    The price paid for freedom

    I have noted with much interest that other than the construction process of the veterans memorial on Ring Road East, there was no or little mention of Independence Day, July 4, the day we celebrate the 236th anniversary of the founding of this free nation.

    The privilege of freedom and security is never free, and patriotism is not a sin.

    Fourth of July suggestion

    I believe this is a special occasion. I should take the time to write to my senators and representative to express my views on current topics.

    It doesn’t matter how brief the communication, but it is most important that I make the effort. They need to know that I am involved.

    Let’s look out for each other

    I write this with a broken heart as I think of the Higdon family and their recent loss. The burglary that occurred at their home as they were at their son’s funeral is unthinkable in our community, and yet it happened.

    It happened here, where we do not give a thought to such things, here where we are disgusted to hear of such a thing. This could be and should be our wake-up call — a call to action to keep this from becoming the usual and expected occurrence in our county.

     What’s in a name

    I would like to address the news about the basketball program being reinstated at ECTC. The name “Barons” was in honor of Coach Adolph Rupp when the college was the Elizabethtown Community College of the University of Kentucky. ECTC is not affiliated with the University of Kentucky; therefore, I think it is improper to use the name “Barons” as the team name.

    Veterans organizations’ help requested

    On Feb. 15 of this year, I wrote a letter to the editor concerning the Veterans Tribute and the impact it would have on this community and the tourist trade that would be generated as a result of its close proximity to Interstate 65.

    For love of soccer

    I would like to give a big shout out and thanks to the city of Radcliff and surrounding communities from Ekron to Hodgenville.

    Propaganda machine

    In last Monday’s paper an AP article headlined “Is Obama a Socialist?” appeared. The article concluded he is not. By now, everyone should know what AP is short for, but some may still believe it is short for Associated Press. I would like to correct that misconception. For the past few years AP, by its actions, stands for All Propaganda. What the article should have concluded for an answer is absolutely not. He is, by definition, a fascist.
