  • 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.

  • Why not enforce turn signal law

    Several weeks ago, I asked why the turn signal law is not enforced. The answer that I got was definitely a non-answer.

    If it's a matter of "habit," then start enforcing the law so that it becomes a habit. The seat belt law is being enforced and, to me, it is of much less importance than turn signals.

    How many times have you been in traffic and had the car in front of you make an unexpected turn, unexpected because he did not indicate that he planned to turn?

  • Election coverages uncovers corruption

    One-hundred tons of thanks to the news media for its coverage of the national Presidential elections. They have showed the voters of America just how crooked the voting system in a national election is, and then the politicians have the audacity to tell us that our vote counts.

    If we could just have one national election, and no one voted for the incumbent, then all we would have to do is sit back and watch how fast things change in Washington for the people.
