the dunking booth of the inaugural Granny Ruby's Daycare spring carnival, mother Charlotte Rambo said. Her daughter, 8-year-old Makayla, was one of the early targets at the booth; Makayla attends the day-care center. “Today is important because they are raising money to go to the University of Kentucky Children's Hospital, and this carnival was a really good way to do that,” Charlotte Rambo said. “The talent show has really been our favorite part of the day so far.” Rambo was out with several of her sons and daughter and said they were more than happy to volunteer while also enjoying the carnival.

I heard over the Frankfort grapevine that the General Assembly, or some of those fat-cat Democrats, want to pass a law of taxing restaurants in order for someone or other to have a better quality of life. Well, I sure do need some improvement for myself, like a better automobile or more expensive house or a new wardrobe. Will it improve the water quality we folks in Junction receive from Danville? Who will receive a better quality of life if the three-cent tax is made or passed into life?
