• Letter: Cheerleaders made big impression

    I would like to congratulate the Casey County High School cheerleaders on their success being the first squad to receive the honor of placing second runner-up in the state competition last Saturday. They worked very hard and put in a vast amount of time practicing. They did an outstanding job!

  • Letter: Appalled over man walking on charges

    In the Feb. 16 issue of The Casey County News, I read that in Campbellsville, Judge Dan Kelly granted probation with treatment to a man accused of sodomizing a 6-year-old girl.
    Can you imagine the terror, pain and humiliation this child must have endured, then to be told that she doesn’t matter as the perpetrator walks out of the court a free man? He is also ordered to leave the area, which frees him to find a new victim somewhere else. I’m appalled!

  • Letter: Government, doctors cause paranoia

    I read Mr. (Bob) Ellis’ letter to the editor in the Feb. 16 edition of this paper and agree with him totally.
    The government has been telling us what we should and shouldn’t eat, drink, or smoke for a while now. George Orwell was right, but off, in  his predication of “Big Brother” taking over in his book 1984 (a little off in years but right none the less.)

  • Letter: Tired of no excuse for high electric bills

    I was wondering if I am the only person getting such high electric bills for the last three or four months?
    The bill I recieved in December for the month of November was around $140, but the bill in January for December was about $216. Both was for 29 days. That was a $76 increase.
    Their excuse was our Christmas lights and holiday baking and cooking. Well, I did not have one light up and no Christmas tree was up either. As for the baking and cooking we spent the holidays away from home and did no cooking or baking.

  • Letter: Weapons permitted to ensure freedom

    I was recently accused of having left unanswered the letter of a supposed gun owner who wishes to change the Constitution.
    The tenor of legal opinions seems to be that if we are not satisifed with what the framers of the Constitution included, we just interpret it differently or we seek to change it by opinion.

  • Letter: What have we learned in 2,064 years?

    The Roman soldier, statesman, and greatest Roman orator, Cicero (106 BC — 43 BC) has been quoted throughout the ages. The subject was an email from my daughter that teaches in a private school in Houston, Texas. It originated with a Mr. John Barns in 2010, probably a historian from Houston also.
    Subject: What have we learned in 2064 years?

  • Letter: Forget the beef, where’s the fat?

    In answer to Larry Rowell’s “Fat’s where it’s at” (Feb. 9 issue), one thing’s for sure, it’s not in the meat.
    I have always liked pork chops, sausage and steak, as I think most do. There used to be a saying, “Where’s the beef?” Now my question is “Where’s the fat?”
    My taste buds tell me when you remove too much fat you remove too much taste. To me pork chops or steak without a few fat streaks running through the lean meat aren’t worth fixing.

  • Letter: Make the picture fit the TV screen

    I would like your readers’ thoughts on wide screen television shows. I have a certain size T.V. and I want to see a full screen.
    I’m watching a game on Fox and can’t read the score and the announcer says the black spaces on top and bottom of the screen are “a good thing.” Fox wants more money from cable companies and I want Fox to give me my picture back.

  • Letter: Legislators should give up own insurance

    Why do the Republicans and the three Democrats who voted in Congress Jan. 19 to repeal the 2010 healthcare bill that helps so many ordinary Americans refuse to give up their federal medical insurance?

  • Letter: Law regarding immigration ‘stupid’

    I read Larry Rowell’s piece in the Casey County paper (Jan. 12 “Immigration still a hot topic”).
    You said how much money was spent on school and medically on their kids. OK. How many drive without operators permits?
    I will agree that it is true how much money is spent on kids that are of this country, medically, that their family don’t even work. How many of our own kind drive up and down the road every day with no permit or insurance?
