Like many of the other readers, I attended the Casey County Apple Festival and I enjoyed it. Since the Apple Festival, I've read nearly every day, the letters Casey County residents have written to you, defending Casey County due to one person's comments about Casey County and the presence of the KKK at one of the booths. To them I must say this: I don't agree with it either but for Pete's sake, stop the whining and crying! We don't need to defend ourself from those whose ignorance shines through on a simple letter. Do as many of the Casey residents did, laugh at their ignorance, then throw it away. By writing in every day and running this topic into the ground, you're making us Casey Countians look like a bunch of whiners. We know how exceptional this county is, and what a pleasure it is to live here. For those who think otherwise, forget them! To all of Casey residents, I say this, spend less time complaining, and more time thanking those people who keep Casey County as it is, such as the Police officers who keep our streets safe, and the county that keeps it beautiful. Thank you to all the law enforcement officials, county officials, and the residents who make Casey County what it is!
