LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —
To the editor:
The recent attack propaganda by the liberal (or if you prefer to label it “progressive”) news media and the Democratic candidate against pro-constitutional Senate candidate Republican Rand Paul reminds students of history of the tactics employed by the primary socialist of the World War II era. His most famous quote was, “If you tell a lie often enough, people will believe it.” His name was Adolph Hitler.
We presently have a chance, quite possibly the last one, to turn our country around. If the voters can see through this maze of misinformation and select those candidates across this nation who understand the very critical situation which confronts America, we can begin to move our government back to the fine document which provided our people with the freedom to build the country which has given so many opportunities to seekers of the “American dream.”
For the past several years, some elected officials have scoffed at the United States Constitution. One president actually referred to it as, “It’s just a piece of paper.” Apparently, it interferes with the personal, selfish plans of the officials. Originally authored by James Madison, the United States Constitution is the planet’s most unique document because of the liberty it gives to the individual states and to our people. Let’s elect the candidates who will work to return our government to the Constitution, the document that has been admired around the world. Dr. Rand Paul is one of those dedicated, knowledgeable individuals who will uphold our Constitution. It doesn’t matter how we are registered to vote — Independent, Democrat or Republican — but it is of great importance that we recognize that this election is crucial to our future, as well as to future generations.

Looking for a miracle on Broad Street
A reader sends out a plea to help save the Pennington House.
Dogs could hurt children in subdivision
(Recently) my cat died at the animal hospital, because dogs are able to run loose in the area — three dogs, two of them without a dog tag one. The other has a tag which was stolen from around my dog’s neck and placed on the third. I called the dog pound, when I learned there is no dog tag required in Laurel County. If so, why did I have to pay for one on my dog? They said they couldn’t do anything unless I was able to catch the dogs, and then call the animal warden to come get them. I called Noah Baker, the magistrate for my area, and never received an encouraging word.
Thank you to participants in first 5K for Justice
We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who participated in the first annual 5K Race for Justice on Oct. 9. We at the London Department of Public Advocacy and the Commonwealth Attorney’s Office are truly appreciative of all of the runners who came out, and would like to particularly honor the American veterans who ran with us that morning, showing their support for London’s Welcome Home to Vietnam Veterans. We are honored to have had the opportunity to host our race in support of that event.
Pennington House could be a bed and breakfast
I know we are going to save the Pennington House. That’s a no-brainer!
Churches challenged to give $100 per month to shelter
My name is Brother Johnny Jervis. I have pastured in and around Laurel County for many years. I am a former board member of the Christian Shelter for the Homeless Inc. in London, and I continue to support that ministry.
Former resident proud of his hometown
My wife and I visited friends and relatives in your area for 10 days in early October, as we have done many times over the years. I grew up in Laurel County but left at age 18 and never lived here since. That is not necessarily by my choosing, but career choices lead me to other places. However, Laurel County has always been “home” to me.
Trying to enforce ‘good prevails’ lessons of life
We have been living in the London area for the last three years. We noticed early on there is a problem with some in the community not following parking laws in the handicap and fire lanes.
Vietnam memorial helped honor sacrifices made
I am writing to thank Buddy Butler and the others involved for organizing the memorial activities for our Vietnam veterans.
Girl Scouts enjoy ‘the Hannah experience’ too
I wanted to express my delight at Tara Kaprowy’s “As bright as the sun” article in Friday’s Sentinel.
