  • LETTER: Looking for photos of Ovesen Heights

     My father was pastor of Ovesen Heights Baptist Church from about 1972 to 1976.

    I am looking for photos of all the churches where he pastored. I recall being in the 25-member youth choir with Beulah Davenport leading. My mother played the piano.

    I have been a minister of music and youth since 1979 and am still going strong with a youth group of 22.

    If you have photos of the church you are willing to share, please send them or contact me at jimmyjj333@gmail.com.

  • LETTER: Small, small world

    I read with interest in your March 6 paper the article about the Ragland trip to the Holy Land.

    Having grown up in the Maxine community, I know the Raglands well.

    My wife and I visited Israel in March 2012. At our first lunch stop in the iddle of nowhere northeast of Tel Aviv, I mentioned to one of our tour group that I was originally from Kentucky. A lady from another tour group casually walking by heard the conversation and said, “Oh, really. What part of Kentucky?” 

  • LETTER: Special District bill should remain in original form

     I applaud the efforts of State Auditor Adam Edelen for addressing the issue of special district accountability in Kentucky. A requirement for citizens to have confidence in government and the services it provides is to have an open, transparent and accountable system. The content of HB 1 ensures this goal is reached. However, potential changes in the language may stall or kill the effort. We cannot let this happen.

  • LETTER: The ham was great

    The LaRue County Boy Scouts Troop #151 would like to thank Cindy Cruse and Save-A-Lot for their donation of ham for our Eagle Scout Dinner.

  • LETTER: Searching for the Demumbrums

     Searching for the Demumbrums

    I am looking for information on the Demumbrum family of Nelson/LaRue Counties. My grandfather, Tom Shields, served multiple terms as Nelson County Sheriff and was shot near Stiles by Lawrence Demumbrum Jr. on or about Dec. 26, 1960.

    Mr. Demumbrum Jr. was born on July 21, 1928, and died Oct. 20, 1965, possibly in an automobile accident. 

    Mr. Demumbrum Sr. died July 22, 1976, in Nelson County and I have been told he was a teacher at Buffalo High School.

  • LETTER: Don't ignore headache pain

     Don’t ignore headache pain

    Don’t let headache pain get ignored.

    On Feb. 5, I had severe headache pain and didn’t go to work. My head was killing me.

    About 12:30 p.m., I was at Dad and Mom’s house and started to lay down on the couch and my right leg gave away with me.
