  • Letter to the editor: Mayor calls on public for improvement ideas

    I would like to commend Debbie Sigretto for remodeling the front of her building where the clothing center and Spurgeon Law Firm are located. It looks much better and makes the town more attractive. Cassie Towles recently remodeled the front of her building at the corner of West Seminary and South Main with new windows, a front door and fresh paint.

  • Letter to the editor: Owen County is better because of adult education

    After reading the article in the paper last week, I decided I needed to write something to talk about how much the Adult Learning Center has meant to me and my family.
    A few years ago, I went to the Adult Learning Center wanting to get my GED but feeling like I probably couldn’t do it.
    When I went in there, the staff was so positive and made me feel like it was possible. To make a long story short, working with the adult-education staff, I did get my GED and I am now in college at NKU.

  • Letter to the editor: Hospice is a place of love and caring

    For the past 10 years I have been privileged to work as a community liaison physician with Hospice of the Bluegrass. I have been witness to the wonderful services they provide to our community. November is National Hospice and Palliative Care Month.
    No one likes to think about death and dying, but Hospice is a resource available in our community to provide comfort, dignity and respect to families coping with a loved onea with a serious or life-ending illness.

  • Letter to the editor: Help the needy through Operation Christmas Child

    What’s the story about the shoebox of gifts for children around the world? Operation Christmas Child, a project of international Christian relief and evangelism organization Samaritan’s Purse, uses simple gift-filled shoeboxes to let children all over the world know that they are loved and not forgotten.

  • Letter to the editor: Adkins will be a strong, pragmatic advocate for Owen County

    Owen countians face an interesting choice on the ballot this November in the race for their congressional representative. There are several pertinent facts they need to consider. First, there is no incumbent since the Republican Geoff Davis resigned so suddenly and mysteriously from his seat. Second, this race has seen a huge influx of outside influence, in the form of money from a Texas millionaire (through inheritance) and college student, John Ramsey and his Liberty For All PAC. The money went solely to support one fringe candidate in the Republican primary.

  • Letter to the editor: Party’s platform doesn’t reflect Owen County

    When making decisions as to which candidate will best serve us in political office, it is always wise to know his/her position on  important issues.

  • Letter to the editor: Former governor supports Crupper Hammons

    It was my honor and privilege to have served the citizens of this Commonwealth for some four decades; most recently as your U.S. Senator.
    I am proud to support the candidacy of Wanda Crupper Hammons for state representative in the 61st District. I have been acquainted with the Crupper family throughout my time in public service. Wanda has learned service from some good people. There are none better than Clay and Mary Crupper.

  • Letter to the editor: Wake up, pray up and get up to vote

    It was so encouraging to see the Rev. Billy Graham’s full page ad in the Wall Street Journal and USA Today this weekend. He will turn 94 on Nov. 7 and considers this election, “One of the most critical elections of his lifetime.” He encouraged all Americans to vote for candidates who support the Biblical definition of marriage between a man and a woman, protect the unborn and the sanctity of life and defend our religious freedoms.

  • Letter to the editor: Parks and Rec. says thanks for great season

    Thanks to all the children that played and participated in the baseball/softball season this past summer within the park and recreation program.
    Thanks to the parents that gave of their time to help their child have a great experience and to tall of those whom gave of their time to coach or assist a coach or team.
    Thanks to the volunteers that worked on the fields to help have them ready for play and that helped along the way to insure the kids had a safe field to play on.
