    What about treatment of poor?
    In the 2014 mid-term elections and in the 2016 presidential election, the Republican Party should pay significantly at the ballot box for currently writing off the unemployed. The GOP’s weak-minded and weak-hearted response to the unemployed and poor in our country is despicable.
    If the unemployed and poor voted their self-interest in every primary and general election, the Republican Party soon would become a permanent minority party.

    No one welcomes a new tax

    According to a March 13 article in The News-Enterprise, the Kentucky House of Representatives may be considering a law to change the state constitution. This “local sales tax” law could allow communities to add an additional tax of 1 percent to many of your purchases.

    Concerned about strays
    Thank you for the article Feb. 23 about the Stray Animal Facility at Fort Knox. Unfortunately, I have been informed by a reliable source that some of the information contained in the Feb. 27 article on the facility was a spin on the truth by the Army media, out of Missouri. Their facts probably were sugarcoated by someone at Fort Knox.  
    According to my source, the Army’s own regulations are still not being followed.

    Voters should
    take a close look

    I would strongly encourage all Hardin County taxpayers to take a very close look at everyone who decides to run for positions on the Hardin County School Board in the next election.
    Board members Kay Sharon, John Emary and Michael Kinney voted to raise our property taxes last year at the maximum amount allowed by current law and they just keep right on spending. Charlie Wise and Suzanne Broadwater voted against raising taxes.

    Positive about ‘Son of God’

    After watching the movie “Son of God,” I found it spiritually uplifting and a means for others to be inspired by the life of Jesus Christ.

    It is hard to believe the movie reviewer in your Thursday paper possibly could have seen the same movie since her description of the movie was so negative, while my interpretation so positive.

    Quarry rezoning ‘rocks’ all residents

    “Residents to appeal quarry decision” was the title to an article appearing on the front page of The News-Enterprise on Thursday, March 6. Yes, we the residents of Mill Creek, Ravenswood and Stonecreek and neighbors along Bewley Hollow Road are appealing this decision made by “our” Hardin County Planning and Development Commission, but this should be appealed by all homeowners in Hardin County.

    If this committee can do this to our community, it can do it to all.

    Asking GOP to see possibilities
    Just to remind Republicans in Hardin County, many Tea Party candidates have won their races. When Rand Paul ran for Senate, most typical Republicans thought only Trey Grayson could defeat the Democrat in the general election but lo and behold Paul defeated Grayson and then won the Senate race in the general, too.
    And what did Trey Grayson do? He hightailed it to that liberal bastion Harvard before his term as Kentucky Secretary of State had ended.

    Snake handling is not for today

    There are several things that disturb me about the article “Snake handlers death” in Friday’s paper. It disturbs me that so many lives are wasted because of not understanding God’s word. It disturbs me that snake handling is illegal in Kentucky and law enforcement simply “look the other way.”

    Another view
    on Senate Bill 119

    In response to Dave Adkisson, president and CEO of the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, praising Sen. Dennis Parrett and his peers for voting in favor of Senate Bill 119, I have a question. How can making Kentucky more economically competitive and attractive to quality healthcare providers be more important than the current care for residents and their right to litigation?

    Praise for Mandela extended too far
    Near the end of the Jan. 20, 2014, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Birthday Celebration, a man extolled the virtues of Nelson Mandela, Winnie Mandela and the African National Congress. Except for Dr. King being ultimately murdered, Nelson Mandela’s experiences in his struggle against apartheid were identical to that of Dr. King. However, I have a problem with is Winnie Mandela due to her particularly brutal torture-murder method; “necklacing” of fellow blacks while she led the African National Congress during Nelson Mandela’s imprisonment.
