    Truth vs. race games
    As I stated before, we need to be careful and not let our emotions and sterotypes dictate what we see as truth. There is so much I can bring out about former Sen. Rick Santorum’s statements.

    Discriminatory policy?
    With the recent start of alcohol sales in Hardin County, I have seen some very disturbing signs of racism at the places where it will be sold.
    In every store offering beer or other alcoholic beverages, you can see signs which clearly state, “No alcohol sold without a photo ID.” This is clearly an effort by the Democrat-controlled Commonwealth of Kentucky to suppress alcohol sales to minorities, the elderly, students and other groups.

    Sour mash — er, grapes
    Just because someone attends city council meeting frequently does not make one an expert on the challenging issues in Radcliff. Of course we all have our opinions, but my opinion is the voters have spoken in the most recent vote that alcohol sales be expanded here in Radcliff and in Hardin County.

    Tennis champs overlooked
    This opinion is in reference to the top 10 highlights in the area in Sports. I do not know who did the research or how much research went into this or how long it took to compile the information. I do know there is one serious omission.

    Recognizing school boards

    There is a special group I would like to ask your readers to recognize this month.  January is School Board Recognition Month.  I wanted to take an opportunity to say “thank you” to the members of the Hardin County Schools Board of Education for the work they do for students, parents, faculty, staff and the county’s citizens.  Our board consists of Kay Sharon, Charlie Wise, Suzy Broadwater, John Emary and Mike Kinney.

    Republicans caved
    By agreeing with President  Barack Obama and the Democrats on extending the payroll tax cut, Republicans have hurt senior citizens and all future recipients of Social Security.  If they wanted to dish out a tax cut of 2 percent, it should have come from federal income taxes, not our Social Security trust fund.  This so-called tax cut resulted in a decrease in our Social Security trust fund of more than $100 billion in 2011 and now they want to extend these reductions into 2012.

    Real hero identified
    I’d just like to comment on the Dec. 23 editorial, “Success attracts detractors.”
    Your editorial was spot on except for one thing. I agree that Tim Tebow is an excellent role model but I disagree with him being a hero. If an example of a hero is needed, then look to the column just below about U.S. Marine Corps Maj. Megan McClung.

    Local mayors deserve applause
    Earlier this month, this newspaper published an editorial and the editorial board encouraged Hardin County residents to show its commitment to education.
    Local mayors answered that call.
    Elizabethtown Mayor Tim Walker and Radcliff Mayor J.J. Duvall joined a number of decision makers and dined with Western Kentucky University students in Bowling Green’s Downing University Center.

    Concerning open school prayer
    I read Mr. Charles Haynes’ article on the Dec. 19 opinion page concerning politicians and school prayer and I believe he has missed the point.
    First, the reader must understand that no government will ever have the power to keep anyone from praying whenever and where ever he or she choses to pray.

    Erbe’s disservice
    As a Muslim feminist (and woman), I was saddened and discouraged by Thursday’s editorial page column on the subject of Islam and women’s rights, “When religion rules law, women lose.” I am sure other Muslim readers also were disturbed. Ms. Erbe, like many commentators on the Muslim world, makes broad and unfair generalizations.
