Dear Editor
Knoxville Baptist youth helping to keep Falmouth clean Print E-mail

Dear Editor,

I amĀ  very thankful to Pendleton County's 109 Board for the opportunity to pick up trash along the Ed Monroe Road in Falmouth with my church youth group and parents. It gives me a lot of joy to know that I'm helping out my community while raising money for our youth mission camps and events! While doing trash pickup, found a lot of fast food containers and drink bottles/cans. On behalf of the youth at Knoxville Baptist Church, I ask that you please respect your community and do not litter!

Kelsey Lund,
Knoxville Baptist Church Youth Group

Pendleton County Youth Recreation Football helped keep our community beautiful with a litter pick up on July 28, covering five miles of Knoxville-Gardnersville Road.

Thirty-one football players, cheerleaders, their parents and coaches filled 49 bags of trash. It was an extremely positive experience, for all involved, especially for the children as the PC Youth Football program strives to help them with valuable life lessons.

Remember to go vote in November Print E-mail

Dear Editor,

In February 2011, there was what I saw on the news, an almostĀ  riot like protests at the Wisconsin state capitol. These weren't radical sub groups of society. The protesters were Wisconsin state employees. They were protesting the bill that their newly elected republican governor was pushing through to balance the states budget.

Dear Editor,

The Butler Homemakers picked up four miles of highway and we had fourteen bags of litter. That is a lot for a small side road. It was the same fast food containers, beer and pop cans, water bottles and much more. Please take your litter home and dispose of it.

Thanks,

Falmouth Wesleyan cleans up Straightshoot Print E-mail

Dear Editor,

It was a privilege for Falmouth Wesleyan Church to pick up the trash on Straightshoot Road on Saturday, July 14 as part of the county trash pickup. Fifteen of our church members gathered 20 bags of garbage and were blessed by how the rain stopped long enough for us to complete this project. We look forward to helping with this again in the future.

Plea for all democrats to get vote Print E-mail

Dear Editor,

Hello, Pendleton County, from the Democratic Woman's Club. We are back from the summer break. We hope that all of you have had a nice summer!

Now is the time to get back into the swing of things. Such as, Geoff Davis who has resigned from his position due to family health reasons. Governor Beshear has to call for a special election. We need all and I mean all democrats to get out and vote in this election to elect a democrat such as Bill Adkins, in place of Geoff Davis, as well as to vote in the November election.

Also, don't forget to re-elect Rep. Tom McKee.

Now, for those people who have forgotten, this economy got in this mess after eight years, yes, I said, eight years of former president George W. Bush and former vice-president Dick Cheney. We were at a surplus with former President Clinton, yes a surplus, before, the Bush/Cheney era. Now, I don't know about you, but when our country was at surplusm, and Bush/Cheney took over, then it seems to me that a president who comes in, cannot get us back to where we were in four years. Absolutely not! I don't care who it is. But you can take this to the bank, that if we have another four or eight years of republicans leading in the White House and this nation, we will be doomed. Now, I need all democrats to take action, rise to the occasion and take advantage of their privilege. Go vote.

Any individuals who need to sign up to vote, need to get it done ASAP. Let's help move this country forward. Thank you! Have a great week!

Sincerely,

Tress Thompson
Pendleton County Democratic Woman's Club, president
