  • LETTER: Thank you for pie auction success

    On behalf of the Nelson County Deputy Clerks’ Relay for Life team, we would like to take this opportunity to show our appreciation to everyone who attended the annual pie auction. A big thank you goes out to all the officials and bakers who provided the selection of goodies for the event and for those who could not attend, but gave a generous donation. A special thank you to Joey Hayden, our auctioneer, and Dean Watts for the use of the Civic Center.

    We are grateful that we have so many generous supporters who share the vision of ending cancer.

    To the people of Colton’s Steakhouse, Bardstown EMS and Bardstown Fire Department,

    My husband and I fell in front of Colton’s Steakhouse when getting into our vehicle after dinner a couple of weeks ago.

    We wish to thank the excellent people at Colton’s who stayed with us till the Bardstown EMTs and Fire Department arrived to provide aid. Everyone did a superb job of making sure we were OK and able to return home after our fall.

    We sure have some great people in Bardstown in our businesses and emergency services.

    Without a doubt, one of my favorite activities is driving the back roads, rain or shine, camera on the seat beside me.

    There is a “Bedouin” legend that goes “God took a handful of southerly wind, blew his breath upon it and created the horse.”

    Horses are herd animals; they crave the companionship of other horses. But all too often they are forced by humans to spend their lives alone in a field. No amount of riding or petting by humans can compensate for their forced isolation.

  • LETTER: Tasting Bash a success, community support appreciated

    We would like to thank the Nelson County community for making this year’s My New Kentucky Home Habitat for Humanity Tasting Bash an incredible success!

    We raised just over $5,500 with more than 160 in attendance. Your support helps us accomplish our goal to build new affordable homes or perform critical home repairs, changing the lives of many.

  • Letter: Brand damage will quickly fade with better decisions being made

    As a Bardstown native and recent resident, I was very impressed by the hard work, resolve and discipline demonstrated by the Bardstown City Council recently in their investigation of complex issues and the difficult choices they made. Many could have rationalized ways to avoid those choices.

    Finding our classmates will help us have a more successful alumni event on Saturday, Sept. 9, at Maywood Country Club.

    The group is available on Facebook at Nelson County Foundation. Just send us a message.

  • LETTER: Kentucky should expand foreign trade

    Kentucky has the opportunity to lead the world with foreign policy assistance through production and export of coal to China. One of North Korea’s main exports is coal, and China is their main customer. America should sanction North Korea by negotiating with China to stop buying North Korean coal and buy Kentucky coal instead.
