Reader is proud of community during ice storm

Dear Editor,

Community means “common unity.”

The meaning was shown greatly during the recent ice storm and power outage. Volunteers at the Washington County Chapter of the American Red Cross shelter provided at Washington County High School created a calm, warm and safe atmosphere for citizens coming in from cold and dark homes. Space will not allow me to list the many names and faces in my mind and heart of these wonderful people.

You know, as I know, who you are. Thank you! Thank you!

Reader upset with senator’s voting

To whom it may concern:

Attorney Dan Kelly voted “Yes” to increase liquor taxes.

This is taking a huge chance with my job at Heaven Hill Distilleries. I am low senority there, and my wife loses her job this year. If everyone would use a different lawyer from now on, you might feel the strain we are under. But you have a big government job for backup for now. I guess I voted for the wrong man in our district. Don’t mess with our employers.

Student seeks help with class project

Dear readers,

Hi! My name is Logan P. I am a fifth grade student at West Ridge Elementary School in Harlan, Iowa. My class is studying the geography and history of our beautiful country. I would really appreciate it if you could send me some postcards, souvenirs, or information on Kentucky. My teacher would love some car license plates for a school project, if possible. I appreciate your time. Thank you!
