Letters

  • Letter: Protect our horses

    In a state where horses are supposed to be loved they are being sent to slaughter. There is no way it can be euthanasia. According to Dr. Lester Friedlander, DVM and former chief USDA inspector: "The captive bolt is not a proper instrument for the slaughter of equids, these animals regain consciousness 30 seconds after being struck, they are fully aware they are being vivisected." Visit www.vetsforequinewelfare.org for a White paper giving facts. See the FOIA from USDA there or at www.kaufmanzoning.net for proof of abuses at auctions, during transportation and slaughter.

  • Letter: Don't talk down to parents

    I debated about writing this letter for awhile. I decided this needed to be addressed.
    I had a meeting set up with MCHS Principal Stacey Hall. When I got to his office I peaked my head in the door and asked if he was ready for me. Mr. Hall pushed back in his chair, shrugged his shoulders and said, "Yep." I knew at this point the meeting was not going to go well.

  • Letter: Community showed support for play

    On behalf of Kentucky Classic Theatre, I wish to show my appreciation to the people of Lebanon, Springfield and surrounding areas for their generous support of the melodrama "Lovely in Danger." It is not trite, nor insincere to admit that the show owed its success to this truly welcoming community and the help of many in it.

  • Letter: Stand for freedom

    "Government being instituted for the common benefit, protection, and security of the whole community, and not for the private interest or class of men; therefore, whenever the ends of government area perverted, and public liberty manifestly endangered, and all the other means of redress are ineffectual, the people may, and of right out to reform the old, or establish a new government."

  • Letter: Put it in God's hands

    I am writing to you about a letter I read in the paper two weeks ago. I was very disappointed to hear Anthony Epps wished he had never moved back here. Well, the truth is it made me mad. This community supported him for years. I looked up to him and I am older than he is. I know for a fact that The Lebanon Enterprise supported him, too. I just think he needs to put his problems in God's hands and not take it out on the community.

  • Letter: The Party of 'NO'

    The Party of "NO" 

    The Republican Party has utilized the filibuster three times more than any Senate in history in order to thwart any legislation that might help the American people... believing that voters will oust the incumbent president as long as the economy sucks.

     

    The Party of "MEAN" 

    Cheers the idea that someone without health insurance should be allowed to die.

  • Letter: Historic solution to a historic problem

    Congress has an opportunity this week to make a historic decision that would permanently change the culture of spending in Washington. Our nearly $15 trillion of accumulated debt is a threat to our nation's economic recovery, our national security and the welfare of future generations. 

    We have already succeeded in changing the debate in Washington from "How much can we spend?" to "How much can we cut?" Now, we must go even further and pass a Balanced Budget Amendment.

  • Letter: Treated differently
  • Letter: Raising awareness for adoption

    November is Adoption Awareness month. In recognition of this unique way in which to become a family white ribbons will be worn. I ask that all of you who are touched by adoption to please wear a white ribbon during the month of November.  If you see someone wearing a white ribbon, please ask him/her how adoption has affected his/her life. If you are interested in learning more about adoption, call 1-800-928-4303.

  • Letter: Providing health care at home

    More than 11 million Americans receive home delivered health care from home health providers. In their honor, I would like to join the National Association for Home Care and Hospice in celebrating November as National Home Care Month. My focus is to increase awareness in both the community and among health care professionals, to educate on the criteria and indicators for home care utilization and to express gratitude for business we have and will receive.
