    President lacks leadership skills

    To the impact of race in politics, I am an American. Nothing else needs to be said.

    Military pays for our freedom

    As we observe Independence Day, we celebrate the founding of this free nation.

    The privilege of freedom and security is never free and patriotism is not a sin.

    Thousands of warriors have stepped forward and died, been physically and mentally wounded abroad while protecting our nation from those who would oppress us and our freedoms and rights or fighting to liberate other nations.

    Candidate responds to news article

    After reading the June 20 article about me declining an invitation to attend a Sept. 20 NAACP event on Fort Knox planned by that organization and reading the comments by Hardin County NAACP President Marcus Ray and Democratic candidate for Hardin County sheriff, John Ward, I decided to specifically respond to some of the comments and issues pertaining to that article.

    Justice system must do more

    Reading Sunday’s paper, I just had to write about the DUI history story. Condolences to the family of the young women but this is what I would do if I were here parents. First, I would get a good lawyer; don’t get ahead of me now. Then I would sue the last two judges that let him off. Why you ask? If the judges did their jobs they wouldn’t have let a person with six DUIs have a license or get a vehicle registered in any state. How did the county clerk give him plates and yearly stickers for it?

    DUI enforcement, laws should be stern

    All of us were saddened when we read about the crash a week ago that took the life of Brianna Taylor, 17, of Elizabethtown. Our prayers go out to her family and friends.

    Another life has ended because of driving under the influence. Michael Todd Hilton, the man charged in the crime, has had a number of convictions of DUIs.

    Example of small thinking

    A recent decision to let the term of long-time Radcliff Planning Commission member John Flanagan expire without reappointment is an example of the small thinking that got us where we are and contributes to our staying here.

    Grimes will be loyal to Obama

    When Alison Grimes gave her acceptance speech on the night of this past primary election, she claimed to be her own woman and would go to the Senate to represent the people of Kentucky, not President Barack Obama. This makes a very interesting contrast to what was said at a Democratic fundraiser for her and other female Senate candidates.

    Chaired by Michelle Obama, the first lady noted how hard it had been to get Obamacare through and their goal of more gun control legislation had fallen short.
