I’ve travelled extensively across our state and can say with some authority that Woodford County is one of the best places to live in Kentucky, or anywhere for that matter. There is a community spirit here that is rare and special. As the Sun’s new managing editor, I pledge to show that spirit to the world. Historically speaking, Woodford County, Versailles and Midway are incredibly rich, and the Sun has been a part of it longer than some Kentucky towns have existed. Our first edition was published in 1869 – less than four years after the Civil War. That history is important to us, and we know we are duty-bound to uphold the nearly 150 year tradition of excellence and service that keeps us going when so many newspapers have closed their doors. All of us feel the weight of that responsibility to this community, and we are excited to move forward and find new ways to help Woodford County continue to grow and prosper. There are a variety of changes coming to make The Sun more valuable to you every day. We are working to be your prime source of information about anything Woodford, whether from today or long ago. The changes you’ll see are driven by four goals: Show the world that Woodford County is an excellent place to live and work; help promote economic growth that brings jobs and opportunity; be a sounding board for important community issues, and; constantly look for ways to be more useful in your life. While these goals aren’t exactly new for The Sun, it’s how we accomplish them that will change. While our reporters always search for important news, we will add more community voices on issues that matter to you, and change some things to make us more convenient. If we do our job right, you’ll look to us first for anything that happens in this great community of ours. In the meantime, let us hear from you. What would you like to see? How can we better serve you? Tell us please, and thank you for your continued support.
