  • NOTES OF THANKS: Nov. 28, 2014

    To the editor,

    Boston was awakened on March 23 to the news that the Boston Community Center had been heavily damaged by fire of unknown origin.

    Today, the center has been totally renovated and greatly improved.

    Thanks to the Boston Volunteer Fire Department for fighting the fire the night before. Not only did they fight that fire, but they helped save pictures from the past and merchandise from the gift shop, and even stored a lot of items at the firehouse until they could be brought back to the center.

    To the editor,

    The Optimist Club and Optimist Youth Vote Committee would like to especially thank the youth at Bardstown Baptist Church for their sponsorship of a poll. They were inadvertently left off of our thank you ad.

    We also want to thank all the volunteers who make this experience for our children such an authentic one and for the community’s continued support of Optimist Youth Vote. We would appreciate hearing from you if you have suggestions or comments. You can contact the Optimist Club at Kenneth.distler@optimistmail.org.

  • READER'S VIEW: I’ve heard this song before

    To the editor,

    Finally, a suggestion to fill the vital infrastructure. Yes, that is right, the graying of America. The problem with Social Security is that there is no great influx of young workers. What better way to fill this gap than to create a new class of workers? One that will pay taxes but be in servitude.

    Is this what the founding fathers meant by three-fifths?

  • READER'S VIEW: Protect outdoor pets in winter

    To the editor,

    Winter, with its bitter wind, rain and snow, is rapidly approaching. Now is the time to check our doghouses, patching and repairing cracks and leaks. It is also time for new, clean bedding. Straw is best, and will need to be replaced often. Putting a board along the bottom of the door opening will help keep the bedding inside the house. Also, turning the door away from the wind helps protect your dog from the cold.

    To the editor,

  • NOTE OF THANKS: Thank you, veterans

    To the editor,

    On Tuesday, Nov. 11, men from American Legion Post 42 of Nelson County visited my school, Bardstown High School. The veterans accompanied students in social studies classes and shared with us their military experiences and what Veterans Day means to them. Many students, including myself, were both shocked and moved by the sacrifices these brave men have made for our country to protect our freedom and allow us to live the life we do.

  • READERS' VIEWS: Some things had to be said

    I am writing this in regard to Mildred Thompson’s letter on Nov. 7.

    I live in Nazareth Village I.  I have seen several changes occur in the time that I have been here. Primarily, there has always been severe discrimination between Village I and Village II, under Sister Ann’s administration. Village II was well favored, Village I was pretty much overlooked. I will have to say that under the directorship of Vicki Ward and Crystal Welch, the discrimination gap has narrowed from the huge gap it was before.

  • NOTE OF THANKS: Thank you, master gardeners

    To the editor,

    A million thank yous to a hardworking group of master gardeners who are volunteers for Bardstown’s Main Street program.  These five diehards braved the cold weather when they grabbed their shovels and reworked the flower bed on the corner of 62 and 150 by the old Keene’s store. 

  • NOTE OF THANKS: Jobs well done
