    Thoughts transcend all religions
    It is disturbing to read Mr. David Williams’ comments on the ground-breaking Hindu ceremony performed in Elizabethtown. We are delighted to see that an Indian company is willing to do business in Kentucky, bringing more growth and jobs locally as opposed to losing jobs overseas. Gov. Steve Beshear needs to be commended for his focused proactive efforts.

    Don’t ignore the facts
    Thank you to The News-Enterprise editorial board for your view in the Oct. 27 edition: E’town should stick with facts. Four city councilmen (Ashlock, Fulkerson, Lewis, Walker) chose to ignore the facts and refused to provide E’town’s population data to the Kentucky General Assembly  in 2010, thereby holding E’town hostage in an incorrect fourth class.

    Likeable vs. competent
    Why should Kentuckians vote for David Williams for governor? The No. 1 reason is if you are unhappy with Obamacare and the out-of-control spending that has us on the verge of bankruptcy as a country, remember this occurred when Democrats controlled the U.S. House, Senate and presidency. You should not want that for Kentucky.
    If elected, here is what you can expect from Steve Beshear:

    Outraged about Williams’ comments
    As a relatively new Kentuckian, I chose to retire in Elizabethtown precisely because of the kindness and core values people here freely share with all who visit or stay. I agree with the director of Flex Films in stating that David Williams’ comments were “offensive and hurtful.” I go further in saying that Mr. Williams’ comments also are based on extreme ignorance and intolerance.

    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.

    ECTC suffers a loss
    Over the years, the community college in Elizabethtown has suffered a number of losses through deaths, retirements and legislative action. Now the college is faced with another very devastating loss with the resignation of its provost, Dr. Cynthia Cone.

    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.
