    Concerned by story about soldier’s fate

    I can’t believe what I read about that soldier dying due to not having first aid personnel at a physical training site in a story in Tuesday’s paper. I served in the U.S. Army for 28 years, I cannot remember ever going to any training site that we did not have medics there in case there was an emergency.

    Expressing thanks for EMS, hospital

    On Dec. 11, I fell on the ice and injured my back and my head. I was bleeding profusely and could not get up. Fortunately, someone called 911.

    EMS came almost immediately and very professionally took over. They lifted me on the gurney without further injury to my back, slowed the bleeding from my head, talked to me to keep me from passing out and I was soon at the hospital emergency room.

    50 cents buys ill feelings

    On Dec. 23, I drove from Tennessee to Vine Grove to spend Christmas with my family. I got into Elizabethtown and spotted a chain restaurant. It sounded good. I loved their store in Radcliff when I lived there.

    So I stopped, used the restroom and went to place an order. My appetite is not good, so I ordered a child’s meal. I started counting out my change and found I was 50 cents short from having enough money. I was sure I had enough to pay, but I did not.

    President deserves latest recognition

    As we start our first full year of Obamacare, let’s take a moment to give the Campaigner-in-Chief recognition for his latest award. Unlike the Nobel Peace Prize, this is an award which he has worked hard to get and truly deserves. 

    So congratulations to Barack Hussein Obama, you are the winner of the 2013 politifact.com Lie of the Year Award.

    School safety drills are sign of societal failure to act

    Lock down drills. Why as parents and grandparents are we accepting this? Have we convinced ourselves there is nothing we can do about our children not being safe in school?

    If you know who Phil Robertson is, then you know enough to read this letter. If you don’t know, then you can stop reading here. Phil Robertson, from all I have read, is a religious person whose beliefs are deeply rooted in his reading of the Bible.
