  • The action of one shouldn't affect everyone

    To the editor:

  • Proposed smoking ban is going too far

    To the editor:

    I think it’s time to stop following and decide for ourselves what’s best for us and our businesses. As long as anything is legal, how can it be banned? No matter whether you smoke or not is not the issue. Being told how you can run your business is not for any level of government to decide.

    As a consumer what’s next? Be weighed at the door and told you can’t have dessert?

    Are we free people not?

  • We should ignore some decisions

    To the editor:

    Concerning the latest California court ruling, it is common sense, nature and God’s desire that only a man and a woman marry, produce and care for children.

    It is common sense that homosexuals (not “gays”) use help available to become heterosexual as many have.

    It is common sense that public servants such as newspapers and television make known such help for homosexuals. They don’t.

  • All county citizens should be equal

    To the editor:

  • The rule of reciprocity should apply

    To the editor:

    When learning about United States politics in college, a professor once stated the decline in the integrity of our Government did so when the Rule of Reciprocity was slowly phased out of common usage. In short, the rule is about respecting people by helping them, and in return they help you or someone else. Though one could relate this to the Golden Rule or even to the movie Pay it Forward, this powerful Rule brought a certain level of decorum in our Government, as well as goodwill between citizens of our country.

  • Gun club should not have been a problem

    To the editor:

    I was greatly saddened to see the notice in The Kentucky Standard of June 13, 2008 of the withdrawal of an application by Martha and Robert Boswell Jr. for a gun club in a very rural area of Nelson County. Such a facility should be a welcome addition to the entertainment options available to families in this area. This withdrawal apparently occurred when it became clear that the Joint City-County Planning Commission would reject the application, apparently due to the emotion based and uninformed influence of neighbors regarding safety issues.

  • Thanks for help with 'Tigerpawlooza'

    To the editor:

    This year the Bardstown Primary School treaded into some unfamiliar waters. We expanded our Field Day activities to be a more community based day-long event. “Tigerpawlooza” was a huge success! We also had our first ever end of the year Red Carpet Night in which our students and staffs donned their best attire and celebrated a year of success. Neither of these events could have happened without the support of our teachers, staff, and parents. I want to thank everyone who had a hand in the success of either of these events.

  • Obama is the candidate for change

    To the editor:

    Barack Obama is something entirely new. He’s a grassroots candidate. Neither the Republican nor the Democratic establishment saw him coming. A year ago, both parties had anointed Hillary Clinton as the shoe-in Democratic nominee. And then, out of nowhere, Barack Obama.

    Obama came from the grassroots, from the streets, from poverty. He was raised by a single mother and his grandparents. He lived on food stamps for a while. He knows what it’s like to be hungry, to have no health care, to be poor.

  • NewLife Center thanks United Way

    To the editor:

    Those at the NewLife Center are gratified to announce that, once again, we have been awarded funds from the United Way of Nelson County. The United Way has been a faithful supporter of The New Life Center since its inception in 1999, and as a devoted donor has supported the families and children of Nelson County on an ongoing basis. We would like to take this opportunity to thank those at the United Way of Nelson County for their generosity and their investment in the community that means so much to all of us. It is exciting to receive such consistent funding.

  • Thanks to those who donated to Crusade
