  • Letter: The Party of 'NO'

    The Party of "NO" 

    The Republican Party has utilized the filibuster three times more than any Senate in history in order to thwart any legislation that might help the American people... believing that voters will oust the incumbent president as long as the economy sucks.

     

    The Party of "MEAN" 

    Cheers the idea that someone without health insurance should be allowed to die.

  • Letter: Historic solution to a historic problem

    Congress has an opportunity this week to make a historic decision that would permanently change the culture of spending in Washington. Our nearly $15 trillion of accumulated debt is a threat to our nation's economic recovery, our national security and the welfare of future generations. 

    We have already succeeded in changing the debate in Washington from "How much can we spend?" to "How much can we cut?" Now, we must go even further and pass a Balanced Budget Amendment.

  • Letter: Treated differently
  • Letter: Raising awareness for adoption

    November is Adoption Awareness month. In recognition of this unique way in which to become a family white ribbons will be worn. I ask that all of you who are touched by adoption to please wear a white ribbon during the month of November.  If you see someone wearing a white ribbon, please ask him/her how adoption has affected his/her life. If you are interested in learning more about adoption, call 1-800-928-4303.

  • Letter: Providing health care at home

    More than 11 million Americans receive home delivered health care from home health providers. In their honor, I would like to join the National Association for Home Care and Hospice in celebrating November as National Home Care Month. My focus is to increase awareness in both the community and among health care professionals, to educate on the criteria and indicators for home care utilization and to express gratitude for business we have and will receive.

  • Letter: Business, service go together
  • Letter: Honoring our veterans
  • Letter: Governor has helped county

    Get out and vote on Tuesday, Nov. 8, for Gov. Steve Beshear. Please do not take this election for granted. The polls may show the governor leading but what really counts are the votes tallied on election night. 

  • Letter: County judge supports Beshear

    During the past four years as the economy has tanked, jobs have disappeared, and  everyone has had to tighten their belts, Marion County has fared far better than  many other communities.

    The assistance provided by Frankfort --  the Governors' Office, Department for  Local Government, and our legislators has been extremely beneficial to the citizens  of Marion County.

  • Postal leaders should take a pay cut

    Since I'm told that Marion County has 10 post offices counting the main post office, how does the management decide which one to close?

    Since the Bradfordsville Post Office has been picked to close because of its dwindling income, isn't there a way to solve this post office issue?

    It can't be income. The Bradfordsville income for 2011 is higher than the year of 2010.

    If the USPS needs to cut a large amount of overspending, why not stop Saturday deliveries?
