Today's Opinions

  • LETTER: Bill that affect kids

    Most kids my age are concerned with sports and video games, which I enjoy. As a Boy Scout and Christian, I would like to focus on an issue that is far more significant. In fact there are five bills that are being considered right now. I feel these are so important that I took a field trip on March 3 to the state capital in Frankfort.

  • LETTER: As I see it

    Mayor Don Pay presented his “State of the City” speech last Thursday at the Chamber of Commerce luncheon. Mayor Pay indicated in that speech that the occupational taxes that the city has been collecting will pay for new “welcome” signs at all four entrances to the city as well as street signs, stop signs and other directional signage that will resemble the new signs located on Main Street that were funded by the Main Street renovation grant.

  • LETTER: Charter quenches thirst for power

    I read in the paper about the deposition of Dwight Martin and James Allen Tipton.  Both are great young men and we are lucky to have them as citizens of the county. No one would ever make me think that Dwight or James Allen would ever doing anything wrong.  I don’t think you could torture them into doing anything that was not 100 percent right, but there is a true perception out there and perceptions are more often as real than not.

  • LETTER: Paper irreplacable

    As we pass through the time of our community we sometimes forget we are leaving an indelible trail of our concerns, conclusions, rational and irrational judgments. We sometimes do not remember that the local newspaper serves more than just expressing current news.  It also forever reflects how things were accomplished (or not accomplished), whose influence prevailed, and why a community developed the way it did. It illustrates in detail the feelings, judgments, reasons and influence of the community’s leaders, would-be leaders and its citizens.

  • LETTER: Thanks to trail volunteers

    Last Saturday it drizzled cold rain all day long - the weather was awful!  In spite of that over 40 volunteers from all around the region showed up to help clear the multi use trails at Taylorsville Lake State Park that suffered ice storm damage.  It only took half a day with all these volunteers and donated equipment to clear almost all of the 22 miles of trails.  Park management will let us know when the trails will be officially opened - which should be soon.  Once again volunteers have stepped up to get the job done!  We are taking more and more pride and owners

  • LETTER: Gracie, one of God’s creatures

    She laid downcast and huddled in a small kennel at an animal supply store. One mat, one bowl, no attention from the customers. Her eyes no longer held the shine of a beloved pet, her body language gave no sign of hope. She was alone…forgotten. Her frail, abused, and severely malnourished body did not attract any potential new owner. Her abuser did a good job of breaking her spirit.

  • LETTER: Response to “Floodwall failure” story
  • LETTER: Thanks for helping Dare to Care

    Those involved with First Baptist Church of Taylorsville’s Dare to Care ministry would like to extend a special thanks to Country Mart, Faulkner Meats, Painters Local #118 of Louisville and the Taylorsville Masonic Lodge #210 for their donations.

    These efforts would not be possible without great community support.
