Partisanship re: Ask What You Can Do for Your Commonwealth
Comment in reference to: Victoria Pike: Applauds those voluntarily cleaning rights-of-way
By Ed Waggener
After a photo of private citizens maintaining State Rights-of-Way to Country Club Standards in the New Columbia/Greater Bliss area, two letters and more comments ensued. It started with a photo captioned, "Ask Not What Your Commonwealth Can Do for You . . ." which received a ringing endorsement from known Democrat Miss Victoria, urging others to follow suit, lend a hand, and manicure roadsides along their property lines.
The article asked for comments.and finding others doing Good Works and telling on them.
Didn't expect it to take on a partisan edge, but it has. Got a letter yesterday afternoon which contained this thought:
" . . . Democrats are picking up and trying to keep our state going strong and our county looking like a Work Ready Community."Looking up and down the KY 61 and KY 80 roadsides in New Columbia/Greater Bliss, it's hard to argue with his statement.
But do the Democrats really in Adair County really do more pro bono work than their Republicans. Is the party of Happy Chandler, Pete Walker, Grover Gilpin and Ben Hadley really superior in good works?
Or is the party of Eisenhower, Martin Rowe, Ronald Reagan,, Dr. Nell, and Terry Hadley just as giving and public spirited, when it comes to taking care of Rights-of-Way?
Comments welcome, in civil discourse context of course. This is after all, Sunday.
