  • It’s very possible that I have dropped my last little wooden tile.

    Yes, I’m an avid Scrabble player, and it’s a game my family and I enjoy playing together, but some recent changes are just too much.

  • To the editor:

    Congratulations to the business owners of Bardstown who have done such a beautiful job of implementing the smoke-free ordinance. Their efforts mean safer workplaces for their employees.

  • To the editor:

    On Nov. 2, Nelson County voters will have the opportunity to elect a highly qualified candidate for Nelson County Sheriff. Rick McCubbin brings an impressive resume to the Sheriff’s position. His background as a patrol officer and United States Marshal, as well as his educational credentials give him unique insight for leading our Sheriff’s Department for the next four years. I hope you will join me in our support to elect Rick as our next Nelson County Sheriff.

  • Becky Kirtley Osborne has a passion for photography.

    You can tell it in how she talks, how she uses her hands to paint a scene and how she smiles when she explains a reason behind shooting a certain image. She is drawn to sunsets and flowers but others tell her she excels in taking photos of people.

    “I think it’s because I can catch a real moment,” she said.

  • In my pursuit of ducks and geese down the Ohio and Mississippi River flyways I have been privileged to hunt waterfowl along water courses still wild and untamed.

  • Sometimes controversial matters can be settled only by science — measurements or statistics that can’t be changed no matter how strong someone’s opinion is.

    Upon reading the article in The Kentucky Standard regarding the recent City Council candidate debate makes me wonder if I might be suffering from the early stages of Alzheimer’s.

    I vote no on David Floyd.

    Representation for all of the people, not just powerful special interest groups with paid lobbyists. In August of 2009, my neighbors and I met with Mr. Floyd to discuss issues of unfairness concerning the KRS 256.042 aka the KY Fence Law. We read the law to Mr. Floyd and he had already looked it up and agreed it was unfair in today’s world. He said, “Let me call my lobbyist and see what they say.”

    If you’re wanting a new Nelson County Judge Executive, please vote for Tim Hutchins Tuesday, Nov. 2.

    I have known Tim, a loyal friend for 31 years personally. Personal connections are important parts of life. During these years he has always been available any time with a listening ear and open door policy. He always listens and offers support and I know he will carry and continue this relationship with all citizens of Nelson County. Tim’s hard work and positive attitude offer a hopeful future for all citizens, our children and grandchildren.

    I have been following the election coverage this year very closely. After learning their positions, I have decided to support Jack Conway for the U.S. Senate. Dr. Paul has taken stands which will definitely be detrimental to me. I am on Medicare and cannot afford $2,000 deductibles for health care. Being on social security I do not want it privatized and turned over to the Wall Street predators who have gotten us in the mess economically that we are in now.

  • My career as a chef has been a rocky one, filled with burned dishes and ruined romantic dinners. Yet, in an attempt to save some money, I have spent the last year trying to improve my low-level culinary skills.

    It’s been an uphill battle. I seem to lack the kind of intuitive practical sense for cooking, and by that I mean I can struggle with something as simple as boiling a cup of rice.

  • I don’t know how our current cycle of national elections will turn out. I do know I feel jerked around by a lot of what I have heard and read. So many statements of disconnected, incomplete and sometimes incorrect information…..
