    Unfinished business

    April 9 I spoke at the Hardin Fiscal Court meeting in opposition to moving county offices. We were allotted 4 minutes to speak; therefore, I had to omit some key points.

    Put on your shoes

    Spring has returned and with it the increased possibility of severe storms.

    A couple of years ago, during a TV interview, a reporter asked an emergency room doctor what types of injuries he sees most often. The doctor looked in the camera, and raised his voice and said, “People, when bad weather is forecast, put on your shoes.”

    Sticking with Mitch

    I was not surprised to see Ashley Judd drop out as a potential contender against Senator Mitch McConnell. The Democratic Party must be hard up looking for candidates to run against Mitch; Judd did not even live in Kentucky.

    Define building requirements correctly

    I believe the new Hardin County government building’s gross square footage requirement is overstated and savings in county funds will be realized by accurately defining the base line requirement.

    Magistrate true to his convictions
    A letter to the editor in Sunday’s The News-Enterprise stated, “E.G. Thompson admitted to me he opposed the move to Ring Road but voted for it anyway.”
    Fact: I did express to the writer that my preference for the location of new court facilities would not be Ring Road.
    Fact: I do favor a new building that would be more cost effective than renovating existing buildings.

    Following the crowd

    Last Sunday The News-Enterprise published a lengthy exposition by Hardin County Judge-Executive Harry Berry.

    From what I read, he admitted he has been fixated on moving out of downtown Elizabethtown for many years and only has investigated alternatives to the extent of defeating them.

    Learning from the past

    I have not written anything for some time, but I have very good excuses.

    My excuses are my computer had a virus and was down for weeks before I got around to fixing it. Then, I had a virus and laid low for several weeks.

    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.
