Alison Lundergan Grimes is a FRAUD. She is being funded by liberal anti-coal groups from Boston to Chicago and San Francisco. And she has the GALL to lie to the people of Prestonsburg that she supports coal. What a fraud. What a scandal. Those voting for her HATES coal mining. She attends fund raisers by Dirty Harry Reid (who says COAL makes us SICK), Michelle Obama and Gavin Newsome (LT GOV of California who calls coal 'fuel from hell').

Her crooked daddy went to jail for ethics issues. He also gave thousands of dollars to pervert NYC mayor Anthony Weiner.

Alison Lundergan Grimes complained about fat foods at the state fair in Louisville. She is pro-choice and endorsed by femenist group Emily's List. Can she trick you into making you think that she is different from the people backing her Senate candidacy? Her party has run the Senate since 2006 giving us a recession, Dodd-Frank, war on coal, unemployment, weak economic growth etc. SHE IS A SCAM. If you elect this empty dress, you will be electing crooked Jerry Lundergan of Lexington.

We don't need for Harry Reid and Obama to have another rubber stamper in the Senate!!NO to Alison Lundergan Grimes the liberal who has been endorsed by every socialist group out there.

Everyone has liberal and conservative views... this includes Alison, and, you my friend. You push the limits with what you spew about her views. You are wrong to a large degree - like coal, she's not against coal.

You "hummer" are a hate monger.

Go Alison.

That's not surprising. The Libtards can say anything they want about the Conservatives and it's okay. Let the other shoe drop and watch the Libs start crying. If all the posters on here think Stumbo is so great, tell me one thing he's done for this region! He's so disconnected from the people in this region he doesn't even live here, he lives in Lexington.

She is a true liberal. Why should anyone believe that's she for coal after hanging out with the anti-coal people in the early stages of planning her run? She is on board with the plan to totally eliminate mining in Appalachia by all means necessary, even if it takes lying and deceit to do it. Her daddy is a documented crook, her family supported the pervert liberal democrat weasel Anthony Weiner with big money and she would be nothing more than a yes vote for Obama.

Grimes is a liberal democrat and WILL vote the way the other democrats vote if she is elected.

As someone else stated, if a republican acted as Stumbo, they would have been attacked by every liberal in the state and it would be on CNN,MSNBC,ABC,CBS and ABC telling how out of bounds they were.

We just had the 50th anniversary on the war against poverty, a war that democrats started and we are as poor, if not poorer, than we were back then. This is really what the democrats want,the "keep them poor so they will vote for you" mentality has ruined and is ruining this state and nation.

While I understand that there are those that need help and are disabled and that is fine and I think it is good for that help to be there but there are those that use these situations (democrats) to keep people in these situations to get votes.

Questions are being raised at Allen Volunteer Fire Department after a number of invoices from one contractor showed up on the books.

A meeting of the the Allen Volunteer Fire Department tax board has been called for Monday, after 13 invoices from the last month totalling $175,267.94 were uncovered. The invoices, dated from Feb. 2 to March 16, are all tied to Lawson Contracting Inc., a corporation located in Garrett and owned by Darren Lawson.

In the invoices obtained by The Floyd County Times, Lawson Contracting billed Allen Volunteer Fire Department, and was paid for a number of services, including an invoice submitted March 16 that listed three items,“pour and finish new concrete on inside of building” for $12,000,“saw cut and remove asphalt slab under concrete in small building” for $3,000, and “additional equipment and labor cost” for $4,500, for a total of $19,500. There were additionally two more invoices submitted by Lawson Contracting on March 16 totalling another $30,800.

On March 21, three checks were written for the March 16 invoices by AVFD for a total of $50,300.

There are other notable billings among the invoices, including “saw cut and hammer concrete slab and haul to fill area” which cost AVFD $19,000. Another invoice marked Feb. 16 calls for $8,000 to be paid for the the installation of 150 feet of guardrail.

A Feb. 13 invoice lists “removing and replacing a water heater” at a cost of $3,000 and then another $2,500 to “re-wire and re-plumb the water heater,”“replacing bulbs and ballast” at a cost of $1,500, and another $150 to “refinish and electric box for at panel,”“replacing and replumbing faucets” for $1,000,“building a wall and installing a door under closet” for $1,500, and an additional “material cost” of $4,236.67. The total amount submitted on Feb. 13 was $13,886.67. It was paid the following day.

Times Staff reached out to Darren Lawson and to ask him about invoices.“I don’t know,” Lawson said, when asked if $1,500 seemed high for replacing bulbs.“There’s a lot more that goes into that.”

Lawson says he knows why he is suddenly being questioned and that someone is out to destroy his business. He said he plans to see an attorney to seek legal action.

According to the Secretary of State, Lawson Contracting was dissolved in November 2005 after failing to file an annual report within 60 days after it was due. Neither Lawson Contracting nor its agent Darren Lawson are represented by the Kentucky Secretary of State as being an active business agent or enterprise.

That is spot on. Hard truth. The reality is noone cares. They are like battered women and love taking a beating. I think it shows the ignorance when all these people with politcal bumper stickers that say democrat and also have a friends of coal sticker...lol. I cant wait until they run coal out of the area then see who you blame.

Greg is a good man. Floyd County is the only county in Kentucky that one doesn't have to reside in county to run for any office. One just has to register to vote in county and can live in others counties or states and run for any office in Floyd County. But you must register to vote in our county.

So you don't have to "live" here to vote here?
A) You can live in any other county?
B) You can live in other states?
Sounds like it's all set up for ACORN, why aren't they busing them in to vote for every democrat ever running for President?

Allow me to bust your BS Bubble (from a great distance of course).
To register you must:
•be a U.S. Citizen and a Kentucky resident for at least 28 days before election day;
•be at least 18 years old by the date of the next general election (if you will be 18 by the November general election, you are eligible to vote in the prior May primary election);
•not be a convicted felon or, if convicted of a felony offense, you must have had your civil rights restored. Contact your local parole office to obtain an application for restoration of civil rights;
•not have been judged "mentally incompetent" in a court of law and have voting rights removed; and
•not claim the right to vote anywhere outside Kentucky.
