  • Letter: MADD commends the Enterprise
  • Letter: Food program or conditioning?

    The government child feeding program could be helpful if an earthquake or other disruptive situation happens.

    But isn't it the responsibility of parents to feed their children?

    If a family needs food stamps, are they not available to fill a need? Where does the family responsibility rest?

    It seems to be a conditioning feeding system to control or encourage more young people to rely on the government for their daily bread.

  • Letter: Do courts violate the Constitution?

    The Fifth Amendment says many things, but in the middle it says, “... nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb.” That means you can’t be put on trial twice for the same offense.
    Now in Communist China and dictator Syria, their courts put people on trial over and over until they get the verdict they want. It’s called jury shopping!
    Why does the Kentucky court system do the same thing? I guess there is a dictator and Communist connection.

  • Letter: Animal shelter does good work

    As a founding member and current president of the Marion County Humane Society, I would like to commend and congratulate the staff and volunteers at the Marion County Animal Shelter for their excellent efforts on behalf of animals (and people) these past few years. My good friend, the late Georgia Duley (the original president), would be so proud and happy if she could see what the shelter has evolved into.

  • Letter: Appreciate your library

    I wonder if Marion County has any idea what a fine library they have, sitting right there on Main Street in Lebanon. I hadn’t been in it in years, and as I wandered around looking before the book-signing on Saturday, I marveled at what an excellent facility it had become over the years I’ve been away. I hope Marion Countians are justly proud of it.

  • Letter: Project Graduation: a success

    We would like to extend our appreciation on behalf of the 2001 Senior Class of Marion County High School and their parents for the gratuity extended by all who donated time, money and talents to Project Graduation. Putting this project together was a work of joy but the credit belongs to you because of your astounding generosity and support. Our seniors leave Marion County High School knowing they belong to a charitable community. We are grateful to the community for continuing this tradition.

  • Letter: Think for yourself

    With children being arrested for toy guns, I think parents should take a serious look at their educational and authority structure and its training.

    Apparently, the democratic habit of questioning authority or conventional wisdom could place your or your children in  conflict with “The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders”, fifth edition (DSM-V) to be published in 2013.

  • Letter: Superintendent pick no surprise
  • Letter: Vote Williams for Governor

    David Williams and Richie Farmer offer Republicans bold conservative leadership and an opportunity to change Frankfort from a liberal taxing administration to one of fiscal conservatism. Senator Williams, as our governor, will also turn back efforts to raise taxes  on small business.  He knows many small businesses are struggling and that raising taxes would sound a death knell.  Williams and Farmer will stand for business friendly policies.

  • Letter: Consider foster care

    May is National Foster Care Month, a time to shine the light on the foster care experience. Let's start with some figures:

    - More than 6,800 Kentucky children and youth are in out-of-home

    care, with 75 to 80 percent of those in foster care. Most are placed in temporary foster care due to parental neglect or abuse.

    - The average age of a child in care: 10.7 years.
