Letters

  • LETTER: Be a donor, save a life

    In 1992, the Circuit Clerks of Kentucky recognized the tragedy that 18 people die every day waiting for an organ transplant, yet Kentuckians were not aware of what they could do to save lives. The Kentucky Association of Circuit Court Clerks supported legislation that allows every person obtaining a driver’s license or ID an opportunity to donate $1.00 to raise awareness about organ donation in Kentucky. These $1.00 donations go into a Trust — the Kentucky Circuit Court Clerks’ Trust For Life.

  • LETTER: Do we really need a Taj Mahal library?

    I’m writing in response to Shannon Brock’s column regarding the meeting to gather input and ideas for a possible new library in Spencer County. While the turnout for this meeting no doubt was disappointing, it’s not at all surprising since obviously the vast majority of people take little to no interest in the functioning of or participation in their government — local, state or federal.

  • LETTER: Thanks for help with candy buyback

    We wanted to express our thanks and gratitude for the many people who participated in our third annual candy buyback “Treats for our Troops” event.
    I know it can be hard to give up your hard earned candy, but your teeth and our troops say thank you.

  • LETTER: Avoid ‘childish’ politics when electing county clerk next year

  • LETTER: Complain to those who can change laws

    This is in response to Lawrence Trageser’s seemingly consistent harassment of the current county judge-executive and the lawful decisions/actions Bill Karrer makes.
    Lawrence, if you don’t like the laws of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, why not make your complaints to those who do make them? Or better yet run for office yourself.
    I have every confidence that the current elected officials and/or appointees are doing what they consider is the best for the county.
    You, sir, just seem to have multiple axes to grind using unfounded opinions.  

  • LETTER: City, county need a joint plan for the future

    My wife, Sandy, and I moved to Spencer County 11 years ago from out of state.  We had no roots in Kentucky and picked this area based largely on a feeling that this could be a comfortable home for us.  The longer we have lived here, the more we realize how fortunate we were to have chosen Taylorsville.

  • LETTER: The right person is county clerk

    It’s nice we have a county clerk that will be responsible and honest on the job. It’s fitting that Lynn Hesselbrock be chosen to finish out the position of county clerk, after all, she did run for the position and was a close second. With all the issues in the office why would Judge-Executive Bill Karrer want to appoint someone in the office as a replacement and possibly have the same old, same old problems?

  • LETTER: Home Tour filled with Christmas spirit

    Since moving to Taylorsville 12 years ago, I have attended many wonderful Christmas Home Tours. But, perhaps because of my age or the uncertain times in which we live, this year the tour was especially poignant. Thank you to the hosts and hostesses who shared their homes, church and office with everyone in the community.

  • LETTER: Reader takes issue with county clerk appointment

    To the victor, go the spoils, a high ranking republican told me, concerning the recent appointment of Lynn Hesselbrock to the county clerk’s position. Qualifications? My understanding is Hesselbrock’s experience is based in nursing. Granted she did run for the seat and barely lost, but with a presidential election coming up and taking an office over, that has exhausted its budget.
    I must ask the question, what was Bill Karrer thinking? Another back room secret deal? On the job training?

  • LETTER: Donate to fundraiser for Kenyan orphanage

    My name is Nolan Thompson, and I am helping to host a variety show for the benefit of an orphanage in Kenya, Africa. I am writing to tell you a little bit about it.
    When I was in third grade, I watched my mom collect toys, blankets and toothbrushes for homeless people. That really sparked my interest in helping people.
    In May, I did a food drive for Alabama after a tornado hit. I did it because my dad was taking stuff down there and I thought it would be nice to have more people involved in the project.
