    Real hero identified
    I’d just like to comment on the Dec. 23 editorial, “Success attracts detractors.”
    Your editorial was spot on except for one thing. I agree that Tim Tebow is an excellent role model but I disagree with him being a hero. If an example of a hero is needed, then look to the column just below about U.S. Marine Corps Maj. Megan McClung.

    OUR VIEW: All deserve kudos

  • A jar filled with memories and love

    One gift remained under the tree.

    I hadn’t noticed that the box had been pushed into a corner, intentionally set aside as the last to be opened. The significance was lost on me, even after Mom shoved it in my direction.

    Christmas always had been special in my parents’ home. They sacrificed to make it that way.

  • Another earth, another year: Why not another you?

    Scientists have discovered another earth. Well, sort of.

    Earlier this month, NASA’s Kepler space telescope team announced the discovery of Kepler-22b located in what is called a “habitable zone,” meaning an environment that’s not too hot or too cold for the possibility of life. And just last week, the team unveiled two other earth-sized planets, Kepler-20e and Kepler-20f, although they are not in the habitable zone.

    ISSUE: Tim Tebow and faith
    OUR VIEW: Shame on critics

    ISSUE: Hardin County School drug and alcohol policy change
    OUR VIEW: Shortened suspensions benefit students, schools

    In June, the Hardin County Schools Board of Education is expected to revisit possible changes to the district’s drug and alcohol policy.

    District officials want to shorten suspensions of first offenders who possess, use or are under the influence of drugs or alcohol at school or a school event, intending for students to spend more time in the classroom.

    Local mayors deserve applause
    Earlier this month, this newspaper published an editorial and the editorial board encouraged Hardin County residents to show its commitment to education.
    Local mayors answered that call.
    Elizabethtown Mayor Tim Walker and Radcliff Mayor J.J. Duvall joined a number of decision makers and dined with Western Kentucky University students in Bowling Green’s Downing University Center.

    Concerning open school prayer
    I read Mr. Charles Haynes’ article on the Dec. 19 opinion page concerning politicians and school prayer and I believe he has missed the point.
    First, the reader must understand that no government will ever have the power to keep anyone from praying whenever and where ever he or she choses to pray.
