    Isis is out to win.

    America needs to pay attention. They are smart.

    Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Africa, etc. Their plan is to divide and conquer.

    Let us focus on the head of the snake and kill it.

    Then, Lord willing, there will be peace on earth.

    To the editor,

    Facebook simply and unilaterally, with no communication or explanation, shut down Facebook accounts of licensed gun dealers.

    It would not surprise me if we discover that Facebook is following guidelines transmitted to Facebook and select others controlling social media and communications in this country. This could most likely be a parting shot by the president and the executive branch — an attempt to circumvent the will of the people, Congress and the Supreme Court.

  • NOTES OF THANKS: Feb. 10, 2016

    On behalf of the city of Bardstown and Nelson County Industries, a big thank you goes out to Jill Hawkins and the Bourbon Festival Committee for their generous contribution of a new recycling center sign, located just outside our entrance. Also thank you to Carey Sign Company for their beautiful work. As a bonus, Jill arranged for a smaller “open/closed” sign located toward the front right of the drive at the G.O. Center.

    Again, thanks to all involved.

    It’s time for Bardstown to review the 65-year-old ordinance that forbids keeping chickens in the city limits.

    Urban agriculture is growing in popularity all across the country. People are increasingly interested in using edible ornamentals in landscapes, vegetable gardening, and yes, keeping chickens.

  • NOTES OF THANKS: Strangers saved husband’s life

    On Jan. 21, the day after the big snowstorm, my husband was going down the driveway to the mailbox on his Jazzy electric scooter.
    Neighbors had shoveled out two tracks in the snow, so my husband felt secure. His Jazzy wheel got into some deep snow, however, and he spun out of control.
    He ended up lying in the driveway, hurt and bleeding. He screamed for help, but I didn’t hear him. He said that after what seemed like hours, a young man and his sister stopped to see if they could help.

  • READERS' VIEWS: Crystal Rogers is still missing?

    To the editor,

    I feel so bad for this family. Why has it taken so long to solve this case? It must be devastating every day that goes by for this case not to be solved.

    I vaguely knew Crystal, but what I saw was that she was a really good person and had a good family.

    Crystal’s parents and children need justice to be served for their mother and daughter.

    I can’t even imagine what they go through daily.

    I found a paper from Old Kentucky Home Middle School among my son’s schoolwork that describes a Muslim female student and her “hijab.” She states “I am a Muslim, and keeping my head covered is a sign of maturity and respect towards my religion and to Allah’s will.”

    In my considered opinion, according to Rev. 20:14, “The second death,” refers to destruction, not life of any kind, Dr. Albert Mohler.

    To the editor,

    After reading the article concerning Anthony Orr’s “Leadership Lab” in The Kentucky Standard, I thought to myself that the Nelson County superintendent would be a prime first candidate.

    It seems that one particular Nelson County school has issues with retaining teachers and principals. Since Orr is ultimately the “captain of the ship,” he could benefit from the Leadership Lab himself.
