  • Please help keep new hospital in good shape

    I am writing to express my disappointment with some observations I made at the recent new hospital open house.

  • Federal spending is the real problem

    In your editorial, you seem transfixed by Rand Paul’s comments regarding the drug problem in eastern Kentucky. You quoted him as saying it is not a “real pressing problem.” He did not deny it is a problem, but in comparison to the other problems facing Kentucky and the nation, it is indeed not pressing. If federal, state and local spending is not brought under control, there will not be funds for drug enforcement or any other of the many worthy causes.

  • The homecoming secret

    The secret is simple. Homecoming isn’t for people to come home to; it’s for people who are already here. When you look at the scheduling you realize that it’s actually a going-away party. Many colleges aren’t starting school until after homecoming week; county schools will have just recently started. In a town where the constant complaint is that there is nothing to do, the homecoming planners are providing an alternative to the normal.

  • Resident concerned bear is near Bentley Road

    Sometime after 9:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 5, and daylight Friday, Aug. 6, our much-loved pet, Wookie, lost a horrific fight for his life to something that came out of the woods. From the way he looked, I think it was a bear. He was a strong, energetic dog and very active.

  • Chelsea wedding coverage in poor taste

    Thank goodness it is all over. I don’t know about anyone else but I am sick and tired of hearing about the cost of Chelsea’s wedding. Who really cares?

  • Council should focus on bringing business to London

    Almost every time I read the newspaper there is an article about how downtown is trying to improve. Yet, the only gas station close to downtown has shut down. The South Main Shell station was important part of town. I live down the road from what is now a building that will surely rundown from no use.

  • ‘Granny’ thankful for all who helped when house burned

    On July 9, at approximately 3:30 p.m. in East Bernstadt, the home of 94-year-old Hazel Harrison and the late Herman Harrison’s home burned. The family and friends and “Granny” would like to thank the emergency response teams for keeping her safe and staying safe themselves. Herman was a pastor at Lines Creek Baptist Church years ago and Hazel was a foster mother to many here in the area. She has lost 70 years of memories.

  • Senate election is crucial to our future

    The recent attack propaganda by the liberal (or if you prefer to label it “progressive”) news media and the Democratic candidate against pro-constitutional Senate candidate Republican Rand Paul reminds students of history of the tactics employed by the primary socialist of the World War II era. His most famous quote was, “If you tell a lie often enough, people will believe it.” His name was Adolph Hitler.
