  • No bailout for me

    No one is bailing out my credit cards, my truck loan or my mortgage. When I mess up, I pay for it or I lose what I have.

    They messed up, they made money and lots of it. Now it's time for them to pay, not the people.

    No bailout for them. It's time to get back to basics.

  • No more rubber stamps, please

    Please do not rubber stamp another piece of legislation for this administration. Especially not a corporate bailout that does nothing to prevent this from happening in the future and nothing to help the average American.

    We do not wish to be saddled with this debt in the future. We need our legislators to investigate this system failure and draft legislation to protect us from this type of failure in the future.

    Our President wants the Congress and the Senate to allow him to be the decider, but the people do not wish to support that way of thinking any longer.

  • Agree with Holmes' recognition

    I totally agree with LaVada McClain's Letter in the Sept. 25 issue of the CKNJ that we need to have a J.B. Holmes Day.

    I also think that there should be a street named after Holmes. We have a lot of streets named after other people from our community who have done some great things and J.B. should be no different. He totally conducted himself with dignity and showed great sportsmanship as he helped lead the USA team to victory in the Ryder Cup.

  • Elderly deserve our attention

    Aren't old people grand? They are wonderful people to be around and have lived through much of history being made. They have seen a lot through the years and have given of themselves over the same.

    The elderly should not be pushed to the wayside as if an inconvenience and insignificant by the young. I've seen some cases of this going on and it is sad. The elderly deserve the best of love and care in their advancing years. There is also so much we can learn from their experiences in life.

  • Poor customer service is too common

    In response to the "Poor customer service" letter in the Sept. 18 issue, I'm sure I know what establishment she is talking about. I, too, spend a lot of money at this establishment.

  • A playground for everyone

    Most of us are familiar with the phrase "No Child Left Behind." Parents of children in our schools would agree that everything possible should be done to ensure that no child, especially one's own, should miss out on becoming a healthy and well-educated student in our community. This applies to his physical well being as well as his educational one.

  • Volunteer for the home team

    Fall in southern and eastern Kentucky is a magical time. Fall foliage paints our hillsides with color. Driving through this scenery can be breathtaking.

    Unfortunately, litter spoils the views in some places. Please volunteer to solve that problem during October, which is Roadside PRIDE Month in southern and eastern Kentucky.

  • McCain will lead

    John McCain's leadership qualities are needed to steer this country through difficult economic times and threats to our national security.

    McCain can be trusted to lead us because he has been vetted. As a naval officer of 22 years and with 26 years in Congress, he has the executive experience to administer our government and accomplish our domestic and international objectives.

  • Illegal aliens add to gas crisis

    The question asked was "Should we as consumers decrease the demand for oil in order to bring the supply up and hopefully bring prices down?"

    I have a much better way to bring gas prices down. Deport the 30-plus million illegal aliens living here in America, bring our troops home and put them on the Mexican border and let them actually protect our borders.

    You get rid of 30 million people, that's 30 million people who aren't using gas or buying petroleum products. You would also cut down on other ailments that America suffers from.

  • Strong fundamentals in tough times

    On Sept. 6, 2008, John McCain said there were "tough times all over America." In recent days, he has repeatedly said, "The fundamentals of the economy are strong."

    Aren't massive job losses, soaring deficits, devaluation of the dollar, rising unemployment, bank failures and the mortgage meltdown basic "fundamentals" of the economy?

    Here's a question I would ask him: "Which is it, John? How do you have a fundamentally strong economy when the aforementioned economic indicators have all headed south?"
