We are not a democrat – Thank the Lord – but we are a citizen of Barren Co. with the conditional right of free opinion and free speech – Thank the Lord. And we are not blind. We can see current events when they are jostling against us every day. Neither do we have to be kicked down stairs to take a hint. The present race for representative is a disgrace to the county. It is being run on false pretenses and under false colors. Both candidates for the legislature are pronounced state wide and bone dry. Both are reputed to drink – in moderation- and both pledged to support the driest of legislation.
