    Consider fairness in waste collection

    As the contract for solid waste disposal with Waste Management comes to an end and the Radcliff City Council discusses new options and decisions to go back to a twice weekly pick up at a higher rate for customers, I would like to add my opinion.

    Protect your pets against winter chill

    Winter, with its bitter wind, rain and snow, is rapidly approaching. Now is the time to check our dog houses, patching and repairing all cracks and leaks. It also is time for new, clean bedding and straw is best. This bedding will need to be replaced often; putting a board along the bottom of the door opening will help keep the bedding inside the house. Also, turning the door away from the wind helps protect your dog from the cold.

    Time will resolve political scene

    I just finished reading Robert Villanueva’s column from Nov. 14 on “Looking at things in unexpected ways.” His article reminded me of a  paraprosdokian that I have been using for at least 50 years without knowing what it was. Usually, I would use mine to end any conversation I was having with any closed-minded liberal with whom I may be talking.

    My paraprosdokian goes like this: You have heard that time heals all wounds, but do you know that time wounds all heels?

    Immigration laws still being ignored

    Normally, laws passed by Congress or any other legal legislative body are required to be enforced by law enforcement authorities. Failure to do so by police authorities constitutes at a minimum malfeasance or worse. Laws are to be enforced unless overturned by the legislature which enacted them or declared unconstitutional by a proper court.

    Volunteers are  Hosparus backbone

    In the mid-1970s, a group of thoughtful citizens came together joined by a common interest. They believed people deserved to live the best quality of life possible until the end of life. That meant having a choice in how and where they would spend those remaining months, weeks or days.

    These selfless volunteers brought a new kind of care to our communities called “hospice.” They weren’t sure if it would work or if it would last – they did it anyway.

    It is interesting that The News-Enterprise has certain guidelines for publishing letters written to the editor.

    There have been letters, articles and phrases made by many — especially people like Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and others — condemning Tea Party Patriots. We have been called Nazis, anarchists, racists and various other derogatory names unfit to print.

    Honoring veterans

    Once again for the fifth year, our group is collecting funds to place a wreath on every headstone at the Kentucky Veterans Cemetery-Central in Radcliff.

    The cemetery opened in 2007 and is averaging 500 burials a year. We are a part of the Wreaths Across America, a nationwide endeavor to recognize our veterans during the holidays.  Their motto is “Remember, Honor, Teach.”

    In honor of November being Prematurity Awareness Month, it is important for us all to remember that healthy babies are worth the wait. As a doctor who delivers babies in Elizabethtown, I see many pregnant women who are a few weeks from a full-term pregnancy and are feeling really uncomfortable. Some are ready to schedule a delivery by induction or cesarean section before they have reached their 39th or 40th week of pregnancy. They know friends or family members whose doctors have agreed to schedule such a delivery.

    ‘Where’s the beef?’

    Reading last week’s headline article about Bill Bennett’s campaign violations made me feel like asking, “Where’s the beef?”

    Sounded like some very petty charges to me. I believe this was done more to discredit Mr. Bennett and to discourage him from considering a run for mayor in the future than any wrongdoing by him.
