McConnell elected to represent state
I have read several letters in this paper saying U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell should make changes and vote more liberal now because President Obama won a second term. Obama winning the election is supposed to be a sign that elected Republican officials have lost touch with what voters want.
First off, Senator McConnell was elected by the voters of Kentucky, not Ohio or New York or California. The majority of Kentucky voters voted for Mitt Romney, not Obama! Although President Obama received considerably more electoral votes, his margin of popular votes was much smaller.
Senator McConnell, who was elected by and who serves the voters of Kentucky, should do what the majority of Kentucky voters want! The majority of Kentucky voters voted for Romney, not Obama. Therefore, it is safe to say that Kentucky voters have shown with their votes that they want no part of Obamacare or the Obama socialist agenda.
If Kentucky voters want a senator who supports Obama’s agenda, then in two years Senator McConnell will not be re-elected. Until then, the majority of Kentucky have shown with their votes that Senator McConnell should carry on with the agenda Kentucky voters elected him on.

Grayson doesn‘t need alcohol sales
This is in reference to the petition to make part of Grayson wet.
Lest everyone believe everyone in Grayson is totally naive, let me say that alcohol is just another drug. We have spent housands of dollars fighting drugs and trying to save our children from addiction to drugs. Now some want to legalize a drug inside our city limits.
As for prosperity, for every dollar we realize, we will spend $3 dealing with the side effects of this drug. Throwing our children under the bus is not progress.
I may not be cool or modern, but I am smart enough to know when I am well off. So If you don’t want this, get up and go vote against it on Jan. 15, Mark your calendar.
