    End the uncertainty

    Congress needs to know that they are risking our national security by failing to address the fiscal needs of our defense forces.  Recently, the U.S. Army’s Chief of Staff, Gen. Ray Odierno, spoke at the Association of the United States Army’s (AUSA) January Institute of Land Warfare breakfast. His message was quite clear – our national security is at risk because of the fiscal uncertainty we face today.

    Ready for new technology

    Jim Waters nailed it in his Jan. 18 column. We need to do everything we can to bring more jobs and the newest technology to Kentucky. AARP doesn’t speak for me or my family: I am not afraid of technology or innovation.

    I don’t need an out-of-touch seniors group standing between me and progress.

    Community Winterhelp: Opportunity to support those in need  

    With winter in full swing, our community’s most vulnerable residents can sometimes struggle to pay for essential services such as heat and electricity.

    Louisville Gas and Electric Company partners year-round with nonprofit and community organizations to provide utility bill assistance and weatherization services to help those in need.

    This support is even more critical during cold weather months.

    Adventure turned tragic

    As I drove down my street recently and stopped at the stop sign on Ky. 1600 to begin my day, I saw two little dogs attempting to cross the road. One was a medium-size Benji-type dog and one was a Jack Russell.

    Best friends out on a big adventure. You could tell by the spring in their step, it was a great morning for an adventure.

    My immediate reaction was, oh no, they are going to get hit.

    Danger in complacency

    Complacency and greed of some Americans are allowing our freedoms to disappear one by one. Why don’t we just open our country, let our guns be taken away, be killed because of our religious belief let our country be in turmoil and us be brutalized because we have different religious beliefs. We will be like Third World countries.

    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.
