Today's Opinions

  • LETTER: Doing the right thing? Or not?

    Numerous people have asked what happened at the Sanctuary Center and why people are so angry at “the city.”
    In a nutshell and in my case, the city poured concrete over my access at 95 E. Main St., The Sanctuary Arts Center, home of characters, storytellers, music makers and artists.  

  • LETTER: Vote Heaton in 50th District

    During the November election, we are going to be casting our vote for state representative to represent the 50th District in Frankfort and I strongly believe our choice should be Dick Heaton. I have had the privilege to work with Dick Heaton when he was a Bardstown City Councilman and Bardstown Mayor and I have watched him be a great advocate for our county.

  • LETTER: Hesselbrock is a clear choice

    I am writing in response to the letter from Paul David Jewell about the county clerk. In my opinion the clerk’s office has changed dramatically from a place that you hated to walk into to a place that is comfortable and welcoming when you walk in. There is now a genuine smile when you walk into the office not a look of distaste because you have bothered someone to do their job.

  • LETTER: Supporting Dick Heaton

  • LETTER: Don’t wait for perfect

  • EDITORIAL: Old case needs a new look

    Did Susan King of Mount Eden murder her former boyfriend Kyle “Deanie” Breeden of Shelbyville in 1998?
    That question, which for years haunted investigators and Mr. Breeden’s family, was thought to be at rest in 2008, when Ms. King was sent to prison.
    But now we have our own new set of questions about this case, including not only how the investigation has been handled but also who has a responsibility to ensure that Ms. King in fact did commit this crime.

  • LETTER: Hesselbrock brings accountability to the clerk’s office

    The elections are just a few weeks away and while the national media may be hyper-focused on the presidential race, voters in Spencer County have an equally important race to consider.
    In Kentucky, the County Clerks are responsible for seeing to fair and honest elections, locally and all the way up to the presidential elections we hear so much about. It is important that the County Clerk be honest, thorough and above reproach.

  • LETTER: Many people made Progressive Dinner a success

    On Sept. 22, 2012, at 5 p.m., the Progressive Dinner was in full swing starting with appetizers at Porter and Associates, salad at The Peoples Bank, a stop for wine and cheese tasting with Mr. and Mrs. William Stewart, then to soup with Bennett’s Hardware and Creekside Florist, next to the Chamber of Commerce Building for the main course by Chef Josh Moore with Volare Restaurant, and finally to desserts at Valley Apparel sponsored by the Taylorsville-Spencer County Fire Department.
