    A welcome addition and the need for a dog area in local parks

    To the editor:

    The following is a summary of my thoughts on a couple of topics.

    We have a new resident in our city who follows the teachings of Jesus and makes herself available to help many of the elderly in gracious ways. We should all welcome Pam Walker. She has been a teacher in the public school system for over 30 years, but still allows time for many Christian endeavors. Thanks for one more good person in this modern day.

    Well, August always has been a hot month. Just keep repeating to yourself, “It’s better than an ice storm.” It also helps to remember that there was a time without air conditioning.

    Right now, every high school football team in Kentucky is undefeated.

    It is that time of eternal optimism where many teams and their fans are hoping to catch the lightning to transform a bad team into a contender. Going from 2-8 to 8-2 (or some reasonable facsimile thereof) isn’t likely but it happens enough that fans always have hope the week of the opener.
