    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.

    Fonda a traitor

    My appreciation to the movie theater owner who refuses to show “Lee Daniels’ The Butler.”

    Jane Fonda is a sleazeball traitor and should have been executed in front of a firing squad. Of all insults, having her play Nancy Reagan.

    Mayor should show compassion

    In a recent article about noise levels at Flex Films, Joseph Cecil petitioned the company and Elizabethtown City Council for relief from the plant’s noise levels. Mayor Edna Berger’s response to his complaint was, “It didn’t bother me. It smelled like money to me.” 

    This showed a total lack of concern and sympathy for the affected residents. E’town deserves better from its mayor.

    Redistricting Democrats

    The most critical session of interest to Hardin County and particularly Radcliff, is the Kentucky Legislature redistricting plan. The proposal leaves the 25th House District untouched in southern Hardin County, but northern Hardin County’s 26th House District could undergo a slicing into four different districts.
