  • Show support for hydro power project

    Editor:

    We are writing in reference to the headline article in the April 6 News-Democrat about the hydro electric project at Lock No. 1 on the Kentucky River. As Gary Burbank would say, “Wake up, America!” This is green power. This is very much a project we should be supporting. It would be great to capture every bit of mechanical energy possible from all our dams. We would get power and not consume any of our earth’s natural resources, with no pollution, and affect the community very little.

  • HELP A NEIGHBOR

    There’s a new reality show that airs Sunday nights on CBS that shows how many Americans are struggling through tough economic times.

    "Secret Millionaire" places successful businessmen and women in impoverished communities for a week where they will go out and volunteer to help those in need. They leave all their millions behind and have only the amount that a person on food stamps would receive for a week.

  • Family suffers the loss of two pets to traffic

    Editor:

    My 7-year-old daughter and 5-year-old son lost two cats due to people running over them within a three month frame.

    My daughter was in the driveway when the second cat got hit. She said it crawled to hide under one of our vehicles. She went over to it and moved Pumpkin, her family pet, to it’s bed on the porch.

    She watched it suffer and die within minutes. My kids were sad and crying for the second time.
