    Graduates, remember alcohol education
    I have been a DARE officer for nearly eight years with the Hardin County Sheriff’s office. This year, my very first fifth grade class is graduating from high school. I am so proud. Kids from Lakewood, Rineyville, Upton, Sonora and Lincoln Trail elementary schools are taking that big step toward adulthood. I’m writing to remind each of you to remember the things that I, your teachers and parents have taught you about the dangers of drugs and alcohol.

    Half-hearted honors
    After removing the flag, flag pole, M-4 tank and unit memorials from Brooks Field, icons which have been there for almost 70 years, one would wonder: What is Fort Knox thinking.
    Then comes the Kentucky Derby.
    In a recent Turret, there are two pictures with soldiers. One has the caption: “A soldier stands guard while the Kentucky Derby Gold Cup was viewed by fans.”

    Un-COLA in 2012
    In 2012 senior citizens will receive a small cost-of-living-adjustment; however, the cost of Medicare also will increase, which means seniors will not have received a COLA for three years despite the ever-increasing cost of gasoline, medical services and groceries, etc.
    The government has taken a lot more than money from senior citizens. It has taken a piece of their pride, their hope for having a little left over each month to make improvements on their home and other necessities.

    Questions in
    the aftermath
     While I’m glad that Osama bin Laden is dead, not enough “Hell” is being raised. Our Navy violated Pakistani airspace and killed him in a high profile structure near that nation’s capital city. Suppose George W. Bush had done this? Pakistani officials knew long ago where bin Laden was and Hillary Clinton even commended them for their “cooperation.”

    Kentucky governor the difference
    There are some differences in the governor candidates.
    Phil Moffett is a Christian, right-to-life businessman who wants to help Kentucky move in the right direction. Phil’s four-corner platform is the right cure for what is ailing Kentucky, and he has not varied from his plan since he started running. 
    -State sovereignty: Challenging the constitutionality of all federal laws, mandates and regulations.

    Your vote counts
    I am writing to encourage all Kentucky Republicans to please vote in the May 17 primary election, and to take a good look at all the GOP candidates running for office. Each Republican candidate brings something unique to the table. I know much of the thought is who can win in the November election, as it should be.

    Photo evidence not necessary
    I just read your editorial, “Fear of reprisal shouldn’t hide proof of victory” and have to disagree.
    You praised the president for his decision to authorize the raid as opposed to a bombing and you are right. His was surely a serious decision but, in the end, a no brainer. Certainly, the military and other agencies offered a professional judgment of success without which no commander in chief would have given the go. Still he had to decide and good for him for doing so.

    Going wet
    The debate about expanded alcohol sales in Elizabethtown, Radcliff and Vine Grove is centered around two opposing views: 1) expanded sales will yield improvements in our quality of life because of economic growth and 2) drinking alcohol contributes to the moral decay of our residents, causing death, destruction and unwanted influence on our youth.
