• Dangerous and curvy road needs to be fixed

    To the editor:

    I am writing this letter because it’s been bothering me a lot about the young man, William Russell, who has been charged with murder of his friend, Josh Williams.

    My granddaughter went to school with these two young men and graduated with them.

  • There are instances of excessive police force

    To the editor:

  • Neighbor did have notice about violation

    To the editor:

    We would like to add some facts to the letter written by Jean Norton. We know it is difficult for some people to adjust from living in isolation to living in the close quarters of a subdivision. In the country, a person has more freedom to do as they please. In a subdivision, people have to consider the way their actions affect others. Restrictions are written for a purpose. Many people choose a subdivision with certain restrictions to protect the value of their property and to keep a pleasant look in the subdivision.

  • Local police officers were just doing their jobs

    To the editor:

    I am writing regarding J.C. Bailey and the cops. Did he steal the TV or not? Most people on probation aren’t out at 5 a.m. How many chances do you need? Why didn’t he stop when the cops told him to stop? Why did he run? So for those who feel sorry for him and his family, what about the cops’ families? The cops were just doing their job.

  • Writer shouldn't be outraged by family's lawsuit

    To the editor:

    I read the letter in The Standard Sunday, Dec. 30, 2007 titled, “We need to take responsibilities for actions.” In this letter the writer expressed not a word of how sorry he is for the fire victims and their families, then declared his outrage with the remainder of the family for filing a lawsuit in an effort to find the cause of such a huge blaze that burned a very large hole through the roof in one area.

  • Thanks for making holiday special

    To the editor:

    Colonial Health and Rehab residents would like to thank all the churches, schools and individuals who made their holidays so special. Maybe it was caroling, bringing gifts, or just stopping by to say hello. A special thank you to Steve Hayden and the staff at The Old Stables for lunch and entertainment, Marie Jones Showtime Video for the angel tree and David and Julie Mattingly for the tour of the lights. Happy New Year and God bless.

  • Thanks for pitching in local horseshoe league

    To the editor:

    I want to thank everyone who pitched horseshoes this year and hope all will come back next year and bring a friend or two. Thanks to all who helped. I want to thank those who came out for the state tournaments and the Bourbon Festival for letting us have one, too. It was a great turnout and we look forward to doing it next year. Everybody is welcome to come out to the Nelson County Fairgrounds and pitch — Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning April 29.
