Today's Opinions

  • LETTER: Compliments to Coach Napper

    We would like to commend Coach Wes Napper for getting off to a spectacular start with the high school football team so far this season.

    His hard work, perseverance, and vision for his team are obvious in light of winning the season opener as well as obtaining two wins out of the first three games.

  • LETTER: Help needed with Sabbath question

    I would like to ask your religious writers and all ministers of the church to explain where in the Bible Christ changed the Sabbath from the seventh day to the first day.

    In Hebrews 4:8, Paul wrote to the church: “For if Jesus had given them rest then would he not afterward have spoken of another day.” 

    Now please read Hebrews 4:1-11.

  • LETTER: Your turn to vote, don't blow it

    It is official, I understand, the petition has been certified and there will be a wet/dry vote this October.  It is about time the voters in this county are allowed to be heard!  Unfortunately, our county leaders, elected and otherwise, have a long history of denying the citizens of this county their right to vote.

    Don’t think this is true?  Let us take a stroll down memory lane.

  • LETTER: Library's influence in county

    In fiscal year 2008 there were 66,586 visitors entering the Spencer County Public Library.  The library is open 2,418 hours per year.  Our collections total 27,547 books, audios and videos, with an annual circulation of materials numbering 82,757.  Aggressive weeding of non-circulated materials in all areas, coupled with increased purchasing of new titles, has greatly improved selections available to our patrons. 

  • LETTER:Thanks for helping 'Queen for a Day'

    We would like to take this opportunity to offer a big thank you to all the local merchants, restaurants,  and businesses who donated items, gift certificates, and cash donations that helped to make “Queen for a Day” a success!

  • LETTER: Looks forward to returning

    A few weeks ago I had an opportunity, for the first time in many years, to revisit Taylorsville and Spencer County. I not only came to see friends, I wanted to see the place where part of my roots are.

     My maternal grandfather, Leonard C. Warren, was a native of Spencer County and his brother, Charlie Warren, ran the pool hall that was in the building The Spencer Magnet now occupies. I barely knew great uncle Charlie, having met him only once, so long ago that I cannot remember when.

  • LETTER: EDA has already held a public forum

    On April 27th the Taylorsville-Spencer County Economic Development Authority, Inc., held a public forum during the regular scheduled monthly meeting.

    At that meeting, Chairman Dennis Eisenback, explained that the Taylorsville-Spencer County Economic Development was asked to look at the economic impact the sale of alcohol could have on merchants in Spencer County.  And should that research conclude, that indeed, it would have an economic impact would we present those findings to the residents of Spencer County.

  • LETTER: ACT scores, Bill Drury and public forums

    First, the article about ACT scores caught my interest. It seems to me the students’ best interest would be to teach them the subject matter rather than concentrating on teaching them how to take the test. Wouldn’t their knowledge be better if they know the whole subject rather than the answers to the test questions? Think about it, could that be why our school system is ranked low.
