• LETTER: Things you cannot put a price tag on

    Things you cannot put a price tag on ... the laughter of children ... the look of pride when a child learns to swim ... the life-saving skill and confidence that comes from a child learning to swim.
    I am an employee of Laugh-N-Learn Childcare Center. Every summer for 10 years I have had the privilege of watching the children of LaRue County learn to swim. Children, not just from our daycare, but also Kids Crew, First Friends and The Life Connection. Now it saddens me greatly to know that will be taken away (as the pool will not open this summer).

  • LETTER: Heartbroken about pool

    Heartbroken about pool
    I was heartbroken after reading the article about the mayor’s decision to not open the pool this summer.
    I am the owner of Laugh-N-Learn Childcare Center and have been taking children to the pool during the summer three days a week for more than 10 years. I have seen countless children overcome their fear of being in the water, learn to swim and improve their swimming techniques each summer. I know the pool is open only for a short time during the summer, but the children look forward to it all year long.

    Blakeman made a difference
    On behalf of the Board of Trustees of The Lincoln Museum, I would like to thank the community for their enthusiastic support of Phyllis Blakeman’s art exhibit and sale that benefited the LaRue County Speech and Debate program and the museum.
    We appreciate the efforts of Phyllis’ students (past and present) who helped with every aspect of the show. We also appreciate the outstanding LCHS speech students who shared their talents at the Sunday afternoon reception.

  • LETTERS: Thank you from ALES Academic Team

     Please let me take this opportunity to thank the many people who helped the Abraham Lincoln Elementary School Academic Team with its most successful season. It took a huge commitment on the part of many people in order for these 20 students to excel at both the district and regional level.

    First, I must thank the parents and grandparents for allowing us the practice time at school and home. Without their support and partner study, we would not have achieved.

  • LETTER: Sunrise encounter - workers should be proud

     On March 27, I had the good fortune of encountering a group of ladies and their caretakers from Sunrise Manor. This was at the Amish store near Munfordville – RS Bakery and Groceries.

  • LETTER: Session leaves disappointment for many in business community

    The 2015 session of the General Assembly is being heralded by some as a great success due to the passage of bills addressing heroin, the road fund and other issues. Without question, there is cause to acknowledge and celebrate those accomplishments.

    But there is another chapter to this session’s story for Kentucky’s business community, and it is one of disappointment because of the many pro-business bills that were left hanging in the balance when the final gavel fell.

    First, the positive results of the session that will advance Kentucky:

  • Just ask

    If you see someone throwing out garbage on the side of the road – who do you call to turn them in?

    Has anyone ever been fined $500 (per the road signs) for throwing out garbage?

    Who do you call about an excessive amount of garbage on the side of the road? (Specifically, the area on Bardstown Road at the foot of Red Hill Cemetery).
