Today's Opinions

  • LETTER: Thanks for helping during ice storm

    I just wanted to commend those that manned the Emergency Shelter during the ice storm week before last.  Specifically, JD Fleming and his family.  JD is an EMT and he worked almost 24 hours a day to monitor the shelter which served several people with medical conditions.  No matter how tired he was, he always had a smile on his face and was ready to tackle whatever needed to be done.

  • LETTER: Taxes, charters and random thoughts

    Since some of us had to cut back on what we spend at local businesses (producing local jobs)because of the new tax on our homeowners insurance, what does the county government plan for an encore?  A tax on taxes?

     Why are high schools changing their school colors to black?  Are black uniforms cheaper than blue ones?  Are they just copying off UofL?  If UofL people jump off the bridge, will high school people jump too?

  • LETTER: Something needs to be done

    Over the past several weeks I have watched our kids play basketball in the parks and recreations league. Unfortunately there has been some rough play by several teams in the second and third grade age group league. The coaches have not tried in the least to take their teams aside to tell them that this is not acceptable.  All they care about is wins for their team. 

  • LETTER: Flag pole not “chopped down”

    In response to a previous letter titled “Cemetery should respect flag.”

    The Valley Cemetery Board would like to clarify that Mr. Robinson’s flag pole had not been “chopped down,” as Ms. Waldridge implied. However, in November we had a strong wind storm that blew Mr. Robinson’s flag pole down along with others.

  • LETTER: No whine in Early Wyne
  • LETTER: Life begins at conception

    With all the things going on in the world right now, there is one extremely important issue that I believe has been forgotten about by most people.

    This week marks the anniversary of the 1973 Supreme Court deceision,”Roe vs Wade”. I realize that the subject of abortion brings about very emotional responses from people on both sides of the issue, but this issue should never be put out of our minds.

    I believe that life begins at conception. In Jeremiah 1:5, scripture records, “ Before you were formed in the womb, I knew you”.

  • LETTER: Heartfelt thanks

    I am a relatively new resident of Taylorsville and would like to pass on some good news in this time of bad news for many.

    When the winter storm hit us last week, our power went out. It left us with no heat or way to cook our food. My wife and I were getting concerned and cold. The loud speaker which we heard telling us of the shelter at the hight school was great.

    I did not know many of our local city, county and state officials prior to Wednesday. but at the shelter, I got to see them all at work together - key word “together”.

  • LETTER: Neighbors helping neighbors

    We would like to thank our great friends and neighbors, the Manning family, Acker family, Schaffer family, Edwards family, Keefe family, Berry family, and all the others that have called, offered help and opened their homes, but most of all their prayers. Without you we would have not made it through.
