  • EDITORIAL: You can be part of Bread for Life and its milestone celebration

    According to Feeding America Kentucky’s Heartland, which supplies much of the food distributed at Bread for Life, 5,900 people — out of Nelson County’s population of 44,564 — don’t know where their next meal is coming from. That number includes people of all ages, races and walks of life. Kentucky is also the sixth highest state in America for senior food insecurity. In Kentucky, 10.8 percent of the elderly population was food insecure. One in 10 Kentuckians 60 years of age or older risks going hungry.

  • 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.
