  • Reverse the Medicare cuts

    I urge you to do all you can to assure Congress reverses the mandated 10.6 percent cut in Medicare payments to doctors scheduled for July 2008. Action is needed by mid-June or Medicare will begin processing payment cuts.

    The cuts in payments to doctors will devastate seniors' and all military beneficiaries' access to health care by encouraging even more doctors to stop seeing Medicare and military TriCare patients. Military beneficiaries are affected even more severely because TriCare rates are capped at Medicare levels, and in many cases are discounted below Medicare's.

  • Practice what you pray

    Gov. Steve Beshear proclaimed May 1 as "Day of Prayer in Kentucky."

    Thank you, Governor. If I may, here is a prayer for the most innocent among us:

    "Jesus, I plead your blood over my sins and the sins of my nation. God end abortion and send revival to America."

    It's a simple prayer and easy to commit to memory. More information about this prayer can be found at www.bound4life.com. Biomedical discoveries continue to help us understand that, from conception, the life inside a mother's womb is an individual life, separate yet dependent upon his or her mom.

  • Vote how you want to vote

    On Tuesday, May 20, citizens living in the city of Campbellsville will have the opportunity to go into the voting booth and express their wishes relating to whether or not restaurants in Campbellsville that qualify should be able to serve liquor by the drink.

  • Do we really want alcohol?

    I am not a writer but feel that I need to state my views on the upcoming alcohol question. I heard on television that a number of our children by the age of 12 are alcoholics and on drugs.

    Do we really want to bring more sin and corruption to our communities? Alcohol has destroyed individuals and families.

    I urge you to please vote no on the alcohol question on our ballot. If you plan to vote yes or not vote at all, please reconsider and vote against this alcohol bill.

  • Schools need our help

    Regarding "City Schools eliminate associate principal positions" ... I was disheartened to read the article, short and sweet as it was. The cost of fuel is affecting the entire country, but our schools?

    It is about time that the fuel companies take a smaller profit or give back to the communities. The very least they can do is donate money to schools and hospitals.

  • Decent, sober people should help defeat alcohol

    Considering the horrible memories and nightmares that everyone must have who have lost family members and friends to alcohol related accidents, I cannot believe anyone would believe that this community would prosper by catering to the boozers.

  • Alcohol sales just not needed

    Once again, residents of Taylor County are faced with the question of whether or not we want to allow the sale of alcohol in our community. This time, however, only city residents are able to decide the issue.

    For some reason, our state lawmakers have failed to look beyond the end of their noses and see that alcohol affects entire county populations, not just those in the city limits. County residents also work at and support businesses in the city and are affected by what happens within the city limits. The city-county relationship is not either-or, rather, it is both-and.

  • Vote no on liquor

    When I first moved here almost 12 years ago, I wondered why this place seemed different. It was so different that it irked me with an urgency to understand the mystery.

    Sure, there are less expensive houses, but they seemed to be sweet, and I asked myself, "Why?" It took me so long to decide. I kept scratching my head about it for a few months, continually wondering.

    One day it hit me, "I know what it is! Campbellsville is pretty; that's what it is. The whole place is charming. There is no ugly spot."

  • God's word speaks out against drunkenness

    I ask you to consider the effects of voting to serve alcohol in Campbellsville restaurants.

    Consider that children will begin to drink with friends. Consider that every drunkard begins with one drink. Consider the lost lives taken by drunk drivers. Consider the cost of insurance because of accidents. Consider the broken homes because of drinking. Consider the abuse to children and other family members because of drinking alcohol.

  • Mother's Day for women with domestic violence in their lives

    With Mother's Day approaching this Sunday, The Caring Place would like to ask you to keep our mothers who are in shelter in your hearts and minds.

    This Sunday when you are preparing for your family visit, whether it be to take Mom out to eat, choose the proper gift or card or just a simple phone call ... please stop for a minute and say a prayer for the thousands of women whose Mother's Day won't be spent at home but rather in a domestic violence shelter. They, too, would like to be in their homes free of violence. However, they are not afforded that luxury.
