Dear Editor, I am writing to share an experience I had resulting from the purchase of Slick 50 Motor Oil at the Danville Wal-Mart store. After making my purchase, I had my oil changed at my regular service station, adding the Slick 50 to four quarts of regular motor oil. I paid the $25 charge and drove home. The next day I checked the oil level and found it was one quart low. I know the correct amount of oil was instilled because I watched the oil change. I looked for leaks but found none.

Dear Editor, I just want to thank Magistrate John Hudson for his willingness to look out for my tax dollars. To many, asking about the cost of an oil change is silly, but sometimes that is what it takes. With the sheriff coming to the court every year asking for more money, I think John may be sending a message that maybe all spending should be questioned. He was right to ask the county judge-executive to look into a contract to establish a fixed cost and place to have the work done.

Dear Editor, To question Sheriff Hardin about a $26 oil change is a slap in the face to a man the citizens of Boyle County elected to protect them. If a magistrate thinks that Sheriff Hardin isn't smart enough to make a decision on when to do upkeep and maintenance on a cruiser, then we have a problem. Either Sheriff Hardin needs to leave or perhaps a magistrate needs to find himself other fish to fry and let the ELECTED sheriff do his job. Please don't waste the time of the employees of the courthouse researching to see what can be done about this situation.

Dear Editor, Here we go again - no police coverage for Boyle County after 10 p.m. I am not happy about that at all. We are the laughingstock of central Kentucky, and why? - Magistrate John Hudson. We have made cuts in the sheriff's department and Mr. Hudson wants less patrolling. He wants a deal where you call and a deputy gets out of the bed and comes. That worked 20 years ago. It won't work now, because the drug problem wasn't as bad as it is now. Businesses used to close at 9 p.m., and now they don't close at all. At one time, when a husband and/or a father went to work on third shift and left his family alone, he had peace of mind that if something happened his wife could call for a sheriff's deputy and they would be there.

Showing her 2006 Mini Cooper Cabriolet for pictures last week, Kirsten Chersi got a really cool ride. With outdoor temperatures in the low 30s, lowering the top of her English-made sub-compact convertible gave a cooler-than-cool ride. Chersi says she always loved the original Mini, which, from the late 1950s to the end of the century, had several owners, but always a distinctive look. In the 1960s, it seemed to be more counterculture than the Volkswagen Beetle. While she loves the older models, she has never driven one. The current edition is a subsidiary of BMW, but continues to go by the Mini Cooper name.

There's no good way to wear a bra and ask a mechanic for help. Swear up and down your "guy" is the best in town, and I'd bet my left ... ah, leg, that he'll pad a woman's repair bill thicker than her Playtex underwire. Too many "sweethearts" have been slipped my way for me to trust a grease monkey bearing gifts. An oil change became a transmission fluid flush, with a price tag worthy of black gold. An alignment morphs into a tire change, new shocks and brake pads. If my Frigidaire had that gift, my culinary genius would surpass tater tots and creamed corn.

If you happen to live in Hawaii, then it only makes sense that you would choose to come to Kentucky for a visit in January, right? I know I have enjoyed every second of the snow and ice that started two months ago, and has yet to stop. My friend Erica definitely got to experience winter this year when she made her first trip back home after moving to Hawaii in May. She made it here easily enough — no flight cancellations or delays, and I even managed to pick her up from the airport on time.

Over the last year, Hometown Tire has been doing its own hometown research on nitrogen, and its owners say they're sold. Owner Jon McWilliams had read about adding the gas to tires instead of compressed air, but waited it out. "I wanted to make sure it wasn't just another fad," McWilliams said. Several industry reports on the overall benefits of nitrogen changed his mind, so he and others at the shop tried it out on their own vehicles. "We all liked it, and could notice the difference," McWilliams said.
