News Outlook Your Hometown Newspaper November 01, 2012 - 5 Dear Editor, stand how the people in "You can have a cattle the coal regions of east- farm but we will bank- ern Kentucky feel when rupt it', "you can have a processing factory but we will bankrupt it", "you can have a construction business but we will bankrupt it". If these words had been said by President Obama in re- gard to our Bath County businesses, almost no one would vote for him. So, we need to under- they heard President Obama say that with "Cap and Trade" legisla- tion, we could build coal generated power plants but they would be bank- rupted even though elec- tricity rates would of ne- cessity "skyrocket" (his word). You can also under- stand the frustration of our mountain neighbors when Ben Chandler en- dorsed the Obama agen- da and voted for "Cap and Trade". This could argu- ably be the worst vote ever cast by a Kentucky legislator against his own Kentucky people which would put thousands out of work and send electric rates through the roof. Of course, in his twenty years as a career politi- cian, Chandler has made over two million dollars from taxpayers and he may not worry about electric bills. Also included in the "Cap and Trade" bill was a little known provision to tax farmers for their livestock that would pro- duce methane gas from cow manure. What a taxi That would affect Bath County farmers. It is a dangerous time in America when our government gets so big and so intrusive that they can determine which businesses they will save and which they will save and which businesses they will "bankrupt". The free enterprise system and small busi- nesses are in the balance in this election and for us the choice is bigger and more costly govern- ment with higher taxes, more regulatory oppres- sion and less freedom, or smaller government, lower taxes, reasonable regulations and more in- dividual freedom. For the above reasons and many more besideff, I support Mitt Romney for President and Andy Barr fob 6th district con- gressman and I ask you to do likewise. Sincerely, Lowell C. Rice Dear'Editor, After much thought and prayer I decided to write this letter. It's a beautiful day today. It is great to be alive and enjoy the peace and freedom we have in our small town of Owings- viUe, Bath County, Ken- tucky. Having lived much of my 82 years in Owings- ville, I love the people and community spirit we can feel here. I have been an active member of the Slate Avenue Owingsville First Church of God for 58 years. My first pastors were Dale Whalen and his wife Agnes. Their special love and witness made it a wonderful place to fellow- ship. My children, grand- children, and now great- grandchildren have been raised in this church. We as Americans enjoy the freedom of speech and freedom of press to write or say whatever we wish. This is what sepa- rates a democracy from a dictatorship. Unfortu- nately these privileges are often used in hurtful and damaging ways. This is especially true when po- litical.Views are expressed in local, state, and national races to distort the truth. In thinking about some of the money, time, and effort being put forth in our community involving politics and the selection of one candidate or politi- cal party over another, I believe that if this effort of time and money was spent raising money and aiding New Hope Clinic, Christian Social Services, Salvation Army, or per- haps even giving a raise to our underpaid work- ers, they wouldn't have to worry about next month's rent now would they? Also think what such a combined effort of all Christians and churches coming together for a spiritual revival of love, unity, and care would mean. The church mes- sage from Christ de- mands nothing less than this. If we believe God's work we know when this happens the church will see the fruit of love and mercy. Of course whether this happens depends on all of us putting aside our differences and jealousies and putting others first. As spirit filled Christians we have to learn to be tolerant of others beliefs and views, giving them the credibility of having enough wisdom to make their own choices, wheth- er we agree with them or not. As to the present race between Andy Barr and Ben Chandler, I have no remarks to make about Andy Barr, only that he probably is a worthy and capable Candidate. In my opinion any person who has the courage to place his name 'on a ballot for any political office, know- ing that he and his fam- ily immediately become open targets for anything the press or people in general vdsh to say about them, has to be brave. As to Ben Chandler, presently serving as our 6th District Represen- tative and seeking re- election, fact check: his constituents in Congress consider him a person who can't be pigeon-holed or poisoned political part- nership. He always votes to defend the shrinking Middle Class. He resides in Versailles, Kentucky with his wife Jennifer and three children, where they attend the Pisgah Presbyterian Church. The past week a phy- sician of mine who also lives in Versailles told me he knew Ben and often saw him shopping in the grocery store, and also saw him at ball games. Ray and I personally knew Ben's grandfather, A. B. "Happy" Chandler who served as governor of Kentucky twice and U.S. Senator once. Ma- jor accomplishments of his second term were enforcing the integration of public schools, and es- tablishing the U.K. Medi- cal Center of Kentucky which was later named for him. It has become one of the major cancer hospi- tals in the nation, known throughout the country. Having known the Chandler family for many years and their concerns for the underdog and common man "I WILL VOTE FOR BEN CHAN- DLER NOV. 6th". If you aren't bored yet I have a few more thoughts on this subject. As I stood in the cemetery today and looked at the VA marker on the foot of my late husband's grave which is engraved with his name "Ray Freemon Bailey 1925-2012", the words jumped out to me - "Ray" "free-man". Yes, he was a free man; he fought com- bat as a tail-gunner on the air-craft carrier Bon-Hom- me Richard during WWII to be that! When he came home and later became active in politics, some races he lost, some he won, but his friends were still friends, family still family. Not once in those years did I ever hear him belittle or judge anyone who didn't support him or his politi- cal party. He was an independent thinker who chose to make up his mind about issues - giving others the same fight without undue influence from anyone to control them. We as Americans take for granted our freedom, forgetting the many brave men and women who gave their life's blood to preserve it. The fight to vote as we choose without fear oi persecution or prejudice is not only a privilege but a "DUTY". I urge every registered voter to go and vote for the candidate of their choice November 6th. If you are concerned with what happens in Ameri- ca, Kentucky, and Bath County - VOTE! VOTE! VOTE! After all the signs come down and the dust settles, we can congratulate the winners, console those who lose, then begin to unite, coming together, loyal Americans and good citizens, working togeth- er to make our Country, State and County the best it can be. We will pray to- gether for leaders who have been elected by the majority that god will give them what they need to heal our country. Thank you for reading this.
