    Conflicts, conflicts everywhere
    The real conflict of interest in the Radcliff City Council is Pastor Edward Palmer who ran for council without telling voters he is a local church pastor and should 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 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.

    Drunken or conflicted in Radcliff
    I’m not quite sure which of these characterize some of the Radcliff City Council members but they themselves should consider this and decide.

    Perceptions, Perceptions
    Perceive: 1: to attain awareness or understanding; 2: to become aware of through the senses. Webster’s Seventh New Collegiate Dictionary.
    I watched Wednesday’s WLKY interview with Councilman Don Yates and The Bookstore owner, Jerry Brown. The words “perceive” and “perceptions” were used a lot. The question raised was their pursuit of an alcohol license and whether there is an ethics issue or a conflict of interest.

    Excellent work
    on unification bill

    Congratulations and thanks go out to our State Reps. Jimmie Lee and Tim Moore and also to our State Sen. Dennis Parrett for their quick work on trying to get the laws cleared up on the unification process. Unclear or vague laws can create a lot of confusion and keep us from doing what is best for our city and state.

    Appreciative of the flag
    In the last few years Radcliff has been blessed with a number of new eating establishments. The Huddle House, McDonalds and a new Colton’s Steak House are near the intersection of U.S. 31-W and Joe Prather Highway. We no longer have to go to Elizabethtown and pay the 2 percent food tax for a sports complex we do not use.

    Welcome Home spirit shines
    Duke Brigade soldiers all are back at Fort Knox. The communities surrounding Fort Knox are excited about their safe return and the excellent job they did for our country while deployed.
    The Military Partnership Council of the Hardin County Chamber of Commerce was fortunate to be able to play a part in organizing a Welcome Home process that brought soldiers into the homes of appreciative residents for the holidays.

    Recognizing hard work
    In January, Kentucky and many other states observe School Board Recognition Month, acknowledging school board members for the leadership they demonstrate and the many hours they invest as links between the community and its schools.  For their individual and collective dedication, our school community is honoring these men and women during this month-long tribute.

    ‘Farewell and thank you, Mr. Galbraith’
    With newspapers struggling for advertising and readers, The News-Enterprise never ceases to amaze me in an unexpected good way! Today it was with your editorial regarding Gatewood Galbraith. Kudos for another outstanding example of why you are one of the few quality small town newspapers in Kentucky. Excellent tribute to Mr. Galbraith.

    Revisiting alcohol
    What a mess! Alcohol brings conflict of interest by some and economic hardship for others.
    The election was wrong. It should be declared illegal for three cities to decide this issue, which will affect all of Hardin County.
    Concerning “economic hardships” for some restaurants: If enough would identify as “family restaurants – no alcohol allowed,” the economic hardship matter may be resolved quickly.
