    Thank you to everyone who came and participated in Relay For Life of Nelson County 2016. The weather was beautiful, and the crowd was great.

    There were over 100 survivors to register this year and get their medals placed on them by our beauty queen volunteers, Jordan and Brooklyn.

    The survivors were handed balloons and walked with them in the survivor lap, and released them at the end. Caregivers were given white balloons to release.

    The Bible says, “Judge not lest ye be judged.”

    I cannot believe the column Randy Patrick wrote about Christians supporting Donald J. Trump for president.

    Didn’t Christ say, “Those without sin, cast the first stone”?

    Trump supporters aren’t looking for a Sunday school teacher or a preacher. They’re looking for someone who will again bring strength to the leadership of this great nation.

    To the editor,

    While I can readily agree with much of Mr. Joe Zarantonello’s column and his advice about de-stressing during election season — including turning off corporate news, attempting to mind my own business, (realizing that outcomes may often differ from what I desire), and searching for a reliable source of news — I must disagree with his recommended source for “reliable” news.

    To the editor,

    I am writing today in appreciation of the wonderful services provided by and through the Nelson County Public Library.

    The library has always been surprisingly responsive to my requests and suggestions, such as: changing their e-mailed “late notices” to be sent out on the day an item is due, rather than two days after the date; and purchasing or requesting new items through interlibrary loan. The programming they offer for children and families is a godsend, providing educational and social activities for all ages.

    St. Vincent de Paul would like to thank the many individuals, churches, organizations and companies that were instrumental in making its Bread for Life Community Food Pantry a reality.

    To the Editor:

    I have heard it said many times and in many places, “Our greatest resource is our people.” The Nelson County business community has taken that sentiment to a new level, to the benefit of our schools and our children.

    It is no wonder that Nelson County has earned designation as a Work Ready Community, one of only 26 Kentucky counties to have achieved that honor so far.

    Each year United Way is looking for ways to help our community through grant awards. This is a tough job, because there are many worthy causes that are requesting assistance. The allocations committee spends much time discussing the needs and how to best use donor dollars. I am very grateful for the volunteer time given by those serving on the allocations committee. I am also very thankful that Kenny Fogle is sharing the United Way message with those in Nelson County. Thank you, community members for donations to United Way!

    Mr. Mayor, your open letter to Bardstown in The Kentucky Standard does not match your actions. It seems that you are unwilling to let department heads make their own decisions. It has become clear that you will not stop until you have appointed your friends to these positions. With your two accomplices on the City Council, your consolidation of power will almost be complete.

    To the editor,

    I voted for Mayor Royalty. If I had known about what happened in Lexington, I would not have voted for him.

    I always read The Kentucky Standard, three times a week, until this mess surfaced with him. I never saw anything about Lexington. Why was this not told at election time?

    We have a great Police Department. We won’t now. I just hope more officers don’t quit.

    Our Police Department is “dependable,” they show up fast, and do their job.
