    To the editor,

    Just in time for the 45th anniversary of Earth Day this Wednesday, the U.S.  Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee has made it official: consumption of  animal products is not environmentally sustainable. Their conclusions match those of a massive 2010 United Nations report, which concluded that a global shift towards a vegan diet is vital to save the world from hunger, and fuel poverty and climate change.

    April is Child Abuse Awareness Month. There are a group of local volunteers who donate their time for the abused, neglected and dependent children of Nelson County. They make up NELCASA (Nelson County Court Appointed Special Advocates.)

    These volunteers act as “a child’s voice in court” for these children. CASA volunteers are “another set of eyes and ears of the court.” Along with Child Protective Services they assist the court in seeing that the best interest of children from birth to 18 years of age is being served.

    To the editor,

    To all who took the time to call, text, message by voice or video, have great words of encouragement, or even come to any of my games over the last 10 years, I would like to give you my greatest thank you.

    I have been playing basketball since my seventh grade year at Bardstown Middle School, into my high school seasons at Bardstown High School, and have just finished my college career at Canpbellsville University. And I have had so much support from so many people!

  • READERS' VIEWS: Bourbon Festival should allow alcohol on all grounds

    Bardstown Bourbon Festival should allow drinks all over the downtown area and on North Third Street so people can walk around and see shops and visit a true bourbon festival. Sell bourbon and drinks in front of shops on North Third and allow restaurants vending permits for alcohol. Open the festival up all over the downtown area.

    The story on drugs

    To the editor,

    We sometimes forget what law was established for in the first place. Laws were created to protect our freedom, not to define them. In a free society, social injustice, discrimination, inequality are all outlawed. The law has gone far beyond what was intended. It frames our thoughts; we are restricted by what is politically correct, despite what is obvious.

  • Lasure’s lessons had a lasting impact

    To the editor:

    I was shocked and saddened to hear of the recent death of Carter Lasure, a longtime educator who made a positive difference in the lives of several generations of students. Mr. Lasure taught at Bethlehem High School and later at Bluegrass Christian Academy. I am one of those former students, whose life was made better because Mr. Lasure saw potential in me and challenged me to realize that potential.

    With April Fools Day just past, it appears that the meat, egg, and dairy industries have been playing us for fools all year-round. Their  more remarkable hoaxes include “California’s happy cows,” “Free-range chickens,” “Humane slaughter.” All lies.
