    Thanks for focusing on faith experiences
    This subscriber was happy to see Suzanne Darland’s article about Easter’s Holy Week on the Wednesday’s Woman page. I still remember my Catholic upbringing and experience as an altar boy during Holy Week and other significant days celebrated in our church.

    Columnist’s view could be joke
    Star Parker’s recent column, “Limiting campaign donations puts limits on ideas,” could be published on onion.com as a joke.
    Parker is worried that limits on campaign donations will stifle the “free flow of information and expression.”

    According to Parker, “Political markets are like other markets.” Well, sure they are as long as politicians are for sale to the highest bidder.

    Tank dedicated to C.S. Spalding
    Thank you to the Boy Scouts who painted the C.S. Spalding tank in the American Legion Park. Our father would have appreciated the Eagle Scout project since he was a Scout Leader for many years.

    Wife defends husband’s record

    I am proud of my husband Jimmie Lee’s 100 percent pro-life voting record. Democrats and Republicans both agree Jimmie is one of the strongest advocates for children in the state legislature.

    Ask questions about school construction

    I appreciate the recent comments by Bill Beckerdite and Kenneth Randall addressing previous letters I have written pertaining to the Hardin County Schools Board. Finally, more people are starting to pay attention to the seeming addiction to spending taxpayer money.

    Opposes adding penny to sales tax
    Lots of folks are patting themselves on the back and are very excited about raising a half-million dollars for a basketball hall of fame. There was a fundraiser the other week for children’s cancer research. It raised about $33,000. Kind of tells where our priorities lie.

    Let’s strive to be self aware

    When did people forget how to be neighborly? At what point did a passing hello make people feel they have done their civic and social duty?

    Being a good neighbor, like being a patron at a restaurant, a moviegoer or simply an individual in public requires one fundamental base — having self awareness.

    Still time to fight for new law
    Do we live in a democracy? The dictionary defines a democracy as a form of government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised by them or by their elected agents under a free electoral system.
    The passage of HB 31 by the House was an indication of democracy at work – a case of private property rights versus corporate interests. This bill prohibits the use of eminent domain by developers of hazardous natural gas liquids pipelines.

    Sports broadcast dabbles in politics
    For the first time in several years, I decided to watch the NCAA basketball tournament on TV: Primarily, the Kentucky-Louisville game.
    I had not watched the tournament recently because I had become a little disenchanted after watching a Duke-Marquette game several years ago in which the officials practically gave the game to Duke by calling foul after foul against key Marquette players in the first half. It was an absurd game and it was evident that the NCAA had ordained that Duke was to be the winner.

    Protect reliable telephone service
    AARP is fighting to preserve reliable phone service for the elderly and other citizens who rely on landline service for emergency purposes and to stay connected to their family, friends and communities. Telephone service is a basic necessity, particularly for older adults, who are more likely than any other age group to rely on landline service to maintain social contact and preserve health and safety.
