Today's Opinions

  • EDITORIAL: High fives and well-deserved pats on the back

    Parts of Taylorsville are starting to shine lately, and pats on the back are due to be handed out in at least three different places.
    First, how about a high five and a  job well done to the Main Street Phase II contractors, as well as the engineers and Main Street Committee members involved.
    It’s rare for a project that is closely watched by both local and state agencies to finish ahead of deadline. Not to mention an “unofficial” deadline of this past Saturday’s Progressive Dinner.

  • LETTER: Solution needed at Normandy/55 as soon as possible

    Your Sept. 19 edition carried a letter about a great concern to not only its author, Terrance Barnes, but also to all of us who travel Highway 155/55 at Elk Creek. The letter cited the problems with the intersection of Normandy Road and Highway 155. Everyone knows what a death trap this intersection has become. It seems a month doesn’t go by without another death or a week without another bloody accident.

  • LETTER: Show your love for Taylorsville at the polls this November

    Thank you for allowing me to comment on a subject that is close to my heart and has become of great interest and concern to me — the City of Taylorsville.
    Moving from Louisville to this small town three years ago took a giant leap of faith and a little bit of courage.

  • LETTER: Thanks for help with Hundley family fundraiser

    I would like to thank you for printing the story about the horse show we held for Blake Hundley and his family. It was a huge success. Over 500 people came through the gate, we made a total of $12,010.88.
    It is truly amazing how the community came together for this special little boy.
    I would like to thank the Waddy Ruritan Club for donating the grounds and building for the day, without them it would not have been possible. Also, the Waddy Saddle Club, which let us use all of their equipment. Again without them the show would not have been possible.  

  • LETTER: A dangerous thread, and traffic pattern proposal

    Anyone who travels Ky. 155 with regularity knows that the stretch of road from Taylorsville toward Louisville is a very dangerous and fast paced trek.

  • EDITORIAL: How simple is it to address Fiscal Court?

    During Monday night’s Fiscal Court meeting, Magistrate Hobert Judd told Judge-Executive Bill Karrer that he wanted to address the court’s “communications from citizens” policy.
    Currently, the policy is that citizens are allowed three minutes to address the court as long as the topic they wish to discuss is on the agenda.
    We’ve addressed our displeasure with this policy, and for the record, we continue to do so.
    Judd recommended the court increase that three-minute window to four or even five minutes.

  • LETTER: Keeping prom on campus isn’t the answer

  • LETTER: Applause for city commission candidates

    I applaud the four [new] candidates who have stepped forward to run for the office of commissioner for the city of Taylorsville. It is so good to know there are people willing to step forward to contribute to this community and who have the vision to see the great potential for growth and enrichment of Taylorsville while still maintaining its small town charm.
