  • Letter: In response to Rebecca Clark Brothers

    To the editor,

    To Ms. Brothers, regarding your recent article about our cemeteries: Cox’s Creek Baptist Church Cemetery was heavily damaged in the terrible tornado of 1942, as was the church building. Stones in the cemetery were damaged and misplaced in the oldest part of the cemetery and there were no adequate records kept from that time period to enable church members to accurately restore this portion.

    Since there was really no way to pinpoint who was buried where, this section has been left alone, but maintained as well as possible.

  • Letter: Question to Gov. Bevin on ‘Keeping the Promise’

    To the editor,

    I just finished reading the article ‘Keeping the Promise’ in the Oct. 22 edition of The Kentucky Standard.

    It reads that new non-hazardous duty employees and teachers will be enrolled in the defined contribution retirement plan that provides comparable or better retirement benefits than the current defined benefits plan. Hazardous duty employees will continue in the same plan as now — defined benefits.

  • LETTER: NELCASA in need of volunteers

    To the Nelson County Community,

  • Letter: Awaiting discussion that addresses funding but doesn’t break promises

    I am deeply concerned about the pension reform framework recently made public.

    These proposals challenge the contract rights of members, lower the standard of living of employees now and in retirement, and will worsen the cash-flow crisis in the state employee pension plan.

  • Thanks for all your work for the Bourbon Capital Pancake Breakfast

    The Knights of Columbus, Bardstown Council 1290, would like to thank Willett Distillery, Blendpak, 150 Quick Stop and Save-a-Lot for sponsoring our Bourbon Capital Pancake Breakfast during the Kentucky Bourbon Festival.

    The breakfast was a big success, serving over 500 meals to those attending the festival and members of the community.

  • Letter: ‘It restored my faith in people again’

    The news lately is all bad. Everything is politics or something bad. You get a few good stories, but it’s not something that you really care about. But I hope this is something other people can look at and it makes them happy.

  • LETTER: Thanks for volunteering and donating blood

    My wife is a native Kentuckian. I’m “not from around here,” as they like to say.
    I’ve always been impressed with the caring and giving nature of this community.
    I am the post chaplain at American Legion Post 121, and every two months we sponsor a blood drive for the American Red Cross.
    On Monday, Oct. 9, we collected 50 units of blood. Every donation has the potential to save three lives.

  • LETTER: Article was perfect

    To the editor,
    I just wanted to let the management know just how pleased I was with the article, “Twice the Fight.”
    The article was about me, and I was so happy with everything. Kacie Goode is such a wonderful person and made me feel so at ease about such a personal situation. She reported everything I wanted. The pictures were perfect.
    You always hear everything bad about people.
    I just wanted you to hear something great. Kacie did my article perfectly.
    Thank you.
    Debbie Paulley

  • LETTER: Share your appreciation for retired teachers

    To the editor,
    In 2014 the General Assembly adapted House Resolution 19 declaring the third week of October to be the Kentucky Retired Teachers Appreciation Week.
    October 15-21 is the sixth annual appreciation week.  During this special week, the mayor will sign a proclamation designating Retired Teachers Appreciation Week. You will also see a banner hanging at the courthouse.
