    The human toll of hate
    Throughout history there have been preachers that have used selective Biblical verses as a weapon to vilify and persecute one minority or another, while ignoring far more consequential verses that applied to majority classes. For example, there are five verses in the Bible that are interpreted by current self righteous preachers to condemn LGBT people … while there are 49 verses that condemn adultery and divorce on pain of death, which are tacitly ignored. 

  • Letter to the editor: Love wins

    Love wins
    I have been reading the editorials with dismay these last few weeks. I am surprised of the tone and wording of so many of the letters from “Christians.” I recall reading Carrie Bridgman’s piece and thinking how fair and peaceful she came across. Then in striking contrast I read submissions from several church leaders and found it hard to get through them.

    Keep art and art teacher at SCMS
    I read with dismay that St. Charles Middle School had eliminated art classes. It might have been nice to give the public a little notice that this decision was pending, so that input from parents and grandparents would have been possible.

  • Letter to the editor: SCMS’s decision to ditch art is not a good one

    St. Charles Middle School has eliminated the position of art teacher at their school. This decision leaves a fully equipped art room empty, and the absence of a specialized art teacher to give students the creative opportunities that we as a community have taken for granted.

    Elect someone who will listen
    While our board leaves much to be desired, we certainly have added two great leaders to the ranks.

  • Letter: Marion County has more options for preschool

    With the expanded preschool program offered by MCPS for the 2015-2016 school year there are more options than ever before to build strong foundations for our children’s education in Marion County. With public school, parochial school and day care options for early childhood education there is an option to meet every family’s financial and scheduling needs.

  • Letter to the editor: Support Grimes to continue good work for Kentucky

    Support Grimes to continue good work for Kentucky
    There is an important election coming up on May 19. Please vote!
    I have been blessed to have been allowed to serve the good people of Marion County for a little over two terms as your judge/executive. In my years of government service, I have met, and served with a lot of political folks, but not a lot of them are true public servants. I can honestly say that Alison Grimes is one of those “servant leaders.” She puts the people first in everything she does.

    Hal Heiner will move Kentucky forward
    Having been involved in politics for years and having worked on many campaigns and having previously served as the Hardin County GOP Chairman for over eight years and as GOP chairman of the old Second District for four years, I can tell you that only once have I changed my mind regarding which GOP candidate I would support. I have always liked Jamie Comer and I still do, but after meeting personally and speaking with Hal Heiner on three different occasions, I have changed my support from Comer to Heiner.
