• READER'S VIEW: City blind to traffic solution

    From the Standard’s report on the most recent between residents and the city on the road diet for Third Street, sounds as if feelings were split.

    I applaud the residents who were against this road diet. I have been over this area of Third Street that is affected.

    To the editor.

    Here is an editorial which I would like published that I sent in an e-mail to the Nelson County Fiscal Court regarding firearm restrictions by using Bardstown’s noise ordinance, which would restrict firearms based on the noise level. One section in this Ordinance states the following:

    An opposing view on birth control

    In lieu of the left’s attempt to control the narrative on the recent Supreme Court ruling, I would like to offer an explanation and rebuttal.

    Access to contraceptives is not being restricted, the ability of the government to mandate an employer to pay for it is.

    To the editor,

    After reading the Kentucky Standard article in the 4th of July issue, reporting what Sen. Mitch McConnell said at a recent meeting with Rotarians and members of the Chamber of Commerce, it is easy to conclude that Sen. McConnell has a BS degree. The B representing bovine,  and the S is for scatology.

    I think the dude is full of bovine scatology.

    To the editor,

    I am deeply disturbed that Nelson County Fiscal Court would even be considering a proposal to interfere with the lawful use of firearms in Nelson County.

  • READER'S VIEW: Assess negative statements with suspicion

    To the editor,

    Knowing the truth and believing we know the truth can be two entirely different things.

    I don’t know the truth about Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, but neither do most, if any, of those who write so authoritatively about him.

    What I do know is the willingness of some to denigrate the military service of good men for political advantage.

  • READER'S VIEW: Most of clerk’s records online

    To the editor,

    I am a longtime friend of Nelson County Clerk Elaine Filiatreau and a retired legal secretary of more than 40 years, 35 years spent exclusively in real estate work performing title examinations, preparing legal documents and closing loans, so I am more than familiar with the records of that office.
