Jon Halsey: Somerset's plan to retail gas is totally wrong

Personal commentary
Comments re article 67831: Gas/Link Story on City of Somerset KY plan to sell gasoline

By Jon Halsey

While the intentions are laudable, the course of action is totally wrong.

Government should not be in Business and certainly not in direct competition with citizens.

Services that cannot be provided or would be extremely inefficient for private enterprise to provide are an acceptable and necessary function of government. Operating a "For Profit" business competing with multiple private outlets is a road that should never be traveled.

Carol Perkins: Thoughts after studying MCHS Class of '64 picture

A column on the way things were, and aging, prompted by an emotional look at a framed picture of her Metcalfe County High School graduating class of 1964 and by the Diane Sawyer interview with Hillary Clinton. In the class photo, saw faces of classmates who were gone: 'Although we have not lost as many as some of the classes surrounding ours, each one was emotional because each one was a character in my life's story. School was like a story to me.' and in Diane Sawyer she saw how a beautiful young woman had become an even more attractive one over the years. Next earlier Carol Perkins column Carol Perkins: Grannies just wanta have fun, Posted June 7, 2014
Carol Perkins column, which most often runs on Sundays, is posted today because it fits so well with the topic on today's 'Susan & Carol Unscripted' on FM 99.1: Old Edmonton.

By Carol Perkins

The other day one of my former students came into my store (Main Street Screenprinting in Edmonton) and studied the huge picture of my graduating class on my back wall. Each of us girls was draped in black robes and the guys in black coats and ties. This picture once graced the walls of the high school but when the building became a middle school, framed pictures were given away and I was lucky to get this one. She was very complimentary of my picture. I never really liked it because I guess I thought I was plain. Don't we all at that age? I could certainly see others much better looking than I was.
