    Be compelled to do more

    Kudos to Jody Ingalls for her clear and compelling letter defending Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy’s support of “the Biblical definition of a family” (Support Chick-fil-A, July 29). It has been encouraging and impressive to see what a powerful response his remarks have received.

  • Seize the opportunities

    THE ISSUE: Back to School
    OUR VIEW: New year is a fresh start

    A box of perfectly pointed crayons, a pristine backpack, a clean locker, a hair cut and a carefully planned outfit laid out the night before. All these things are icons of a new school year.

    They are fresh, untarnished and full of promise. So is the school year itself.

    Today, thousands of students head back to class as Hardin County Schools open the 2012-13 school year. Elizabethtown Independent Schools resumed Tuesday.

  • Awash in excellence

    TOPIC: Good news abound
    OUR VIEW: We have plenty to celebrate

    Here’s what $57,000 can get you in the world of academics: A new engineering program at Elizabethtown High School.

    EHS recently announced Project Lead the Way engineering program will start this year thanks to a local industry. Metalsa of Elizabethtown is partnering with the school and providing $57,000 for supplies and equipment for the class.

    Core of Chick-fil-A protest

    It is not free speech that has ruffled our feathers. It’s that Chick-fil-A has donated millions of dollars to hateful organizations. Organizations such as the Family Research Council, who, in 2010, spent $25,000 lobbying Congress not to condemn Uganda’s “Kill the gays” bill. What is wrong with simply not wanting our money forwarded to such organizations? That is the reasoning behind the boycott.

  • Tips to reduce stress of finding a home loan

    With interest rates at historic lows and home prices not back to pre-recession values, Many people are looking at buying their first home, buying bigger homes or refinancing mortgages.

  • The issue is free speech and respect, not chicken

    Who would have thought buying a chicken sandwich with a pickle on it could become a political statement?

    Two weeks ago, the political donations and faith-based beliefs of the 91-year-old founder of Chick-fil-A were of little concern. In the past week, it has dominated social media and newspaper front pages and altered the dining habits of thousands ... at least for a day.

    I have to admit I know absolutely nothing about the political posture of Zaxby’s ownership. I do know I love their chicken fingers.

    Free political and biblical beliefs

    Since when are gays in charge of who and where one should eat or have a business?

    I’m referring to gays objection to and closing of the Chick-fil-A restaurant in a state school, University of Louisville. Have they forgotten that free speech is for everyone or just them? Gays have no problem pressing and trying to force their agenda.

  • Government center: Pin it down

    ISSUE: County budget

    OUR VIEW: Time to commit to a plan

    Judge-Executive Harry Berry was correct when he said state and federal governments could learn a few things about management of taxpayer money from local governments in Hardin County. The county, Elizabethtown and Radcliff each ended the year with surplus cash that has been added to various reserve accounts. All should be lauded for those results.
