  • Reader prays best qualified candidate wins

    To the editor:

    In Ned Rosenbaum’s May 23 letter he mentioned President Abraham Lincoln and President John F. Kennedy. Just take a moment to remember: Both were assassinated. I fear for the candidates’ lives.

    This country is in such a turmoil I just pray for their safety and that the most qualified candidate who can get this country back on track wins. In fact, we are blessed for having candidates who want to be president. All of us should pray that the most qualified wins instead of all the criticism and mud slinging.

  • Columnist's accusation was wrong, inappropriate

    To the editor:

    Charley Reese, a self-described Christian Conservative Bush-Cheney supporter, has stooped to a new low. In the May 25 Kentucky Standard he joined the Conservatives who are celebrating the news of Senator Ted Kennedy’s brain cancer. They have mocked and ridiculed the family and Reese has joined in by attacking the dead. He attacks the late President John F. Kennedy and blames him for all the world’s problems and claims “He got us into the war in Vietnam.” That statement is simply a lie.

  • Do we really know how to love?

    To the editor:

    As I was driving home from work last week, there was a sign at a church: ‘If you are looking for love, you came to the right place.’ Arriving home, I sat at my table and said these words in my head, ‘looking for love; you came to the right place.’

    In the dictionary love means to feel tender affection for somebody such as a close relative, or friend or for something such as a place, an idea or an animal.

  • Obama is the country's best chance for change

    To the editor:

    In March, 1861 Abraham Lincoln was a lanky, 52-year-old, largely self-educated lawyer who had never previously held national office. He had seldom even left the tri-state area of his birth, but most historians, and common people, too, agree that this “greenhorn” was our finest President.

    What made Lincoln great? He was intelligent, perceptive, a shrewd judge of people and situations and incorruptible. Using these qualities he led us successfully through the darkest days our young country had yet faced.

  • Thanks for making Alumni Day a success

    To the editor:

    Nazareth Montessori Children’s Center recently had its ‘Alumni Day.’ It was a chance for former students and their families to spend an afternoon at the school which started their educational growth.

    I was delighted to see that more than 100 families came to reminisce, work on art and crafts, sew a little something special and be creative with wood. Everyone enjoyed the ice cream cones and remembering their time at our school.

    Thank you to all who came and an extra special thanks to the staff for making it a wonderful afternoon.
