LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —
To the editor:
Friday, Aug. 27, The Sentinel-Echo published a guest editorial from the Joplin (Mo.) Globe, subject: “The Wisdom of Compromise,” which had to be addressed.
First and foremost, the United States of America is a constitutional republic, not a theocracy. Religion should never be a factor in any decisions involving the people of the United States.
The guest editorial stated supporters of building an Islamic Culture Center, with a prayer sanctuary, near the Sept. 11, 2001, aerial assault in lower Manhattan, New York City, were considered by some to be shy of being traitors.
Regarding traitors, the state of Missouri should be familiar with producing probably the worst traitor in the history of the United States — former President Harry S. Truman.
The treasonous act was the recognition of the occupation of Palestine by Zionist terrorists, as the socialist country of Israel.
Said action, in Palestine, by Zionists prior to May 1948 took the United States in to the greatest economic depression in its history. What’s worse is that every American military death or injury in the Middle East since Truman’s day of infamy was/is due to Truman’s treason and U.S. foreign policy.
And, if the editors at Zionist controlled newspapers recall, the stated reason for the Sept. 11, 2001, aerial attack was the then presence of U.S. military forces in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the occupation of Palestine by Israeli forces.
My fellow Americans, it was not or is not the Arabs of Islam that initiate terrorism. The original terrorist in Palestine (Canaan) was Moses, a Hebrew Arab.
Compromise will not work with Zionist terrorists. Diplomatic force instigated by the average American in the November 2010 and 2012 national elections can end the turmoil in the Middle East. Congress has to be replaced with Americans.

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.
