• LETTER: Bill creates no added ‘burdens or costs’

    To the editor,

    As expected whenever one sees an anti-gun opinion article in today’s media, that article is full of false assumptions, false facts and emotionalism.

    To begin with, the entire article clearly makes the insulting assumption that those (proven) honest citizens who obtain concealed carry permits are dangerous, incompetent, malevolent, or all three.

  • LETTER: Tell me about Kentucky

    Dear people of the great state of Kentucky,

    Hello! I am a third-grade student in Northern Virginia. In third grade, we do state reports, and l have chosen your state. I am very excited to learn more about the great state of Kentucky as I work on my report.

    Most of the information that we get for our reports will be from books and websites. We also like to get information from people who live in the state, too.

    The New Life Center would like to sincerely thank the following for their contribution to a most successful Chocolate Extravaganza:

  • Letter: SB 10 would make Kentucky more connected, competitive

    To the editor,

    The vast majority of today’s businesses and consumers utilize innovative services such as wireless and broadband — so why is Kentucky still forcing  companies to invest in outdated, nearly obsolete technologies?

    Senate Bill 10 would give telecom providers the freedom to allocate their resources as they see fit. For most, this means investing in the 21st century technologies that Kentuckians have come to rely on.

  • Letter: Bevin was trying to be nice

    To the editor,

    I must say that I agree with the Al Cross column printed in the Feb. 19 paper.

    Gov. Bevin should have been more clear with all Kentucky taxpayers about the situation with the Kentucky retirement system. He should have been clear that it is some $82 billion, with a b, in the hole. He should have also been more clear as to why the retirement system is in such bad shape.

    Are you ready for some cold hard facts?

  • Letter: Archery team appreciates support after theft

    The All Saints Archery Team, their families and St. Gregory and St. Joseph Schools would like to extend their sincere appreciation to all those who have supported our program after the recent theft of our archery trailer. 

    The outpouring of support has truly been overwhelming and, while we could never personally thank everyone, we appreciate all those who have helped us get back on track in our preparation for our regional tournament and the rest of the season.

  • Letter: Colleague recalls New Haven’s Michael Cecil

    Twenty years ago, on Feb. 11, 1997, the town of New Haven, said goodbye to one of its sons. Michael J. Cecil was tragically injured during a training exercise with the U.S. Marine Corps at Parris Island in South Carolina. His loss was felt across the small community, not only because at the time his mother, Tessie Cecil, was mayor, but also because his dedication to volunteering with the New Haven/Rolling Fork Fire Department.

  • Letter: You could have stopped

    To the person driving the white Ford Edge SUV on Templin Ave. Jan. 23, you hit my dog, and yes, she died. It was my fault she got out of my yard but I was out looking for her when you hit her. You could have at least stopped.

    I’m just glad I don’t know you.

  • READERS' VIEWS: Pick up litter to help keep our community, and your area, clean

    To the editor,
    Kentucky is a beautiful state, and Bardstown and Nelson County have some of the loveliest scenery. One thing that detracts from the charm is the litter seen along the roads leading into Bardstown and in its shopping centers. A major eyesore is the area around the National Guard, Goodwill and the Kroger parking lot.
    Who is responsible for keeping these areas clean?
    Kentucky has laws against littering, and I would think the city and county have ordinances as well. If not, maybe the new City Council could work on this.
