    School Board Recognition Month

    In January, Kentucky and many other states observe School Board Recognition Month, acknowledging school board members for the leadership they demonstrate and the many hours they invest as links between the community and its schools. For their individual and collective dedication, our school community is honoring these men and women during this month-long tribute.

    Keeping the character that’s lacking

    Perhaps this letter may have overtones of sour grapes; however, I am very dismayed with the results from the recent vote to lift restrictions on alcohol sales.

    First and foremost, what a sad display of voter apathy. The low turnout speaks volumes about Elizabethtown and how short sighted and indifferent this town has become. This vote was far less about alcohol or bars opening in town and more about revitalizing a downtown district that has languished in a decaying infrastructure and environment.

    Ducking debt debate

    The administration focusing so much on the gun control debate takes people’s minds off of the major problems we face — the staggering debt, the debt ceiling, the Benghazi murders and the deficit that will affect every taxpayer and every consumer in the country. Whatever gun control plan they come up with will do nothing to lessen the problem and only will affect lawful gun owners.

    Sensible gun control needed

    I still believe the “love of money is the root of all evil.” Directly and indirectly, greed plays a big role in how and why so much deadly gun violence occurs in our country, possibly one of the most violent nations in history. Weapons of mass destruction made in America have been sold and distributed all over the world.

    Don’t feed the addiction

    Addiction usually is initiated when something occurs that causes the “addicted” to feel good. This “feeling good” becomes a self-fulfilling desire to repeat the process. This occurs even if the “feel good” turns out to be destructive or very counter-productive.

    Our federal government is addicted to doing things that make politicians “feel good” as a unit. They do this without addressing the full ramifications; therefore we have an unsustainable debt.

    No new debt limit

    We are in a situation which is few short years away from a complete financial collapse.

    This nation has been running annual deficits of more than $1 trillion for the past four years and our national debt is $16 trillion. What is our president’s solution? Tax increases for the job creators and four more years of deficit spending with a projected national debt of $20 trillion by 2017.

    This doesn’t touch the trillions in unfunded liabilities in Social Security, Medicare and state pension funds.

    Toddlers and tantrums

    As newborn children begin to move about, most parents employ strategies that protect the youngsters, those nearby and property. A simple and effective way to ward off trouble is removing objects that could be broken, thrown, eaten, etc., from the reach of curious hands.
