  • Volunteer for the home team

    Fall in southern and eastern Kentucky is a magical time. Fall foliage paints our hillsides with color. Driving through this scenery can be breathtaking.

    Unfortunately, litter spoils the views in some places. Please volunteer to solve that problem during October, which is Roadside PRIDE Month in southern and eastern Kentucky.

  • McCain will lead

    John McCain's leadership qualities are needed to steer this country through difficult economic times and threats to our national security.

    McCain can be trusted to lead us because he has been vetted. As a naval officer of 22 years and with 26 years in Congress, he has the executive experience to administer our government and accomplish our domestic and international objectives.

  • Illegal aliens add to gas crisis

    The question asked was "Should we as consumers decrease the demand for oil in order to bring the supply up and hopefully bring prices down?"

    I have a much better way to bring gas prices down. Deport the 30-plus million illegal aliens living here in America, bring our troops home and put them on the Mexican border and let them actually protect our borders.

    You get rid of 30 million people, that's 30 million people who aren't using gas or buying petroleum products. You would also cut down on other ailments that America suffers from.

  • Strong fundamentals in tough times

    On Sept. 6, 2008, John McCain said there were "tough times all over America." In recent days, he has repeatedly said, "The fundamentals of the economy are strong."

    Aren't massive job losses, soaring deficits, devaluation of the dollar, rising unemployment, bank failures and the mortgage meltdown basic "fundamentals" of the economy?

    Here's a question I would ask him: "Which is it, John? How do you have a fundamentally strong economy when the aforementioned economic indicators have all headed south?"

  • 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.
