• LETTER: Tasting Bash a success, community support appreciated

    We would like to thank the Nelson County community for making this year’s My New Kentucky Home Habitat for Humanity Tasting Bash an incredible success!

    We raised just over $5,500 with more than 160 in attendance. Your support helps us accomplish our goal to build new affordable homes or perform critical home repairs, changing the lives of many.

  • Letter: Brand damage will quickly fade with better decisions being made

    As a Bardstown native and recent resident, I was very impressed by the hard work, resolve and discipline demonstrated by the Bardstown City Council recently in their investigation of complex issues and the difficult choices they made. Many could have rationalized ways to avoid those choices.

  • LETTER: NCS in search of alumni

    Nelson County Schools are looking for missing alumni.

    We need help in finding our missing classmates because not all of them are on the various social networking sites. If you are in contact with any of them, please direct them to our website.

    Finding our classmates will help us have a more successful alumni event on Saturday, Sept. 9, at Maywood Country Club.

    The group is available on Facebook at Nelson County Foundation. Just send us a message.

  • LETTER: Kentucky should expand foreign trade

    Kentucky has the opportunity to lead the world with foreign policy assistance through production and export of coal to China. One of North Korea’s main exports is coal, and China is their main customer. America should sanction North Korea by negotiating with China to stop buying North Korean coal and buy Kentucky coal instead.

  • LETTER: Tri-County United Way allocation explained

    Recently, the TriCounty Kentucky United Way allocations for 2017 were published. These funds are generated through voluntary payroll deductions from the employees of local businesses.

    Central Kentucky Community Action Council Inc.’s allocation will be used to assist families of low-income through many of the programs operated in Marion, Nelson and Washington counties.

  • LETTER: Watch out for motorcycles and don’t throw mowed grass on road

    Since spring has arrived, wonderful motorcycle weather is here. I’d like to put out some reminders to help make motorcycling safe.

    Please do not go out and buy your teenager a crotch rocket (sport/racing bike) or any other kind of bike until he or she takes the Kentucky Motorcycle Rider Education Program. Without proper training, these bikes can be death machines.

    The Kentucky Motorcycle Rider Education Program is offered at all the colleges and community colleges. Elizabethtown and Bowling Green are closest to our area.

  • Letter: Thank you, from the Room in the Inn board

    • Sunday — Bardstown Church of God and Souls’ Harbor Assembly of God

    • Monday — St. Thomas Catholic and Sisters of Charity of Nazareth

    • Tuesday — St. Joseph Catholic, St. Vincent De Paul Ministries, and St. Gregory Catholic

  • LETTER: Complaining Democrats are crying crocodile tears

    To the editor,

    The writer of the “cooler heads” column from Friday, April 7, is guilty of extremely selective memory as she attempts to paint the “nuclear option” regarding Supreme Court confirmations as a totally Republican activity.

    The policy of not confirming a justice in the waning months of a presidential term was initiated years ago by Democrat, Joe Biden, when Democrats had the majority in the Senate and a Republican president was nearing the end of his term.

  • LETTER: Show of support for mayor

    Good luck, mayor. I’m on your side!
