    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?

    Differing views

    I am in total agreement with views in a letter about your article in the Nov. 10, Wednesday’s Woman, on intimacy (Viewpoints differ on intimacy, Nov. 15).

    I began to read the article and realized my views and beliefs are totally different.

    Society today is paying the price because of its low morality.

    Needless to say, this article ended up in the bottom of my bird cage.

    12 steps, no prescriptions
    I want to thank The News-Enterprise for its recent article reporting the March 2011 launch of Celebrate Recovery at Severns Valley Baptist Church. This article followed the successful regional one-day Celebrate Recovery training provided by California-based Saddleback Church’s national Celebrate Recovery Team and hosted at Severns Valley Baptist Church.
    The article, and particularly its headline, may have left some readers with an inaccurate perception of what Celebrate Recovery is really all about.

    The future is hopeful

    The Radcliff City Council met Nov. 16 to discuss and  vote on an issue of critical importance to the Radcliff community. The issue was whether we should spend unbudgeted money on a land-leveling project at the Millpond Business Park on Joe Prather Highway. With a split council vote, 3 to 3, the mayor entered her vote in support of the motion and it was passed. We will spend $475,000 on this endeavor and leave the next council to reconcile the city budget.

    Time to ensure your pets have adequate shelter
    Winter, with its bitter wind, rain and snow, is rapidly approaching. Now is the time to check our dog houses, patching and repairing all cracks and leaks. It is also time for new, clean bedding, whether it is straw, blankets or carpeting, this bedding will need to be replaced often; putting a board along the bottom of the door opening will help keep the bedding inside the house. Also, turning the door away from the wind helps protect your dog from the cold.

    Hands off Medicare, Social Security
    You wake up feeling good then you read the paper.  More bad news for senior citizens. I have heard the rumors however it may soon be a reality. In 2009 we heard rumors that seniors would not get a cost of living raise and we didn’t believe it. Surely they wouldn’t do that to us.  Well, those fools in Washington did it to us.

    Viewpoints differ on intimacy
    As a physician I was anxious to read the recent article on Dr. Allison Cardin in Wednesday’s Woman on Nov. 10. Turning the page to perhaps read more of the article I noted a headline: “The joy of sex delayed.” I initially thought how neat it was that the paper would publish an article on the value of delaying sexual relations until after marriage.

    Words of a councilman-elect
    I would like to express my sincere appreciation to The News-Enterprise for its endorsement of my candidacy, and to all of my supporters who rallied to the polls on Nov. 2. Our combined efforts sealed a victory for Radcliff. Now, the harder work begins.
