• Letter: Thanks everyone who helped with JPE festival

    The Jones Park Elementary PTO would like to thank everyone who helped to make our Fall Festival a success. We would like to thank the merchants and individuals for the donations for the auctions and chili supper. We greatly appreciate the community and families for their overwhelming show of support. We would also like to thank Scott and Audrey Rousey and Ronnie and Cassy Elmore for conducting our auction. Our school is a better place thanks to your support.

  • Letter: Reader misses Joberta’s column

    Where is Joberta?
    In this highly charged political climate, at least there is one thing on which we can all surely agree. Joberta’s articles are eagerly anticipated and thoroughly enjoyed by your loyal Casey County News readers. Recently, however, we have been too frequently disappointed to search in vain for Joberta’s always entertaining contribution.
    Please make sure that we can depend upon a welcome visit from Joberta on a regular basis. When she is not home, we miss her.

  • Resident waiting for road repairs on Watson Chapel

    Be careful if you come on Watson Chapel Road. If you meet someone and move over, we have drop-offs. Oh, I forgot, we also have holes.
    We pay our taxes. What do we have to do for a better road? I was told twice our road would be fixed in July.
    The residents of Watson Chapel Road are still waiting.

  • Sale of alcohol advertised on local billboards

    We at Old Time Independent Baptist Church would like to let the folks in Casey County know that the sale of alcohol is being advertised on our billboards. We encourage you to call Judge Ronald Wright’s office and let him know your concerns about it.
    Like other counties, Satan is trying to slip it in without folks knowing.

  • Enjoying Rowell’s column on Cathy’s views

    I enjoyed reading Larry Rowell’s column defending Dan Cathy’s right to state his view on marriage in the Aug. 1 issue.
    This is God’s view on same sex marriage (Leviticus 18:22, “You shall not lie with mankind as with womankind: It is an abomination”).
    I know Congress passed a law saying each state has a right to decide this matter. Does anyone think Congress is smarter than God?
    Acts 5:29, “Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said we ought to obey God rather than man.”

  • Reader likes ‘to each his own’ way of life

    I once wrote a letter to the editor about the things we cannot or aren’t supposed to do. In that letter, my point didn’t come across right.
    I won’t change anyone’s way of thinking and I’m sure what I say is moot to most people. I feel the need to say this anyway.
    The amount of oblivion there is today bumfuzzles me. I guess you can say I’m oblivious to why that is.

  • Volunteers save the day at Casey Library

  • Emergency workers are to be commended

    I have recovered from a hip operation and want to let the community know about the Casey County Ambulance Service and Air Evac Life team.
    I injured my hip on May 23 and responders from the Casey County Ambulance Service came immediately. They cared for me until the Air Evac helicopter landed on our front pasture to fly me to Norton Orthopedic Hospital in Louisville.
    The four EMTs were kind, considerate and professional. They are to be commended for their service and we thank the responders and their companies.
