  • Letter: Do courts violate the Constitution?

    The Fifth Amendment says many things, but in the middle it says, “... nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb.” That means you can’t be put on trial twice for the same offense.
    Now in Communist China and dictator Syria, their courts put people on trial over and over until they get the verdict they want. It’s called jury shopping!
    Why does the Kentucky court system do the same thing? I guess there is a dictator and Communist connection.

  • Letter: Animal shelter does good work

    As a founding member and current president of the Marion County Humane Society, I would like to commend and congratulate the staff and volunteers at the Marion County Animal Shelter for their excellent efforts on behalf of animals (and people) these past few years. My good friend, the late Georgia Duley (the original president), would be so proud and happy if she could see what the shelter has evolved into.

  • Letter: Appreciate your library

    I wonder if Marion County has any idea what a fine library they have, sitting right there on Main Street in Lebanon. I hadn’t been in it in years, and as I wandered around looking before the book-signing on Saturday, I marveled at what an excellent facility it had become over the years I’ve been away. I hope Marion Countians are justly proud of it.

  • Letter: Project Graduation: a success

    We would like to extend our appreciation on behalf of the 2001 Senior Class of Marion County High School and their parents for the gratuity extended by all who donated time, money and talents to Project Graduation. Putting this project together was a work of joy but the credit belongs to you because of your astounding generosity and support. Our seniors leave Marion County High School knowing they belong to a charitable community. We are grateful to the community for continuing this tradition.

  • More of the same from board of education

    By Joseph B. Stevens

    Guest Columnist

    Most people have heard the phrase: “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” This phrase has been attributed to Albert Einstein for a great number of years.
    When I think of that phrase, and watch what is happening in our school system, especially MCHS and the Board of Education, I find myself wondering if that is what we are doing now.

  • Veterans deserve more

    “We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude.”
    - Cynthia Ozick

    Memorial Day means different things to different people.
    For some, it’s a day off from work.
    For others, it’s the first official day of summer break.
    And, for many of us, it’s just another day at work.
    Far too few of us actually observe the day the way it was meant to be observed, which is to honor and remember all of the people who have died serving our country.
