    KET and religion
    KET promoters say KET delves into all parts of Kentucky life, yet I haven’t seen a program on the impact of the major religions on society. I see history programs that do not mention religion, but about so and so who did something. Schoolbooks were the same.
    The Salvation Army would make a great story and the 25,000 membership in charge of food supply would ensure the poor are fed.
    Where are programs on:

    NAACP gets a breath of fresh air
    I’d like to thank The News-Enterprise for the beautiful article written about the NAACP Freedom Fund Banquet that was held at Fort Knox Leaders Club.
    The News-Enterprise quoted every topic pastor Gerald Smith, associate professor at the university, spoke about, which all was very interesting.

  • For unification to succeed, residents need to know what they’ll lose

    Back in the early 1990s, when I was a reporter for The Courier-Journal, I remember seeing a book by late University of Kentucky professor William Lyons called “The Politics of City-County Merger: The Lexington-Fayette Experience.” It was on the desk of then-Mayor David Adkisson of Owensboro. 

    At the time, Owensboro was in a campaign to merge with Daviess County; I was reporting on that effort.

    No to alcohol sales
    I am concerned about the upcoming wet/dry vote in Vine Grove, Radcliff and Elizabethtown. These three towns will decide for the entire county whether liquor stores and alcohol sales in conven-ience stores will be allowed. I live in the county and have no vote in this matter. However, I do have a voice and I choose to speak out against the sale of liquor here.

    Skeptical and proud
    With the 10th anniversary of the terrible tragedy in New York City approaching, let us remember all the lives that were lost that day and weeks and years following. Pray for the people who are sick and injured from it and for families and friends of people who perished.
    I heard a CNN report that the first responders to 9/11 are not invited to attend (the anniversary ceremonies). I don’t fully understand that, but keep those men and women in your prayers also.

    Crosbie for treasurer
    Let’s thank our lucky stars that we have K.C. Crosbie running for state treasurer in Kentucky. According to Forbes, our commonwealth has been named the worst-run state in 2010.

    Stand up for coal
    A few days ago, President Barack Obama told an audience at the Northeast Iowa Community College in Peosta, Iowa, “There are some boneheaded things the government is doing that need to be fixed.” I definitely agree with that and I think a lot of The News-Enterprise readers can agree with that as well. And he went on to say, “Government can make a difference.” I think we can agree with that, provided those in government who can make a difference, will.

    Satire on display
    On the Aug. 18 Opinion page of The News-Enterprise, a letter said, “Senator Michael Bennet (D-Colo) has stated, ‘Even if a so-called ineligible person (unregistered American, illegal immigrant) casts a ballot, is that really so bad? Shouldn't every living person be entitled to vote for who will rule over him?’ A U.S. senator speaking on behalf of violating our laws.”
