    No dumping
    The old cemetery on Bewley Hollow Road is a favorite spot for dumping unwanted animals. This time, the perpetrator was almost caught, as he/she dumped a boxer. A neighbor saw it happen, but (unfortunately) couldn’t get the license plate number. (Maybe next time.....) Just know that lots of people are watching that area.

    Citation disappoints
    I was greatly disappointed when I read Tony York was cited for allowing Ronnie Crain to drink wine at the Tony York’s on Main restaurant in Glendale.

    Ethics code already in place
    I read with interest a recent article, “Radcliff officials respond to denied liquor applications.”
    The Rev. Edward  Palmer of  Radcliff City Council has proposed at several city council meetings that Radcliff needs a code of ethics. In the front- page article, Palmer again called for a “code of ethics.”
    Hardin County has an 18- page code of ethics that was adopted in 1994. Amendments were added in 1996 and 1999.

    For free-standing casinos
    I am concerned about the drastic need for state money to restore cuts already made and the threats of more cuts against various programs. In my opinion, the most effective way to cover this need is free-standing casinos in Louisville and other large cities. I am not opposed to race tracks having slot machines, card games, etc., to supplement their income but I am opposed to setting the 60-mile limit between a racetrack and a casino.

    Frankfort needs a new perspective
    Redistricting has overshadowed every issue during this legislative session.
    The Kentucky General Assembly has been in session since January and legislators have allowed redistricting to be a priority over important concerns such as education and job growth.
    Bryan filed to compete for a seat in the State House of Representatives and Hardin County voters should consider his platform.

    Punishment enough
    After reading “Judge grants dismissal of charges against ex teacher” in the Feb. 6 issue, I have to agree with the decision to dismiss the charges against Steven Gray. Even with the charges being dropped, Gray probably will not be hired to teach and that in itself is punishment.

    On the local veterans tribute

    I am sure we all are aware that the purpose of the Hardin County Veterans Tribute is to honor the service and sacrifice of those who have so nobly defended our nation and the freedoms we enjoy.

    But let me shed some light on the other side of the story. The plan for this tribute began in 2008. It was the brain child of Gary Broadway, who had seen a similar tribute to veterans while traveling.

    Men must stop telling women how to live
    I was listening to the Diane Rehm Show on NPR and they were discussing the mandate that health insurance provide birth control for women who are employed by church-run organizations. I know the Catholic church always has been against birth control. I was brought up Catholic so I am familiar with their teachings.
    The question I have for church leaders is: Do they provide health insurance in these same organizations that provide the medical procedure of a vasectomy for men? Is that not a form of birth control?

    Outpouring of support strikes home
    I have had the great pleasure in assisting the coaching staff for the John Hardin High School bowling teams. During that time I was told that to compete, each bowler would need his or her own equipment. For a lot of reasons some could not afford to do so at the time. I asked my bowling companions from several leagues if they had any used bowling balls or bags they could donate to the high school bowlers.
