Years ago, I remember Vacation Bible School and the song, "Oh Let the Sunshine in . . ."
It was sunshine to my heart when I read in the March 21 issue of the Olive Hill Times that the local TV access may return in Olive Hill. However, this issue of re-starting the cable access channel has been in the news before. I sincerely commend the Olive Hill Chamber of Commerce for their re-newed interest in this worthwhile community project.
In the article, it explained the way the cable access board came into existence. The purpose of the Federal Suit that I filed in 2002 was because the City of Olive Hill blocked the airing of a program where City officials were raising gas rates without much notice to the public. Federal Judge Hood ruled properly because I felt that the community access (as well as any news outlet) should be free from the control of City Hall and let the people know what's going on and how taxpayer's money is being spent.
Because many years have passed, it would be proper (and probably legal) if all people who are on the board be reappointed (as per guidelines) or new people appointed to complete the board. The Independent Cable Access board is just
as it is named. It must be independent and serve to inform and enhance our community. I look forward to regular programming and airing of important governmental meetings.
"Oh Let the Sunshine in. . . "

This week, as we remember loved ones who have passed on, I would like to remind everyone not to forget any four legged friends who have passed on as well.
Research is helpful for wet/dry decision
I've had good conversations with those on both sides of the wet/dry issue including pastors and most agree this issue is not about religion except on an individual level.
Wet-dry vote will affect entire county
Most of us are acquainted with the phrase "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas." That must be the mindset of the powers that be who made the rule that only the Grayson precincts get to vote on the upcoming issue of 'wet or dry'.
Thanks to those involved in Carter school event
Special thanks to everyone for making Carter School: The Closing Bell such a memorable event. Personally and professionally, I could not have been more pleased.
Phone bill has too many add-ons
Just paid my phone bill. It started at $184.92. Quickly to that amount another 12 suckers were attached to the bill totaling $64.25 in extra charges. Hold your laughter until the end.
