    On county government relocation

    On April 19, a local physician penned a column in The News-Enterprise criticizing Hardin Fiscal Court’s decision to move forward with the planning, design and engineering for a new county government facility and expansion and renovations programmed for Hardin Memorial Health.

    Among the exaggerations is the debt he claims the county recently incurred or will incur if these projects come to fruition.

  • Life’s painful rubbish can be transformed with care, mercy

     

    “It just doesn’t make sense” is the generalized response from those familiar with the Tsarnaev brothers. They seemed like the kind of young men you might like as neighbors: kind, quite, unobtrusive.

    These two alleged perpetrators of the Boston bombings? It just doesn’t make sense.

    Or does it?

    No more controls, please

    After listening to the weeklong news reports about the bombing at the Boston Marathon, I am wondering why no one in the media or any of our liberal politicians have come out demanding new bomb control laws.

    Senate fails on gun bill

    The Manchin-Toomey legislation was easy, and smart and patriotic. Expanded background checks are the minimum of what this country should pass to protect our families and communities.

    We must have a background check to volunteer in our child’s school. But we can go to a gun show and buy all the guns and ammunition we want with no background check. Why do we make it so easy?

    Women will go to the polls at the next elections to change the Congress, one vote at a time.

  • Social media makes for all kinds of 'kings-of-the-hill'

    For many reasons, Facebook seems to make the world a little smaller.

    Without leaving the house, I can poke around for updates on my circle of friends in Bowling Green. I can hear about the highlights on my daughters’ lives and their families in Lexington and Pensacola, Fla. I even can collect news updates from the Duck Dynasty characters while following the headlines of this very newspaper.

    Checking in with Facebook can be fun. But it also can be kind of weird.

  • Fiscal Court revote erases arguments

    ISSUE: Fiscal Court’s revote on government move

    OUR VIEW:  ‘Do-over’ was right decision

    Hardin Fiscal Court conducted a second meeting to receive public input and allow magistrates an opportunity to recast a vote on the plan to relocate county government offices. Although those in attendance who spoke in opposition will continue to view relocation as the wrong move for county government, Fiscal Court’s decision to hold a second meeting certainly was the right decision to make.
