  • Save social security

     I don’t know if I am hearing this right about proposals in Washington, D.C. to cut Social Security to reduce a deficit it did not cause. Social Security is critically important for American people of all ages. Are they saying when you become retirement age you cannot retire? Reason being there will not be any money left to give you so you can retire and live a peaceful life. Are they going to take it away from the ones that have already retired? What about Medicare benefits that would affect millions of people in America?

  • Miracle from God

     While on vacation in Nicksville, Ky., I had both legs injured. On returning home my car broke down and I was left sitting at a station with no money to get it repaired.

    After sitting there for seven hours, this young man came and asked me if I needed help. He looked at my car and said he would fix it for me at no charge.

    Mr. Warner and his wife, Debbie, took me to their home, provided me with a meal and a place to sleep. Mr. Warner worked on my car for hours and it was then that I found out he was a preacher and the cousin to singer Steve Warner.

  • Things that are important

     My name is Robert Huff. I think I am an average citizen. I served my country in World War II and I might add I was real proud to do so. I think being in the service has taught me many things about people. Most people want the same thing out of life and this is important to them. That one thing is money - the reason being  so the family can life a comfortable life.

  • Concerns about jail

     I recently spent twelve days in the Bullitt County Detention Center. During that time I saw several issues there that should be know to the taxpayers of the County and State.

    They provide cable TV to inmates. I can’t afford cable TV at home, and I am sure many people statewide cannot. If the States wants to reduce their budget that would be one step in the right directions. Also I was denied TV privileges and others with more harsh crimes were able to watch it.

  • Remember heat issues

     Summer is here and we’re already seeing the dreaded headlines about children who are left inside hot cars, leading to heat stroke and even death.

    Since 1998, at least 13 children in Kentucky have died as a result of being left inside sweltering vehicles while their parents or caregivers shop, go to work or run errands. It’s just another example of the abuse and neglect that plagues Kentucky’s children.

  • So frustrated

     I am frustrated thinking about what has happened throughout the world. The War, people getting killed, the flood, tornadoes, earthquakes. Most people do not want to get along with other people. They want everything for themselves. Children telling parents what to do. They control the parents.
