This year, we’ve decided to make it thrice.
I’m happy to run into people in town who have become accustomed to the weeks we send The Cadiz Record to every mailing address in Trigg County. Up until this year, those dates have been the last edition of July and the edition before Thanksgiving.
With this being a crucial election year, we thought it would be a good idea to add a third mass distribution to the schedule, and that’s what you hold in your hands now.
(Unless you’re reading this online, in which case ... thanks!)
There will be four contested races on the Trigg County Primary Election ballot next month – county clerk, jailer, property valuation administrator and sheriff. With that in mind, you’ll find several politically-themed items in this week’s issue.
– Several candidates have scheduled advertisements with us throughout the leadup to the Primary, but this issue has the most of those ads we’ve had so far. Be sure to read what those candidates have to say about their campaigns.
– We continue to strive to make sure any local candidate who schedules a meet-and-greet or other event is represented within these pages each week. We have another this week, and we hope other candidates will communicate with us on theirs.
– Trigg County’s Democrat and Republican women’s clubs each held events in the last week and were kind enough to send photos.
– There’s an ad in the D section with information on this week’s candidate forum, which we’re happy to team with WKDZ for again.
All of that is in addition to several other items we hope you’ll notice.
– One page over, you’ll see a story on Pass It On, the local project that began last year as an opportunity for volunteers to help beautify Lake Barkley State Resort Park. This year, the project expands to include the Seven Friends Memorial at Knight & Hale and the Cadiz Housing Authority playgrounds.
– You’ve probably already noticed our recap of the Cadiz Rotary Club’s annual radio auction, which set a record this year for funds raised to assist Trigg County students and senior citizens.
– Speaking of students, several from Trigg County High School will compete for a state championship in bass fishing this weekend, and they’ll do it just a stone’s throw from here, taking off from Kentucky Dam Marina in Gilbertsville. Check out the sports section for a preview on that.
And that’s not all. Advertisers do a great job of supporting our mass distribution issues, which helps us increase our page count. That means there’s more in the paper this week, but what you see is what you’ll see EVERY week in the Record. Be sure to check out our subscription special in the D section – don’t miss another issue!
