Today's Opinions

  • LETTER: Give David Floyd two more years

    I would like to take this opportunity to encourage my supporters, and all voters, to vote for David Floyd for Kentucky state representative.
    It is so important today to keep a voice for conservatism representing our interests in Frankfort. It is more important than ever, since conservatives, in the form of republicans, are within six seats of gaining control of the House of Representatives, which would mean that many of the issues David Floyd has been fighting for would be heard and brought to the floor for a vote.

  • LETTER: Vote for experience in the county clerk's office

    Do you want a Spencer County Clerk who doesn’t consider the office an arm of any political party? Abbigail Nation has the experience to know that the purpose of this office is to serve the public according to the Kentucky Constitution, not to make points with whatever administration is in power.
    In the interest of good government, don’t you think it would have been better management to keep an experienced deputy county clerk on the job?

  • LETTER: Schools could 'do without' in some areas, like the rest of us

    Our school board raised its tax rate recently after the superintendent said they needed to raise taxes or “do without.”  I really do feel sorry for them, but who isn’t doing without this year?

  • 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.
