    ‘Housing shortage’ has many causes
    Recently on public radio, I heard the Fort Knox commander voicing his concern about the shortage of housing around Fort Knox. This is the second time I have heard him voice concern about this.
    Instead of blaming the local community, maybe he should explore or do more research. Where is he is deriving this opinion from? If I were his sergeant major for a day, I would provide him with the overall facts versus a narrowly focused point of view. Facts such as:

    Holder ’em or fold ’em
    Having observed the latest massive dump of classified documents through Wikileaks, I am reminded of a scene from the movie “Casino.”
    In that scene, Ace, the casino manager played by Robert DeNiro, comes upon his hapless slots manager who had stood by while three progressive slot machines paid out jackpots literally one after the other.

    Turn on your headlights
    Growing up, I was always told that it was a “privilege” to have a driver’s license. When certain individuals put others at risk by not obeying the rules of the road, then that “privilege” needs to be taken away for a period of time.

    Where do the homeless sleep
    I have bedding I want to donate. I started at Helping Hand thinking that they could point me in the right direction. The answer was that the homeless sleep outside. There is no shelter in Hardin County.

    Top layer should freeze first
    I could not believe my eyes when I read that President Barack Obama calls for two-year freeze on federal pay. This would not apply to the military, which is good, but would affect all others on the executive branch payroll.
    Who or what is he calling the executive branch payroll, because he says this does not, and I will say this again, does not apply to Congress or its staff, defense contractors, postal workers or federal judges and workers.

    Chambers are prepared
    Chamber members: Please plan to vote for the merger of our local chambers. There are many good reasons to support the merger; you may already support the merger yourself so this letter is to encourage you to schedule the time and vote for the merger.

    No leader required
    In the Nov. 28 paper, Kathleen Parker wrote an article on your Opinion page that I found rather laughable. She reported on the arrival of a Centrist political movement, as though that would be a path toward what moderates would want.
    Kathleen Parker then ended her article saying, “All that’s missing from a Centrist movement is a leader.”

    What’s fair for the goose
    I read in the paper that President Barack Obama called for a two-year freeze in federal pay; I thought, as a federal employee, I could give that up if it means doing my part to get the U.S. back on track financially.
    Then I read that the freeze would not affect postal workers, defense contractors, federal judges or members of Congress. Huh, why not? What kind of message is that sending? You can impose a pay cut on me but you won’t do the same for yourself?
