  • Letter: ‘It restored my faith in people again’

    The news lately is all bad. Everything is politics or something bad. You get a few good stories, but it’s not something that you really care about. But I hope this is something other people can look at and it makes them happy.

  • LETTER: Thanks for volunteering and donating blood

    My wife is a native Kentuckian. I’m “not from around here,” as they like to say.
    I’ve always been impressed with the caring and giving nature of this community.
    I am the post chaplain at American Legion Post 121, and every two months we sponsor a blood drive for the American Red Cross.
    On Monday, Oct. 9, we collected 50 units of blood. Every donation has the potential to save three lives.

  • LETTER: Article was perfect

    To the editor,
    I just wanted to let the management know just how pleased I was with the article, “Twice the Fight.”
    The article was about me, and I was so happy with everything. Kacie Goode is such a wonderful person and made me feel so at ease about such a personal situation. She reported everything I wanted. The pictures were perfect.
    You always hear everything bad about people.
    I just wanted you to hear something great. Kacie did my article perfectly.
    Thank you.
    Debbie Paulley

  • LETTER: Share your appreciation for retired teachers

    To the editor,
    In 2014 the General Assembly adapted House Resolution 19 declaring the third week of October to be the Kentucky Retired Teachers Appreciation Week.
    October 15-21 is the sixth annual appreciation week.  During this special week, the mayor will sign a proclamation designating Retired Teachers Appreciation Week. You will also see a banner hanging at the courthouse.

  • LETTER: Copeland should pay it forward

    To the editor,
    Kecia Copelend, I admire you and have built tremendous respect for you as you stood up to the bullies an downright disrespect that you and our community endured. It showed that you love Bardstown and the people you represent. With that being said, I’m concerned with the recent decision by the City Council and Bardstown agreeing to pay you $40,000 to keep it out of court.
    I don’t disagree that you should have sued. However, in the end the perpetrators aren’t the ones paying the $40,000. It’s the taxpayers.

  • LETTER: Donation will help students learn

    To the editor,
    On behalf of Nelson County Schools, I would like to thank First Baptist Church of New Haven’s vacation Bible school class for their support of The Village FRYSC. Your generous monetary donation will go a long way to helping bridge the gaps to learning for many New Haven students.

  • LETTER: Homeowner respects regulations of historic district, wants them applied with fairness and integrity

    I was given instructions by Logan Spaulding for a stopping point. I saved the boards that were salvagable. I wanted to create something out of them in order to maintain a piece of the history. There was nothing said about keeping the rotten boards.

  • Letter: Waldorf set an example

    To the editor,

    Bardstown is blessed in many ways — including by the many volunteers who make real differences in the lives of us all. One such inspiring volunteer was Jim Waldorf, who recently passed. He was a kind and gentle man who literally spent decades helping others. After Jim came to Bardstown to run an area distillery operation, he embraced the town and its people.

  • Letter: Freedom to differ

    To the editor,

    Newspapers should print news and opinions regardless of the partisan views of their readership. They should not have to collect the voting data and say, we can’t print that story or political cartoon because that candidate got the most votes in this community. The newspaper should be a place for all points of view — even of people whose favored candidate didn’t win the election. Newspapers can help people see more than one side of an issue, and hopefully help them think and expand their world view.
