    Polling information not good for Mitch
    I am not shocked after learning of the results of the recent Lexington Herald-Leader/WKYT Bluegrass Poll. According to the poll, Alison Lundergan Grimes holds a four-point advantage over U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. The two are expected to compete for the U.S. Senate seat in November if McConnell can defeat Tea Party candidate Matt Bevin in May.
    Grimes leads the poll 46 percent to 42 percent and that margin could increase if McConnell continues to be a champion of gridlock.

    Delay immigration reform

    Did ever a nation surrender its sovereignty to another without firing a shot or protesting? The illegals are taking our children’s jobs and our bread by getting welfare benefits. The Republicans are giving in with a proposal to grant illegals legal status, but not citizenship.

    If that passes, the ACLU and Democrats immediately will sue for citizenship for them and win.

    Nonprofits must focus energy

    Catching up on my reading, I saw the piece on Via Colori from Jan. 29.  I agree the event is wonderful; however, as a nonprofit agency that assists sexual assault victims and their families, I believe it should focus efforts on maximizing fundraising. If the event is not producing significant funding for its much-needed programs, then they should explore other avenues and allow the Via Colori festival to be organized by another organization or local resident, as suggested in the article.

    Letter carriers share insight

    Congress fails to realize the United States Postal Service is the centerpiece of a $1.3 trillion U.S. mailing industry that employs 7.5 million private sector workers nationwide, 114,212 alone in Kentucky.

    Congressmen put on notice

    House Republicans met last week to plan the demise of the Republican Party under the guise of “immigration reform.” This inappropriate and destructive action on the part of GOP leadership illustrates just how far out of touch the Republican Party is with mainstream Americans.

    Consider remarks of candidates

    I read with interest The News-Enterprise articles advising the public Judge-Executive Harry Berry filed to seek another term and several days later that Mayor J.J. Duvall of Radcliff also filed the necessary documents to run for judge-executive. Two other people have since filed for that office, but my comments only pertain to these two candidates.

    Exhibit respect by restoring pay

    Throughout recorded history, civilizations that messed with the pay of their armies eventually were overthrown by that army. No one expects or advocates for that to be done in the USA.

    Veteran sees ‘direct insult’

    As someone who believes strongly in what our veterans have done to preserve this great country of ours, I feel obligated to respond to comments made by the individual who is responsible for showing the Jane Fonda movie at the Historic State Theater.
