  • READERS’ VIEWS: Oct. 24, 2014

    Four years ago I made the decision to run for mayor of Bardstown. My interest in running for mayor was to have a business-friendly mayor who could bridge the gap between city government and our local business community with an open door policy, also to keep the historical significance of our city and its image as a top priority.

    In light of many things that have transpired over the last four years, I believe our city needs a change in leadership now more than ever.

    As a young lady growing up in Nelson County many years ago, I have seen a lot of changes over the years — mostly over the past few years. I believe we have gone from a county that used to feel safe to one where we now keep our doors locked while at home.

    I have always wanted the very best for my children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. That best is not having a horrible drug problem. It’s not enough that three people have been murdered in the last couple of years and the killer or killers remain at large.

  • READERS’ VIEWS: Oct. 24, 2014

    I’m writing about your recent editorial concerning the troubling cases of deaths of young children from child abuse in Kentucky.

    The writers seemed puzzled and troubled by this. They shouldn’t be surprised.

    In two separate rulings on Jan. 22, 1973, the Supreme Court created a culture of death in the U.S. You can’t declare war on the most vulnerable of all — the baby in the womb without dire consequences. Almost 60 million deaths later, just from surgical abortion, we are reaping the consequences.

  • 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.

  • NOTES OF THANKS: Oct. 15, 2014

    To the editor,

    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.

    To the editor,

    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.
