  • 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.

  • Thankful for Casey County Library volunteers

    Many of you may know about the recent disasters at our Casey County Public Library but many others might not.
    The air conditioning system decided to break down in the middle of one of the hottest summers we’ve ever had and parts to repair it have been difficult to find because other air conditioners everywhere were also breaking down.
    On top of it all, the storm we had Wednesday night, July 18, caused considerable damage with rainwater collapsing the ceiling in the main room of the library, flooding the area, and causing the loss of many wonderful books.

  • Stealing flags is disrespectful to veterans

    The veterans and Ladies Auxiliary are writing this letter in regards to flags being stolen from the VFW Post 5704 on Ky. 70 West. The American flag and state flag were taken on Monday, July 9.
    It is very hurtful and aggravating that someone could disrespect the veterans who have fought for the freedom we have today. Removing the flags brings a great deal of sorrow to us that someonecould do this and not appreciate what our veterans have done for them and our country.
