Dear Editor
KET celebrates 45th anniversary Print E-mail

Dear Editor,

When the National Education Act of 1958 was unveiled under President Eisenhower, educational television was identified as playing an important role in providing education opportunities and access to the American people.

KET's founder O. Leonard Press, and supporters across the state worked tirelessly to bring public television to the commonwealth of Kentucky. That dream became a reality 45 years ago when KET signed on for its first broadcast on September 23, 1968.

Bluegrass Pipeline marketing in full swing Print E-mail

Dear Editor,

It’s clear from recent mailings and ads in this newspaper that the Bluegrass Pipeline marketing machine is now in full swing. Some people in our county have been asked to participate in a “town hall” telephone meeting with the pipeline developers where you don’t call them, they call you! At the same time that Williams/Boardwalk is touting their “open communication” with  landowners they are still using political campaign-style tactics to limit the flow of information to paint the project and their safety record in a positive light.

A poem written to show stance against the Pipeline Print E-mail

Dear Editor,

Last week's Outlook sported a full page add for the Bluegrass Pipe Line. I guess when money is no object such expenditures are not a problem. The ad said simply “Safe. Reliable. American.” As to safe and reliable, given their BEST efforts a leak or an explosion are only a matter of time. At which point we can kiss our environment good buy.

Johnson voices opinion on weekly column Print E-mail

Dear Editor,

I am writing to respond to the weekly column filled with hate and bigotry written by Rabbi Ben Ezra. As a proud graduate of Pendleton County High School and an individual with very strong ties to the community, it upsets me very deeply that articles such as these are published on a weekly basis in this paper. For those that are followers of faith traditions that support love and compassion, please consider my words very carefully.
