  • FRC thanks community for support

     Thank you to all the churches, businesses and individuals that assisted with the Family Resource Center Angel Tree program. Due to your generosity many children in our community had a wonderful Christmas.

  • Appreciates those ‘walking the walk’

     I enjoyed reading the Phil Robertson controversy by Larry Rowell on Jan. 1. After reading this piece, I felt like saying, “God bless the USA,” because of the way people have spoken out about this issue. This is the way we keep our freedom of speech, by speaking out and voting.

    I’m also a believer in what the Bible says about homosexuality (Leviticus 18:22, Romans 1:26-26, Timothy 1:10, and I Corinthians 1:9).

    I like what Larry says at the close of his write-up, “Talk the talk, but walk the walk.”

  • Thanks for support to backpack program

     Thank you to all who attended the Tennessee Christmas concert on Dec. 18 and donated to the Casey County Schools Backpack Program. Your generosity will feed many hungry kids. Thank you to Dunnville Christian Church for hosting this event.

  • CCHS thanks community supporters

     Faculty and staff at the Casey County High School recently collected food, clothing, and special gifts for 65 needy children in our school. We expanded our list to include their siblings, bringing the total to 84 individuals served. Dale Hoskins helped supervise the event, as things were gathered in the CCHS library.

    This was not a school function, but a community-wide event. Most donors did not want to be recognized, but I wanted to make a public thank you for helping us serve the needs that these families faced. Thank you for all your support.

  • Share your views with legislators on the issues

    As we get ready to close out 2013, let me wish you and your family a happy New Year! 

    It’s time again for members of the Kentucky General Assembly to meet for a 60-day legislative session that is frequently called a “budget session.” During this time, my colleagues and I will work to develop a two-year budget for state government. We will also discuss other issues important to Kentuckians, including jobs, economic development, education and health care. 

  • Thankful for community support

     The first Veterans Day feast and dance in Liberty on Nov. 11 was an overwhelming success. It could not have happened without the entire community coming together to lend support.

    Our business partners made very generous donations with merchandise and money. Many individuals from Casey County gave money to help honor our veterans. The Casey County Baptist Association provided a tasty variety of home baked desserts and helped with the flow of the meal service.

  • Board should re-evaluate hiring policies

     I would like to address the front-page article from the Sept. 4 paper, “Board answers lawsuit, denies claims,” so that the people of Casey County know that these two teachers who are suing our Board of Education did not have a isolated experience. I have received the same poor treatment from our BOE and I am worried that our schools’ hiring practices will have a negative impact on our students.

  • LETTER: 7-17-13

     In response to Larry Rowell’s column on July 3, “The Fur’s Gonna Fly,” Larry, an answer to all this mud slinging for the next 16 months is the mute button.

    To shut them out, all I gotta do is push the mute button.
