    Show teachers appreciation

    Life is funny, isn’t it? While we’re in school learning everything from the ABCs and 123s to equations and the periodic table, we rarely have a true appreciation for the teachers who are working hard to help us succeed. We say that we can’t wait to get out of school and we think life will be easier.

    May is Foster Care Awareness Month

    Many people know of foster care, but few really understand how the system works, the role of the foster parents and most importantly, the experience of the children and youth in care.

    More than 6,800 Kentucky children and youth are in out-of-home care. Most are placed in temporary foster care due to parental neglect or abuse. The average age of a child in care is 10.7 years.

    More than 73 percent of the children/youth in care are white; 19.3 percent are black and 4.3 percent are Hispanic.

    Ted, white and blue
    I fully support Ted Nugent’s right to have made the comments he made to the National Rifleman’s Association and do not feel they in any way support the cancellation of his appearance at the Moral Welfare and Recreation concert in June. My view, as a retired U.S. Army veteran, a retired Army sergeant major, is one that the commander(s) who made the decision felt that because Nugent made these comments with foresight and malice toward their commander-in-chief that intent implied.

    Priorities in order

    Congratulations to Vine Grove Mayor Blake Proffit for doing the right thing for Vine Grove. For the first time since Mayor Gary Minter we have a mayor who has the interest of our city as his top priority, not his own personal agenda.

    Do the right thing in Vine Grove

    Although I do not know former Vine Grove Police Chief Steve Manning personally, I have neither heard or seen anything reflecting poorly on his job performance. To the contrary, I have heard many compliments on his performance as police chief and as a Kentucky state trooper. Vine Grove’s crime rate has remained low and I’m unaware of any community wide complaints.
