  • Theater owner’s decision a hot topic

    I salute Mr. Ike Boutwell on his stand not to show a movie that has the traitor Jane Fonda as a cast member. Her actions during the Vietnam War aided and abetted the enemy while we had our armed forces fighting in theater. There is no doubt in my mind that her actions of encouraging the North Vietnamese army led to direct casualties of U.S. armed forces.

    Shut out of the parade

    I own and run Sinister Tombs Haunted House in Hardin County. We are a small, family-run haunted house and take great pride in having been in Hardin County since 2001.

    Until 2012, we had been accepted in the Heartland Festival parade in Elizabethtown every year. We were denied entry in 2012, saying we were too scary.

    Not qualified

    The racist agenda has been going on longer than before the Martin/Zimmerman story. It is sad most of those who are trying to bring the “forces” to bear are members of the black community.

    It is now being reported Charles Rangel has thrown out the rule book. In an interview, Mr. Rangel had the guts to say: “members of the Tea Party are nothing but a bunch of racist people ... who want to keep the black man down.”

    Apology too late

    I was living in a small town in southwest Virginia. My husband was stationed in Vietnam as an artillery sergeant.

    Thomas was as good as they come
    I join Ben Sheroan in his praise of Babe Thomas and his service to Hardin County. I only mention a correction to your statement that “no elected Republicans held local office in those days” to further emphasize the magnitude of Judge Thomas’ character.

    Water connects us all

    The News-Enterprise editorial board’s Aug. 22 editorial “Diving in on swimming question” focused on Elizabethtown City Council member Terry Shipp’s question about the decision to close the municipal pool: “How can a city offer a $28 million tourism-focused sports park and fail to provide a public pool?”

    Racism not a factor in theater 

    I applaud Ike Boutwell for his decision to do what he wishes to do with his own business. One of the responders to the letters section seemed to want to indicate his not showing “Lee Daniels’ The Butler” was something other than Jane Fonda, ergo, perhaps racial. Mr. Boutwell also did not show “Monster-in-Law” a couple years back because Fonda was the main character.
