Today's Opinions

  • LETTER: Reader says don't sign wet petition

    The petition for the wet or dry vote that is portrayed by its founders to be so good for everyone is already proving to be costly. It is dividing the county, and if they get enough signatures, it’s going to cost us, the taxpayers, at least $20,000.

    The best way to stop this and save the county money we don’t have is don’t sign this petition to begin with.

  • LETTER: Alcohol sales just don't add up
  • LETTER: Ky. Gourd Society says thanks for support

    The Kentucky Gourd Society would like to thank the community for supporting the KY Gourd Art Show. This year marked out 15th year here in Taylorsville.

    The KGS Board consists of dedicated people from across the state of Kentucky. They promote the growing and crafting of gourds.

    Although they prepare for the show all year, so does the community.

    We would like to thank those that get the downtown ready for the visitors that come for that weekend.

  • LETTER: EDA, alcohol vote and tax money

    On May 14, 1988, there was a bus crash in Carroll County, Kentucky caused by a man who had left a bar drinking alcohol. He was going the wrong way on 1-71 and ran into a bus carrying sixty-seven passengers. Twenty-seven of them died, and thirty-four injured, mostly children. Every year we have thousands of people killed on the highways caused by alcohol. Do we want these bars in our county where people sit and drink?

  • LETTER: Minister speaks in favor of wet vote

    I am a minister ready to be the first minister in the area to speak for the possible wet/dry vote for the county. 

    I too have strong morals and values deeply rooted in my Christian faith and beliefs along with the ministers who have spoken against the possible future vote.

    The letters and articles I have read against the issue seem to say that those who are for it and/or those who drink do not have the same standards as those who choose not to drink alcohol. 

  • LETTER: A donor saved my life

    A month ago, I received the most precious gift anyone could possibly receive – a lung transplant. Money could not have bought this, only the generosity of a donor who wanted their life to mean something even after their death by saving other lives.

    Until I needed a transplant, I never knew how important it was to become a donor – or how easy it was – just sign the back of your driver’s license.

  • LETTER: Speak up now about bridge and KY 44 projects

    Fellow citizens, this is your last chance to influence the Hwy 55 Salt River Bridge Project and Hwy 44 Realignment Project.  I am sending two letters to the state highway department that outline what many in the community would like to see included with these projects.  You may or may not agree with everything but either way, you should let them know what you think.  If we do not ask for these additions they will not include them.

  • LETTER: Taxes, traffic and earning a living wage

    Why is David Jenkins grinning on the front page about his new taxes’ averting a deficit?  I have a deficit for the second straight year--partly from medical bills, but partly from the three new local taxes.

    Why hasn’t the Taylorsville floodwall been a “stimulus bill” priority like the new Louisville bus wash?  People accused Bush of being at fault when New Orleans flooded, but this decision-making will really make Obama at fault when Taylorsville floods.
