    Rand Paul is wrong in Iraq comments

    I see where our junior senator, Rand Paul, wrote, “President Obama declared this war over and even asked the Congress to rescind its 2002 authorization for use of military force against Iraq, something I agreed with.” Apparently. Sen. Paul has been drinking too much of the Washington, D.C., version of Watch Me Run for President Kool-Aid.

    Thankful for fireworks idea

    I would like to thank Councilwoman Barbara Baker for addressing the unlimited use of fireworks in Radcliff.

    I feel for the special needs daughter of Rickey Skoogs who is distressed by these loud fireworks. No child should feel unsafe in their own home. This alone is reason enough for this limit.

    As a Vietnam veteran with post-traumatic stress disorder, I also am affected by these fireworks. Each year since 2011, I dread the three or four weeks around the Fourth of July.

    Support for judge-executive

    It doesn’t take much to feel discouraged when you listen to our national news programs. It seems that our White House has been the main source of failed policy, mismanagement, political corruption and a series of weak excuses that any thinking person would find hard to believeand it keeps on coming.

    Our own county government, led by Judge Harry Berry, is a breath of cool, fresh air.

    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?

    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.
