Today's Opinions

  • LETTER: Show me the statistics

    Just how much economic impact do the supporters of legalized alcohol sales predict will come to fruition if the vote this fall results in Spencer County becoming wet?

    We hear a lot of predictions of new jobs, new revenue and new restaurants, but there have been no hard statistics.

  • MATTER OF OPINION: Starting something and not finishing it

    The word ‘disappointed’ does not even begin to describe how I felt, but that was the adjective that I used.

    Maybe the word ‘frustrated’ provides a better illustration of my reaction. Other words that pop to mind now are confused, discouraged and defeated.

    Looking back, I have realized that the most accurate description of how I felt last Monday sitting before the Spencer County Economic Development Authority was nothing less than annoyed.

  • LETTER: Behind the scenes look at dispatch

    This letter is in response to all of the drama over the Spencer  County Dispatch office.

    Do any of you really realize what those dispatchers go through on a daily basis? No, you don’t unless you have spent eight hours in their shoes when they are working.

    There is one dispatcher on duty to dispatch calls for the Sheriff’s office, Taylorsville Police Department, Spencer County EMS, Spencer County Fire Department, Fish and Wildlife, and Taylorsville Water Works.

  • LETTER: Economic gain not worth trade off

      

  • LETTER: Attacks on Drury nearly slanderous

    I’ve taken about all I can stand of the unfounded belittling that a few people have been spewing through ads and letters to the editor, lately.

    Yes, the 1st Amendment states we have freedom of speech. But some recent attacks, most notably on Bill Drury, have no grounds whatsoever. It’s to the point where I will call it slanderous, teetering on libel.

    It seems the very vocal minority would like to give an impression of Magistrate Bill Drury that is anything but true.

  • LETTER: Rethinking red and blue states

    Much has been said about the polarization of our country the past nine years, and all of the recent yelling and name-calling has only confirmed that there are lots of unhappy people out there. Looking at a map of “red” and “blue” counties from the last election, the blue making up about one-fifth of our country’s land mass, I have a modest proposal to make both sides happy.

  • LETTER: Do we really want Obamacare?

     

    We had an exchange student from England in 2002 who attended Spencer County High when Hillary Clinton was promoting her socialist health care agenda. 

    Kirsty Hillier, our exchange student, saw her on TV one night, threw up her hands, and implored, “Please, Marty, please tell them they do not want to do this thing.  It has destroyed the health care system in England.”

  • LETTER: Resident urges men to get free screening

    An unprecedented eleven consecutive days of free prostate cancer screenings will be offered in the South Wing Health Horizons during the Kentucky State Fair between 10:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m.
