Letters to the editor

Appreciate Editor, The Sun: Why do we wait until our friends have left us to say how much we appreciate them for all they have done for our beloved Woodford County? What a joy and privilege it has been to have Terry and Susie Boyd and their family and Boyd Orchards providing great food and fun these past 14 years. They have supported the community in every way, whether it was to open their business for the annual Woodford County Farm Tour, for a teacher training for donations of apples and pumpkins for a good cause or to showcase at the Woodford County exhibit at the Kentucky State Fair. They have been there for us and they will be missed. We now welcome the Eckert family with open arms. The Moore family and Moore's Meats and Produce, longtime Woodford County family and friends, have provided great country ham for our biscuits for Derby parties and to take to bereaved families for many years. Their business will be missed. We will miss our good friend and Woodford County supporter J.D. Wolf, who gave of himself to serve on the Planning and Zoning Commission and many other ways over the years, including coaching in the Woodford County Little League basketball. In our prayers is Gary Jones, whose many contributions to the community made it a better place to live and have fun. We are still missing Terry and Debbie Smith and Terry's 5&10, who served the community for so many years. Lastly, we are proud that our friend Ouita Michel has opened a new restaurant. Remember to say "thank you" to someone now - don't wait. Lillie Cox Versailles Full-time mayor Editor, The Sun: I was born in Versailles in 1933. Over the years, I lived in different states but Versailles was always home. After moving back for good in 1999, changes to city were evident, but it was comforting to see so many familiar things. Fast-forward 18 years and the rate of change has accelerated. Even though I'm an old-timer, I understand things can't stand still. Instant communications through the Internet and social media, the popularity of "fake news," convoluted regulations, an ever-increasing litigious society and a poisonous political climate - just to name a few - complicate things for us all, but especially for those who govern our city. That is why I believe the time has come for Versailles to have a full-time mayor. Demands on the mayor are made 24/7. It's not a part-time job anymore. Woody Gaines Versailles
