    Personal principles

    Is there a local GOP “letter writing machine” in Hardin County? Republicans don’t sit around waiting for someone to give them something to write about in support of our party agenda. Such synchronized efforts are phoney. Letters which I write to The News-Enterprise express my own views on subjects which I choose in a format which allows me to touch others in this community whether anyone agrees with me or not.

  • Safety is the responsibility of all

     

    Fans of “The Andy Griffith Show” often point to the episode “Citizens Arrest” as a favorite. Area residents may not be making a citizen’s arrest with a new Kentucky State Police initiative, but they can help curb crime in Hardin and surrounding counties.

    A new text-tip line will allow the public to send confidential tips via cellphones.

    Parties have changed

    A writer to the editor on Thursday attempted to portray the Republican Party as the party of civil rights, and the Democrats as racists who supported slavery, created the Ku Klux Klan, etc. It begs the question: Why is Mitt Romney getting less than 1 percent of the black vote? The answer is simple. When the slaves were freed, when Jim Crow was the law of the land, et al, Republicans were the progressive party and Democrats were the conservatives.

    ISSUE: Proposed veterans nursing home
    OUR VIEW: The time is right

    One of the most difficult situations an individual or family ever faces is realizing a need for a nursing home and finding a suitable facility.

    Beyond medical care are issues of cleanliness, friendliness and amenities. A competent staff is required, but a compassionate staff is just as important in day-to-day care of patients and their families.

    Pay attention to 401(k)

    On the Sept. 23 Money page of The News-Enterprise there was an article discussing possible changes in Kentucky’s state tax code. What grabbed my attention was not the food tax option but the option to tax 401(k) plans and pensions from private industries to pay for Kentucky public workers’ retirements.

    ISSUE: Community champion dies
    OUR VIEW: Nelson Kelley leaves a worthy legacy

    Nelson Kelley was a mentor and a servant.

    A longtime educator, he spent much of his life helping children. As those who knew him well said he was not only teaching children, but working for them, helping them build better lives for themselves in and out of the school building.

    He was a servant to the community at large, too, having dedicated himself to the United Way of Central Kentucky and its cause.
