Adkins not afraid to face opponent
It’s like the old show my kids used to watch called “Where in the World is Carmen Santiago?” Where in the Commonwealth is Thomas Massie? Why won’t he debate or even appear on the same stage with his Democratic opponent Bill Adkins? He bailed out early on his job as Lewis County judge-executive to campaign. One would think he’d have plenty of time to prepare for debates and appearances, yet he’s declined invitations to every group that also offers a forum to his opponent.
Bill Adkins, on the other hand, has attended every fair, every town hall meeting, virtually every event he has been invited to.
Apparently he’s not afraid to express his opinions or face his opponent. Massie, on the other hand, either fears he has nothing to say, or assumes he will win simply because he is a Republican. Let’s prove him wrong. Vote for Bill Adkins.

Hamburger wagon helps community
The Greenup Lions Club has been serving its community for decades with only one goal: Meeting the needs of the people and organizations in that community.
We appreciate everyone who stopped by our hamburger wagon to purchase a burger, whether it was at one of the horse shows, the fair, South Shore’s Quilt Festival or Greenup’s Old Fashion Days. We take pride in following the tradition of those Lions who have gone before us in offering a tasty product at a fair price.
The funds we raise with our hamburger wagon are used to meet many needs. For some, it's a badly-needed eye exam and glasses. For others, it's a scholarship to be used toward a college education. We support Greenup County schools by donating to a variety of programs there and we also help with disasters and other needs presented to our club.
We are also pleased that when Meals on Wheels found themselves suddenly in need of a new place, we were able to help. Their mission of making sure shut-ins receive meals goes hand in hand with the work we embrace.
Among this year’s projects is forming an area Leo club for youths aged 12 to 18. We encourage students in that age group from any school, but particularly the Greenup County Schools territory, to attend the next Leo meeting at noon on Saturday, Nov. 10, to discover how they too can help their community a great place to live.
We also encourage everyone to come to our Family Fun Day from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 20, with contests offering cash prizes, a chance to win a bicycle, free food and other activities. The fun will take place in downtown Greenup.
Again, thanks to everyone who has contributed to helping us help others.
Josh Spears, president, Greenup Lions Club, Greenup
