Today's Opinions

  • LETTER: Correction to Greenwell letter

    Just a slight correction to the “letter to the editor” from Linda Greewell regarding Bill Karrer.

    I was the LG&E representive on the massive petition project to provide LG&E Natural Gas to Taylorsville/Spencer County.

  • LETTER: EDA is a 'great asset'

    The Economic Development Authority, Inc. of Spencer County is a great asset to our community. Annette King, the executive director, has her finger on the pulse of this community. Her wisdom and patience helped me attain my dream of opening a business in Taylorsville.

  • GUEST COLUMN: New goals for KACo

    The events that lead to the decision by the General Assembly to pass Senate Bill 88 were regrettable and Kentucky Association of Counties (KACo) has taken full responsibility for those relating to our association. More importantly, the board of directors of KACo took steps well in advance of that legislation that put us in compliance with most of its provision even before it was passed.

  • LETTER: SCMS thanks volunteers

    The Spencer County Middle School extends a big THANK YOU to all the volunteers who assisted teachers and students during the 2009-10 school year.  SCMS appreciates and values your wonderful talents and volunteer services.

  • LETTER: Why I'm Biking 1,400 miles for Dr. Dan

    On April 12, I started a 1,400 mile bike ride across Kentucky in support of Dr. Daniel Mongiardo for U.S. Senate.  I’m 67-years old – a veteran, an author and Kentucky’s first Unbridled Spirit award winner.  But my most important role is a grandfather to thirteen grandchildren. 

  • LETTER: Stealing from soldiers

    With all the sacrifices and hardship that our military men and women go through for the defense of our nation, it saddens me to know that some unappreciative person stole monies from a collection box that was used to help pay for the shipping of 200 boxes of Girl Scout cookies to the 1-502th INF, Afghanistan!

  • LETTER: Travelstead shows 'heart'

    As a Taylorsville precinct resident, I am planning to vote for Richard Travelstead as this district’s magistrate.

    I have known Richard for over four years beginning back in the days when Guard Duty was forming. Richard is an Army veteran and was very interested in helping get the organization going. Along with being on its executive board, he was instrumental in securing our non-profit status.

  • LETTER: Celebrate sober

    We are nearing the time when many young people will celebrate a lifetime of accomplishments as they graduate from high school and move toward their life goals.  Family and friends will gather together for a festive occasion to commemorate this awesome milestone.

    Traditionally, this is also a time when alcohol enters into the mix and brings tragic results for all involved.  Alcohol is the most commonly used drug among American youth and it kills 5,000 teens every year.
