  • 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: 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: 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!

  • Letter: Pleased with convention

    On March 25, KFEA (Kentucky Festivals and Events) was in Lebanon for a mini convention. I would like to say that the Lebanon Tourism and Chris Hamilton was great to work with. Chris was so helpful bringing our mini convention to Lebanon. He made sure all the details were taken care of.  

    He was a speaker that day and did a wonderful job. Lebanon has a great person representing them. Chris is doing a great job.   

  • Letter: KFEA enjoys local hospitality

    On Friday, March 25, the Kentucky Festivals and Events Association board and guests were hosted by the Lebanon Tourist and Convention Commission at its “Spring Meet.” The support of the tourist commission and in particular, Chris Hamilton and his assistant, Carla Wagner, in the planning and execution of this event was phenomenal.It was a tremendous factor in the great experience enjoyed by all in visiting Lebanon.
