    Concerned about hectic intersection

    I have wondered for some time now why there is not a turn signal for the intersection of Ring Road and St. John Road. When the factories and school let out it is very difficult to make turns.

    Also, the Elizabethtown Sports Park traffic can be included in that when it has events. It is a very unsafe intersection. 

    Hardin County Schools purchased property in the area to build a new G.C. Burkhead School that also will increase traffic on St. John Road.

    Concerned about congested crossroad

    I have wondered for some time now why there is not a turn signal for the intersection of Ring Road and St. John Road. When factories and schools let out it is very difficult to make turns. Also, the Elizabethtown Sports Park traffic can be included in that when it has events. It is a very unsafe intersection. 

    Hardin County Schools purchased property in this area to build a new G.C. Burkhead Elementary School. That will only increase the traffic on St. John Road.

    Expressing thanks to EIS School Board

    We are hearing a lot lately from school boards who have stepped up and made a case both locally and statewide for restoring and increasing funding for schools. Many different groups make money pitches for so many causes that the temptation may be to lump these school boards in with the rest. But that is not where they should be.

    Underground hazard remains a hazard

    Now that the word “hazardous” has been eliminated from any articles about the pipeline carrying natural gas liquid byproducts, we don’t have to worry about the composition which contains propane, ethane, butane, pentane and hexane. The Bluegrass Pipeline executives also have stepped in to show how much they care about our community by offering “grants” (bribes) to endear themselves to the residents of the Bluegrass State.

    Veterans urged to remember this vote

    Veterans who vote should remember that our own United States representative, Brett Guthrie, voted for the federal budget deal that reduces the cost-of-living benefits for veteran retirees younger than 62. His vote was to reduce veteran’s cost of living.

    Harry Berry set higher standard

    The announcement of Judge-Executive Harry Berry to seek a fourth term as leader of Hardin County probably came as good news to many. His list of accomplishments is long in the time he has spent in office. But there is one subtle achievement that most won’t realize. It’s his leadership from the top down.

    Seeking to restore education funding

    As the 2014 General Assembly begins, I want to raise citizens’ awareness of a critical issue facing our legislators: new school funds to match the higher expectations for our students and our educators.
