• Thank You Randy Dial

    To the Editor:

    I want to thank our Judge Executive, Randy Dial, and our County Road Crew for finally fixing a problem we have had with water just overflowing in our yard.

    After trying to get this done for several years, we were told nothing could be done except for us to put a tile in, which we did, and that only made the problem worse.

  • Thankful for the Support

    To the Editor:

    The Casey County Toys for Kids committee would like to thank the people of Casey County for their amazing support of our Christmas 2018 Toy Drive.

    We were able to provide requested toys to 472 children in 205 families. The toys could be worth up to thirty dollars per child. Parents or guardians picked up the wrapped gifts for their children so that they could give them for Christmas. The children were also given free admission to Liberty Island Christmas Lights.

  • Letter to the Editor

    To the Editor:

    On behalf of the Disabled American Veterans, Chapter 41, I would like to thank all the Casey County businesses for their generous support of our annual Christmas dinner and auction.

    Your donations were greatly appreciated and your willingness to support our county’s disabled veterans shows just what kind of people we have living and working here.

    I thank each of you for the courtesy and respect shown to me during our contact. It made me proud to be a member of such a giving and loving community.

  • Thanks from Cattlemen

    To the Editor:

    On behalf of the Casey County Cattlemen’s Association, I wish to thank the community for its overwhelming support toward this years annual Cattlemen’s Country Christmas! It was a HUGE success!

    It is both exciting and humbling to witness the donations by local businesses, private citizens, as well as the record turnout by the community to support this endeavor. Every penny raised is working hard to fulfill many needs within Casey County.

  • Black Friday premium

    Dear Editor,

    In the paper recently you advised of an extra charge of $1.00 for the Black Friday advertisements. When I received my paper with those Black Friday ads, it was the SAME ads that I get every week for the Dollar Store, Rite Aid, and Tractor Supply.

  • Letter to editor

    To the Editor:

    I read your story “Plato’s Cave and the Flat Earth.” I am new at this, but I believe I can help you get your point across, if it is possible. I can say, without a doubt, that the world is round, because I’ve been around it twice. If it wasn’t round, I wouldn’t be here today; I’d be off the edge of it someplace.

  • Grooms Family Reunion

    To the Editor:

    Thirty-eight members of the Grooms family met for three days in Liberty, Ky., for fellowship and to relive old memories, revisit old homes, schools and cemeteries, and introduce the younger generations who had never been there before, to a part of their heritage.

    Dwight and Linda Grooms provided a tour bus to take everyone around Casey County and Liberty, and narration was provided by Dwight Grooms and Carol (Grooms) Woods. Phillip and Carol (Grooms) Woods provided Saturday’s picnic and evening dinner.

  • Recommendations for copying black and white prints

    To the Editor:

    1. Print photos at a good print shop with complete printing equipment and capability including ability to enlarge the copy.

    2. Ask for glossy heavy stock paper.

    3. Ask for prints to be made on color setting – very important – much better result.

    4. Printing paper size is 8 1/2 x 11 - I recommend enlarging the clearer, more valuable photos to whatever the machine can produce close to 8 x 10 to fit standard frames and albums. (Of course copies can be trimmed to size.)

  • What’s up with the phones?

    To the Editor:

    Does anyone else in our Casey area have a problem with their phone services (Windstream) or am I just special?

    My phone went out on Sept. 30, nine days ago and it is still out.

    I’m getting: “Yeah, we have an open work order, can’t tell you when, but we will get to you.”

    Sounds like they need more employees, more efficient ones, or we need a new carrier.

    Two tin cans and a string might be better.

  • Wake up, USA!

    To the Editor:

    Where to begin?

    There is sooo much going on just here in the USA that it is unbelieveable.

    Without writing a book, let me comment on some things:

    1. Professional football players taking a kneel to the national anthem. Sure they have the right, but please don’t make them a celebrity!

    2. Legalized marijuana is spreading all over the US. Companies and places of businesses are being sued for standing on their No Drug policies when they refuse to hire an applicant.
