    Sen. Paul’s view on educational cuts


    Recently I signed an online petition to our elected federal senators and representatives asking that federal funding for education not be cut. I receipted a prompt E-mail reply from Sen. Rand Paul. I thought your readers might want to know his views on education. And I quote from his letter:

    Good for Martinrea
    The leadership of General Manager Shawn Adelsberger and the quality of the product produced by the employees of Martinrea Heavy Stamping led to the recent announcement regarding expansion of employment at their local plant.
    As a result of this allegiance to excellence, Gov. Steve Beshear’s administration possessed the confidence in Martinrea and its management and employees to grant funds to expand metal stampings and assemblies for the next generation of Ford Escape.

    About SPLC’s response

    A hidden agenda
    Mark Potok in his My Word (“Calling a lie a lie is not suppressing free speech,” Feb. 2) appears to have a hidden agenda, just as does his organization, the Southern Poverty Law Center. On the surface this group appears to be fighting the good fight to correct the ills of our society.

    Illegal immigration problem

    The federal government is responsible for protecting the borders of the United States (“Immigration bill raises questions,“ Jan. 14). There are 20 million-plus illegal aliens in the U.S., an estimated 50 million projected within just a few decades. The federal government has failed to protect the borders.

    Immigration issue

    Thank you, Sarah Fouts, for your contribution of the My Word column (“ Immigrants are people, no matter their status,” Jan. 18). Mark Twain once said, “I have nothing to worry about the audiences I speak to. They will believe anything I tell them, except the truth.” You have presented readers with multiple layers of truth, with factual information and thoughtful discussion of the current illegal immigration issue in this country.

    Idle patrol cars burn fuel

    I recently drove by Thorntons in Shelbyville and happened to notice that a few police cars parked there. This is not the first time that I have seen these cars parked there.
    On my way back (about 10 minutes later), I drove into Thorntons, and to my surprise the  cars – from Shelbyville Police Department and the Kentucky State Police – were  still there. And when I went into the store, I found four policemen having a lovely chat. It seemed that they where having a good time!

    Landlords beware

    As a landlord, I've been through evictions before, as I'm sure most of you have. But it is a shame that when you try to help someone, you get stabbed in the back. The fact is that the law is on the renter's side. Renters are given 30 to 60, sometimes even 90 days, to leave the premises. That can add up to a bit of money, and our payments have to be made on time. I won't mention any names.

    Smoking ban is good idea

    Our local legislatures, Rep. Brad Montell and Sen. Paul Hornback, said they aren't interested in passing a statewide anti-smoking bill. This bill should be voted on and passed. Why?
    According to the National Cancer Society, secondhand smoke contains over 4,000 chemical compounds of which more than 60 are known or suspected to cause cancer.
    Secondhand smoke in the US each year is responsible for:
    •    An estimated 46,000 non-smokers dying from heart disease.
