    A Veteran’s Day thank you
    On Veterans Day, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the many citizens of Hardin County who made contributions to the Elizabethtown Disabled American Veterans Chapter 003 “Forget Me Not” fundraiser. Members of DAV Chapter 003 set up donation stations at the Fort Knox Commissary, Radcliff and Elizabethtown Wal-Mart stores, and the Dolphin Drive Kroger store in Elizabethtown. Please know that your donations will go to help local area veterans and their dependents.

    Where’s the fence?
    You have heard the old Wendy’s commercial, “Where’s the beef?” Well, I am wondering, “Where’s the fence?”
    My neighborhood has been enveloped by the Elizabethtown Sports Park. Therefore, I assumed the park would be providing a privacy fence for the homes which lie adjacent to the ball fields. I was shocked and appalled this week to see they had planted tall, skinny shrubs as their idea of privacy and security (not to mention a noise barrier) between my back yard and the park.

    Thoughts transcend all religions
    It is disturbing to read Mr. David Williams’ comments on the ground-breaking Hindu ceremony performed in Elizabethtown. We are delighted to see that an Indian company is willing to do business in Kentucky, bringing more growth and jobs locally as opposed to losing jobs overseas. Gov. Steve Beshear needs to be commended for his focused proactive efforts.

    Don’t ignore the facts
    Thank you to The News-Enterprise editorial board for your view in the Oct. 27 edition: E’town should stick with facts. Four city councilmen (Ashlock, Fulkerson, Lewis, Walker) chose to ignore the facts and refused to provide E’town’s population data to the Kentucky General Assembly  in 2010, thereby holding E’town hostage in an incorrect fourth class.

    Likeable vs. competent
    Why should Kentuckians vote for David Williams for governor? The No. 1 reason is if you are unhappy with Obamacare and the out-of-control spending that has us on the verge of bankruptcy as a country, remember this occurred when Democrats controlled the U.S. House, Senate and presidency. You should not want that for Kentucky.
    If elected, here is what you can expect from Steve Beshear:

    Outraged about Williams’ comments
    As a relatively new Kentuckian, I chose to retire in Elizabethtown precisely because of the kindness and core values people here freely share with all who visit or stay. I agree with the director of Flex Films in stating that David Williams’ comments were “offensive and hurtful.” I go further in saying that Mr. Williams’ comments also are based on extreme ignorance and intolerance.

    Suffering by proxy
    I have a question for my elected senator, Mitch McConnell, who also is a leader in Congress.
    He repeatedly has called on the president to make cuts in Social Security and Medicare.
    My question is why, as a leader, has he never proposed to cut his health care, retirement or safety net?
    I live in a country where our leaders feather their retirement, never share in the cuts and suffer by proxy.

    Understanding other cultures
    I want to thank you for the article in Sunday’s edition about the ceremony performed for Flex Films USA’s Elizabethtown investment. I enjoyed all the specific detail and wished that I had been there to witness in person such a meaningful and beautiful ceremony.

    ECTC suffers a loss
    Over the years, the community college in Elizabethtown has suffered a number of losses through deaths, retirements and legislative action. Now the college is faced with another very devastating loss with the resignation of its provost, Dr. Cynthia Cone.

    Go to the polls
    As a longtime poll worker, I am ashamed of those people who are eligible to vote but never do or can’t be bothered.
    Your poll workers are at the polls setting up at 5 a.m., and are there until after 6 p.m. and the machines are closed out.
