    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.

    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.

    Straight conservative ticket
    U.S. Census data show rising poverty.  The U.S. poverty rate rose to the highest level in almost 20 years, and household income fell in 2010, underscoring the lingering impact of the worst economic slump in 70 years according to Bloomberg News on Sept. 13.

    Where’s the support?
    It sure has been interesting reading The News-Enterprise editorials and letters to the editor. One writer went to great lengths to complain about how her candidate was being “stomped on with both feet” in attacks by a “gaggle of right-wing writers.” What was so funny was that as much as she demanded people should write on the positive traits of candidates, she failed to name any about incumbent Steve Beshear.

    Bell ringers needed
    Folks, it is that time of the year again when the “Salvation Army” needs volunteer bell ringers.
    We need to see about getting in touch with The Salvation Army at (270) 234-0833 so you can sign up to be bell ringers. There is nothing so lonesome looking as seeing a Red Tripod with a Bucket without having someone to ring the bell. So how about giving them a call or drop by at the Store on North Mulberry Street in Elizabethtown and signing up.

    Endorsing David Williams
    If you want an intelligent man of integrity to lead this commonwealth, I urge you to cast your vote for David Williams for governor. He is undoubtedly one of the most intelligent men whom I have ever known, and I have known David for more than 30 years.

    Ruritan Club supports school
    As president of the Cecilia Ruritan Club, I am compelled to clear the air about comments attributed to the club by one or two disgruntled individuals in the community regarding the building of a new school in Cecilia. These individuals have stated that the Cecilia Ruritan Club is against the building of a new school on the old Cecil family farm. Nothing could be further from the truth.

    Supporting David Williams
    Fortunately for all voting Kentuckians Gov. Beshear finally made it to a debate between himself and his two challengers. Unfortunately he had already decided that one debate was enough for all Kentuckians to see and hear of their governor’s upcoming plans for our commonwealth. Little of those plans was heard. As one review stated that the debate offered few surprises.
