The Lincoln County Citizen Foster Care Review Board is seeking volunteers to make a difference in the lives of local foster children. Volunteers are needed to review cases of children placed in foster care because of abuse, dependency and neglect to ensure these children are placed in safe, permanent homes as quickly as possible. Volunteers are not required to reside in the county where the board meets. The Kentucky General Assembly created the Citizen Foster Care Review Board, or CFCRB, in 1982 as a way to decrease the time children spend in foster care.

Dear Editor, In response to the Lussier letter to the editor on Sept. 4, I would like to give my opinion. She said that the election is turning into a comedy of errors for the Republicans, yet there is a Democrat running for president that has no business running either. She said that McCain chose a woman with no experience. Does she know that Palin has run a state government and chose her own cabinet of officials to help her? The only cabinet that Obama knows about are the ones where the Fruit Loops and Frosted Flakes are kept.

Democratic candidate for governor Steve Henry told a group of Clark County hunters Monday that if elected, his administration will maintain Kentucky's interest in the sport. The candidate, who is seeking nomination with running mate Renee True this May, spoke briefly during an annual cookout for the Association of Wild Turkey Hunters. The former lieutenant governor is vying in a crowded Democratic primary against six other candidates. Evoking memories of hunting quail and turkey with his grandfather, Henry said his administration would work to provide those opportunities to future generations.

Give Ernie Fletcher credit for feeding the hungry. The state's big newspapers, which have never had a good thing to say about the state's new governor anyway, went into a feeding frenzy this week over the hiring of the governor's sister-in-law for an executive secretary position in the Environmental & Public Protection Cabinet. Yes, it was a tasty bit of news. State hiring freeze broken. A bit of nepotism in an administration that promised to "clean up the mess" in Frankfort.
