• Letter: Beware of 'free' or 'cheap' software

    I want to share a small problem that seems to be occurring here in Kentucky as well as in our country. I am shocked at the amount of computer fraud and piracy which is taking place.
    Sure, that computer deal may seem great, but the real question is, “Are you getting a pirated copy?”
    Many local computer shops are offering some fantastic prices but it comes at a cost. If you or your friends get an illegal copy of an operating system or piece of software, game, or application, is it really worth the purchase? It is almost blatantly stolen!

  • Comical cartoon provoked scary thought

    I got a kick out of this week’s carton (editorial page, Nov. 10 issue), until I thought of who would take Obama’s place if he doesn’t come back. Joe Biden!
    Now that is a scary thought.

  • Violating rights are denying them

    In the Oct. 20, 2010 edition of The Casey County News, I read a letter written by Richard Treitz. In part, Mr. Treitz stated that his rights can be violated, but cannot be taken away.
    I see things just a bit differently. My view is, if my rights are violated, then they have been denied me. Therefore in essence, they have been taken from me.
    I strongly support our Federal Constitution and Bill of Rights. In recent years, it seems to me that our Constitution has less meaning and earns less respect, than ever before in our history. This gives me great consternation.

  • Why aren’t alcohol suppliers responsible?

    Several times a month a person, under the age of 21, is arrested for a DUI. Each time I read this I take a moment to wonder:
    —In a dry county, where are they getting the alcohol from?
    —Who is purchasing the alcohol?
    —And why isn’t the adult that has purchased the alcohol, or the establishment that served the drinks responsible?
    What are we teaching our young? And when will it stop? As adults, we need to step up, become accountable, and help our young grow old, not risk their life.
