    Murders at Navy base
    The tragic news of this event brought back some memories. The killings occurred at the Bureau of Ship, that controls the design and construction of naval vessels. Back during WW2,  the Bureau of Ships and the Bureau of Personnel, both in that Washington D. C., naval base, were thought to be ideal duty, since it was considered a safe place, where no one was shooting at you.

    Supports schools


    Well, Mr. [Tony] Harover, I see you have expressed your opinion once again in our local newspaper (“School tax plan,” Letters to the editor, Aug. 28). While I certainly support your right to do so, I strongly disagree with your premise. To hold the superintendent and our school board hostage to your opinion is wrong thinking.

    Pass Fairness Ordinance

    There's been a lot of talk lately about gays and lesbians and whether or not we should pass a Fairness Ordinance to give "them" equal protection. Imagine that!

    Construction zone issues


    An article in The Sentinel-News (“Simpsonville safety concerns draw review,” July 24) about safety concerns in the construction area on Buck Creek Road and I-64 stated no accidents had occurred. I was involved in an accident on July 12 within the construction zone.

    Turning backwards

    In the last couple of weeks we had comments from Brad Montell and Paul Hornback, and although I respect their input to our community concerning the intersections at I-64 and KY 53 and KY 55, I believe they both have missed the point of the problem. Left-hand turns are not going to work. The only type of left-hand turns that work are right-hand loops, like the one we had at Exit 32B that has been removed.

    UAW’s United effort

    How do you put a number on Living United…UAW 2383?

    As The Sentinel-News printed (“Martinrea sets United Way bar,” July 24) last week Metro United Way has kicked off the 2013 Shelby Campaign. It was through the blood, sweat and passion of the UAW 2383 Community Service Team at Martinrea Heavy Stamping that we were able to kick off with the force that we did.

    Religious perspective


    In response to Dave Charlton’s column (“How to decipher complex issue of marriage in U.S.” July 5), where in the bible does it say homosexuality is OK? Where in nature can this behavior be found? What does Paul have to say about homosexuality (Romans 1:18-32)? Mark 10:6-9, Matthew 19:4-6 and Genesis all speak of marriage being between one man and one woman. Matthew talks of divorce between husband (man) and wife (woman) being wrong, nothing about same-sex couples. How is same sex marriage fruitful?

    Our un-Fairness

    Letter writer Eugene Maynard wonders why we need a Fairness Ordinance in Shelbyville (“Why is Fairness ordinance needed,” Letters to the editor, June 12). He posits that everyone already has the right to patronize businesses, rent apartments and exist unharassed in our town. He is incorrect. Shamefully, if someone is merely suspected of being lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgendered, it is legal in most of
