  • Letter to the editor: Can we ignore what our forefathers fought for?

     

    Regarding the News-Herald editorial from June 13:

    I for one am dismayed that the federal government may track and retain information on who I call and email, which websites I visit or comments I make through social media. 

  • Letter to the editor: Farmer’s family and friends appreciate tractor-show turnout

    We would like to give a very special thanks for everyone who supported our fourth-annual tractor show.

  • Letter to the Editor: More Facebook pages on local schools added

    The Facebook webpage “Owenton - KY Elementary School” has received a lot of  attention from News-Herald readers and I would like to thank the paper and supporters.
    There are two additional pages I have recently created: Owenton -  KY High School” and “Owen County - KY High School.”
    These are works in progress, which will be more interesting when the pages   are visited regularly, people make comments, and share their school   photos online. Many articles and pictures from the News-Herald have been  used.

  • Letter to the editor: Youth and church grateful for chance to learn responsibility

    On behalf of Corinth Community Worship Center, we would like to say thank you for the opportunity to serve Owen County.
    Our youth group picked up 10 miles of trash that stretched from the county line on Hwy. 330 to the bridge by Duncan Hill.
    This was a learning experience for our youth in being responsible and not littering, and they also learned how important it was to work together as a team.
    We take pride in knowing that our roads are clean and that we could be a part of it.

  • Letter to the editor: Oklahoma disaster reminds us all to be prepared

    The recent events in Oklahoma have shown the spirit of the community residents.
    When people lose their home and are hurt or missing, people rush to the scene and send money or supplies to help strangers.  Watching on TV and the Internet, you see how people turn bad into good. The need for the community to be resilient is an ongoing subject throughout disasters. Planning for natural and man-made disasters is on the Internet and TV. You see plans for what items you should have ready in case of disaster and where you should go.

  • Letter to the editor: Few statesmen remain in our country today

    Recently I overheard a local gentleman advise his friend not to allow his children to “go too far to the left or too far to the right, but instead keep them in the middle.”
    That, my friends, is what has happened in our country. Not willing to offend anyone we have become lukewarm middle of the road Christians.
    Christ has a few words to say about lukewarm Christianity. “So, then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew you out of my mouth.” (Revelation 3:16)
