    President’s actions threaten democracy

    Saturday is Flag Day and I am very proud of the flag of the United States and for what it has stood for so many years. However, like so many Americans today, I am afraid the flag that has flown over the land of the free and the home of the brave is in dire jeopardy because of the flawed actions of President Barack Obama.

    Concerned about gun violence

    Caring people of goodwill all over America need to become as passionate as Californian Richard Martinez in calling out the National Rifle Association and politicians who are afraid to buck the politically powerful gun organization. Deadly gun violence could be reduced significantly if Congress would develop a spine and pass needed gun-control laws.

    Festival: Huge task, done well

    There’s no better way to kick start the summer than with great music and barbecue. Add sunshine, warm temperatures and great music, plus a few thousand fancy motorcycles, and you have the ingredients for a perfect festival.

    That’s exactly what took place recently during the second BBQ, Blues & Bikes Festival in downtown Elizabethtown. There were fun activities for the entire family, and food for every palate: from funnel cakes, lemonade and homemade ice cream to lots of hickory-smoked pit barbecue.

    Responding to higher calling

    As Christians, we have an abundance of opportunities, but instead of pursuing our own rights, prosperity and happiness, we have a higher calling.

    It’s summarized best in Luke 10:27, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and love your neighbor as yourself.”

    Thanks to all who helped with ‘Wall’

    This past Memorial Day weekend, many Hardin Countians and several from other counties, came here to view the Vietnam Traveling Wall. So many commented that we were lucky to obtain this “Wall” on this special Memorial Day and how the layout with the Elizabethtown Nature Park statues and the multitude of memorabilia just fit together so perfectly. Yes, it did!

    More ‘good guys’ needed

    I recently watched the YouTube video by the Every Town Group of anti-gun activist. What I noticed is how they appeal to the emotions of people. The fact is, the “bad guys” will always find a way to hurt people. The “good guys” only use their weapon as a deterrent.

    Words of support for sheriff nominee

    I am writing to support my friend, Harry Braxton; whom I have known for 20 years, for sheriff of Hardin County. We first met when we both worked at the Directorate of Combat Developments at Fort Knox. Braxton was well respected by his peers for his patriotism, integrity, loyalty, professionalism and leadership.
