    Dangerous interchanges

    Maybe I should just keep my mouth shut, like everyone else, but I’m not, so here goes:

    In praise of Puckett

     

    It was with great pleasure that I read Bonnie Gray’s excellent article on Duanne Puckett in The Sentinel-News (“Saying thanks to a legend,” MY WORD, May 29). I would like to add my own accolades to hers.

    Why is Fairness ordinance needed?

    The consideration of passage of a fairness ordinance by the city of Shelbyville puzzles me (“We need a Fairness Ordinance,” MY WORD, June 5). I was under the impression that laws were in existence to prevent any discrimination against the areas Ms. Ann-Lynn Ellerkamp categorized.

    Underage drinking ordinances

     

    Thank you for your recent article informing residents about the social host ordinance for Shelby County   (“Adult hosts of teen parties my be fined,” May 20). Providing information regarding this ordinance will hopefully begin a conversation among adults and youth on the harms associated with underage drinking.

    A flag from history

     

    On May 21, 1944, Navy Landing Ship Tanks (LST) 779 was launched by Dravo shipbuilders into the Ohio River at Pittsburgh. The ship came down the Ohio and Mississippi rivers to New Orleans, where she was commissioned, and went through the Panama Canal and sailed to Pearl Harbor, where on Dec. 7, 1941, the Japanese had bombed the ships in the harbor and damaged and sunk several of them. Many U.S. sailors had given their lives.

    Cheers for Beshear

     

    For the 300,000 Kentuckians living on the edge of the federal poverty line,  Gov. Steve Beshear’s action this week couldn’t come soon enough. And it makes a nice Mother’s Day surprise for everyone without health coverage who fears getting sick or hurt. Kentucky Youth Advocates reports an estimated 162,000 uninsured parents in Kentucky, and expanding Medicaid will provide 

    coverage to 97,000 of those parents.

    Decrying NBC’s comments

     

    General Electric Corp. Declares Homosexuality to be a "good thang." G.E. spokesman Matt Liar on NBC’s Today Show announced how wonderful an event that Jason Collins is "gay." Jason is a player in the NBA (never heard of him). He is apparently cut in the same mold as that creep Dennis Rodman and Kobe Bryant, not to mention O.J. All of these folks are terribly overpaid social pukes, including Matt.

    County needs recycling

     

    As I ponder what project to do for Earth Day this year, I can't help but think how disappointing our county government is to abandon the curbside garbage/recycling issue.  Offering garbage pickup and recycling at a lower price makes sense and helps protect the environment.

    I am not loyalty to any vendor, and I don't have time to compare prices.  The city and county can get a better rate than just one person.  This negotiated price should include recycling.
