    I believe we should start by reforming and protecting our elections. Everyone eligible to vote should be able to do so without unnecessary inconvenience, fear of being purged from voting rolls, or concern that machines that can be hacked in five or six minutes won’t count their votes correctly. And wherever possible, state and national legislative districts should be dawn by nonpartisan bodies to more fully represent the diversity of opinion and interests that is one of the greatest assets of our nation.

    As director of student services at HCPS, I am given the task of enforcing mandatory student attendance. Not always a fun job, but very rewarding when I see the pictures in the Local at the end of the year of all our perfect attendance students.  To me, there is no better student accomplishment than having the fortitude and support to make it to school every day in a given year. It is a quality that transfers well into the “real world” of employment and domestic success.

  • Letter: Stop the loitering

    When is McDonald’s going to stop all the kids from hanging around inside and outside of McDonald’s, creating trouble and making people uneasy about going in and out of McDonald’s?
    This past Friday, while waiting for my son to get off work at McDonald’s, I saw a kid minding his own business get harassed by these girls and boys standing outside to the point where he had to physically defend himself.

  • Letter: Celebrate Recovery has new meals organizer

    Celebrate Recovery has a new meals organizer
    In April 2016, about two years ago, Henry County Judge-Executive John Logan Brent called together church leaders and asked us to consider our part in addressing the opioid crisis that our county faces. Some of the ministers and lay leaders began meeting monthly for prayer.
    As we met and prayed together, ideas for ministry began to emerge. Some ministers had previously used a particular addiction recovery program in their prison ministry and recommended it to us.

  • Letters: Pension rhetoric is wrong

    Park does not care for the pension rhetoric
    The rhetoric this past week has been fascinating. The passage of Senate Bill 151 has been labeled “unethical,” developed in “secret meetings” and passed in the dead of the night without actuarial analysis or any time to read the bill. Some have even stated that attaching Senate Bill 1 to Senate Bill 151 was illegal. None of this is true.

    Mystery men swooped in and cleaned up after storm
    In this world of bad happenings, there are still good deeds that need to be recognized.

  • Letter: Grateful that a trooper stopped to help

    Grateful that a trooper stopped to help
    On March 14, I was on my way to work and my car blew a tire. My brother came to change my tire. As I watched I thought of many people who have no one to help them.
    In a stormy situation, God can come to our rescue. For me, I think, that was not only my brother, but a Kentucky State Police officer Sgt. Mitchell. Mr. Mitchell pulled up to see if I needed any help — what a blessing for him to be stationed at Campbellsburg post!
    God always has a plan and for that I am grateful.

  • Letters: Stivers says he will keep sheriff's staff if elected

    Stivers says he’ll keep sheriff’s staff, if elected
    I am proud to again announce my candidacy for the office of sheriff of Henry County.
    Because of statements made that concerned many voters during the 2014 campaign, I want the voters to be perfectly clear that the personnel under the current administration will not be out of a job if I am elected.
    It would be extremely irresponsible to fire trained personnel who have been doing a good job.
