    Voter fraud a myth?
     I do not oppose the requirement of showing IDs to purchase alcohol, just that we should take the same care at the voting booth.

    Obama’s complications with Catholicism

  • Feb. 5, 2012: Our readers write

    A matter of safe access
    Have you noticed the two signs located in the parking lot of Home Depot when you were trying to get to Towne Mall? The ones that read “No Thru Traffic.” Surely you have, that is if you have traveled from Veterans Way or the Woodland Drive/Buford Lane detour to Ring Road. One cannot turn left from Ring Road to get to the mall unless you turn at the red light, drive through Home Depot’s parking lot and then turn left on Woodland Drive.

    Obama energy policy needs rewrite
    President Barack Obama’s latest attack on carbon fuels and American jobs is a disaster. He rejected the Keystone pipeline, which was proposed to run from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico, to carry crude oil to American refineries. It would have provided thousands of desperately needed American jobs and reduced our dependence on oil from the Middle East. If it does not go through the U.S., it will go to the West Coast of Canada, and from there, the oil likely will go to China.

    Right side of the road needs attention
    I have read many times over the years how our local roadways have contributed to, or caused, a crash when the vehicle being driven dropped off the right side of the roadway causing the driver to react and, in turn, causing the vehicle to overturn several times. I haven’t kept track of the statistics, but, in many instances, the driver or a passenger has been severely injured or died.

    It’s a conflict
    I find it disturbing that local government leaders vying for liquor licenses would be allowed, considering their positions and involvement in the decision making process, though obviously it fits in with the usual way things are done around here. How dare any of them say this is not a conflict of interest or breach of ethics.

    Voters are the losers
    The more I hear and understand the political actions taken by both parties to further their own self interests and gain power over the “other side,” the more disgusted I become. We’re seeing the evidence of so-called political PACs making untrue attacks on candidates without their input or ability to change them.

    Perceptions in Radcliff

  • Jan. 26, 2012: Our readers write

    Conflicts, conflicts everywhere
    The real conflict of interest in the Radcliff City Council is Rev.Palmer who ran for Council without telling voters he is a local church pastor and could have recused himself from the “alcohol” discussions based on his own agenda to impede all progress on alcohol- related issues.
    It is surprising to me that the title of reverend or pastor has not been attached to Palmer in any of the articles I have read in this paper.
    This is why our forefathers chose to separate the church from the state.
