    Severance Tax
    If a severance tax on natural gas drilling is passed in the state legislature this session, there's a chance it will come from a Republican.

    Kiddie Danger
    The cold winter weather keeps kids inside, where they often see the home as a giant playground. Bookcases, tables and even televisions all become an indoor jungle gym when the kids are stuck inside, but it takes little effort to topple over a TV. The most important thing you can do is to make sure your TV is secure... older, heavier TVs should be placed on low, stable furniture and if you have a flat-screen TV it should be secured to the wall. And remove any tempting objects such as remotes and toys from the TV area.

     

    Ashland Area Fire

For the time being... that man is staying with family members.
