    Why voting ID really matters
    It seems there a few out there who deny that voting fraud really exists and how requiring photo identification prevents fraud at the polls. But to try to deny there is a problem by claiming a GOP candidate broke the rules only goes to prove my point. Again, anyone with a Internet connection, a few spare minutes and an open mind can do their own homework. So why is this so much more common on the left as opposed to the republicans?

    Eliminate shoulder straps
    The fact that we have had several automobile accidents in the local area recently has brought to mind something which I thought about a few years back.
    I believe a report I saw estimated 60 to 70 percent of drivers today use seat belts when driving. I thought I probably had an idea which might increase that to 90 to 95 percent. That would be to eliminate the shoulder strap.

    Contraceptive controversy

    I have a question for all News-Enterprise readers who support President Barack Obama’s orders making all religious institutions pay for their employee’s contraceptives and abortifacients.

    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.
