    The sky did not fall
    I saw comments about the “leadership” position taken by the mayor and city council in the paper Thursday concerning alcohol in city parks. It reminds me of the verse in the Bible that says if the blind lead the blind, they will both fall in the ditch. If you truly want to be leaders, you would stop futile attempts to legislate morality. I grew up in this town, and for years I wished alcohol would be legalized.

    Cliché has it wrong
    Ignorance is not bliss; and certainly when it is arrogantly portrayed as blatant bigotry, the cliché becomes an all too-readily available excuse by others for another’s words or deeds. No, in fact ignorance is divisive, delusional and deadly, but rarely is it blissful.

    Hands off pensions
    As true to national form, Kentucky is failing to ensure its promised pensioners of their full funding and future security. As a 35-year worker for the state Highway Department, I am in fear of losing what we worked for and were promised.
    As Social Security has been used as the national “cookie jar” for Congress and presidential projects, our Kentucky Highway Department pension is being sold down the river for immediate use.

    Elect Bryan
    The greed and gridlock must end in Frankfort. Kentuckians need results and momentum from the Kentucky General Assembly. Instead, voters are dealt a dysfunctional and polarized political system.
    Hardin County residents can fight back by electing Kendrick Bryan. The first-time candidate is running for state representative and his platform emphasizes accountability, education, fiscal restraint and job growth.

    Appreciative of care
    Most people who read this have had the same experiences and understand my frustrations. We had chosen PrimaryCare as our home health care provider and they has provided professional, caring service and I highly recommend them. Their last visit was Jan. 11.

    No dumping
    The old cemetery on Bewley Hollow Road is a favorite spot for dumping unwanted animals. This time, the perpetrator was almost caught, as he/she dumped a boxer. A neighbor saw it happen, but (unfortunately) couldn’t get the license plate number. (Maybe next time.....) Just know that lots of people are watching that area.

    Citation disappoints
    I was greatly disappointed when I read Tony York was cited for allowing Ronnie Crain to drink wine at the Tony York’s on Main restaurant in Glendale.

    Ethics code already in place
    I read with interest a recent article, “Radcliff officials respond to denied liquor applications.”
    The Rev. Edward  Palmer of  Radcliff City Council has proposed at several city council meetings that Radcliff needs a code of ethics. In the front- page article, Palmer again called for a “code of ethics.”
    Hardin County has an 18- page code of ethics that was adopted in 1994. Amendments were added in 1996 and 1999.

    For free-standing casinos
    I am concerned about the drastic need for state money to restore cuts already made and the threats of more cuts against various programs. In my opinion, the most effective way to cover this need is free-standing casinos in Louisville and other large cities. I am not opposed to race tracks having slot machines, card games, etc., to supplement their income but I am opposed to setting the 60-mile limit between a racetrack and a casino.
