Opinion

  • There are two kinds of voters in the United States, the ones who have never missed voting since they were old enough to register and those who go to the polls every once in a while when the spirit or a spirited campaign moves them to vote.

    This message is aimed at the latter group. Are you registered? Depending on the number of elections that have passed since you last did your civic duty and cast a ballot, you could find yourself out of luck when you show up at your precinct polling place Nov. 4.

    The Nelson County Health Department, Nelson, Marion and Washington County Diabetes Coalition and Bardstown City Schools would like to thank everyone who made Family Health and Fitness Day a success. We had 31 booths giving parents and children the opportunity to learn about health and safety as well as interactive booths for the parent and child to complete together. When the family completed 15 or more booths, they were eligible for door prizes.

    Often, in a world plagued with economic and social woes, I am tempted to become cynical and discouraged. I recently had the honor of seeing first-hand a wonderful example of our community coming together and tackling some of these issues with grace and joy.

    Ron Rust with William R. Rust Funeral Home is incorrect on two accounts in his intrusion into the right of the Catholic Church to conduct a Catholic Burial Mass according to the norms of the Church that have been in place for centuries.

  • Those without health insurance face many uphill battles in our society. Preventative care is often unaffordable, and many major procedures are out of the question. That inevitably leads to a population that isn’t as healthy as it could be, which affects every aspect of society.

    The Nelson County Community Clinic recognizes that problem, and so do the many supporters of its recent Taste of Tuscany dinner and art auction.
