    VA not quite underfunded

    Breathe Ken, Breathe…

    I wish my good friend Ken Pratt would slow down a bit.

    Thanks for first responders’ event

    I would like to thank Shelbyville First Baptist Church for putting on a great program for Shelby County.

    Sept. 8-10 they had a complete program for first responders in Shelby County. This weekend was a fantastic experience not only for first responders but also for all citizens.

    Successful summer reading program


    Letter to the Editor

    I would like to thank all of the Shelby County children and youth, along with their parents, grandparents and caregivers, who participated in our “Build a Better World” summer reading program for 2017. We had more than 1,300 children and youth sign up for the summer reading program, with almost 800 completing the program. Well done!

    Stunned by starlings


    Many of us enjoy walking around our lovely neighborhood of Country Manor. However, around 8:30 every evening we are disgusted by the swarms of thousands of starlings in the unmowed/unkept property located at the north end.

    Compound the noise with the nasty odor of their waste that is also evident, and it's quite repulsive AND unhealthy.

    Questionable reports of pension shortfall


    In a recent story about Moody’s credit rating agency downgrading Kentucky’s status, the Lexington Herald-Leader reported the total pension shortfall at $37 billion.

    Moody’s own pension shortfall estimate is $70 billion.

    That’s how they determined the downgrade.

    Is there any civility?

    In reference to the Letter to the Editor “Less than civil?” on page A4 of the July 17, 2017 issue of The Sentinel-News.

    That anyone who would dare come to the Shelby County Human Rights Commission meeting unless you agree with our agenda, you are NOT welcome.

    “Our meeting,” as stated, stinks to high heaven of exclusivity. “Our meeting” is for only those who agree with the commission.

    Losing our human rights

    The recent railroading of our now infamous Governor Matt Bevin and Kentucky’s Congress on Saturday, Jan. 7, pushing seven highly controversial pieces of legislature down our throats, has left me and thousands of others furious.

    Find compassion, respect for each other

    It is frustrating and saddening to see in letters to this paper the anger and disrespect with which some people view others across the political divide.

    I believe that the vast preponderance of Americans on both sides of the political spectrum are people of good will who want the best for our country.

    I like and trust those people that I know personally who did not vote as I did for president.

    “The Greatest of All Time”

    Dear Editor:

    My brother and I went to Louisville last Friday to watch Muhammad Ali’s casket pass by. I will never forget that day. An overwhelming feeling of love and peace pervaded; everyone united in their grief and respect for “The Greatest of All Time.”

     Conserving all our natural resources

    Dear Editor:

    With the 47th annual observance of Earth Day, this is a great time to explore more effective ways of slowing climate change and conserving Earth’s natural resources for future generations.
