    Move forward with a proven leader

    I am a firm believer in the saying “May the work I’ve done speak for me.” If you plan to vote for a president and vice president who care about America then vote Obama/

    Endorsing Broadwater

    I am asking voters in the 5th Division Hardin County Schools board race to vote for Suzy Broadwater. She has remained faithful to the needs of this district with consideration to improving facilities and student achievement in our local schools.

    Republican philosophy failed before

    History is to be respected not repeated. Both our political parties seem to ignore the lessons we learned in the past and keep repeating them. Democrats have Vietnam; Republicans have Iraq and Afghanistan for their share of history.

    Defending families

    A key issue in November’s election briefly flashed into the spotlight during last Tuesday’s debate. Though virtually ignored by President Barack Obama and the media, former Gov. Mitt Romney’s stress on the importance of fostering marriages and families to stem the onslaught of violence in our country makes sense.

    Re-elect Broadwater

    Soon it will be time for Hardin County Schools Board elections and I would like to encourage you to re-elect Suzy Broadwater to the 5th Division seat. Suzy has been a good voice for the north end of the county. She has been able to work with the current board and gets her point across calmly.

    Looming fiscal cliff

    Can you see the fiscal cliff coming on Jan. 1, 2013? You will if President Barack Obama wins re-election as he will not allow our current tax rates to continue unless the top tax brackets are raised to 39.6 percent.

    Both he and Vice President Joe Biden claim this is out of concern for “fairness” as they want the “millionaires and billionaires,” those who create wealth and jobs, to pay “their fair share.”

    Spina Bifida Awareness Month

    October is Spina Bifida Awareness Month. Spina bifida is the most common permanently disabling birth defect, affecting 166,000 Americans. Kentucky has one of the highest rates in the country.

    Spina bifida is a birth defect that results in the spinal cord protruding from a baby’s back. The back can be surgically closed before or after birth, but damage to the spinal cord can cause paralysis, hydrocephalus (fluid on the brain), bowel and bladder issues, and other challenges.

    Another bountiful harvest

    Twenty-five years ago this month, after the accidental death of my father-in-law, David Owsley, I wrote a letter to the editor of this same newspaper thanking people of our farming community for coming together and harvesting our crop.  I titled it “Harvest of Friends.”

    Political machinations

    Here we are less than one month from election day and the latest report from the Bureau of Labor shows a small increase of 114,000 jobs and a sharp drop of the unemployment rate to 7.8 percent. Jack Welch, former CEO of General Electric, immediately stated that the numbers had to be “cooked.” There also have been questions as to why the Bureau of Labor had changed the way they counted part time workers and how they revised July and August figures upward for government employees.
