Letter to the Editor: Poker in Old Pattonsburg

Dear Editor:

Remember playing poker back in the 1940s and ’50s? Poker was a popular game in this area. I always thought it was against the law, but nothing was ever done about it.

Letter to the Editor: Hometown Pride

Dear Editor:

My husband and I were born in the Gallatin area, and graduated from Jameson High School.

It is with pride that we read about the many projects a small number of people accomplish. The areas are blessed to have so many people who give of their time, money, and physical labor to help others.

Letter to the Editor: Beliefs About Adam-ondi-Ahman

Dear Editor:

In response to our previous conversation regarding the December article “So… You Think You Know Daviess County,” I offer the following clarification of the question: Why does Adam-ondi-Ahman have significance to those of the Mormon faith?

It is not our belief that Adam was buried at Adam-ondi-Ahman or that it was the Garden of Eden as stated in the article. I hope the following will be a more

Letter to the Editor: McClung and O’Daniel Family Heirlooms

Dear Darryl,

I found the website http://daviesscountyhistoricalsociety.com/ while searching for the family of our great aunt, Beatrice McClung Hanson, and found your email. She was married later in life to my great uncle John Sven Aaron Hanson. She is the daughter of Alex N. McClung and Anna O’Daniel.

We have found McClung/O’Daniel family heirlooms while going through our mother’s items. We do not want them, but would like to return

Response to the Editor: Gallatin’s Deterioration

Dear Editor:

You have read my mind. You have put it in much better words in your Dec. 10 editorial than I could have. Much of what you say could apply to the block north and the block south also. My compliments to those you mentioned who have maintained, remodeled, restored or rebuilt some of our older buildings.

For 36 years I worked at Davis Drug on the east side

Letter to the Editor: A Pit Bull South of Town

Dear Editor:

This is a letter of concern about the safety of people in our area.

On Monday evening, Nov. 22, my daughter was delivering a birthday gift for her friend’s daughter at their home on Hwy. 13 south of Gallatin. As she drove in, she observed a sign which read “Beware of Dog.” She saw a large German Shepherd and a smaller fluffy dog approach her car. When she
