LETTERS: Governor must take action on jailer issue

GLASGOW — Dear Editor,

When I first read Sunday’s (April 25) edition of The Daily Times I had every intention of responding to Ronnie Ellis’ article “UK Professor Gives Coal Crowd Something to Talk About,” and encouraging our community to read Silas House’s book, “Something’s Rising,” to learn more about the ill-effects of the coal industry’s use of mountaintop removal.

Instead, I find it necessary to respond to Jewell Lindsey’s letter to the editor, which attempts to blame Leland Cox’s sexual harassment charges not on him, but on the women he abused. How disgusting! I am sure anyone who has ever been abused could enlighten the writer on how degraded, frightened and powerless such abuse makes one feel. I am proud of those who reported the sexual harassment. I encourage our community to contact Governor Steve Beshear and ask him to remove Leland Cox from office.

Farmer’s Market move to BB&T; parking lot good

Dear Editor,

I’m happy to see Sustainable Glasgow has chosen the unused space behind BB&T.; And even though some folks were insistent about using the cultural center space, well, it just was not practical. I can understand why the cultural center board was reluctant with the decision for Sustainable Glasgow to use the grounds.

The cultural center, which is open on Saturday, would not have had any parking left for its patrons, sometimes consisting of large groups,( i.e., reunions, special programs, etc.), and SG vendors would have imposed, unknowingly, an extra, unnecessary burden on the museum staff and building. While its obvious customers for the BB&T; location will probably use the cultural center for some parking, it doesn’t create a direct impact on the museum. Of course, the argument could go back and forth, and in theory it sounded good, but I think in the long run, SG will find the BB&T; location a more suitable space than the museum parking lot and grounds could have ever been.
