    What are they doing in Washington?

    Our federal representatives are supposed to be aware of issues in our communities and advocate for us in Washington, D.C.

    So when it was announced last week that Fort Knox would be losing the 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division – taking with it thousands of jobs – why were our elected representatives caught off guard? They “hope” other military units will come in the future, but hope is not a plan of action.

    Hot weather is upon us and with the rise in temperature comes much suffering for animals.

    Scouts, homosexuality already separate

    Most of my law abiding, productive Maryland hometown friends are former Scouts. The late Harry M. Braxton Sr.; former Cub Scout Packmaster of Pack 1025, and the late Reverend Harold Pitts; former Scoutmaster of Boy Scout Troop 1025, taught us well. No child was ever turned away from membership if they accepted specific rules and consequences. I never saw any sex during Scouting activites.

    Now is the time to get involved

    Well now it seems the Obama regime is mired down into yet one more scandal resulting from the neglect or misconduct of their underlings on our public payroll. It would take several books to cover in detail the corruption of this crew from Obamacare to Fast and Furious, to the green energy giveaways, and the misuse of Federal Agencies such as the IRS, EPA, OSHA, and Department of Justice to reward friends with bribes and punish enemies with legally sanctioned harassment.

    Limit cost of living increases

    The June 3 edition of The News-Enterprise contained a story about Social Security with questions answered by an array of officials. 

    The story indicated  trustees project depletion of Social Security funds by the year 2033 — in 20 years.  Once the reserves run out, incoming payroll taxes will cover roughly 75 percent of  promised Social Security benefits, which would require an immediate 25 percent cut in benefits. This cut would reduce a monthly Social Security payment of $1,266 to $950.

    Furlough fairness?

    Starting next month myself, along with the other government workers on post, will be required to take one day a week off without pay, sixteen hours a pay period, so the government can save money.

    It is amazing how quiet our elected officials and local media have been on this matter, considering what has been made public recently. One branch of the military said they had the money so no one would be furloughed, but yet it was determined, to make it fair for everyone, all branches would be required to enforce the furloughs.

    As buses come and go

    Of public transportation here in Hardin County, a question needs to be asked: Are we are beating a dead horse?

    Yes, a number of transportation studies for well more than a decade show a need for a transit system here in Hardin County — Elizabethtown, Radcliff, Vine Grove and Fort Knox — and found it wanted by the public and feasible to establish.

    Why haven’t fixed routes been set up except on paper and buses seen here are just another taxi service limited to the elderly or disabled.
