    Paying it forward

    I am writing concerning a letter that came to the editor last month about sharing kindness with strangers. Pay it forward, if you will. She received a card at a drive-thru window along with a free meal in memory of Kelli Shaw. She spoke of how it opened her eyes to sharing with others and the importance of God, family and friends.

    Supporting Boutwell

    Several people have complained about Ike Boutwell choosing not to show “Lee Daniel’s The Butler” due to Jane “Hanoi” Fonda being cast and I agree with him just on that point alone, but there’s more.

    What I find disturbing is that people would be so accepting of a traitor.

    Every baby deserves a chance

    September is National Infant Mortality Awareness Month, a campaign sponsored by the National Healthy Start Association. During this month, people are encouraged to become more aware and educated about how they can help ensure babies reach their first birthday.

  • Theater owner’s decision a hot topic

    I salute Mr. Ike Boutwell on his stand not to show a movie that has the traitor Jane Fonda as a cast member. Her actions during the Vietnam War aided and abetted the enemy while we had our armed forces fighting in theater. There is no doubt in my mind that her actions of encouraging the North Vietnamese army led to direct casualties of U.S. armed forces.

    Shut out of the parade

    I own and run Sinister Tombs Haunted House in Hardin County. We are a small, family-run haunted house and take great pride in having been in Hardin County since 2001.

    Until 2012, we had been accepted in the Heartland Festival parade in Elizabethtown every year. We were denied entry in 2012, saying we were too scary.

    Not qualified

    The racist agenda has been going on longer than before the Martin/Zimmerman story. It is sad most of those who are trying to bring the “forces” to bear are members of the black community.

    It is now being reported Charles Rangel has thrown out the rule book. In an interview, Mr. Rangel had the guts to say: “members of the Tea Party are nothing but a bunch of racist people ... who want to keep the black man down.”

    Apology too late

    I was living in a small town in southwest Virginia. My husband was stationed in Vietnam as an artillery sergeant.

    Thomas was as good as they come
    I join Ben Sheroan in his praise of Babe Thomas and his service to Hardin County. I only mention a correction to your statement that “no elected Republicans held local office in those days” to further emphasize the magnitude of Judge Thomas’ character.

    Water connects us all

    The News-Enterprise editorial board’s Aug. 22 editorial “Diving in on swimming question” focused on Elizabethtown City Council member Terry Shipp’s question about the decision to close the municipal pool: “How can a city offer a $28 million tourism-focused sports park and fail to provide a public pool?”
