    Enough already

    Having read the last few letters complaining about the proposed move of the Hardin County government offices, it seems there are some people who think the county government is for their benefit alone.

    Knowing Judge-Executive Harry Berry, I have listened before to his reasons for making this move and how it would benefit all county residents.

    PAWS working solo

    I would like to thank everyone who has joined in fundraising for a new Hardin County animal shelter at 220 Peterson Drive. Donations large and small are helping the project become a reality.

    This is a project exclusively funded by PAWS Shelter Foundation with no financial assistance from the county.

    Low, but still out of reach

    Following the election in 2008, Republicans felt they were “blindsided” and maybe complacent in their efforts to keep the White House. But not to worry. Come 2012, after years of economic hardship, coupled with major attempts to make President Barack Obama look bad, the GOP was confident it would recapture its rightful place.

    With four years to make the case, plus learning from previous errors, the inevitable return of a Republican president would come to pass.

    Spread the fun

    Instead of saying we’re a great county because the county shares all the fun and excitement, quality of place and quality of life, why not just go ahead and say “Elizabethtown rules and the other cities in the county suck!”

    Thank a farmer today

    “If you eat you’re involved in agriculture.” For the last few years, I, as a farmer, have been told to get out and “tell your story.” Bringing wholesome, nutritious food to the nation’s tables is my story.

    In most families, we are now three generations removed from the farm. With this in mind, we need to tell these generations how their food is produced. Food is not produced at Kroger, Wal-Mart or any of the various grocery stores around the country.

    Hats off to talented artist

    Recently I enjoyed reading the front page The News-Enterprise  story about Collin Batson, Elizabethtown High School senior whose artwork decorates the Elizabethtown Alternative Center. The article mentioned that despite his color blindness, Collin’s artistic gifts have led to his acceptance into the Kentucky School of Art at Spalding University.

    Hats off to this gifted young artist and to the teachers who recognized and nurtured his artistic talents.

    What will happen to the post office?

    I do not understand why more is not being reported on the attack the United States Postal Service is under from Congress.

    To start, the 2006 Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act mandates the postal service to fully fund the cost of retiree health and pension benefits for the next 75 years.

    Keep offices on the square

    It only makes sense to me that the best and least expensive way to bring people and business into downtown Elizabethtown would be to keep all government offices on the square.

    With the recent vote against allowing bars and alcohol by the drink, I see very little likelihood of businesses being able to succeed there. If all government offices were located there, we would be able to save all of the money allotted for downtown revitalization ideas that probably won't work anyway.

    Hagel a strong choice

    Chuck Hagel was finally confirmed as President Barack Obama’s Secretary of Defense, as he should have been since Obama won the election — decisively.
