  • Letter: Think for yourself

    With children being arrested for toy guns, I think parents should take a serious look at their educational and authority structure and its training.

    Apparently, the democratic habit of questioning authority or conventional wisdom could place your or your children in  conflict with “The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders”, fifth edition (DSM-V) to be published in 2013.

  • Letter: Superintendent pick no surprise
  • Letter: Vote Williams for Governor

    David Williams and Richie Farmer offer Republicans bold conservative leadership and an opportunity to change Frankfort from a liberal taxing administration to one of fiscal conservatism. Senator Williams, as our governor, will also turn back efforts to raise taxes  on small business.  He knows many small businesses are struggling and that raising taxes would sound a death knell.  Williams and Farmer will stand for business friendly policies.

  • Letter: Consider foster care

    May is National Foster Care Month, a time to shine the light on the foster care experience. Let's start with some figures:

    - More than 6,800 Kentucky children and youth are in out-of-home

    care, with 75 to 80 percent of those in foster care. Most are placed in temporary foster care due to parental neglect or abuse.

    - The average age of a child in care: 10.7 years.

  • Letter: Support The Caring Place

    Words cannot begin to express my gratitude for the generous support for The Caring Place shown by the communities of Lebanon, Springfield, and Bardstown. Your generous donations of money and gift certificates, volunteer support, and participation in the first annual Stick Horse-Egg and Spoon Derby was fantastic.

  • Letter: Help prevent child abuse

    Childhood is supposed to be an age of innocence, but for too many in the Commonwealth it's a time of suffering. In 2009, a report revealed that Kentucky led the nation in the number of children who die as a result of abuse and neglect. Statistics show that every minute in Kentucky, two children are victims of abuse that can leave emotional and physical scars that last a lifetime.

  • Letter: Keep our roads safe
  • Letter: Support organ donation

    As Circuit Clerk of Marion County, I have seen Marion County residents support the Kentucky Circuit Court Clerks' Organ Donor Awareness Program. April is National Donate Life Month, and it is a reminder that organ donation truly is the gift of life to a recipient in need. Every day 17 people die waiting for an organ transplant. The medical miracles that are modern transplants would not be possible without the gift of organ donation.

  • Letter: Police don't need new cars
  • Letter: Seeking information about Kentucky

    I'm Katy Smith and I'm doing a fourth grade state project. I was dying for Kentucky, and I got it! I can't wait to learn more about The Bluegrass State!
