  • Basketball players, play too hard?

    I would like to know if there are other people who wish for the days again when basketball was a non-contact sport? I played grade school and then weekend pickup games when I lived in Harrison County in the late 50’s and early 60’s. We all knew what a foulwas...even the referees.
    The way college and NBA players are allowed to push, hit, hold, trip and further abuse each other is detrimental to the game in my opinion.

    Many people know of foster care, but few really understand how the system works, the role of the foster parents and most importantly, the experience of the children and youth in care.

    More than 6,800 Kentucky children and youth are in out-of-home care. Most are  placed in temporary foster care due to parental neglect or abuse. The average age of a child in care is 10.7 years.

    This is a gripe letter. To all of us who look at someone without teeth and judge them for not getting them, shame on you and me.
    I’m guilty too. Just go to your phone and call every dentist in there and you will soon know why.

  • A WORD FROM OUR READERS...

    I was involved in a serious motor vehicle accident in September 2011. I hydroplaned, hit a guardrail and flipped my truck. I had serious injuries, multiple fractures and both of my legs were mangled. Doctors told me I was millimeters from death.

    The entire first week after the accident, the doctors contemplated amputating my right leg. That morning my EMT was Wanda Hammons. Not only did she save my life, but she figured out my right leg was actually rotated 180 degrees and bent back under me depriving it of blood.

    Cigarettes were everything to me. I got up in the morning and had a cigarette with my coffee. At night, cigarettes helped me relax before bed. If I was happy, I smoked. If I was upset, I smoked. Cigarettes were always there. They were my best friend.

    We’ve had such a mild winter that several days in January and February I bought lemonade at little kids’ lemonade stands. Already theses little 6 to 10-year-olds have more business experience than the spoiled brat child in the White House.

    Crittenden resident asks where tax money goes
     My husband and I have lived in Crittenden for over 34  years. We live in a 1 1/2 story house that was built in the late 1800’s. I love my house, but, it is by no means a mansion.
    We try to keep our home and yard clean and in good repair. We pay a municipal tax on our insurance bills for our vehicles and our home, I am told, because we live within the city limits.

  • Bus driver offers formal apology for crash

    This is addressed to the children that were on Grant County School Bus #062 on Jan. 17, 2007. It is also addressed to your families, my own loved ones and everyone else whose life was touched by the morning’s fateful accident.

    As the five year anniversary passes, I can not let this go another day. I have always been advised not to contact the victims, but my own heart compels me to do so. There were so many victims affected by the accident, including my own daughters.
