    Dawley Park

    As a parent and member of a youth sports organization in Radcliff for several years, I have seen the work that the Parks and Recreation Department has put into Dawley Park. It is a very nice family park that supports and houses local sports such as football, soccer, baseball and softball. Because of this I would like to thank the workers and staff of the Parks and Recreation Department for the job they do.

    Daycare dilemma

    On Friday, Aug. 27, I received a letter from my children’s daycare. The letter said the pastor, after praying about it, decided to close the daycare Sept. 3.

    I do not understand how the pastor could put the decision on God. He left many people without a job and many children without a place to go. My children have been attending the daycare for two and a half years and now I am given only a week’s notice to find a new caregiver.
