  • Letter to the editor: Pluses and minuses of reorganization of schools

    The recent reorganization of the middle schools in Marion County may turn out to be a good idea. It makes it possible to balance the student numbers and possibly offer more elective courses. There are probably other improvements made possible by this new arrangement. Good creative leadership here!
    The need to reassign teachers is inevitable, and even though it is upsetting, it is just part of the job and is needed to best serve the students. Hopefully, this will better prepare our students for the future.

  • Letter to the editor: Road crew does great job

    Applause! Applause! Give the Marion County road crew a big hand! They do an outstanding job of spraying road right-of-ways at the appropriate time to control weeds. They recently sprayed along Short Line Pike before broad leaf weeds like poison hemlock go to seed.

    Honeysuckle bush is invading county
    The invasion has started! Please help fight back and save our county.
    Have you heard about the worse environmental invader now coming our way – bush honeysuckle? Drive around metro areas in early spring and you will find how this bush has taken over the landscape. It is first to leaf out in spring and creates a thick shade bush up to 12 feet tall.

  • Spring View Hospital’s staff show genuine care and concern
  • Watch for motorcycles and don’t throw mowed grass on road

    Since spring has arrived, and wonderful motorcycle weather is here, I'd like to put out some reminders to help make motorcycling safe.
    Please do not go out and buy your teenager a crotch rocket (sport/racing bike) or any other kind of bike until he/she takes the Kentucky Motorcycle Rider Education Program. Without proper training, these bikes can be death machines.

  • Letter to the editor: Silent hero

    Several weeks ago, two men, lifelong friends, were found dead in a cabin in the small community of St. Joe, in Marion County. They met weekly to visit and have a meal together.
    It appears that Phillip suffered a heart attack and his friend, Joe Boy, died also with heart failure, while trying to perform CPR to save his friend.
    When I was discussing this with my son, he said, “Wow, what an honorable way to die, trying to save your friend. He’s a silent hero.”

    A more connected and competitive Kentucky
    The vast majority of today’s businesses and consumers utilize innovative 
    services like wireless and broadband — so why is Kentucky still forcing 
    companies to invest in outdated, nearly obsolete technologies?
    Senate Bill 10 would give telecom providers the freedom to allocate their 
    resources as they see fit. For most, this means investing in the 21st century 
    technologies that Kentuckians have come to rely on.
