  • It's about time government reverses the tide

    To the editor:

  • Reader takes opposition to recent letter

    To the editor:

    This article is in response to the letter written by Walt Pozgay in the Nov. 16, 2007 issue of The Kentucky Standard.

    Proverbs 31:8 tells us to “speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves.” So, in defense of all human life, from the moment of conception to natural death, it is of utmost importance to speak up for those unborn children who are so sadly slighted, forgotten, ignored, ripped of their rights, abused, and murdered by the pro-choice population.

  • Thanks for making BES Career Day a success

    To the editor:

  • Thanks for help with FFA scholarship program

    To the editor:

    An extremely big thank you goes out to Bardstown/Nelson County and Conway Heaton Dodge for their support of the Nelson County FFA. With your help, our FFA chapter was able to raise more than $4,500 for scholarships through the Hometown Scholarship Program. Monies raised will go directly to students in the form of scholarships to leadership conferences or activities, for awards and recognitions, and for collegiate scholarships. This is truly a testament to the support and enthusiasm our community has for its youth.

  • FFA Wickland Corn Maze was wickedly wonderful

    To the editor:

    The Nelson County FFA students, parents and advisers would like to thank Nelson County residents for their support with the Wickland Corn Maze.

    It was a surprise for those who were repeat visitors as we promised something bigger and better and that is exactly what each visitor received.

    We greatly appreciate Rachel Platt of WHAS-11 News for allowing our students to appear in her newscast and Randy Burba of Salt River Electric for the awesome spread in Kentucky Living Magazine. The crowds were larger and we have to give both of you credit for that.

  • Protect your dogs, cats from winter's weather

    To the editor:

    Winter, with its bitter wind, rain and snow, is rapidly approaching. Now is the time to check our dog houses, patching and repairing all cracks and leaks. It is also time for new, clean bedding, whether it be straw, blankets or carpeting. Putting a board along the bottom of the door opening will help keep the bedding inside the house. Turning the door away from the wind helps protect your dog from the cold.

    Cats also need a house, something in which they can get in, not just a box with a blanket in the garage or barn.

  • The right to choose begins before conception

    To the editor:

  • NCHS girls' basketball team thanks head coach

    To the editor:

    On behalf of the players and managers, the Nelson County girls’ basketball team would like to thank Coach Kelly Wood for all of his support. Your tireless dedication and caring attitude allow us to be the team that we are. We realize that a lot of your personal time went into renovating the girls’ locker room and we are very thankful for your never ending energy and constant support.

  • New Hope Food Bank says thanks for help

    To the editor:

    Those at the New Hope Food Bank would like to extend their gratitude to members of the New Haven Cub Pack No. 996 who dropped off hundreds and hundreds of cans of donated food items the past weekend. These young Cub Scouts exerted great time and effort to gather these cans and bring them to us. We are encouraged by the caliber of our local youth who are so willing to participate in such a worthwhile project.

    We commend members of Pack No. 996 for their community spirit and thank them most sincerely for their kind support.

  • The U.S. is starting to win the war in Iraq

    To the editor:

    Democrats in Washington will soon have no choice but to admit the obvious: The U.S. is winning the Iraq war and the President’s “surge” strategy has been a success.

    You can only deceive people so long before they figure out that the Democrats’ only agenda is to gain power, and even if it means cheering for the enemy while our soldiers put their lives on the line it seems they could care less. The left has used our soldiers as political pawns in their desperate pursuit of power, and have cost young Americans their lives.
