YourTurn - 3/17/08

Watch for YourTurn normally scheduled to air at the end of Heartland News at Noon on Mondays and Fridays, at the end of Heartland News at 10:00 on Saturday nights, and following The Breakfast Show on Sunday mornings.

Ron Payne from Paducah:
"Mike Smythe and I have had our disagreements mainly on second amendment rights for private citizens.  I am in complete agreement with his comments on red lights and cameras (3/2/08-Red Light Cameras).  To ticket the owner of a car not having any idea who is driving is ridiculous beyond belief.

John Kakalia from Sedgewickville:
"The viewpoint expressed by the Park Hills police department on Senate Bill 864 which will allow a $7.00 charge on every ticket to go towards the officer's retirement represents a kickback at taxpayer expense.  This bill will promote police corruption...if police want a retirement that their communities don't provide then I suggest they save like the rest of us Americans or find different employment."

Ray Doc Hechler from Marion:
"The term 'veterans preference' is supposed to give us the chance to get back into the work force and thereby begin or continue to resume our prior non-military career.  In a word, BULL!  I just sent off my 50th teaching resume and unless I am very mistaken, once again I will get nothing back.  I do not even get a drop dead letter.  What did we go to the wars for?  Many nights I will not eat so our family can...will it change or can it change?  I am not optimistic it will."

David Christ from Cobden, Illinois:
"I think our young recruits...would have better things on their minds than the drinking age. (2/10/08-South Carolina Alcohol Bill)  People don't (give) credence to how unsure our future is, yet we fritter our lives away.  Thanks to Mike Smythe and KFVS12 for ViewPoint and YourTurn for giving the public a chance to speak out. This is Great Stuff!"
