  • 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

  • Keep our children safe

    As we move into fall and our schedules become full with our kids’ homework and after-school activities, it’s always a good time to focus on their safety, too.  Much like the calls and e-mails I receive from constituents in need of the Veteran’s Crisis Hotline, I also receive a number of calls and e-mails from constituents looking for information on the Amber Alert program, as well as the best way to get information on sexual predators in the community.

    Senator Higdon is wrong

  • End of an era

    The last group of inmates have left Marion Adjustment Center.
    The Kentucky Department of Corrections data shows that on Sept. 16, 14 inmates were being housed at the private prison in St. Mary.
    As of Sept. 17, MAC was no longer listed in the state’s daily count reports (available here: http://goo.gl/gHhMz).
    I apologize for not reporting this sooner. I had the information for last week’s paper, but among the various stories we juggle, I forgot to actually type it.

  • We aren't invincible

    We're all guilty of it.
    We ignore warning labels.
    We drive short distances without our seatbelts.
    We take the batteries out of our smoke alarms because it just won't stop beeping in the middle of the night.
    We shake our heads at a car full of teenagers driving too fast and say, "They think they're invincible."
    But don't we all? Until tragedy strikes us, we all walk around feeling a little bit invincible.
    I did, too. Until Aug. 9 when flames engulfed my home.
