    Officers in war earned respect

    Being a Vietnam combat veteran, not an officer, I served 26 months in-country. I served 16 months in combat as a crew chief-door gunner with the 240th Assault Helicopter Company, Mad Dog Gunship Platoon, July 1969 to October 1970.

    What would WWII leaders do?
    Early in the morning on June 6, 1944, about 156,000 Allied soldiers stormed a handful of beaches along the coast of Normandy, France. Can you imagine being the first in line knowing there would be fire coming at the landing vessel as the landing vessel door opened? That you could be the first one shot?

    Speaking on behalf of clerk candidate

    I strongly support Sandy Byerly, a local resident of Hardin County, who is running for county clerk.

    Given the importance of this office to the people of this county, we need to carefully select a successor to our current Hardin County clerk.

    Wondering about JCPS findings

    I read with great interest the article in the May 22 issue of The News-Enterprise pertaining to the audit of Jefferson County Public Schools by the state auditor. Based on that article and compared to five other school districts, the auditors found JCPS ranked highest in school administration staff, support staff and instructional aides while ranking at or near the bottom in spending for instruction and teach staffing.

    Local doctor shares view on Obamacare

    The Affordable Health Care Act (Obamacare) is a law that was passed by virtue of bribes and lies. It allows the federal government to run health care just as it runs education, energy, retirement, and our financial system.

    Are the American people really willing to turn something as important and personal as our health care over to the federal bureaucrats?

    President’s actions threaten democracy

    Saturday is Flag Day and I am very proud of the flag of the United States and for what it has stood for so many years. However, like so many Americans today, I am afraid the flag that has flown over the land of the free and the home of the brave is in dire jeopardy because of the flawed actions of President Barack Obama.

    Concerned about gun violence

    Caring people of goodwill all over America need to become as passionate as Californian Richard Martinez in calling out the National Rifle Association and politicians who are afraid to buck the politically powerful gun organization. Deadly gun violence could be reduced significantly if Congress would develop a spine and pass needed gun-control laws.

    Festival: Huge task, done well

    There’s no better way to kick start the summer than with great music and barbecue. Add sunshine, warm temperatures and great music, plus a few thousand fancy motorcycles, and you have the ingredients for a perfect festival.

    That’s exactly what took place recently during the second BBQ, Blues & Bikes Festival in downtown Elizabethtown. There were fun activities for the entire family, and food for every palate: from funnel cakes, lemonade and homemade ice cream to lots of hickory-smoked pit barbecue.

    Responding to higher calling

    As Christians, we have an abundance of opportunities, but instead of pursuing our own rights, prosperity and happiness, we have a higher calling.

    It’s summarized best in Luke 10:27, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and love your neighbor as yourself.”

    Honesty and actions do matter

    In the May 8, 2014, issue of The News-Enterprise, Mr. Paul L. Whitely Sr. expressed his views that the rejection of President Obama by the majority of the citizens of the Commonwealth of Kentucky during his last presidential campaign was due to racism.
