    Asking GOP to see possibilities
    Just to remind Republicans in Hardin County, many Tea Party candidates have won their races. When Rand Paul ran for Senate, most typical Republicans thought only Trey Grayson could defeat the Democrat in the general election but lo and behold Paul defeated Grayson and then won the Senate race in the general, too.
    And what did Trey Grayson do? He hightailed it to that liberal bastion Harvard before his term as Kentucky Secretary of State had ended.

    Snake handling is not for today

    There are several things that disturb me about the article “Snake handlers death” in Friday’s paper. It disturbs me that so many lives are wasted because of not understanding God’s word. It disturbs me that snake handling is illegal in Kentucky and law enforcement simply “look the other way.”

    Another view
    on Senate Bill 119

    Praise for Mandela extended too far
    Near the end of the Jan. 20, 2014, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Birthday Celebration, a man extolled the virtues of Nelson Mandela, Winnie Mandela and the African National Congress. Except for Dr. King being ultimately murdered, Nelson Mandela’s experiences in his struggle against apartheid were identical to that of Dr. King.
