    Voters should
    take a close look

    I would strongly encourage all Hardin County taxpayers to take a very close look at everyone who decides to run for positions on the Hardin County School Board in the next election.
    Board members Kay Sharon, John Emary and Michael Kinney voted to raise our property taxes last year at the maximum amount allowed by current law and they just keep right on spending. Charlie Wise and Suzanne Broadwater voted against raising taxes.

    Positive about ‘Son of God’

    After watching the movie “Son of God,” I found it spiritually uplifting and a means for others to be inspired by the life of Jesus Christ.

    It is hard to believe the movie reviewer in your Thursday paper possibly could have seen the same movie since her description of the movie was so negative, while my interpretation so positive.

  • Be careful when looking for college aid

    As the cost of a college education continues to rise, so does the number of people looking for help paying for their educations. Every year, thousands of students and parents fall victim to scholarship search service scams.

    KUDOS: Praising positives in our community

    Dix-E-Town Lanes in Elizabethtown was filled over the weekend with bowlers throwing strikes, spares and gutter balls for a cause: To benefit the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kentuckiana Bowl for Kids Sake program.

    While the annual undertaking is a major fund-raiser, it also is used to help recruit needed volunteers into the organization. Currently, there are 100 children on a waiting list for adult mentors in Hardin County.

  • Right-to-work laws actually can benefit labor unions

    Labor-union workers wearing ugly green T-shirts verbally accosted me at the end of last week’s news conference in the Capitol Annex promoting a right-to-work policy for Kentucky – something employees in 24 other states enjoy.

  • Trucking advocate offers views on heavier loads

    Recently, an article was presented here from a concerned group discussing why Senate Bill 44 should not become law. Senate Bill 44 would allow trucks hauling poultry, livestock and agricultural products to travel on all state and local roads up to 8,000 additional pounds. The topic of heavier trucks is a discussion worth having and one that is taking place on the national level as well as the state level.

    Quarry rezoning ‘rocks’ all residents

    “Residents to appeal quarry decision” was the title to an article appearing on the front page of The News-Enterprise on Thursday, March 6. Yes, we the residents of Mill Creek, Ravenswood and Stonecreek and neighbors along Bewley Hollow Road are appealing this decision made by “our” Hardin County Planning and Development Commission, but this should be appealed by all homeowners in Hardin County.

    If this committee can do this to our community, it can do it to all.
