    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.

    Time for leadership

    Today we have a disaster in the making with Obamacare, which was forced upon America completely along party lines. Before being passed by Democrats, you may recall Nancy Pelosi saying Obamacare had to be passed so we would know what was in it. What a terrible joke for America. Now everyone knows it was ill conceived and is harming our weak economy.

    Supporting Sizemore

    Lowe’s, I am disappointed in you.

    Karen Sizemore, an employee of 18 years, should not have been terminated. Reprimanded or suspended, maybe, but not fired.

    Loyalty counts

    Karen Sizemore (“Woman fired after chasing shoplifter,” Oct. 11) helped me a number of times in the tool department over the last year or so and not only was sweet as she could be, but extremely helpful. She took as much time as I needed to find the right tool at the right price.

    KHSAA shakeup

    This week the Kentucky High School Athletic Association issued a new policy statement that following high school athletic events  officials are to leave the area immediately and  schools are strongly discouraged from allowing players to shake hands after the game. If a school chooses to allow players to shake, then the school is responsible for anything that might happen. This policy was issued as a response to a few incidents of uncivil, unsportsmanlike behavior.

    Stop childish behavior

    Since Bill Bennett was elected to the Elizaabethtown City Council, Councilman Marty Fulkerson and two-time council race loser Arnold Myers have formed a tag team with one goal in mind: attack Bennett and attempt to discredit him publicly.

    What if ...

    I have been listening to the circus that is the debate over the government shutdown, and see how the Associated Press and other mainstream media rush to blame the House of Representatives.

    One of the few advantages of being older is you remember the shenanigans that happened in the past. This is far from being the first time this has happened.

    What’s in a name?

    What would you call a government with a leader and representatives elected by people freely voting rather than having a king or queen? After this government is elected by the majority during freely held elections, what would you call the destructive and blocking actions against this freely elected government by a minority group who are disgruntled by the result of these freely held elections?
