    Where’s the support?
    It sure has been interesting reading The News-Enterprise editorials and letters to the editor. One writer went to great lengths to complain about how her candidate was being “stomped on with both feet” in attacks by a “gaggle of right-wing writers.” What was so funny was that as much as she demanded people should write on the positive traits of candidates, she failed to name any about incumbent Steve Beshear.

  • Elizabethtown confronts delicate part of alcohol law

    ISSUE: Economic hardship declaration
    OUR VIEW: E'town should stick with facts

    Virtually by saying so, Elizabethtown city government can declare the community to be in a state of economic hardship and relax voter-approved restrictions on restaurants serving alcohol.

    A hardship, by definition, is a suffering through a condition that is difficult to endure. If you are unemployed or unemployable in these troublesome economic times, certainly those words can apply.

  • Foundation extends sweet child's smile

    TOPIC: Addison Jo Blair Foundation
    OUR VIEW: Child's legacy just beginning

    The life of Addison Jo Blair was short, but the impact on Hardin County and beyond is vast.

    People who didn’t know her showed up at fundraisers and wore yellow bracelets or offered prayers on her behalf.

    Her brief, difficult battle with neuroblastoma, a deadly pediatric cancer that produces tumors in the body and tumor cells in bone marrow, ended in May. When she died, Addison Jo Blair was just 3.

  • Occupying your place in distressed economic world

    Occupy in a Culture of Discontent
    “Cause it's a bittersweet symphony, this life
    Trying to make ends meet
    You're a slave to money then you die”
    --The Verve, “Bittersweet Symphony”

    The first time I saw one of the many people in the Occupy Wall Street movement holding a sign that said, “We are the 99%,” I thought, “That has to include me. I’m certainly not in the 1 percent.”

    Bell ringers needed
    Folks, it is that time of the year again when the “Salvation Army” needs volunteer bell ringers.
    We need to see about getting in touch with The Salvation Army at (270) 234-0833 so you can sign up to be bell ringers. There is nothing so lonesome looking as seeing a Red Tripod with a Bucket without having someone to ring the bell. So how about giving them a call or drop by at the Store on North Mulberry Street in Elizabethtown and signing up.

  • Incumbent gets nod by default

    ISSUE: Kentucky's next governor
    OUR VIEW: Beshear is the default choice 

    On Nov. 8, Kentucky voters will be presented with the choice of three candidates who endeavor to lead the commonwealth to a more prosperous future. Although they share a common desire and passion for improving quality of life within the state, the means differ by which they intend to make this overarching goal a reality.

    Endorsing David Williams
    If you want an intelligent man of integrity to lead this commonwealth, I urge you to cast your vote for David Williams for governor. He is undoubtedly one of the most intelligent men whom I have ever known, and I have known David for more than 30 years.
