  • LETTER: The deceptive cost of liberal socialism

    I was talking to Phyllis Oliver recently and the conversation dealt with her intese frustration and aggravation of all the taxes she is forced to pay.

    A few hours later, Mrs. Oliver made a motion at the Spencer County School Board special tax rate meeting to raise the school tax rate by 4 percent.

    Oliver is a school board member, you see. Why would she act in this illogical manner? I believe she suffers from a condition affecting her perception of reality and logic. It is called socialism.

    Everyone loves a dollar burger and no-one is more excited about our county’s growth and prosperity than yours truly. I wanted to take a moment, however, to encourage you to remember a locally created cheeseburger worthy of Food Network coverage. These burgers have been hand patted into many of the hearts of our county’s finest for nine strong years. Citizens of Taylorsville, if you have not had the pleasure, please make a point to visit L & S Diner and enjoy what could be one of the nation’s premier burgers.

  • Heads and Tails - Chapter 9

     1997 – Not the 21st century, but close! At least everything felt familiar. For one, our computer was back. Not the computer I was accustomed to, but a late ‘90s model. I had to dial a phone number so I could connect to the Internet. Our TV included more channels and a remote control. Also, just by turning it on, we knew all the news all around the world in just a matter of minutes.

  • LETTER: Show compassion for cattle owners

    I’m writing in response to the article about the Mt. Eden man who’s fed up with cattle on his property, which printed in the October 22 issue of the paper.

  • Joker Phillips’ rise is more Obama parallel than Willingham, Prince firings

    Fired, football coaches at Washington and Kansas State. Add Phil Fulmer at Tennessee and Tommy Bowden at Clemson to list of first to fall from the coaches carousel. An Associated Press story surfaced quickly. Ignoring Fulmer and Bowden, it centered on Ty Willingham and Ron Prince firings and linked them to Barack Obama’s election. Then gave pulpit to the Institute of Diversity and Ethics in Sports.
