  • 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 believes murder charge was too strong

    To the editor:

  • Thanks for being patient during daughter's ordeal

    To the editor;

    I would like to take this time to wish District One and the rest of Nelson County a Merry Christmas.

    Thank you for being patient and understanding while my daughter, Natalie, was recovering from a near fatal car wreck. Thank you for the cards, letters and prayers. We thank Flaget Hospital for Natalie’s care and a special thanks to the ambulance crew members who transported Natalie to Kosair Hospital.

  • 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.

  • 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.
