  • Pray for U.S. soldiers during the holiday season

    To the editor:

    I’m writing to ask everyone to keep our fighting men and women in their thoughts and prayers during this holiday season.

    It doesn’t matter if you agree with the war or not. It just matters that our soldiers know we appreciate them and are proud of their sacrifices that they make daily in the name of freedom, honor and country. Today’s soldiers are proving they are the new “greatest generation” and should never be forgotten or underestimated. God bless this country and for what it stands along with those who defend it.

  • Brutality charges hurt on-duty police officers

    To the editor:

  • Thanks for help with Lunch with Santa event

    To the editor:

    On behalf of the Bardstown Woman’s Club, I would like to thank everyone who made our Lunch With Santa another success: Michael Bickett, principal of St. Joe School, Mike Mitro, the cafeteria staff, the Nelson County High School Key Club, Santa, the media, and especially all the members of the club. We have been hosting Lunch With Santa for more than 25 years and each year the community support exceeds the year before.

    The club meets the fourth Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m. at the Bardstown Baptist Church.

  • Fatal car crash was an accident; not murder

    To the editor:

    This letter is to bring attention to the tragedies that can and will happen by allowing underage drinking.

    On March 10, 2007, William Russell went to a party at the home of Josh Williams in Bardstown. It was spring break for William and his friend Josh, who were both college freshmen. Both boys were 19 years old, both under the legal drinking age. But there was alcohol involved.

  • Principal's actions should be forgiven

    To the editor:

    As I sat around the table of five last Friday night for my favorite meal (bean soup and cornbread) with my favorite family there is always a table of discussion prior and during the meal. I do not recall how the discussion came about of the Bethlehem High School Principal Mr. Schum and the feelings that surrounded that event; however, many people were left with the thought what happened and why.

  • Thanks for help with Parade of Music programs

    To the editor:

  • Thank you for help with Light Up Bloomfield

    To the editor:

    On behalf of the City of Bloomfield I would like to thank the organizations and individuals who helped make “Light Up Bloomfield” a success. The turnout was amazing and everyone enjoyed themselves, especially the children who visited with Santa.

  • Hunters are finding it hard to locate a place to hunt

    To the editor:

    I wish to comment on your recent article published in the Sports Section, which dealt with the increase in “young” hunters, while the number of hunters as a whole is declining. It is evident that the deer herd in Kentucky is increasing, and the opportunity to harvest a deer while hunting is very likely. If the number of hunters continues to decline, and not enough deer are harvested, we are going to see a substantial increase in the number of deer related highway accidents, crop damage, and disease.

  • 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.
