  • READER'S VIEW: Who is singing ‘Y-M-C-A’ in Nelson County?

    You know it’s election season in Nelson County when you hear the chorus of political candidates singing “Y-M-C-A.” They pretend they represent the Village People, but in actuality, they’re more like the village idiots.

  • READER'S VIEW: Tim Hutchins for judge-executive

    To the editor,

    I would like to take the time to tell the citizens of Nelson County why I am voting for Tim Hutchins for county judge/executive.

    Tim has a vision. It is a vision that this county needs. Attracting good paying jobs for our children so they do not have to move away is one part. Also, Tim has a plan in his vision to help clean up the drug problem we have in Nelson County.

    Every day, the American Red Cross assists people who face emergencies. We secure food and lodging for families devastated by a home fire. We help deployed soldiers return home for the birth of a child or the death of a loved one. We provide blood to the child battling cancer.

    On Nov. 4, Kentuckians have a choice between Alison Lundergan Grimes and Mitch McConnell.

    Grimes has said in her ads what she would do if elected: work to raise the minimum wage, work for equal pay for women and work to bring jobs to Kentucky.

  • READERS' VIEWS: Clean water is at risk

    To the editor,

    In Kentucky, we are blessed with lots of fresh water. But much of that water is at risk.

  • READER'S VIEW: Participation is a civic duty

    It could be said that all politics is local. I am sure a political scientist would disagree vehemently, scholars would find this too simplistic, yet the fact remains that what I see of government is local. It actually does mean a great deal, what the local official proposes to make our lives better. It is important that we demand plans, we demand to know what is needed of us and what we can expect.

    To the editor,

    On behalf of the Nelson County Retired Teachers, I would like to publically thank the New Haven Iron Horse Festival for naming retired educators as grand marshals of the parade. We were very honored and pleased.

    The theme of this year’s Iron Horse Festival was “Teach the Children Well,” and as the song goes: “And know they love you.”

    Educators love their students and it was very gratifying to hear the love back from the New Haven Iron Horse Festival.

    Over the years, one of the most important and meaningful bumper stickers I have noted is one reading: “Support your local police and keep them independent.”

    It made sense: Local police because they are closer to the people, have better knowledge and understanding of the area and are responsive to the people being protected; and independent, meaning independent of the whims of potential tyrants far away who don’t know or care about the local area or population.
