    Medical movement

    Hardin County Judge-Executive Harry Berry insinuated in his letter that I own land where a proposed county government building might be constructed. I would like to assure the judge I do not own a square inch of property downtown. My main concern is not moving county offices from downtown but rather with Hardin Memorial Hospital, which I spent a lifetime helping to build.

    HMH a treasure

    I would like to make a special comment about Hardin Memorial Hospital.

    I was admitted to the hospital for different surgeries. I received outstanding service from the staff to the surgeon for my excellent care and recovery.

    It is comforting to have such a good service provider at HMH.

    The following are excerpts of essays written by area teens for a class project.

    Teen hangout?

    It’s 5 p.m., you just got off work. What’s your child doing? Either playing Xbox or texting. And you know neither one of them is good for them. Well, what if there was a way to get them off the Xbox and cellphone and still have some fun while staying out of trouble? There is a way but we currently do not have the solution. But, I know a solution. We need a hangout for teens to have fun and stay out of trouble. Doesn’t that sound nice?

    On county government relocation

    On April 19, a local physician penned a column in The News-Enterprise criticizing Hardin Fiscal Court’s decision to move forward with the planning, design and engineering for a new county government facility and expansion and renovations programmed for Hardin Memorial Health.

    Among the exaggerations is the debt he claims the county recently incurred or will incur if these projects come to fruition.

    No more controls, please

    After listening to the weeklong news reports about the bombing at the Boston Marathon, I am wondering why no one in the media or any of our liberal politicians have come out demanding new bomb control laws.

    Senate fails on gun bill

    The Manchin-Toomey legislation was easy, and smart and patriotic. Expanded background checks are the minimum of what this country should pass to protect our families and communities.

    We must have a background check to volunteer in our child’s school. But we can go to a gun show and buy all the guns and ammunition we want with no background check. Why do we make it so easy?

    Women will go to the polls at the next elections to change the Congress, one vote at a time.

    Consider perspective

    I am writing to respond to a previous writer’s letter regarding the poverty simulation. I take offense at his suggestion that becoming a single mother is somehow the result of her poor decisions.
