  • Letter: Vote for experience

    To the editor,

    Take a moment and imagine yourself as an employer hiring a new employee. You have three to choose from: two with little to no experience in the field you need and one with decades of experience. You would be smart to choose the one with all the experience, knowing she or he has knowledge to get the job done the right way and knows the ins and outs of the job.

  • Letter: Brown is the logical choice

    To the editor,

    Gail Brown has been working in the Nelson County Clerk’s office for 30 years, under the excellent leadership of Phyllis Mattingly and Elaine Filiatreau. Gail Brown with her years of experience and knowledge, is the logical choice for Nelson County Clerk.

    I urge you to please vote for Gail Brown for Nelson County Clerk.

  • Letter: Three things I ask of the city school board

    To the editor,

    Caution to all on fixed incomes. The Bardstown City Schools board is preparing to raise our taxes again. They are already broadcasting the shortfall from the state, so I expect we will be asked to foot the bill. The school tax is already the highest we pay. It is about to reach the point, where I may be unable to pay and they will have to take my property.

    There are three things I ask of the school board.

  • Who tells Frankfort what we need?

    To the editor,

  • Letter: We’re fortunate to have our public servants

    To the editor,

    One year since the prior mayor was ousted I couldn’t be more satisfied with the leadership shown by Mayor Dick Heaton and the Bardstown City Council. From day one, Mayor Heaton has reached out to the Nelson County Fiscal Court and Judge-Executive Dean Watts to build together a better partnership between the two governments. They complement each other, putting the needs of the town and community first.

  • LETTER: Math disproves rhetoric

    To the editor,

    In response to the rhetorical claims in Rep. Chad McCoy’s article, I have a few math nuggets.

  • Letter: Bradley and Clark as superintendents would make us proud

    To the editor,

    It is certainly unusual that both of our local school boards are looking for new superintendents at the same time. Even more unusual in this day and time is the fact that among the finalists for both jobs, we have two young men who were born and raised in this amazing town who have the qualities, the work ethic, and the energy to compete for the top of the mountain when it comes to education. I’ve known both of these young men and their families all my life, and I can say that the time is now to make a most profound decision for our community.

  • Letter: Lessons from random acts of kindness

    To the editor,

    During our recent morning of hazardous winter weather driving conditions, my faith in the kindness and good nature of local people was somewhat restored and perhaps a lesson or two learned.

  • Letter: Thank you for investing in your community

    To the editor,

    The Nelson County Association for the Handicapped has a history of assisting Nelson County citizens with developmental disabilities. In conjunction with Communicare in 1974, the association was instrumental in the establishment of Nelson County Industries (NCI) at 900 Nutter Drive, Bardstown. From that initial program, services have been developed to support people with developmental disabilities, including residential programs.

  • Letter: Remember these points when you vote in November

    Kentucky Retirement Systems stakeholders are shocked and appalled by the actions of the General Assembly regarding public pensions. Last week, in the space of about nine hours, the majority party produced a 291-page pension bill and voted it out of the House and Senate. Senate Bill 151 awaits Gov. Matt Bevin’s signature.
