  • Excellence in Teaching

    I was one of the privileged individuals to be recognized at the 22nd Annual Excellence in Teaching Ceremony at Campbellsville University on Saturday. Without a doubt May 17, 2008, will stay with me as a highlight in my teaching career.

    I have been in the "learning business" (for all of teaching is an extension of learning) in both higher education and secondary schools for 23 years. As I looked around the room on that beautiful sunny afternoon, I could see and feel the pride that each teacher (including myself) brought to your beautiful new student center.

  • Blood drive

    The blood drive Saturday, May 17 at Taylor County Elementary School was a huge success.

    The American Red Cross received 95 units of blood, exceeding the goal of 90 they had set for the school. Out of that number, 59 were first time donors. Thanks to everyone who recruited, volunteered and gave blood that day.

  • Woman of the Year

    To all who are in any way responsible for my extreme honor - Taylor County Woman of the Year - I express sincere thanks.

    To the Central Kentucky News-Journal who played such an important role, merchants who so bountifully bestowed upon me so many exciting gifts, friends who wrote letters, those who sent flowers and other gifts, friends who attended and shared my happiness at the lovely reception, Campbellsville High School and all my kids, the mayor and judge/executive for the proclamation, all the caring and kindness given me by so many.

  • Gas drive-off article lacked professionalism

    I want to let you know how disappointed I am in the lack of professionalism displayed in the article concerning drive-offs in Monday's paper. I am unclear to the motive or intended message of the article. Stating things like cameras don't capture plate numbers and police can do nothing without a plate number will do nothing to deter drive-offs.

  • I deserve a tip just like a waitress

    What are people thinking?

    Since the job availability in Campbellsville isn't the best right now, I have taken a job that I did back in high school. I am back in the delivery business.

    This is what I do not understand. When you sit down at a restaurant and you have a waiter or waitress bring your food and drinks, you wouldn't just leave without leaving them some compensation for all their hard work.

  • Lunsford can't get his facts straight

    After a recent visit to Richmond, Bruce Lunsford made a serious campaign mistake when he referred to Eastern Kentucky University as a satellite campus of the University of Kentucky. Initially, I was shocked by Lunsford's ignorance about our state's universities. But, then again, what do you expect from a guy who lives in Arizona and Chicago most of the time?

  • Trace Creek needs to play by the rules

    I would like to start this letter with a "Great Job" to all of the 7- and 8-year-old girls on all of the teams.

    Trace Creek Girls' Softball general rules were made to be broken or at least some don't have to follow them if it benefits certain others. Anyone that went to the Web site and read the rules will notice the first rule was broken.

  • Will the Senate preserve Medicare beneficiaries' access to care?

    In a few days, the United States Senate will consider legislation to preserve access to quality, affordable and timely health care services for our nation's seniors. As our Senators consider how they will vote on this important legislation, I ask them to keep in mind that patients and physicians are the central tenets of the Medicare program - one cannot function without the other. It is my sincere hope they will choose our state's seniors and disabled and not the special financial interests of the insurance industry.
