    Enough school taxes

    A recent article had a statement by Hardin County Schools community relations director that board members were tired of having to turn to local taxpayers to fund the school district. Taxpayers are tired of it, too.

    Kentucky-Japan ties grow

    I am a University of Kentucky graduate and current JET Program English teacher based in Koori Machi, Japan.

    Recently it was my pleasure to assist the Elizabethtown delegation during their recent visit to our town. As a fellow Kentuckian, I was glad to play a small part in furthering the personal and economic ties between my home state and my new home in Japan.

    Full ownership and responsibility

    This past month I got to witness an unending comedy of errors by the GOP and the Democrats.

    First, there was the government shutdown in which President Barack Obama and the U.S. House of Representatives played a game of chicken over whether to defund or delay Obamacare.

    With the mainstream media as his personal cheerleading squad, our campaigner-in-chief played it hard with a my-way-or-the-highway approach while using government workers and our national parks as his pawns.

    Fonda the problem

    During an interview, Jane Fonda was questioned about military veterans taking issue with her playing the role of a loved first lady of a beloved president. Her response was if veterans have a problem with it, “ they need to get a life. If it tweaks the right, who cares?”

    Hardly R&R time

    As a currently serving federal civilian employee, I read the “Government Pays for Time Off” editorial of Oct. 25 with great interest. In candor, I was quite taken aback at the position advocated by The News-Enterprise editorial board. In my view, the reasoning presented in that editorial failed to adequately address the root problems currently plaguing our system of government.

    Bruno for president

    After days of fighting like cats and dogs, our U.S. Congress and President Obama have the government “running” again by agreeing to continue to spend more money than the country has, which results in additional borrowing, because none of them have the fortitude to stop their political prostitution.

    Don’t be a hero

    In defense of Karen Sizemore, I think it was very unfair of Lowe’s to fire her for pursuing a shoplifting suspect. Karen had worked for Lowe’s for 18 years and these 18 years should account for something. I have to wonder if there were other motives for Lowe’s decision to fire her. Perhaps she had build up a lot of vacation time and other benefits and Lowe’s just figured it would be better for them financially to just fire the 55-year-old employee.

    Movie not about Fonda

    This is a sincere thank you to the Historic State Theater for showing “Lee Daniels’ The Butler.”

    This movie is not about Jane Fonda or Vietnam. This movie is about how the evil of discrimination reached into the highest level of our government: and needs to be seen by all, young and old.
