  • Museum preserves history

    To the editor:

    One of the most satisfying aspects of restoring or building something is to show it to others and share their enjoyment.

    The crew that works and has worked at the old theatre on Walnut Street has had the satisfaction of doing that for you. It is a unique community project.

    They have had the pleasure of mixing with people of common interests, enriching their lives by developing something without thought of personal gain.

  • Project Linus distributes over 600 blankets to area children

    To the editor:

    I would like to express my thanks to everyone who supported Project Linus in 2009.

    With the help of cash donations and volunteers, we were able to distribute 660 blankets in the six counties covered by our local group.

    Project Linus is an organization that sees that children who are going through traumatic events have a warm, handmade blanket.

    Anyone who wants to participate in Project Linus’ local campaign should contact me at 234-1914.

  • ‘Those who look up, find a way out’

    I have a friend who loves bees.

    Last week she brought me to her secret place, a trail in a wooded area in a local park. Located on the trail is my friend’s bee tree.

    My friend comes to this secret place often. She said she goes there to talk to God, since how can you help but talk to him surrounded by all that nature?

    “Just look up at the canopy of trees!” she said as we walked.

  • Reader appreciates paper’s Museum Musings

    To the editor:

    Being a genealogist, historian, researcher and all around “facts” nut. I can’t tell you how much I enjoy your articles in “Museum Musings.”

    I buy the newspaper just to read that article.

  • State faces $900 million deficit

    Members of the Kentucky General Assembly convened the 2010 legislative session last week with a variety of issues that need attention, including the always-challenging task of compiling a two-year budget plan for the Commonwealth.

  • Donated scooter stolen

    To the editor:

    On Dec. 24, 2009, Dailey’s Body Shop/Towing Service gave away a brand new scooter in hopes of making someone’s Christmas a little brighter. The winner of the scooter, Jennifer Edwards, who has two school-age children, was ecstatic when she found out her name had been drawn.

  • State applies for federal stimulus money

    During most legislative sessions, several weeks usually pass before the first bill makes it through the House and Senate and is signed into law.

    On Thursday, however, the General Assembly wrapped up a quick week of work on legislation that promises to be one of the session’s biggest accomplishments. We needed to act fast to improve our chances of qualifying for a portion of the more than $4 billion in federal stimulus dollars being awarded on a competitive basis to the states. The state’s application is due early this week.

  • Food Pantry benefits from community’s support

    To the editor:

    Once again this community has come to the call of being good Samaritans. When I think they can not do more than they have in the past, they surprise me. This year, you have just blown me out of the water. I do not believe I can praise you enough.
