Hats off to Oldham County officials for coming up with a novel response to the American Civil Liberties Union. The ACLU has questioned the constitutionality of a Nativity scene on the courthouse lawn in La Grange and has asked Oldham county officials to clarify their policies on private use of the public square. The ACLU told the officials that if the display was government-sponsored it would have to come down. If it's not, the ACLU said the county would have to let other groups also put on displays on the lawn.

A box with unusual contents was found on the lawn in front of SS. Peter and Paul Catholic Church early Saturday morning, but Assistant Danville Police Chief Tony Gray said it's nothing that should alarm the community. The box was found by workers about 7 a.m. It was taped up, and Gray said a note was attached. Without going into great detail, he said the note promised there was not a bomb or anything dangerous inside the box. Gray said whoever put the box there wanted someone to open it and see the contents.

Dear Editor, As I listen to political candidates debate and I read their ads, there is this underlying theme to save the city/county money. A few years ago, The Advocate-Messenger had a very disturbing article on water loss in the Perryville area. I wonder if this is still a problem. I reported a City of Danville water and sewer department leak in the middle of my front yard in 2005 that was repaired several years earlier. It took six months before it was repaired this time.

Dear Editor, Tuesday it was reported in The Advocate-Messenger that an employee of Wal-Mart stole money from another employee's purse. The thief was supposed to be me. Well my purse was in the same area as this other person's purse. And yes, I got things (cigarettes and change for a break) from my purse, so I am sure I was taped bending down to the purse and things like that. So now that I have all that out of the way, let me say this loud and clear - I was wrongly accused and I will prove it. If Wal-Mart believes the accusations, myself as well as many other employees will be greatly disappointed.
