Letters

  • Letter: Dangers of government

    Comments from the “military press”:
    1. Dangerous government – “The power of government is great and, therefore, exceptionally dangerous.”
    2. Priceless – “Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the government take care of him better take a closer look at the American Indian.” – Henry Ford
    3. The Second Amendment – “The beauty of the second amendment is that it will not be needed until they try and take it.” – Thomas Jefferson

  • Letter: Lebanon deserves better

    On March 13, on opinion page A6, an article entitled “Marketing Changes to Lebanon” it was stated rather than to promote Lebanon by name, the community was promoted with the phrase, “Bourbon, Coopers, and Moonshine Still.”
    I am one of eight sons born to Edna and Spencer Clark Sr..  I graduated from the former Lebanon High School with many fond memories of my school, church, and community.  However, I was completely astonished and disgusted by the article about my hometown.

  • LETTER: Community supports St. Baldrick's pre-event

    The first St. Baldrick's Music/Food Fest fundraiser in Loretto on March 9 was a huge success. Our goal was to raise $2,000, but after the final tally it was more than $5,000. Wow, what a night of fun, food and fellowship for a very worthy cause. Of course there were numerous behind the scene volunteers that deserve recognition also. I kept hearing what a great job we did, but the truth is, we were just the tools that our Lord was using. We had an angel in heaven, Renee Donahue, watching over everything we did. I think she was proud of it.

  • Letter: Republican Party shooting itself in the foot

    Dear Senator Higdon (and other Kentucky Republican Senators):

  • Letter: Protection from dictatorship

    There are no red states or blue states! Only red, white and blue states!

  • Letter: Time to protect Kentucky

    With the rise of socialist Babylon in the White House, it seems time for laws to protect Kentucky,
    1. A law making it illegal to occupy any part of Kentucky by unconstitutional U.N. actions or federal actions.
    2. A law ordering all Kentucky police officers to arrest any person, federal officer or U.N. command action troops who try to enforce unconstitutional laws to confiscate property or people within the boundaries of the state of Kentucky.

  • Letter: That’s gonna leave a mark

    It was with dismay, I took in the full reality of the headline’s forboding – “Maker's Mark cutting alcohol volume in its bourbon.”
    My first reaction was one of disbelief, hoping against hope this was a joke, a prank, an effort by some online troll to foment rebellion and insurgency inside the Commonwealth.
    Well, turns out, this was not the case – this was a reality, a reality I could hardly believe. Apparently, dropping from 90-proof to 84-proof was going to increase the marketable product by six percent.

  • Letter: Mental illness is real

    First of all I would like to say I’m very grateful to Tammy and April Lawson for having the courage to step up and tell their story of their loved one David Ray Clarkson Jr. I am truly sorry for their loss.
    My story is a lot like their story. I have a family member who is going through the same thing as David did. There seems to be no help for them out there. We don’t have facilities for the mentally challenged and they definitely need help. They don’t just need to be thrown into jail, which only makes it worse. They need to be rehabilitated.

  • Letter: Farewell to an Elder

    Mary Clyde (Wilson) Bettge, a native of Bradfordsville and well known to many in Marion County passed away recently on Dec. 12, 2012 in north Virginia. Her passion was genealogy and that’s how we met in 1996. It’s ironic that my “letter to the editor” in October of 1996 thanking the community of Lebanon for their assistance and friendliness, when I was stranded for a long weekend due to car trouble, caught Mary Clyde’s eye.
