Letters

  • LETTER: Support HR 1489

    It is now a little less than three years since we came within an eyelash of a total collapse of the economy. Our elected “leaders” in Washington stubbornly cling to their claims that we are simply in a recession. Those who brought about the meltdown are still raking in billions in bonuses. “Too big to fail” financial institutions are bigger than ever.
    As a people, we seem incapable of learning from history.

  • LETTER: City, county have made ‘huge mistake’

    Taylorsville, what have you done? Having read all the ups and downs regarding the EDA, I wonder if the city and county officials even know what they have done by eliminating EDA and losing Annette King.
    Yes, anyone can be replaced, but no replacement will ever be able to fill these shoes.

  • LETTER: Don’t get along just to get along

    Can’t we all just get along?
    You hear that stated all the time, but if our founding fathers had just all got along we would still be a British Colony. There are times to get along and times to dissent. Dissension is good, it causes thought and discussion, but some can’t discuss, they want to argue and suggest their way is the best way and there’s no need for change or you’re just negative and causing trouble. They may form a defensive circle to ward off any constructive criticism and shut you out.

  • LETTER: Donations needed for military baseball event

    The Knights of Columbus of All Saints Catholic Church hit a “homerun” for our troops in Afghanistan by their generous donation to Guard Duty, Inc., to ship over to Afghanistan supplies for the “SFC Sammy – Chevy, Baseball and Apple Pie Event,” an all-American day of playing baseball, popcorn, peanuts, Cracker Jacks and apple pie for our combat troops.
    The Knights financial aid will help ship to Afghanistan the ball equipment plus four cases of apple pies, two cases that were generously donated by a Taylorsville grocer.

  • LETTER: Thanks for free sports physicals

    On behalf of Spencer County Middle and High schools, I would like to express our sincere gratitude to Dr. Thomas Crain (Creekside Family Medical) and Becky House (Spencer County Physical Therapy) for hosting their annual sports physical clinic.
    On June 18, 76 student athletes received free sports physicals. This marks roughly 10 years of service that they have graciously provided to our community. How very lucky we are.

  • LETTER: Citizens need to seek answers from city commission

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank the editor for the editorial “Open the doors on city government” in the May 18, 2011 paper.
    On Tuesday, May 10,  I attended the Taylorsville City Commission meeting and was very surprised to see no residents there. This prompted me to write this letter to the editor.

  • LETTER: Here's hoping 'more godliness will rise'

    Through my employment here in town and work with a local military/veteran support organization, I have grown to know and love many of the fine people of Taylorsville and Spencer County.

  • LETTER: Thanks for making Habitat golf scramble a success

    The sixth annual Spencer County Habitat for Humanity Golf Scramble was June 11 at  Tanglewood Golf Course.  More than 70 golfers from all over Kentucky participated in this outpouring of community support.

    Mother Nature cooperated, the golf course was in great shape, numerous volunteers watched for the golfers to make a hole-in-one and the golfers generously donated to Spencer County Habitat by buying “skirts,” “mulligans” and door prize tickets.

  • LETTER: EDA needs a new direction

    I attended the fiscal court meeting, on June 6, and the Taylorsville City Commission meeting, June 7. The funding of EDA was among the first items on the agenda at both.
    At the Monday fiscal court meeting, the EDA executive director gave a presentation and then had her supporters express their support of her and the EDA.
    After some discussion, the court voted not to fund the EDA and then they moved the $30,000 to the account to fund a consultant for the new planning and zoning laws.

  • LETTER: Triathlon, lake traffic too much to handle

    On June 4 and 5, our state park hosted a triathlon at the lake. They rented the space to them over a year ago, which is great, but the downside is that the lake had since been flooded.
    This is no one’s fault, but since there was a weather emergency due to the flood, there should have been other arrangements for the start of the race.  
    Instead, they took up all the parking at the only open boat ramp leaving no parking for the boaters.
    I personally watched as children cried because parents had to tell them they could not get on the lake.
