  • Phil Ransdell rites a ‘wonderful sendoff’

    Editor:

    It was a beautiful autumn day ideal for a funeral and a burial in a remote countryside location.  We noted attendance was all close relatives.  Since the cemetery was located not too far from Campbellsburg where our farm is, we elected to be one of the ten vehicles in the funeral procession from Bedford.

  • Bedford city officials planning Thanksgiving meal for community

    Editor:

    Last week my husband and I were sitting at home talking about the upcoming holidays. We thought how nice it would be to have a community Thanksgiving at the community center for everyone who either could not afford dinner or was alone and had no one to spend the day with.

    On Monday I went in to work and wrote on my calendar on Tuesday, Nov. 22, “Community Thanksgiving.” I had not said anything to anyone about this.

  • Kentucky has a rich history in the arts

    While Kentucky is widely recognized for such things as fried chicken, horses and bourbon, it could be argued that our connections to the arts are just as considerable.

    Legend has it, for example, that Kentucky was the first state to see a performance of a Beethoven symphony, which was conducted in Lexington in 1817.

    Several weeks ago, meanwhile, the world marked the 100th birthday of an American legend, William “Bill” Monroe, the founder of Bluegrass music whose Ohio County home has become a shrine to many.

  • Legislator reviews KSP report on state highway safety

    While no one can accurately predict where a traffic accident might take place, information gathered by the Kentucky State Police gives us a pretty good idea of when the odds are certainly more in our favor.

    Based on its latest annual report, which was released last week, one of the safest places to be on the highway in 2010 was in a vehicle driven at dawn on a Sunday in March by a woman in her late 60s or early 70s who was making her way between Owensboro and Henderson on the Audubon Parkway.

  • Kentuckians’ sacrifices remembered

    For most of Kentucky’s history, we have found a way to go above and beyond the call of duty when it comes to protecting our country.

    During the War of 1812, for example, Kentucky suffered more casualties than all other states combined.  In the decade since Sept. 11, 2001, meanwhile, no military base has seen more deployments than Fort Campbell.

    Last week, the nation turned its attention to the Kentuckian who became the latest recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor, the highest award that anyone in the military can receive.
