Vicki Aubrey Welch looks like a hard-working person who wants her community to thrive, and being a nurse, she understands that healthy people make a healthy community. I think the politicians who do honest hard work to get things the community needs done and taken care of deserve to be recognized for the effort to get progression moving. Hawkins is trying to advance his political career; it’s obvious with his track record. He will do what he wants to get what he wants. Mrs. Welch, you go girl! Everyone at any job should receive credit for honest effort and hard work when trying to make things better for the common good of the environment in which they work and live. Tiffy Lafferty, LouisvilleChanges and QuestionsAttn: Ricky L. Jones:Only those who are unwilling to listen carefully to what Obama said are the ones still questioning why he never left the church. Obama rejected Wright’s divisive comments in his speech. But he also explained why he did not leave the church. He said that he could no more disown his pastor than he could the black community, or his white grandmother. His point being that he does not share the prejudiced views of Wright or his grandmother, he condemns them.

They are (had) a pre-sale open only to people living in the Louisville area. I would like to commend them on actually taking my complaint to heart and doing something about it.McKinley R. Moore, LouisvilleFired Up, IndeedIn response to Rep. Kathy Stein’s comments regarding the campus gun bill (LEO, Jan. 30), I would just like my fellow citizens to note how this is really the epitome of this government in a nutshell. Stating, “The General Assembly doesn’t need to get into the business of safety management,” she is absolutely correct. However, this does demonstrate the fact that the government is under no obligation to protect us. Governmental security forces, be them local police, the Army, Navy or Marines, are put in place in order to protect the state itself, while it remains the bureaucracy’s job to decide what the best way for you to live your life would be. I urge everyone to stand up for your rights and arm yourselves before the nanny state decides you’re really in no position to defend yourself from violence.In the same issue, while Ricky Jones goes about touting the wonders of John Edwards as the candidate for change, I feel he has been grossly ill-advised. Especially seeing that (Edwards) has since dropped out of the race. I encourage anyone who feels they are pretty good at making decisions on how to run their lives to take a look at the Ron Paul campaign. Liberty-minded values are truly a change from our current socialist predicament. Edwards and the handful of like-minded, power-hungry Democrats and Republicans getting all the media attention are essentially the same product, just less limelight. Jones had it right in his column, saying, “If you really want change, the best chance for it this time ... is a white man.” He was only incorrect in referring to Edwards as that man. Ron Paul is the only candidate for true, liberty-minded, constitutional-based freedom — a real change.Jimmy Flahetry, Louisville

LEO apologizes to Mr. Boada.
