  • Letter: Youth rally was ‘amazing’

    I want to commend the people of Marion County that helped make the Heart of Kentucky Youth Rally possible. The Fiscal Court for allowing us the opportunity of having the roadblock and the folks who gave. The tourism commission for being so helpful and their support. It was all about uplifting our Lord and Savior and sharing Him with others. God blessed us with an awesome weekend with amazing Christian music and the word of the Lord.

    May God bless.

  • Letter: Cattlemen are there to help
  • Letter: Working on 2012 county fair

    Now that the 2011 fair week is behind us, the Marion County Fair Board has been diligently accessing how this year’s fair was compared to previous years and how we can improve in the future. This year our attendance was down a little from previous years and expenses have increased, but local participation in some events was up. We didn’t do as well as we have in the past, but we look forward in our planning for next year’s fair.

  • Letter: Visit supported our troops

    These are tough times for our men and women in uniform, fighting two wars overseas while families struggle at home through the recession. As a veteran myself, I know how difficult it can be to be away from your family. That's why I want to express my appreciation to Gov. Steve Beshear for visiting our troops. They need to know that we are praying for them every day, and he went over there personally to tell that. Good job, Gov. Beshear.

    Paul Powell, USAF (Ret.)

  • Letter: Controlling travel?

    The Obama Administration has a transportation plan that is to tax you based on the miles you drive.

    Before they do this, they are considering factors such as capability of your state to enforce payments, the reliability of the technology, administrative costs and user acceptance.

    The U.S. Supreme Court once ruled that U.S. Citizens have the right to travel, but they did not say how!

    Travel control is people control.

  • Letter: State tourney a local success

    Graham Memorial Park and Marion County Little League recently held the Kentucky Little League State Tournament here in Lebanon. The tournament took many hours to host and plan. On behalf of the Marion County Little League and Graham Memorial Park, we would like to express our appreciation to all the volunteers, sponsors, MCLL Board and park staff who made this event the large success it was. Everyone's hard work on this event will never go unnoticed or be forgotten.

  • Letter: Simply the best

    On the morning of Aug. 11, there was a catastrophic accident deep in the knobs at the end of Rush Branch Road. A 30" tree twisted on its base as a timber man sought to harvest it and a foot long, two-inch diameter stake was driven completely through the man's upper leg, breaking the femur.

  • Letter: Accept your gifts

  • We must respect other religions

    The great world boxer Muhammad Ali says the Muslim diversity system is nothing to fear. Mr. Ali should go to the website persecution.com and read the stories of Muslim attacks and killings of Christians around the world.
    In Pakistan, Muslims have sentenced to death Asia Bibi for violating subsection C of Pakistan's 295 blasphemy law.
    So why don't all these friendly, harmless diversity Muslims stand up for her before she is put to death. She lives in a six-by-eight foot cell since her arrest in June of 2009.

  • Letter: Nominate an everyday hero

    I’m currently taking nominees for the next installment of the Kentucky’s Everyday Heroes book series, third volume. The criteria is: A living Kentuckian who has overcome extreme personal challenges and/or has given of themselves in a noble and sacrificial way. Their lives serve as examples to inspire others to greater acts of character. The nominee would be considered “ordinary”, commonly known only to people in their communities, but will have an “extraordinary” lasting impact.
