Coal industry can be helped in the Nov. 2 election
With Election Day just around the corner, I take this opportunity to urge all of the readers of The Sentinel Echo to get out and vote. And consider also that, if you flip a switch to turn the lights on, there is a good possibility that the electricity is produced from coal. And, you probably also realize a savings on it because it is produced from coal.
Rand Paul’s campaigning inappropriate at event
On Saturday afternoon, an overwhelming spirit of community and national pride filled the streets of downtown London.
Visitor thanks London for kindness shown during Vietnam veterans’ event
My name is Ron Dyer from Crossville, Tenn. I am the founder of Vietnam Veterans Day and Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans. I had the honor of being in London this weekend for the Welcome Home event. The visit there, because of the kindness shown to me by the people of London, will stay with me forever.
Remember how tax dollars spent when voting Nov. 2
I have collected, logged and photographed buildings and documents of this county for many years now. Laurel County history is a personal passion for me and I’ve ranted privately for many years over the tearing down of old buildings, but this is just too much! The tearing down of these old homes on Broad Street for a parking lot is the most senseless act of tearing down I’ve ever seen.
Inviting candidates to answer questions
I started out challenging my opponent in the jailer’s race, Jamie Mosley, to a debate, where the general public could ask the questions and allow us to explain our plans for the Laurel County Detention Center.
Progress has cost London its history
Tara Kaprowy is to be congratulated. I realize she is a relative newcomer to London, but sometimes it takes a concerned new eye to point out to all of us just what we are losing. A 120-year-old house, still standing, and not an eyesore, is to be torn down.
London still doesn’t care about history
I have lived in London more than 50 years. I find it interesting that I am still hearing the same old songs.
Get involved in the America in Bloom process, London!
I recently attended the American in Bloom Symposium and Awards Dinner in St. Louis. Though I live in Missouri, I was there because my hometown — Charles City, Iowa — was one of the entrants in the 2010 contest.
Speaking out against historic house destruction
I read in the Sentinel that the local “powers that be” have decided to tear down what is probably the oldest and most historic house still standing in London.
Resident disappointed in plans to demolish historic home
It was with a broken heart and a great feeling of anger and disgust that I read of the demolition plans slated for the beautiful Pennington Building on Broad Street. How this downtown treasure can be considered for the wrecking ball in favor of a parking structure I cannot understand. If our city planners looked again, and looked hard enough, I’m confident they could find an alternate site to park cars.
