    Race in Zimmerman trial

    Time to get real

    Americamight never have heard of Trayvon Martin if either I or another black had killed him. Over 90 percent of American black homicides are black on black. Efforts were made to present George Zimmerman as a racist white man; despite the fact that his mother is Peruvian Hispanic and his father is white, just to reopen angry wounds of the 1960s Civil Rights Era black experience in pursuit of a liberal agenda. Once again, black Americans got “played.”

    McConnell no statesman

    Some voters say they will stick with Sen. Mitch McConnell in 2014 because of his five terms of experience that have served Kentucky and America so well. More and more Kentuckians are fed up with Minority Leader McConnell’s roadblock tactics in the Senate. Multitudes of voters in the other 49 states also are unhappy with McConnell’s poor, negative leadership.

    Keep it clean

    Thanks to the writer of the July 14 letter pointing out the danger of freshly cut grass on the roadway. It becomes even more slick when rain falls on the cuttings.

    Another serious danger to all riders and drivers is loose gravel that washes out or is dragged onto the roadway. When that happens at my place, I get a broom — a push broom works best — and sweep it back to where it belongs.

    The race is on

    It appears that Kentucky’s own Alison Lundergan Grimes is off to a fast start in her bid to “Ditch Mitch.” With less than a few weeks in, Grimes may have committed her first campaign violation when she sent out an email begging for money. It seems a good number of those pleas went to the County Clerk’s Offices throughout the state which she, as secretary of state, oversees.

    Sticking with Mitch

    It’s now official; just before our celebration of the July 4 we find out that the Kentucky Democratic Party’s second choice Alison Lundergan Grimes is now their first choice, because Tennessee resident Ashley Judd turned down the offer of the Kentucky Democratic Party.

    Bad legislation  

    The Obama administration did it again. Mark Mazur, deputy assistant Treasury secretary for tax policy, published a blog post canceling some insurance reporting rules and tax enforcement of Obamacare until 2015 as Washington began to evacuate for the Independence Day holiday.

    A festival well done

    This past White Mills Days saw a lot of reasons for our community to celebrate the spirit of a community even as the weather threatened to wash away our festival. It was a comman site to see men and women bringing in hundreds of pies and cakes carefully protecting them from the elements.

    Celebrities at the sports park?
    That is what you would have thought with all the cameras clicking. The Floresville Big Dawgs from Texas made us older folks feel like celebrities.

    We had driven 1.3 miles to support the team, once in pool play and on tournament day. My husband, John Walker, grew up only 26 miles from Floresville, having played football for Pleasanton High School against Floresville back in the dark ages (1951-1953).

    Keep the road clean

    I viewed a picture on page A2 in Thursday’s The News-Enterprise that runs shivers up my spine. 

    As a rider of a motorcycle nothing is more shocking than to round a corner and see freshly cut grass on the roadway. Many times there is no place to go because of oncoming traffic. I quickly pray and slow down as safely as possible. Feeling the tires slide on slick grass is not a fond feeling.
