Today's Opinions

  • MATTER OF OPINION: City vs. county, who’s the loser?

    The issue of merging city and county governments is one that has not been reported on in this paper for some time – mainly because nothing new has happened.

  • A MATTER OF OPINION: Don't be dumbed down

    I have watched more local television news reports this past week than in recent years and I can honestly say that I’m dumber for it.

    When it comes to feeding that news-junkie habit, there’s nothing that compares to the written word – and not on some flickering computer screen either. Even when I do want to read something on an Internet news site, I have to print it out.

  • LETTER: Bears football coach looks forward to season

    It is with great anticipation and excitement that we begin the 2009-2010 Spencer County High School football season.

  • LETTER: Entertaining on the taxpayers dime

    It goes without saying that the current activities of our county judge has created a cloud of sadness that covers the legacy of our community statewide.  One would think that we are the laughing stock of the Commonwealth, but no one is laughing.

     If there is any taxpaying citizen in Spencer County that is not 100 percent angry, that person needs to be committed to an insane asylum.  I will refer to Judge Jenkins as Mr. Jenkins from this point in time because I can not fathom addressing him as judge.  He no longer deserves that distinction.

  • LETTER: A plea for pets

    As temperatures rise, take care of your pets…please. 

    Did you know dogs can get sunburn and heat stroke?  Here’s a simple test--if it’s hot to you, it is hot for your pet. 

    Here are simple tips--Don’t leave your dog in the sun for long periods of time, give the dog plenty of fresh, cool water and access to shade throughout the day, and never, ever, leave your dog in your car. 

  • LETTER: Drowning victim's family says, "thank you"

    The family of Anthony Wayne “Tony” Reynolds would like to thank everyone involved in the search and recovery efforts after his tragic boating accident at Taylorsville Lake May 29.

    We would first like to recognize the members of the Louisville Metro Police Department Dive Team, the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife and the Mt. Washington Fire Protection District.

  • LETTER: Prompt service

    Thank you to Salt River Electric for being so prompt in responding to our emergency call after the storm last Monday. We had a transformer struck by lightning. Within 20 minutes of our phone call Salt River Electric had a truck here, had a transformer ordered and a bucket truck on the way. We had our electricity restored within an hour. What great service!

  • GUEST COLUMNIST: Wrapping up the special session

    Although it took a bit longer than planned, the House and Senate finally came to an agreement Wednesday to reduce and balance the state budget and lay the groundwork for future economic development across the Commonwealth, as the eight-day special session called by the governor adjourned.
