    Don’t paint president as ogre

    Recently, a letter in this space served up, yet again, predictable pablum from the cranky right wing. It included the phrase “campaigner in chief,” which is no longer clever, and used the president’s middle name (Hussein), a tired tactic that bespeaks the smallness of ethnic bias. My paper was damp when I opened it, probably from the morning frost, but after reading the letter I almost felt it channeled the sputtering fury of the writer’s words, making the newsprint soggy.

    Tax form includes spot for donation

    As residents of Hardin County begin preparing their 2013 taxes, I would like to remind you that your Kentucky taxes offers you an opportunity to help secure money for the political party of your choice with absolutely no cost to you.

    Obamacare ailing as website woes prove

     Nancy Pelosi and a certain African-American news commentator feel that Obamacare is a racist term.

    Since the Clown-In-Chief himself liked the term, nothing could be further from the truth.

    Many of us knew from the get-go that the plan would not work and made our opinions well known. However, to prove a point, let me present some ideas.

    Sharing opinion on a few candidates

    As the political arena warms up in Hardin County, I often pay attention to motives, background and statements made by those who are involved or intend to be in the public eye.

    Harry Barry, you get my vote because you are a representation of good solid values, leadership and a true conservative, as your fiscal responsibility is sound and based on the whole county.

    Concerned about hectic intersection

    I have wondered for some time now why there is not a turn signal for the intersection of Ring Road and St. John Road. When the factories and school let out it is very difficult to make turns.

    Also, the Elizabethtown Sports Park traffic can be included in that when it has events. It is a very unsafe intersection. 

    Hardin County Schools purchased property in the area to build a new G.C. Burkhead School that also will increase traffic on St. John Road.

    Concerned about congested crossroad

    I have wondered for some time now why there is not a turn signal for the intersection of Ring Road and St. John Road. When factories and schools let out it is very difficult to make turns. Also, the Elizabethtown Sports Park traffic can be included in that when it has events. It is a very unsafe intersection. 

    Hardin County Schools purchased property in this area to build a new G.C. Burkhead Elementary School. That will only increase the traffic on St. John Road.

    Expressing thanks to EIS School Board

    We are hearing a lot lately from school boards who have stepped up and made a case both locally and statewide for restoring and increasing funding for schools. Many different groups make money pitches for so many causes that the temptation may be to lump these school boards in with the rest. But that is not where they should be.

    Underground hazard remains a hazard

    Now that the word “hazardous” has been eliminated from any articles about the pipeline carrying natural gas liquid byproducts, we don’t have to worry about the composition which contains propane, ethane, butane, pentane and hexane. The Bluegrass Pipeline executives also have stepped in to show how much they care about our community by offering “grants” (bribes) to endear themselves to the residents of the Bluegrass State.
