  • NOTE OF THANKS: Support felt and thoughtfulness appreciated

    Although mere words could never express how much we appreciate everything that has been done for us over the past month, we wanted to simply say, “Thank you.”

    The tragedy which struck our family on Dec. 18, 2014, was devastating and senseless. However, when the need arose, you (our family, our friends and our communities) came to our aid in any way and every way possible. No matter if you called, texted, sent a donation or just uttered a prayer for us, we felt your support and appreciate your thoughtfulness.

    Heroin, hitting home invading the white sector more than black. Where was all this legislation and help for the crack addict. Oh, crack was for the blacks, so who cared?

    Earlier this month, the Kentucky House of Representatives passed HB 145, which simply asks people to step outside if they would like to smoke. Now the issue has gone to the Kentucky Senate as Senate Bill 189.

    I agree with Don Chamberlain regarding a need for more parking in Bardstown.

    In the eight years since I moved here, I have witnessed a substantial increase in traffic flow in the community. I do have an issue with the “public parking” downtown. I see the same cars parked in this area day after day, and I know these vehicles do not belong to tourists. The sign indicating two-hour parking apparently does not apply to these vehicles.

    To the editor,

    This Wednesday marked the beginning of Lent, the 40-day period before Easter, when many Christians abstain from animal foods in remembrance of Jesus’ 40 days of fasting in the desert before launching his ministry.

    To the editor,

    This letter is in reference to Sarah Wimsatt’s letter published Feb. 6. You are totally off base here. First of all, I don’t think you have had the distinct pleasure of getting to know the entire Sheckles family to be able to comment about us being mad or sour about Bill not being re-elected. Race does not have a thing to do with this situation; it is about the lack of respect shown by the current mayor for this event.

    To the editor,

    The tax season can be hectic, frustrating and stressful for some, while celebratory for others. During any portion of the year, it is quite refreshing when wholesome human qualities shine through in Workforce-America. 

    Brown & Co. CPA contacted our local soccer association, who then contacted a supporter of the sport, to inform him of a find to the black nearly a year old. Shout out to ya’lls on the hill (I know who you are!) for your integrity, honesty, efficiency and due-diligence, and to NCYSA for your follow through.

    Yes, it is time to include politician as a career. I think this may have occurred when we established a federal government. I am not sure at this moment what are the qualifications to be a politician. For most jobs, there is a set of criteria; for example, to be a doctor (someone that affects the life of their charges), one must demonstrate exceptional intelligence and wisdom. For a lawyer, a demonstration of logic and righteousness in cause set the standard.
