  • Letter: Support Terry Mills

     Each election season, there is invariably a major issue or two that that becomes so distorted by the political process that it becomes almost unrecognizable. This year, the state’s road funding is at the top of the list. Many of you have received political mailings that the proposed House budget raised the fuel tax. Nothing could be further from the truth. 

  • Letter: Vote for Carter for school board

     I would like to reach out to the voters in District 2 before the Nov. 4 election.  

    Angela Carter is an intelligent, dedicated teacher and leader who cares deeply for the education of all children and would serve our district best as a member of the school board.

    Born, raised in Kentucky
    To the people of Kentucky, I am proud to be a fifth or sixth generation Kentuckian. I'm proud to be bred, born and raised a Kentuckian. My father's family, the Perrys, have been in Stamping Ground since the 1790s. My mother's family, the Abrams, has been in Frankfort since the 1800s. I am a Kentuckian from the top of my head to the bottom of my feet. So this is how I feel about the politicians.

    Switch to McDonalds and Grimes
    Burger King recently moved their national headquarters to Canada from the United States. Senator Mitch McConnell failed again to close tax loopholes for when corporations move out of the country.

    Unite to end domestic violence
    With domestic violence awareness month approaching in October, it seems the ugliness of this abuse has reached an alarming rate on women and children of professional sports. As fans spend their income on entrance to these games and premium sports channels on television, it makes one pause. How much of their income is donated to the shelters that protect the victims of these rages, athlete or otherwise?

  • Letter to the editor: Lebanon needs more recreational opportunities

    All you fellow baby boomers will remember that Lebanon provided us with several recreational facilities when we were kids that the children growing up now don’t have.
    These venues included a movie theater, a skating rink, and a bowling alley.
    For many years, the Arista Theater was a fun place to see a movie on weekends. It was located where the new judicial center is now. Also, the drive-in movie theater on the Loretto Road was a gathering place; it is now gone.

  • Letter to the editor: A way to help needy children

    Mom was always concerned about all children's well being. She loved all children, and she couldn't understand why innocent children as young as 1 year old were being abused, molested and even killed by evil and wicked people.
    American children are suffering from a hidden epidemic of abuse and neglect. Every year, more than three million reports of child abuse are made involving more than six million children in the United States.

  • Letter to the editor: Ring the bell

    Ring the bell
    Last week’s school board meeting revealed two very different aspects of the school district. Employees of the central office delivered thorough presentations of the current environment and the prospective school year. All deserve recognition of a job well done and encouragement to keep up the good work.

  • Letter to the editor: High expectations?

    High expectations?
    A few years ago, our school district, not the current administration, decided to move the passing grade from 70 percent to 60 percent for middle and high school students. I believe this is an unsound idea for many reasons, not the least of which is that it clearly sends a message that we will accept less and still portray it as mastery. In a “nutshell” we preach high expectations and then lower them.
