  • A friend’s tribute to Celia McDonald

    It was June 1984. I was two weeks out of high school and walking into my first job interview. I had grown up in the Buffalo area with a great love for reading and writing, but all the work I had done so far in my life revolved around mowing yards, helping farmers put up hay, and assisting my Dad move heavy pianos. I had never yet held a public job. I was 17 – and nervous as a cat.

    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.

  • Festival brought out ‘the best’

    The Lincoln Days Festival was a success once again.

    The Lincoln Days Committee continued the tradition of tried-and-true events like the pioneer games, quilt show, parade and look-alike contests. There were several improvements – such as the 1,001 pieces of children’s artwork adorning the windows in businesses along Lincoln Boulevard. The contest is always fun – but this year the students and their teachers outdid themselves.

    My favorite? Lincoln as a superhero.

  • Just Ask

    In reference to your article, “Red Hill loses $38,000” in the Sept. 10 issue:

    How much did the cemetery fund pay the treasurer/bookkeeper before the City took over and what was paid to the treasurer/bookkeeper after?

    Hodgenville City Council disbanded the Red Hill Cemetery Commission in March 2008, and assumed the duties of the Commission. Former secretary James LaRue Jr., who passed away in August, was earning $200 per month at the time the original group disbanded.

    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.

  • NFL lesson: Be careful who you idolize

    Professional football is my favorite sport. I play fantasy football religiously with friends in California and keep up with league news in an up-to-the-minute fashion. My Sundays (and Thursday and Monday nights) are consumed by football. Often, I watch two games at once, one on my TV and one on my laptop.

    I say all that to impress upon you how much I care about the NFL. During the six months that the NFL is playing, I am always up to date with it. So the recent debacle about domestic violence in the league is something I’ve been very invested in.

  • LETTER: Concert was a tremendous gift to the community

    Beethoven and Bach in Hodgenville. Wow.
