    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.

    Taxpayers on line for questionable loans
    I was just thinking about our national debt. If our government would stop spending money on people who can’t manage their own money, we would be better off.
    I just found out that a business owner who recently filed for Chapter 13 in Bankruptcy Court still could have a Small Business Administration loan on the business.
    Why should our government help someone to finance a business venture when they can’t even manage their own finances?
