    Make ID part of ‘get-out-the-vote’ effort
    It is a hame that politics are so nasty and appalling now.
    It is not a voter-suppression bill that is making a lot of news on the airwaves and in the newspapers. The bills will not stop people from voting, but will try to keep the right people voting.
    When the Democrats wanted people to vote in the 2008 election, they got them out to vote. They could use the same type of turnout to get more people to do the right thing and get a proper identification with a picture to stop voter fraud.

    It’s a spending problem
    I recently read “Not in Our Best Interests,” a March 9 letter to the editor. Being able to debate and voice one’s opinion is uniquely American and I appreciate the writer’s views. However, I disagree with his assessment.
    Washington does not have a tax problem. It has a spending problem.

    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?

    Need exists for bilingual services
    My name is Bishop Noel Santiago, senior pastor of Centro De Adoracion Principe De Paz Inc. (Prince of Peace Worship Center), a Hispanic church in Radcliff/Vine Grove. I have been residing in Radcliff since 2004 and in January 2009 I became senior pastor of the church.

    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.
