  • Just Ask

    I believe Interim Mayor Kenny DeVore broke the law when he appointed Larry Davis to fulfill his term on city council. Could you check on it?

    ~•~

     

    We requested a copy of the City Council minutes from June 9 – the date of Davis’ appointment – and reviewed the video taken that night.

    The minutes say Mayor DeVore “suggested the appointment of Larry Davis to the vacant City Council seat. Glenda Wathen motioned to accept the recommendation and Jim Phelps seconded the motion. All council members approved.

    LETTER: Local fall beauty

    It seems that fall draws me out to explore our local, nature escapes. There are many local opportunities.

    Recently I have enjoyed two walking trails. They are both beautiful this time of year. There is a nice trail off the picnic area at Abraham Lincoln’s Birthplace National Historic Park. This one gives a person chances to make it a short excursion or you can follow the entire trail.

    For years now I have walked this trail believing I had seen all it had to offer.

    Lincoln Days: Best in Kentucky

    On behalf of the Lincoln Days board of directors, I would like to thank everyone who participated in the 43rd annual Lincoln Days celebration.

    This year we celebrated Kentucky’s best — and we witnessed the best of Kentucky time and time again all weekend.

    We saw the best in Kentucky neighborliness when wind and rain gusted through Lincoln Square at 9:30 p.m. on Friday night and our vendors helped each other to secure their booths.

    Community, committee support for orchestra appreciated

    The word thanks is too small and insufficient to adequately express my gratitude to this community for their support of the Louisville Civic Orchestra Concert. This project started as a germ of an idea eight months ago between two friends wanting to share their love of music.

  • LETTER: Concert was a tremendous gift to the community

    Beethoven and Bach in Hodgenville. Wow.
