• Letter: Sisters disagree with president’s decision on Paris Agreement

    To the editor,

    The Sisters of Charity of Nazareth, as one of 12 congregations of women religious that are part of the Sisters of Charity Federation, share the following statement:

  • Letter: Thank you to everyone who has been there

    To the editor,

    We are writing on behalf of Cameron Williamson’s family. We wanted to have an opportunity to thank some people for being there through this tough time of losing him on May 15.

    If at all possible, we would like to thank the Bardstown Police Department, A.J. Lewis with the Nelson County Sheriff’s Office, and Detective Lynn Davis for being there for Cameron, staying on his murder case and capturing the four individuals.

  • Letter: Thank you for your hospitality

    The weekend of June 15-18 our family held a very successful family reunion in your city.

    We all have our roots in Kentucky but reside all across the country. We had other localities from which to choose, but we are so thankful that we chose Bardstown as our destination. The courtesy, friendliness and cleanliness, of your city and its citizens was amazing and welcoming.

  • Letter: Public pensions are a critical issue

    To the editor,

  • Letter: Thank you for community support
  • Letter: We need to get things together where we live

    To the editor,

    Looking at the community after the City Council debacle, we have not accomplished anything new. I hear people say, “How did this happen?” From where I sit, this is a very divided community. The fight between the city and county is a situation where neither organization wants to admit that they both need to work with each other. The money that is needed to operate the city and county keeps rising. It seems that they both have a champagne taste on a beer pocketbook.

  • Letter: Citizens Police Academy is eye-opening

    To the editor,

    The first Citizens Police Academy had its graduation ceremony recently at the Nelson County Sheriff’s Office.

    It was a seven-week course that gave us citizens a look at how the Sheriff’s Office operates on a daily basis as well as how the justice system works here in Nelson County.

  • Letter: Kindness of strangers is much appreciated

    couple who attended the 4 p.m. Mass at St. Thomas Church Saturday evening May 6. There was a bad hail (hell) storm right after Mass.

    I’m ashamed that I don’t know your names, but I’m the one who got stuck in the ditch. She tried to keep me dry with her umbrella, and he crawled under my car and chained it to his tractor and pulled my “baby” out of the ditch.

    I made it home fine, and believe it or not, the car seems to have suffered no damage. You two people are true lifesavers, for both me and the car.

  • LETTER: Thanks for your kind gesture

    On Thursday, May 4, a young couple checking out in front of me at Save-a-Lot grocery paid for my groceries. I did not realize this until they had already left the store. I looked for them in the parking lot in order to thank them, but did not see them. I am hoping that they see this in the paper and know that I appreciated their kind gesture and have “payed it forward.”
    Thank you again,
    Glenna Jorgensen

  • LETTER: A big thank you from Relay for Life 

    I (Paula Simpson- Chairperson of Relay For Life) would like to say thank you to our community for all the support that was shown at Relay For Life of Nelson County this year. With a change of venue, date and times along with other events going on, I was not sure how it would turn out, but we had a beautiful day and a great turnout from the community.
     I sincerely thank everyone who came and supported us and the survivors. Thanks to those who donated money, time, talent, merchandise and for caring about the people who matter to them and others.
