  • Congress ceded power to president

    In response to Jim Waters’ June 8 article:

  • NRA gun policy

    Dear Editor,

    I enjoyed your article on the NRA convention and how safe it was because everyone had guns.

    I thought I heard on the news that guns and knives were not allowed in the room where our senators, our governor and Trump were speaking. What conclusion should I draw?

  • LETTER: Informed voters should support Bevin

    First let me get one thing clear: Although I am the chairman of the local Tea Party, I do not speak for the Tea Party. We simply try and inform the public of the truth.
    I have, and will escalate if need be, started an effort to inform people not to vote for those who do not deserve their vote. I will no longer vote for the skunk that smells the least. Mitch McConnell has been in Washington, D.C., 30 years and cannot run a campaign based on his accomplishments. That is sad that We the People have allowed this to happen.

  • LETTER: Couple bids farewell to Spencer County

    Back in the fall of 1993 we were looking for a place to build our dream house. Lucky for us, we discovered Spencer County.
    We first fell in love with the beauty of Spencer County and soon after discovered the people who call Taylorsville home are even more delightful than the natural resources. From the start, we were warmly welcomed at every retail establishment, given much-needed advice on services, and formed friendships that will last for years.

  • LETTER: Christian rally at capitol a 'refreshing' day

    There were standing-room-only crowds in the House and Senate chambers Tuesday as various Christian legislators spoke up about their faith in Jesus and how this faith effects their decisions.
    Then there was a gathering in the rotunda where several ministers spoke and the songs “Amazing Grace” and “God Bless America” were sung. The weather was absolutely beautiful – our first “spring” day.

  • LETTER: Farm tag donations help support FFA

    As we get closer to April, it’s that time of year when many of us are renewing our farm license tags.   
    As many of you may not know,  individuals purchasing farm license plates in Kentucky may make a $10 donation to the state 4-H and FFA youth programs through the Kentucky Department of Agriculture. This donation is split evenly between Kentucky Proud, 4-H and FFA.
    Of the FFA portion, 50 percent stays with the State FFA Foundation and 50 percent goes to the local FFA chapter.

  • LETTER: Love of community felt during difficult loss

    My mother was a Taylorsville girl. Although I was reared in southern Indiana, my brother, sister and I spent many precious hours and days in Taylorsville with our grandparents and with my favorite uncle. We not only ran and played in the fresh country air, but we were also exposed to the love, generosity, cheerfulness, and faith in God that my grandparents and uncle so openly displayed and shared.
    Our experiences here were not just the most magical moments of our young lives. They also laid a firm foundation for my faith in God and for my faith in the goodness of mankind.

  • LETTER: What needs fixing and what doesn't

    Since the General Assembly is in session and legislatures are entering and voting on bills, I would like to mention a couple of things that need fixing along with a couple that don’t need fixing.
    We don’t need more bills to regulate women’s personal lives and interfering with the rights they already have.

  • LETTER: ‘Best explanation of the Tea Party’

    The political left in this country has tried to define the Tea Party in a negative light. We’ve been called “jihadists, terrorists, arsonists, radicals and anarchists.” Senator Mitch McConnell has called the Tea Party “traitors” and said that we “need to be punched in the nose.” The very best explanation I’ve heard was on a recent interview of Matt Bevin on WHAS radio. I will paraphrase what Mr. Bevin had to say and add some thoughts of my own.

  • LETTER: Thanks to those who brave the cold to keep others warm
