    On civil rights

    After reading a letter in Sept. 7’s edition of The News-Enterprise, I feel compelled to write this letter. The Sept. 7 letter promulgates the preposterous notion that the Democratic Party was and is against the civil rights movement. This letter is an insult to my intelligence, my memory, my moral convictions and my life’s experience.

  • Is God invited to the party?

    Does God have a place in the platform of a political party? It depends upon whom you ask.

  • A promise worth keeping

    TOPIC: UK's promise to state
    OUR VIEW: A promise that needs to be kept

    You know how hard it can be to make a promise to one or two people and actually keep it?

    Try being University of Kentucky President Eli Capilouto.

  • Mary Ellen’s story and the history of child protection

    My 10-year-old cat, Hobbes, has a great life. His bowl is always filled with dry food that, according to package copy, is especially blended for a cat his age. Between 5 and 6 p.m. each day, he gets a touch of gourmet canned food. He gets well-kitty vet care and immediate medical attention if he’s not feeling well. He has cat beds near my workstation and my husband’s, yet prefers lounging in our laps or on our paper stacks.

    District drops the ball

    In response to Chuck Jones’ column in the Sports section Thursday, Sept. 6, I want to respond to the Facebook picture of the outrageous conduct of 10 Central Hardin football players with three guns and a bat pretending to shoot an Elizabethtown football player, and the lack of appropriate response by the coach, principal and the apparent non response by Hardin County Schools Superintendent Nannette Johnston.

  • We have a choice of two futures

    Our great nation is facing some tough challenges. My friend and colleague Congressman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) often says we have a choice of two futures. I could not agree more. We can continue the disastrous policies the current Administration is pursuing, such as a one-size fits all health care law that is raising costs, or we can move toward a path of sound policies that will lead to economic growth.

  • Dedication that helps others

    ISSUE: The influence of Jim Collier
    OUR VIEW: Provided abundant opportunities

    James M. Collier Jr. arrived in Elizabethtown with his wife and three preschool-age children in 1955.

  • Remembering Jim Collier

    “A man of eclectic pursuits, Dr. Collier would ask me about my work, my students, and our college’s growth every time I saw him, both on and off campus. Dr. Collier enjoyed sharing his good humor, wit and whimsy; the man always had a twinkle in his eyes and a smile on his face. I grew to appreciate his candor and his counsel on many occasions. Dr. Collier’s vision and support have proven invaluable to the core strength of our college, the success of our students and the quality of life in our commonwealth. I miss him.”
