  • October is domestic violence awareness month

    By Delena Trent

    Executive Director, The Caring Place

    For almost 13 years, you’ve listened to me talk to your organizations and churches. You’ve read my articles published in the newspaper and you’ve donated from your hearts. For that, I am so thankful.

    Here are two letters from former clients that tell you the true stories of what they went through before escaping a life of domestic violence and emotional abuse from their partners.

  • Kentucky’s scorecard is eye opening

    No matter the subject, it seems we always want to know how we compare with others. 

    It happens on the playing field, in the boardroom and in the classroom. It also takes place among the states as they try to gain any kind of competitive edge.

  • 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.

  • 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.
