• Thanks for pitching in local horseshoe league

    To the editor:

    I want to thank everyone who pitched horseshoes this year and hope all will come back next year and bring a friend or two. Thanks to all who helped. I want to thank those who came out for the state tournaments and the Bourbon Festival for letting us have one, too. It was a great turnout and we look forward to doing it next year. Everybody is welcome to come out to the Nelson County Fairgrounds and pitch — Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning April 29.

  • Attention needs to be brought to serious issue

    To the editor:

  • Brigadier General has done much for Kentucky

    To the editor:

    Who is Brigadier General Leslie E. Beavers and what has he done for Kentucky veterans?

  • Population surplus means planetary catastrophe

    To the editor:

    Rummaging around in Hebrew Scripture in order to pull random verses out of context and mistranslate them in support of positions previously arrived at is, at best, intellectual dishonesty.

    Hebrew Scripture says absolutely nothing about abortion. The closest it comes to it is in Exod. 21:22-25 wherein we learn that the accidental death of an unborn person (fetus) is not murder and does not require the death penalty for those who caused it.

  • Police officers do a great, often thankless job

    To the editor:

    I am responding about the protesters who are in this town. These people are trying all they can to help a thief.

    The men and women in law enforcement in this county do a great and often thankless job, and I will not let Louis Coleman and his gang sully their good reputation.

    If Carl Bailey Jr. wanted a TV, all he has to do is get a job, like the rest of America does, and then pay for it instead of stealing it.

  • Serious crimes should not get plea agreements

    To the editor:

    First, let me define the three most serious crimes in my opinion and probably 99 percent of the rest of the population: (1) murder, (2) sex crimes against children and (3) rape.

  • Reader responds to issues in newspaper

    To the editor:

    In December I noticed readers spoke out on three separate subjects that really interest me.

  • Take responsibility for your decisions

    To the editor:

    This is in reference to the Sunday, Dec. 23, 2007 article in The Kentucky Standard (lawsuit a possibility in fire that killed 10). I cannot imagine the sorrow of losing 10 family members at one time. My sympathy goes out to family and friends in their loss.

  • Family responds to fire lawsuit story

    To the editor:

    In response to the article in The Standard, the Litsey family would like to acknowledge that they are in no way involved in the lawsuit that has been filed.

    The family has found closure. We wish that everyone else would let them rest in peace.

  • Talk with drunk driver about its dangers

    To the editor:

    Drunk Driving is wrong.

    Murder with a $250,000 cash bond is wrong also.

    If this was my son who was killed in the car accident, I would be mad, hurt and may never want to talk with William Russell or his family. Did he try to run after spending months in the hospital? Or did he turn himself in to the law? He lost his best friend and will live with this forever. Dream of and think how again and again what I could have done to change things. Bad dreams, guilt, if only I had done this or that.
