    Loyalty counts

    Karen Sizemore (“Woman fired after chasing shoplifter,” Oct. 11) helped me a number of times in the tool department over the last year or so and not only was sweet as she could be, but extremely helpful. She took as much time as I needed to find the right tool at the right price.

    Stop childish behavior

    Since Bill Bennett was elected to the Elizaabethtown City Council, Councilman Marty Fulkerson and two-time council race loser Arnold Myers have formed a tag team with one goal in mind: attack Bennett and attempt to discredit him publicly.

  • Leadership shutdown

    ISSUE: Federal government shuttered
    OUR VIEW: Demand leadership and governance

    As the government shutdown reaches Day 11 with a federal debt crisis looming next week, many Americans are frustrated, angry and even embarrassed about the impasse.

    What if ...

    I have been listening to the circus that is the debate over the government shutdown, and see how the Associated Press and other mainstream media rush to blame the House of Representatives.
