Although I am not a Danville resident, I am pleased to endorse Paul Smiley for city commissioner. I do have a vested interest in Danville. From early childhood, Danville has been the center of our economic and social life. We shop there, dine there, seek entertainment and recreational activities in Danville. In my adult life, I have traveled extensively, and Danville is one of the most beautiful and finest small cities I have seen. I would like to keep it that way. I know Paul Smiley to be a fine, well-educated Christian gentlemen.

McKenzie Applegate, who has graced the stages of both West T. Hill Community Theatre and Ragged Edge Community Theatre, can be seen on Thursday’s episode of “Bones.” The show airs at 9 p.m. on FOX. McKenzie will portray a deaf girl who is a possible murderer. She is no stranger to portraying a deaf character — she played Helen Keller in RECT’s production of “The Miracle Worker” in 2003, when she was 7 years old. McKenzie’s mom, Jill, said the young actress went through three callbacks before she got the role.

I take some pride in the fact that I, a middle-aged man rapidly nearing status as a coot, walk five miles a day. But I have met my match. Ever try to walk with Della Nevels? I did, and I'm still winded. But our walking situations are different. I walk as a hobby. Nevels walks as a pro. She is a letter carrier who often must pound the pavement in and around downtown Danville just to do her job. And while I do my walking for the purely selfish reason that I'm trying to stay in some sort of decent physical condition for a man of my advanced age, Nevels does hers not only to meet the requirements of her job, but for a much nobler reason.

Dear Editor: In response to Sunday's article on the new interpreter service, Central Kentucky Interpreter Referral, I spoke with Jennifer Paycheck, the interpreter coordinator, and she clarified that while all of the American Sign Language interpreters are in fact certified and licensed, the Spanish interpreters are not. Unfortunately, Kentucky does not currently have a certification process for Spanish interpreters other than those working in...
