    Recheck the math
    Let’s travel back in time to the summer of the year 2000. Gas prices were at a low of 99.9 cents per gallon and averaged $1.27 at the end of December. The national debt was being paid down. We weren’t at war, the economy was stable, Medicare and Social Security weren’t being threatened with cuts, there was no bank crisis, America had a year end surplus in the national budget and the unemployment level was acceptable.

    Our view: Providing needed service

    The United States has been at war nearly a decade and as deployments continue, another battle is brewing.

    It’s a fight for marriage.

    Veterans are voters
    I’m a life member of the American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars and the Disabled American Veterans. Recently, about 15 veterans attended one of Gov. Steve Beshear’s town hall meetings at the Knicely Center in Bowling Green. We sat together in the second row at the event, right behind the governor’s staff, who took up the first row. We all wore American Legion hats, so our status as veterans was very obvious to all, including the governor.

  • Jack Harris: My father, my hero

    By Susan Smith

    I walk into my Dad’s office and I see the numerous plaques and awards hanging seamlessly on the walls. Then I look at the man behind them all who wouldn’t brag or boast or take credit for any of them.
    Today, I wanted to let everyone know how proud I am of my hero, Deputy Chief Jack Harris, who is retiring after 29 years from the Elizabethtown Police Department.
    The final few weeks have brought back so many memories as we browse through photographs and letters of thanks throughout his career.

    Great service
    The people of Elizabethtown have a great service in the Public Works Department. I think we take for granted the service of picking up all the debris that we leave out in the streets.
    Not only do they provide this service, but the competence of those who operate that machine is extraordinary. We are very fortunate to have them. I say thanks from everyone who avails themselves of this service.
