Today's Opinions

  • Letter: Thanks for getting things accomplished

    To the editor,

    Since late 2016, I have been in contact with our local officials about naming a bridge that is on the new 31E north of Bardstown.

    My requests to the ones involved in the county fall on deaf ears. So many different responses were told to me that I won’t bore you. When 2018 came, it was time to go a different route.

  • Opinon: Make the effort to cast your ballot

    By Nelda Moore

    I really thought this primary election might exceed the predicted 30 percent voter turnout, not fall short. There seemed to be plenty of momentum with all the local candidates rushing nonstop from one event to another. Although crowd size started to dwindle toward the end, I attributed that to voter fatigue. I still thought, even with light rain off and on, folks would care enough to get themselves to their polling site.

  • Editorial: Opportunities for summer learning are plentiful

    For many students, school is officially out for the summer. It would do us all some good to remember, though, that learning doesn’t stop just because our children aren’t spending hours a day sitting in classrooms. While kids definitely need time to rip and run and play and explore, we can work to make sure they’re still learning. We can help them find ways to plug in to the community. We can find activities that help them learn life skills while they play at home.

  • Editorial: New Haven River Day will channel the past, provide for the future

    Organizers of New Haven’s River Day event are hoping Saturday, June 23, will see good participation by the public.

    Part of the activity will center on the Rolling Fork River with rafts, floats and kayaks bobbing in the water harkening back to the 1970s and the storied New Haven River Raft race. Participants, mostly young adults in cutoffs and fueled by cans of adult beverages, would try to outdo one another in putting together floating contraptions that had an overall visual appearance of “Mad Max” meets “Waterworld.”

  • Letter: Let’s continue to make the Bruckheimers feel welcome

    To the editor,

    I am writing this letter in defense of Linda and Jerry Bruckheimer.

    While we absolutely need a cell tower — Bloomfield cell service downtown is horrible — Mrs. Bruckheimer opposes the current location.

    From everything I’ve read, I remember being on her side when we opposed a bypass that would have relocated Highway 55 to completely bypass the downtown.

    Mrs. Bruckheimer is also a strict historical preservationist, as you can tell by the beautiful renovations to the downtown district.

  • Letter: Thank you for making our event successful

    To the editor,

    On behalf of the board of directors of the Nelson County Community Clinic, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the many people who made our recent Dinner with Art Auction fund raiser such a success.

    A huge “thank you” to the artists who provided exceptional artwork for this event and to our decorator, Tara Filiatreau, our photographer, Jennifer Claywell Edford, and our emcee, Gary Fogle.

    Thank you to the media, W&B Broadcasting, WBRT/WOKH, WLSK, PLG TV, Channel 6 and The Kentucky Standard.

  • Opinion: Making a lasting contribution to our country

    By Senator Mitch McConnell

    The Senate is working with President Trump to secure significant accomplishments for the American people, from combating the opioid epidemic to providing the largest year-on-year increase in defense funding in 15 years. However, there’s one key issue I want to especially highlight because it can set our nation on the right path for generations to come. It’s the Senate’s successes in confirming President Trump’s highly-qualified nominees to serve as federal judges.
