Dear Editor, After reading the front page of The Advocate-Messenger on Monday, June 25, about music coming from the Baptist church, I felt compelled to write in response. I debated responding since I do respect everyone involved. But I just had to write. I live in Lannock. When we moved here 16 years ago there was a farm behind our house. The street dead ended. It was pretty peaceful except for the railroad noise. Now the farm is Millennium Park and the street is a pass through for Argyll residents to get to the bypass or others to get to Maple Avenue.

Jessamine County Fiscal Court has been discussing possible changes to the county noise ordinance for the past couple of meetings after receiving complaints from several citizens about air cannons. At Tuesday's meeting the court heard from another group as a representative from the neighborhood surrounding Chrisman Mill Winery voiced their concerns over excessive noise in the area. Donna Sullivan presented the court with a petition signed by people living within a mile of the winery on Chrisman Mill Road.

To the editor, When did the concerns of neighbors about the 120-decibel noise level of a propane cannon become an attack on the farmers of Jessamine County? It appears that most of the support for the cannon comes from non-farmers who don't live anywhere near it. In addition, these supporters of the noise making cannon claim the item is a normal everyday agricultural tool. If this were true then a majority of farmers would have them in their possession. Let's do a farm search in the county.

A Danville couple awoke to a burglary in progress early this morning at their home on Ky. 52, Lancaster Road. About 3 a.m., an intruder or intruders broke into the home of Charles and Norma Yankey. The couple were asleep but awoke when they heard a noise and got up to see what was happening. The intruder apparently had knocked a flashlight off a bookshelf, causing the noise. The Yankeys' daughter said the intruder had cut the phone line to the residence and tried to get in the house through a basement window.

To the editor, Whoa! A skate board park in the middle of Lake Mingo? Has there been any impact study done of the effect on the quality of life in the surrounding neighborhoods and on the effect on property values? Have the opinions of the local residents been taken into account? The story is presented as a news article, but it is extremely biased in favor of skateboarders. Where is the other side of this story? The author says that since it will be in the middle of the park, the noise level won't bother the neighbors.

Dear Editor, In the response of Mr. Steve Smith's letter, yeah, there may have been a lot more deportation. But there are still good people out there. And like many have said, it doesn't matter how many times someone may get deported. Especially if they have left loved ones behind. You would understand this, too, if you have a family, and a heart. Don't knock if you don't understand the life there. For all those that may have this problem, I pray that God bless you, and put shame on the ones that turn their noise against you.

Dec. 13, 1958 CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) - The Army fired a monkey into space earlier today inside the noise cone of a missile. The chances of recovering the tiny rider alive appeared slim. George Quisenberry and Maynard Tapp led the Victory Heights Bluejays to a 32-23 win over Ravenna Friday afternoon. The winners held quarter leads of 7-6, 20-13 and 22-15. Quisenberry finished as the high scorer with 12 points. WASHINGTON (AP) - A proposed increase in wholesale natural gas rates by the Tennessee Gas Transmission Co. of Houston has been delayed until May 15 by the Federal Power Commission.

Dear Editor, This is in response to Mr. Nowlin's letter in which he states he is going to leave Danville, in part, because of the brass band festival. First of all, I would like to commend everyone who volunteers their time for this festival, including my dad and brother, John and Clay Albright. We are very lucky to have people like them who sacrifice time out of their own busy schedules for the benefit of others. This is what makes Danville such a great and unique place to live.

Dear Editor, Please tell me what has happened to my hometown? I have been gone from Danville some 36 years. I've told anyone and everyone what a great place Danville was to grow up in, go to school, and live in. What is it with people any way? Would they rather hear shootings, screaming, 90 to 100-plus decibel rock music, bombs or rockets going off in the next block? I was reminiscing about my youth in Danville. Telling my children that every day at noon the siren atop the fire station on Main Street would go off. That told all it was noon and time for lunch.

LEXINGTON -- Sometimes a home crowd can inspire a team to win with its support. For Kentucky, it was the fans who left Commonwealth Stadium Saturday like there was a fire drill in progress that provided all the inspiration the Wildcats needed. Kentucky overcame a 20-7 deficit in the final five minutes to beat Arkansas 21-20 for its first Southeastern Conference win of the year. "When the fans left, it ticked us off," said quarterback Mike Hartline, who threw two scoring passes to freshman Randall Cobb to rally the Wildcats.
