    To the editor:

    Flaget Hospital Auxiliary would like to thank the community and our sponsors for their help in making our Christmas Bazaar such a great success. That success will allow us to continue to sponsor our five $1,000 scholarships to Nelson County students going into the medical field and also our “Buddy Bear” program, which gives bears to sick children who enter our emergency room to help alleviate some of their fear.

  • LETTER: Delighted by random kindness

    To the editor,

    Recently while I was driving through a local fast food restaurant, the car in front of me paid for my purchases.

    How surprised and delighted I was for this anonymous, random act of kindness.

    The Invisible Santa had chosen to bless me with a special gift.

    Thank you, Invisible Santa.

    The blessing has been paid forward and will continue by me.

    Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus!

  • Letter: The ball is in your court

    To the editor:

    Simpson, Brown, Brauch, Hibbs, Spalding, Heaton, Sheckles.

    These were our past mayors: good, level-headed responsible people. Unfortunately, attributes the current mayor doesn’t have and is unlikely to acquire. His latest regulation he is proposing is another example of his self-centered attitude, in which he does spell “team” with a “me.”

    Two options left to make chaotic term positive:

    Be impeached


    Ball is in your court; don’t take it and go home.

  • READERS' VIEWS: Kentucky House new majority to make a better, more prosperous Kentucky

    As we know, Kentuckians as a culture largely avoid change. On Nov. 8, Kentuckians went against the nearly 100-year grain and elected a Republican majority in the Kentucky House of Representatives. Kentuckians are ready for a change in House leadership that will bring about a new direction for our commonwealth through more jobs and business opportunities.

  • Letter: When I was a child ...

    People are always writing to you about what happened to them as a child, so here is mine.

    When I was a little girl about 10 years old, I walked down the railroad track, as I did every day and I always stopped by the depot to talk to the men who were working there.

    One of the men said to me, Honey, we’re getting ready to pull out, and if you will wait a few minutes we’ll let you ride, so you won’t get caught on that trestle.

    So I got on the train, and they let me off at Mr. Kelly Curtsinger’s lane.
