    Keep the road clean

    I viewed a picture on page A2 in Thursday’s The News-Enterprise that runs shivers up my spine. 

    As a rider of a motorcycle nothing is more shocking than to round a corner and see freshly cut grass on the roadway. Many times there is no place to go because of oncoming traffic. I quickly pray and slow down as safely as possible. Feeling the tires slide on slick grass is not a fond feeling.

  • Tuna is more than a fish; it's a childhood memory

    Tuna is a fish. I know it’s accurate to say tuna sandwich but when you grow up saying tuna-fish sandwich, that’s a hard habit to shake.

    Some folks say tuna salad sandwich. Back in my youth when pharmacies all feature lunch counters with bar stools, I ordered a tuna salad sandwich at Wooldridge Drugs in Vine Grove.

    It came with a piece of lettuce under the bread. That’s not how Mom made a tuna-fish sandwich, so my preteen brain equated tuna salad with the piece of lettuce. After all, the main element of a salad is lettuce. Get it?

  • Gary French's four years at the top

    ISSUE: Gary French retires
    OUR VIEW: Superintendent tenure was an active time

    Last month, Gary French ended a 35-year career as an educator. Leading Elizabethtown Independent Schools as superintendent for the last four years, French worked multiple jobs in the district over the decades.

    Teaching started as a means to coach basketball. But French quickly loved teaching and his professional life bloomed to leave its mark on students ,and then teachers, and then administrators and the entire district community.

  • Why trust is the coin of the realm

    There is deep distaste for the extreme polarization and politicization that our government institutions have displayed.

    Back in June, Gallup released a survey that got a fair bit of attention for its headline finding: only 10 percent of Americans trust Congress as an institution. Think about it. If you walk into a cafe this morning and there are nine other people in there reading the paper or staring into their laptops, only one of you in the room has faith that the body charged with making our nation’s laws can do its job right.

    Respectful policy for veterans

    Recently, I was asked my opinion on what I thought about the passing of Senate Bill 150.

    If you are not familiar, it’s a bill in which a veteran who can show that he or she, in the course of their military service, has taken sufficient firearms training course is eligible to apply for a concealed deadly weapons license without taking a course through a state-certified instructor. Background checks still will be done just like any citizen and all concealed carry deadly weapon laws still would apply.

    OUR VIEW: Today is the final day

    Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game goes back 80 years. It is the granddaddy of all such professional exhibitions pitting the best of the best each summer in what has rightly been called the Midsummer Classic.
