  • Holmes should be honored

    I think there should be a J.B. Holmes Day in Campbellsville. There should be a big parade.

    Campbellsville should recognize the great talent we have. This needs to be done soon. Mr. Holmes is recognized around the world. His hometown should do the same thing.

  • God really does care

    Not to be preachy, but folks, God cares. That's all there is to it. Many wrong people get away with a lot against others, putting them in some pretty precarious hardships, but if those victims just turn their heads up and ask for help from God, it'll come over the time it is needed, sometimes in the most surprising ways.

    I have found that it is hard to find faith in the fact that God really cares about what goes on down here on earth, but once that faith finally shows itself in me, over time it can be just as hard if not harder to maintain it.

  • Why is gas so high?

    If the national average gas price increased by 12 cents over a two-day period because of Hurricane Ike, then why did the prices in Campbellsville increase an average of 45 cents over the four days prior to Ike's landfall?

    This really seems like price gouging to me. They hear something on TV or the radio and up go the prices. How do we go about investigating this problem?

  • Poor customer service these days

    I left a local store this morning very frustrated. I spend between $100 and $200 a week at the local establishment. In today's economy, we have to cut costs where we can and the prices at that particular establishment can't be beat.

  • Blood test could save your life

    I am writing to give readers my testimony. I participate in Jane Todd Crawford Hospital's yearly health fair. This year, I went on a Tuesday morning to have my blood drawn.

    By 7:30 the next morning, my family doctor's office called to tell me to have some more blood work done as there was an abnormality in my white blood cell count.

  • It's time for Operation Christmas Child

    It is that time again. Oh, I know, it still feels like summer, but before you know it we will be doing our Christmas shopping.

    It is also time to start Operation Christmas Child and shop for children around the world again. These gifts may be smaller, but they're precious to the children who receive them and you will be blessed in return.

  • Shame on pet owners

    This letter is for some pet owners ... Since when do you think it is all right to take baby kittens and other helpless animals and dump them on the city street or on a back road where no one can see you?

    You know they cannot find food, so you expect them to starve to death. Your neighbors do not want them foraging in their garbage looking for food and water. I have - and take care of - five beautiful animals that someone in town just discarded like a worn-out shoe. Shame on you.

  • There's help in grieving

    Each of us as individuals experiences grief and loss when someone we love dies. Learning to live without that person can be lonely.

  • Changing my mind

    I was dead set against voting for John McCain. I was prepared to vote for Bob Barr, the Libertarian candidate, even though I knew in my heart he had no chance of winning.

    I just could not vote for McCain, knowing all the things he had done that I do not agree with at all, such as his so-called campaign finance reform, which was a direct slap at the First Amendment, not to mention his support of closing the non-existent "gun show loophole." Let it be known that there is no such thing as a gun show loophole. The laws apply at gun shows the same as anywhere else.

  • Nice prediction, Brockman

    I understand that CKNJ Sports Editor Bobby Brockman is wiping the egg off his face about Taylor County High School football stand outs. After he removes the egg, maybe Brockman could clean off that mustache from all that University of Louisville Kool-Aid he is obviously buying and drinking.

    Nice prediction Bobby. Go Big Blue!
