Letters

  • Letter: Domestic Terrorism

    The 9/11 terrorist attack on this country was diabolical and expensive. But far, far more costly than the 3,000 American lives and three buildings lost that day was the subsequent cost … 6,735 young American kids that died on the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan (so far) and the trillion dollar-plus  that it cost to prosecute that war.   

  • Letter: The power of humanity

    Consider the quotes and the statements below:

  • Letter: Elected leaders – deliver or depart
  • Letter: Post Office anniversary event was enjoyable

    I thoroughly enjoyed the 100th anniversary of the post office building in Lebanon and wish everyone could have been there. The pictures showing the progress of the building and its growth from 1911 to 1913 were fascinating! I hope that all builders took pictures back then and still do this today!

  • Letter: Ham Days shuttle buses

    We are writing this letter in regard to the Ham Days celebration as we have attended for several years and enjoy it so much. But, this year we were surprised that the shuttle buses had been done away with. They are a great asset to helping the elderly in getting to the celebration without having to contend with the traffic.

    It is wonderful that the idea of Ham Days started in 1969.

    Keep up the good work.

    Rev. and Mrs. Ron Moroni

    The dream act opens a door

    I join social service workers, people of all faith traditions, and concerned citizens in urging real comprehensive and fair immigration reform. Members of all political parties agree that our immigration system is broken. Now is the time to fix it.

  • Letter to the Editor - Pipe Dreams II

    Recently, I attended a presentation by Williams and Boardwalk before the state natural resources and environmental committee. The program began with an overview of their dream pipeline project by three company representatives. Predictably, this consisted of how much they care about safety, the environment, and how happy landowners will be with their pipeline and their perpetual relationship with the Williams and Boardwalk empire and whoever follows them.

    Proposed U.S. strike on Syria raises major concerns
    Perhaps my age — late 80s — leads me to reflect on the past even while I am gravely concerned about the present, specifically now the proposed U.S. strike on Syria. Memory brings up the key role of Damascus in the history of religion. And as I view the President and the Secretary of State declaiming the rightness of their call to arms, memory brings up their more enlightened years. To them I write:

    Let Memory Be the Light
    For John Kerry and Barack Obama

  • Letters to the editor - More books wanted?

    More books wanted?
    The Marion County Heritage Center in Lebanon has asked for my book called "St. Francis of Assisi Beginnings" covering the 100th Anniversary of the church at St. Francis, Ky., in 1996. However, right away I sold all of the 1,000 books that I had printed and never reordered. I've had a few people over the years to call and ask for one but I didn't have enough names to reorder.
