Today's Opinions

  • Thanks for support of activity program

    To the editor:

    As Activity Director of Windsor Gardens CCRC I have had the opportunity to work with many wonderful individuals, groups and organizations that have generously donated time and talent to our activity program.

  • 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.

  • Tourism benefits entire county

    Tourists bring more than curiosity about what an area has to offer and they need more than entertainment and souvenirs. They also need somewhere to eat, a place to rest and fuel for their vehicles. They leave some of their money and return from whence they came to spread the word about the good time they had.

    Thus, all communities should capitalize on their tourism opportunities. The newly formed Northeast Nelson Community Development Agency realizes that.

  • Now it's time for school to heal

    Dr. Paul Schum has stepped down as principal of Bethlehem High School.

    The news came down Thursday that because of his current legal woes and the effect it is having on the staff and students of Bethlehem, he was resigning from the school’s top post. We believe that is a wise decision.

  • Looking into our past is a way to find our future

    Genealogy research is one of those things that everyone would like to do, but few people ever tackle. In today’s hectic world, people don’t think they have the time to delve into their family’s past, and those who do have time are often intimidated by the sheer volume and minutiae of the records they’ll encounter.

  • Celebrating varied holiday traditions with others

    Growing up, my family celebrated Christmas. I remember setting up the nativity scene at my grandfather’s house and lighting advent candles each Sunday in December. The nativity characters we had at my house were made of clay, glazed and painted with a central-American look. The tiny figures were painted in tones of blue and black. The group would sit patiently on the kitchen table all month in anticipation of their star — baby Jesus.

  • 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.
