    Isaiah House is the largest faith-based or “Christ-centered” drug treatment and rehab program in Kentucky and serves the entire state.

    The mission of the program is “to provide the best possible addiction treatment care” for clients and their families. Isaiah House is not just a religious mission. It is a state-licensed alcohol and other drug entity and a state-licensed behavioral health service organization. It is also one of the few treatment centers in the state to achieve national accreditation by the Kentucky Joint Commission.

  • Editorial: Local NAACP chapter aims to protect equality for all

    After 12 years, Nelson County once again has a branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. And a good case can be made that its local rebirth is a result of a perception by many that the country is going the wrong direction concerning voter rights.

    The Rev. Jewel Brock, who was elected last week as president of the branch, says that is why he decided to get involved although he is not a joiner.

  • OPINON: Safety should be concern for more than police officers

    The Nelson County Sheriff’s Office recently hosted a training session on officer safety and reminded the participants that complacency kills.

    The training was geared toward law enforcement. Officers deal with dangerous situations every day. That’s why we give them guns and bulletproof vests and authorize them to use their discretion to decide when to shoot and possibly kill someone. Every time they respond to a call, there is the potential for it to become a life-or-death situation.

  • OPINON: ‘Beauty and the Beast’ offers more than entertainment

    Riding high on the release of the live-action Disney film version, this year’s second show for The Stephen Foster Drama Association is “Beauty and the Beast.” The show, as well as events such as the recent Be Our Guest Tea Party, has done a great job at appealing to children, not only providing a second family show, but by drawing them into theater, offering exercise for imaginations and fostering interest in the arts.

  • Editorial: Monuments and tributes honor those who fought for our freedom

    The county’s latest tribute to local veterans is taking shape in Bloomfield thanks to Marylou Muir Crume.

    Crume, who is originally from Bloomfield, has been working to create a pictorial Veterans Wall at the American Legion Post 288 to honor local veterans from the Bloomfield, Chaplin and Fairfield areas.

    Food allergies are serious — deadly serious. They occur when our bodies mistake protein particles as invading germs. The overreaction by the immune system can have serious ramifications.

    Living with a food allergy is a constant battle of searching lists of ingredients for any mention of an allergen that must be avoided, and eating out becomes problematic. Children and adults alike can be hit with allergies to food.

  • Editorial: BPD chief must be committed to professionalism, community ties

    Sometimes the hardest decision an employer makes when judging a potential hire is not about whether he is qualified, but whether he will be a good fit with the organization.

  • EDITORIAL: Body image not the total picture

    Felicia Delaney faced a struggle many of us, especially women, experience on a daily basis. She had issues with her own body image and self-esteem. But she reacted differently than a lot of people do. Rather than feel sorry for herself or belittle herself for what women are frequently told are shortcomings or inadequacies, she focused on using her personal struggles to inspire other women who were feeling as she had. To do that, she started The 4th Trimester Chronicles on her website.
