• Residents should be proud of McConnell's record

    To the editor:

    With the announcement of an Iraq veteran as the Democrat candidate to take Senator Mitch McConnell’s seat in the Senate, I became even more disgusted with the Democratic Party. This is the greatest oxymoron that I have ever seen. For a party that had its Senate leader declare that the war was lost while this soldier was in the field to have the unmitigated gall to use this soldier in this way is the height of arrogance.

  • Reader upset over friend's shed lawsuit

    To the editor:

    Sue you, sue me blues. How many times have I heard these words? Strangers were always involved when I heard about a new suit being filed. That is, until this past week. I was told that a friend is being sued, and sued because she had a shed placed on her property. I vividly remember the day I met my friend. We were introduced in church. She didn’t want to shake my hand. She insisted on hugging me — a complete stranger. As we hugged one another, I felt as though my mother was sending me a hug. I have loved the lady ever since.

    To the editor:

    On behalf of Boy Scouts of Troop 439 in Chaplin, I would like to extend a big thank you to Bloomfield Chess Club and Mr. Martin for seven years of loyal support in our Scouting for Food program. This group has helped place a lot of food on tables during the holidays of some who are less privileged, at a very stressful time. Also thanks to the communities of Chaplin/Bloomfield for your continuing support.

    God bless and Merry Christmas.

  • Americans no longer support the war

    To the editor:

    The American people no longer support the war in Iraq. Poll after poll tells us that a huge majority of Americans are in favor of ending this war. President Bush, however, still “believes” that the war is both justified and of benefit to Iraq and America. The President also “believed” in weapons of mass destruction, and “believed” there was a link between Iraq and 9/11. Neither of those “beliefs” proved to be true.

  • Thank you for help with Thanksgiving Dinner

    To the editor:

    The Ministerial Association of Bardstown and Nelson County would like to say “thank you” to all who helped make the Community Thanksgiving dinner possible. The success of our 25th year offering this meal to the community was a result of the efforts of many who gave their time and talents. Purchase of food for the dinner was supported by donations from individuals, organizations, and local businesses, for which we are grateful. The remaining money will be used by the Ministerial Association to assist transients in need.

  • Reader surprised by school's reaction to incident

    To the editor:

    As a former Bardstonian, I’d like to enlist the help of my former townsfolk before I go completely crazy. You see, for the past month or so I’ve been having this recurring nightmare; at least I hope it’s only a nightmare.
