  • Reader hopes letters reveal pettiness of writers

    To the editor:

    I am a member of St. Catherine of Alexandria Parish in New Haven. I want to thank The Kentucky Standard for its continuous publication of responses — positive and negative — to the lawsuit against Reverend Jeffrey Leger, Pastor of St. Catherine of Alexandria Parish, and the Archdiocese of Louisville, as filed by Ron Rust of Rust Funeral Home in New Haven.

  • Thanks for a great Summer Band Series

    To the editor:

  • Bethlehem team deserves praise

    Bethlehem's boys soccer team stamped itself as a st"All A" Classic State Cup title in the past three years.

    Two months ago, my best friend decided to get married. On Saturday, her wedding day quickly arrived.

    Sometimes, I don't realize just how short of a time frame two months actually is. But, within those two months, my best friend, Leslie — with the assistance of family and friends — had everything ready for her wedding day.

Through all the planning and preparation, I must say it culminated nicely Saturday.

  • New Haven can't afford a lengthy lawsuit
