In the February 18,2011 Court news, A realestate transfer was listed between Jane Sanders and Helen Sanders "several acres". I did not know that dead people could sell property. Jane Sanders was my greatgrand mother,she died in 1955. Helen Sanders was my cousin, she died in 2010. I think that this land transfere should be investigated. Johnny Arrington

I am wondering whether your newspaper wrote a story about the two beautiful dogs killed on Christmas day by Keith A Pate, plunging his neighbors and much of the country into shock and horrified despair. Is this a normal occurance in your community? People feel they have a right to know so they can make plans to avoid coming thru your community. The behavior of the deputy on duty that day sounds so callous and just plain wrong that it makes Scrooge seem like Santa. Have you any plans to follow up on this story and report what if any legal action is taken against the perpetrator? Sounds like this is not a very friendly or non violent person, and people just want to know how the rest of the community views this behavior and this kind of person. One dog was on the county road when it was shot and killed according to reports and some eye witnesses. These were young house dogs, family pets surely not given to excessive roaming and destruction. Is there ANY accuracy or fairness of repor

I would like your readers to know they are being seriously misinformed about the circumstances about the dogs being shot. The owner submited out of date pictures to Ch. 14. What I saw were large dogs killing, not just chasing the chickens for the third time in as many weeks. I and the dogcatcher had been trying to find these dogs for that long too. We wanted to find the owner and prevent what haappened, but could not catch them. The dogs had been roaming the countryside for who knows how long. Also, there was an investigation and the Sherriff's officer did everything he could do for the owner. The officer, who was called by me, is someone I know, but not my "buddy". I did not know which officer would respond. There was an unruly crowd gathered and he conducted himself better than most would have. The owner has changed his story several times. First he said they bolted from his garage and he went after them. Then he said a neighbor came by his house and informed him his dog may be

In response to all who have been reading and commenting on the shooting of the dogs. There is much mis-information being repeated. To start with, there were no puppies involved that I could tell. I had to deal with what appeared to me as two large dogs that were not just chasing but killling chickens in my back yard for the third time in as many weeks. The dogs owner put out of date pictures out to make me look like some kind of monster. The dogcatcher and I had been looking for these dogs or their owners to prevent what happened for weeks. The dogs had been roaming the country side for that long. The whole thing happened in my yard and not in the road or across the road. One did not fall right away and walked across the road and fell. People are making it sound as if I enjoy this kind of thing, which could not be farther from the truth. It was bad timing, but the dogs did not know this. The owner first stated he opened the garage door and the dogs escaped with him in pursuit. L

Keith Pate you should be ashamed of yourself. I have the puppy's Akc papers showing she was 4 months 13 days old. Looking for the owner? Well, I'm around the curve. Every neighbor on the road knows whose pup and dog that was. All you had to do is ask. You didn't mention the other dogs, (pets) you have killed instead you have attacked our story saying it has changed? Our story has never changed. People have written things without talking to us, that's not on us. You killed two members of our family, you have never called and said hey sorry or anything, you are a wicked and evil man. As for the strays running around, we feed them. We have found many to be lost and took the time to find there homes. We did't kill them. More birds have been killed in the road by your house by vehicles, than any dog ever killed. You just got caught.....

Let me begin, by saying Hancock County is a sportsperson paradise. There is always some form of sports recreation available for the young men, women and children. However, when I enrolled my grandson in the local youth basketball program, I did so, so he could learn the fundamentals pf the game. When I attend the games, I am disappointed to watch what appears not to be young people learning and enjoying a game, but children taught do whatever it takes to win. I could have sent him to the west end in Louisville for that. I mean if all you are there for is down and dirty street ball, then I wasted my money. My grandson, has an excellent coach, he leads by example and square dealing, he teaches the game and if they were all like that, these kids could have fun. At the last game, my grandson was fouled by a young man trying to make a shot. He was painfully elbowed in the stomach. I feel that they young man in question had been taught that by coaches as a way to get the defender off of you
