Golf carts have no business on roads
To the editor:
I think the use of a golf cart on public roadways is a great idea and should be passed once the carts are outfitted with the same required safety equipment as cars and trucks.
Once you add headlights, turn signals, a horn, air bags, stop lights, a windshield, emission control items and seat belts it’s a great idea.
The idea gets even better once you add insurance premiums into the mix.
Have you ever wondered why they are called golf carts? Because their main purpose is to carry golfers on grass and pavement on THE GOLF COURSE!
Having once worked at a country club and seeing golf carts which have rolled over accidently, I can’t imagine what a golf cart would look like after being hit by a 2 ton auto or worse, a railroad locomotive.
Just as alcohol and driving do not mix, neither does golf carts and other 4 wheeled motor vehicles.
I urge fiscal court members to not pass this ordinance and focus on local businesses growth.

Family is grateful to fire departments, community
To the editor:
On May 12, our home at 7323 Sideoats Drive was devastated by fire.
Throughout this tragedy we continue to be thankfully overwhelmed with the outpouring of support from our community.
A special thanks to members of the Pewee Valley, Worthington, and South Oldham fire departments.
They did more than respond to a fire call that night, by giving us direction and most of all, saving a piece of furniture crafted by my dad.
The Middleton Family, Crestwood
