  • Slapping speeders on the hands will not solve driving issues

    Well, it’s 2012 and as I sit here watching TV, I think of the people I won’t get to see this year due to death.
    I listen to the news every night and hear of people dying in auto accidents.
    Since Christmas, people have died on Kentucky roadways. Wrecks are termed accidents, but actually that terminology is wrong. Most wrecks should be classified as a bad decisions.
    Five days a week, I drive 200-300 miles on highways and interstates. I see all those bad decisions.

  • Change your ways or die on the vine!

    To the editor:
    I do not understand the banner at the courthouse. Is it a plea or is it a threat?
    People driving through town must think, “what losers the merchants must be to put up such a banner.”
    We live in a capitalistic society. To succeed you must offer a good product or service at a fair price with good service.
    When citizens get gouged by larcenous gas prices sooner or later they will go elsewhere and while there will go shopping.

  • Not terrorists, just concerned

    To the editor:
    A funny thing happened to liberals on their way to socializing America. The American people rose up in protest, thus the Tea Party emerged.
    The movement started with small groups and grew until, on Sept. 12, 2009, a crowd estimated to number between 500,000 and one million people gathered on the mall in Washington, D.C.

  • Thanks to the Food Lion employees

    To the editor:
    We wish to publicly thank all the kind and courteous workers at Food Lion. We will miss all of you as you have always been kind and very helpful whenever we shopped there. We hate to see you leave. Good luck to all of you.

  • Lou Mary Marsh retires from Toddler Village Daycare

    To the editor:
    There are few times in life when you meet someone who has been so remarkable that it moves one to write to the editor to express those thoughts. Today is one of those rare occasions. This week, Lou Mary Marsh will retire from Toddler Village Daycare at Harrison Memorial Hospital after 20 years of service.

  • Taxation with Misrepresentation

    To the editor:
    One thing I have learned after 20 years in government service is that real change happens only if citizens get involved. People can become involved by contacting their elected officials and letting them know of their concerns. If enough people voice their opinion, elected officials will listen. If you take the time to vote someone into public office, you should take the time to let them know they are public servants. They are working for you.

  • Shame on Webb's attorneys

    Shame on Webb’s Attorneys

    To the editor:
    I can’t explain how I feel about the lawyers for Webb and what they are trying to say about this man who brutally killed a woman while her children were in the house. That his actions were due to him being a diabetic. Plus, because of this, it would violate the Americans with Disabilities Act to give him the death penalty.
    Well, did he give her a choice? No, he took her life and deprived her children a mother. So, I guess he had the right to this horrifying act; his disability made him do it.

  • Grave thieves

    To the editor:

  • Get the country back into order

    To the editor:
    Just what, exactly, is happening is Washington, D.C.?  And just why does the President think he can run the country by himself?  
    He defied the U.S. Senate and his Constitutional authority and used his recess appointment powers to select Richard Cordray as the new director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau when the Senate is not even in recess. Then he cut the defense budget by over $500 billion placing our national security in jeopardy.
