  • LETTER: Taxes, charters and random thoughts

    Since some of us had to cut back on what we spend at local businesses (producing local jobs)because of the new tax on our homeowners insurance, what does the county government plan for an encore?  A tax on taxes?

     Why are high schools changing their school colors to black?  Are black uniforms cheaper than blue ones?  Are they just copying off UofL?  If UofL people jump off the bridge, will high school people jump too?

    Over the past several weeks I have watched our kids play basketball in the parks and recreations league. Unfortunately there has been some rough play by several teams in the second and third grade age group league. The coaches have not tried in the least to take their teams aside to tell them that this is not acceptable.  All they care about is wins for their team.
