  • Vote for Johnson-Gray ticket this November

    To the editor:
    My choice for president/vice president in 2012 will be Governor Gary Johnson and Judge Jim Gray.
    To many they may be a “third party choice,” a vote for or against the Democrat incumbents or the Republican challengers or even a wasted vote. To me, Gov. Johnson and Judge Gray are, simply, the best team for the job.
    Gov. Johnson’s plan for our nation’s debt is brutal but necessary. Massive federal spending cuts now. Submit a balanced budget now.

  • Vote to rescue America next month

    To the editor:
    In the early seventies, our old incumbents in Congress and OPEC limited oil production in American. That deal planted the seeds of the latest anti-American demonstrations in the Middle East.
    Where was the harm? OPEC would supply America with cheaper oil, our old incumbents would make money, OPEC would make money, gasoline would be cheaper, and environmentalists would rejoice. It was a win-win for everybody but those nasty American oil companies with their overpriced oil and outrageously high 40-cents-per-gallon gasoline.

  • Public officials have duty to represent

    To the editor:
    Two years ago, my husband turned 65 and registered for Medicare. In November of the same year, he had hip surgery.
    After the surgery, we received a $61,000 doctors’ bill. After contacting Medicare, I found they had made a mistake on the effective date. After weeks of pleading with Social Security to correct the error, I turned to our congressmen and senators.

  • Battle of Perryville steeped with historical importance

    Oct. 8 marks the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Perryville, which ultimately led to who would control Kentucky during the Civil War.
    Kentucky, a border state, was very important to both the Union and Confederate forces. The Union victory ultimately helped persuade President Abraham Lincoln to issue his Emancipation Proclamation.

  • Winter is coming, so be prepared

    Wow, burgoo is over and October is here.
    What happened to September? I swear time speeds up the closer we get to winter.
    The 30 days each had  24 hours, but they just seemed to go by in a fraction of the time. While I’m not behind on my winter prep schedule, I do feel a certain urgency pushing me to get even more done. All because I don’t like cold, yucky weather.
