  • 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.

  • Couple supports Dr. Maxey

    We want to voice our opinion on Dr. Maxey. Dr. Maxey has been our doctor for years and he has never done anything but be a good and caring doctor.

  • PAs provide important services

    Thank you for the informative article (Aug. 26) on use of mid-level healthcare providers in our area. Both nurse practitioners and physician assistants are trained to provide preventive and basic care in a primary care setting. PAs are trained following the physician model, a team approach relationship with physicians. NPs are trained using the nursing model, a collaborative relationship with physicians.

  • In defense of Dr. Maxey

    All I have read about Dr. Maxey has been negative. Why aren’t some of his patients who do not believe all this about him standing up in his defense? Just because certain people want to destroy a good man and get his money doesn’t mean it’s true. If there weren’t dollar signs in some people’s eyes, there would not be a lawsuit. I think the saying “those who throw the first stone” should apply here. Also, might someone also be afraid of Dr. Maxey because he may not belong to the good ol’ boys club and is a better doctor than some and has morals and decency that others may not have?

  • Old hospital building should be used to help poverty-level residents

    I would be a poor Kentuckian if I did not have an opinion regarding usage of the former Saint Joseph-London Hospital. So, keeping in character, I submit the following: I recommend the vacated medical center be leased by the Laurel County government for the county’s citizens deemed below the poverty level.

  • Congress must be replaced with Americans

    Friday, Aug. 27, The Sentinel-Echo published a guest editorial from the Joplin (Mo.) Globe, subject:  “The Wisdom of Compromise,” which had to be addressed.

  • Rand Paul will honor the Constitution

    It was about four years ago when I turned on the TV news and an interview was in progress. The interviewer and company executives were discussing the outsourcing of American manufacturing companies to foreign locations. The interviewer commented that he would like to know if it was true that United States companies moved overseas because of the availability of cheap labor. One of the executives replied, “Don’t forget! Most citizens of those countries can’t afford to purchase our products. It is necessary that we ship them back to the United States for sale. When one considers the expense of shipment back to America, the cheaper foreign labor isn’t that much of an advantage. It was extreme regulations imposed by the government of the United States that caused our companies to either close down, or move to locations where they can manufacture.”
