    Surprised by source of recent opinion

    When I read the letter from a writer “Defending fourth-class status,” I was surprised that a retired deputy chief on the Elizabethtown Police Department would defend Elizabethtown or any city for being deceptive in reporting their classification for financial gain.

    Looking at pro-life record

    With no desire for disrespect toward a wife defending her husband (Letters, April 13), I’d like to respond concerning Jimmie Lee’s voting record as well as the state of pro-life legislation in the Kentucky House. 

    A search of votesmart.org reveals zero pro-life votes from Jimmie Lee (2006-2014). In fact, all pro-life bills of the past nine years have been blocked from coming to a vote in the House as they have been repeatedly killed in the Health and Welfare Committee.

    Derby isn’t only important race

    I would like to remind everyone currently enjoying the Kentucky Derby Festival events that there will be another important set of races coming up in the primary on May 20. Many local officials will be vying for a slot in the November general election, but the key race centers on whether we Republicans again will choose an experienced candidate, Sen. Mitch McConnell, over a well-funded newcomer who does talk a good game.

    Prompted by bumper sticker

    The other day my husband went to the post office. After he pulled into a parking space, a young lady in her early 20s pulled into the spot next to him. As my husband was rounding the back of his truck, he noticed the young lady had a bumper sticker that said, “Obama and Biden Forever.” Intrigued, he asked, “So, how is that working for you?”

    Thanks for focusing on faith experiences
    This subscriber was happy to see Suzanne Darland’s article about Easter’s Holy Week on the Wednesday’s Woman page. I still remember my Catholic upbringing and experience as an altar boy during Holy Week and other significant days celebrated in our church.

    Columnist’s view could be joke
    Star Parker’s recent column, “Limiting campaign donations puts limits on ideas,” could be published on onion.com as a joke.
    Parker is worried that limits on campaign donations will stifle the “free flow of information and expression.”

    According to Parker, “Political markets are like other markets.” Well, sure they are as long as politicians are for sale to the highest bidder.

    Tank dedicated to C.S. Spalding
    Thank you to the Boy Scouts who painted the C.S. Spalding tank in the American Legion Park. Our father would have appreciated the Eagle Scout project since he was a Scout Leader for many years.

    Wife defends husband’s record

    I am proud of my husband Jimmie Lee’s 100 percent pro-life voting record. Democrats and Republicans both agree Jimmie is one of the strongest advocates for children in the state legislature.

    Ask questions about school construction

    I appreciate the recent comments by Bill Beckerdite and Kenneth Randall addressing previous letters I have written pertaining to the Hardin County Schools Board. Finally, more people are starting to pay attention to the seeming addiction to spending taxpayer money.
