  • Recession is already here

    My mother recently told me that she heard on the news that they were looking for a recession in the next so many months.

    I don't know about the rest of you, but personally I already found it a long time ago - what with scraping from paycheck to paycheck and outrageous bills being more than I make.

    The power companies and oil companies are clawing for what I don't have left over. It looks like most of us already had the heads up on this way before the news because we're living it.

  • Why can't we incent industry to move here?

    In response to the Jan. 7 front page article concerning the funding of the new Campbellsville industrial park, the question weighing on my mind, and I'm sure many other concerned citizens of Campbellsville, is what are the incentives for bringing industries into the existing unused spec buildings in Campbellsville and surrounding counties?

    Why put our focus on building more spec buildings when we can't even fill our existing ones?

  • Hopes CKNJ can weather the storm

    I agree with you that everything changes (Richard RoBards' column 1-14-08). It is the worst pill to swallow. Even in good times we have to face the fact that even if they last for 50 years, they end way too soon.

    I am worried about the Greek philosopher's quote that you used. Heraclitus was also the proud owner of the suggestion that he and his fellow citizens should hang themselves for banishing their leader.

    I hope that you and the Central Kentucky News-Journal can weather the storm of change without the hangman's rope.

  • Great leaders believe in more than thermselves

    I really enjoyed Rebecca Cassell's piece titled "Why Not Dream Big."

    Leaders are definitely something that this country is in need of.

    I don't know if the people who live through the times that are guided by great leaders know what they have. If I was alive during the time of Martin Luther King Jr., I think I could have recognized what a great man he was.

    I think we only judge leaders by their accomplishments after they are gone, or at least retired from their leadership position.

  • People are against smoking ban

    I would like to ask members of the City Council for a few minutes of their time to explain my views on the proposed smoking ban in Campbellsville.

    First, let me introduce myself so you can get a good understanding of which demographic I represent. My name is Matt Pendleton. I am a 33-year-old married man with three children, one of whom has asthma. I live in the county but work in the city.

  • Horne is the answer

    Whether it was attending a business function, private party, family celebration or running an errand, it seems everywhere I went over the holidays I ended up in a discussion with yet another Kentuckian who is fed up with Mitch McConnell.

    We now have a solution to the problem.

  • Bring unity to fight against anti-Americansim

    We believe our country is faced with an enemy within our borders every bit as strong as the enemies Americans battle on foreign shores everyday. On the one hand, there is a hodgepodge of vituperative anti-American groups, who see the world through a bitter prism of defeat and destruction, always ready to denigrate and denounce the greatness of our country. These groups often find support among left-leaning politicians, within our educational institutions, and from the mainstream media.

  • There is help for those in foreclosure

    In response to the Dec. 27 front-page article concerning home foreclosures, Sunset Beach Properties is trying very hard to work directly with local people and local banks to buy property before it goes into the foreclosure process.

    We can not only pay off the note but provide a little financial aid and manpower assistance to move that family as well as provide money for the immediate future. We also help in the form of not ruining one's credit.

  • Get your heart in the right place

    Jesus told me he delayed his second coming because most people's hearts ain't right. Isaiah 48:9 says "For the sake of My name, I delay My wrath, and for My praise I restrain it for you, in order not to cut you off."

  • Male chivalry: a dying breed

    Recently I was driving through a nearby community on my way to my sister's house. I stopped at a store, got out and heard a hissing noise. I had a slit on the side of my tire.

    I immediately got back in my car and pulled across the street to a tire store. By then my tire was almost flat.

    I got out of my van with my two young boys and a man came outside to ask me if I needed something. I explained to him about my tire and that I would need a replacement.
