  • 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.

  • New commissioner adds new direction

    “His experience will give him a tremendous network of relationships to draw on as he helps lead Kentucky schools forward.”

  • Pavilion honors former POW

    The United States and France have had mixed relations through the years.

  • Are we crazy? Feedback is requested for ideas

    One highlight of my job is the opportunity to teach children about our system of government. I teach mostly fourth-graders, but have also tried other levels. We begin with why people moved to America and end with examples of Representative Democracy at every level of governance. They learn that they have a voice in how government runs, and they should use it. We have a good time.

  • What America needs for some new people among us

    This December time of gift-preparing and gift-giving also includes a focus on persons who have to migrate to another country. Certainly our Christian and Jewish communities have this focus.

    One group of people “on the run” are workers in this country here without legal documents. This number has grown greatly in recent years, and what to do about it seems to have become a new deadly “third rail” in U.S. leadership selection this cycle.
