    Good things occur in LaRue, too

    As a resident of LaRue County, I along with others have been embarrassed by the recent attention we have drawn in the media. I do understand the press has a responsibility to report such things and I also understand negative items are more interesting to the public.

    Recommending candidate to friends

    I am writing to inform my area neighbors to vote for Kendrick Bryan for Hardin County magistrate of the 6th District on May 20.

    Kendrick and I have been longtime friends. Throughout the years, getting to know Kendrick has been a privilege. He always has an ear ready to listen. No matter what it is I asked for, he was always there ready to assist in any way possible.

    Debbie Donnelly offers invaluable experience
    The Hardin County Clerk’s office is responsible for a myriad of public services all governed by countless numbers of Kentucky Revised Statutes.

    The complexities of some of these statutes can result in differences of opinions and may at times warrant legal interpretation.

    Call for fiscal responsibility

    Hardin County residents, please take note. The Hardin County School Board announced on Sept. 4, 2013, that it was raising property taxes. Eighteen calendar days later, Sept. 22, 2013, it announced the approval of its budget.

    What is wrong with this picture? Shouldn’t this process have been completed in reverse order? Finalize the budget, then determine if there is a reason or need to raise taxes.

    Pollution deserves more attention

    Elizabethtown needs to be more concerned about pollution. The first reason is that pollution damages the environment. It eats away at living things because of the fumes from vehicles and factories, so pollution affects the entire planet.

    After the pollution has slowly destroyed all plants, we won’t be able to breathe. We breathe in oxygen and breathe out carbon dioxide. Plants do the exact opposite, so we need plants to survive, and plants need us.
