  • LETTER: Community assisted with improvements at Wesley Meadows

    Community assisted with improvements at Wesley Meadows

    The people of Wesley Meadows are committed to the needs of the community.

    We have been under construction for the past year to improve our facility. Three very important ramps and a half-moon circle drive were added to the facility to allow easy access into the building. Wesley Meadows is now 100 percent handicap accessible.

  • JUST ASK: Nepotism

    I feel that one of the county offices is violating nepotism laws. How do I file a complaint?

     

    LaRue County has an Ethics Commission that investigates alleged wrong-doing by officials. Hodgenville Attorney James T. Whitlow is the chairman. Other members are Don Whelan and Peggy Hawkins.

    The committee meets after a complaint has been filed and usually, the findings are available through an open records request. (Some personal information may be redacted.)

    Whitlow said the commission has not received a recent complaint.

  • JUST ASK: What about those old planes?

    I saw and heard what appeared to be World War II airplanes flying between Buffalo and Mount Sherman last Tuesday. Any idea what is going on?

     

    Several restored World War II commemorative aircrafts were on display last week at the Bardstown-Nelson County Airport, according to The Kentucky Standard.

    It was part of the American Navion Society National Convention, an annual event where pilots throughout the country gather to showcase their historic planes.

    LaRue County Park and recreation raised more than $1,000 for the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life. The runner-up team was One Kick Wonders from Nationwide Uniform Corporation and the champions were the Pink Panthers.

  • COLUMN: Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter stakes out the movies

     I celebrated my birthday over the weekend.

  • Some things just don't necessarily follow

     As I listen to various people and ponder statements made, it seems to me that some things just don't necessarily follow from initial statements.

    Take for an example: to help you remember, set up some “memory pegs” or associated ideas. But how in the world will doubling what I am trying to remember going to help me - when remembering is my basic challenge?

    Another goofy (to me) proposal:  if it is on the Internet it much be true, accurate, real. Says who else?  Who is the monitor for accuracy?

  • COLUMN: Sawyer Brown still rocking after 31 years
