Today's Opinions

  • LETTER: Slow drivers can be hazardous too

    This letter is in regard to a menace on the road. When I leave for work, heading east on KY 44 from Mt. Washington, I encounter, almost every morning, a pickup truck. Now every one seems to think that speed kills. Well, I assure you that driving 20 miles an hour on curvy, hilly roads can also kill.

    I can not count the number of cars and trucks that pass this individual every morning. I cringe when I see yet another automobile or truck pass this person on this dangerous road.

  • LETTERS: READERS REACT TO ALCOHOL ELECTION

    I am an adult child of an alcoholic father. My dad, Ernest Inghram, was given his first taste of alcohol when he was 12 years of age, at school. Older folk thought it funny to let him have his first drink, then to watch his behavior, which was out of control afterwards, with laughs.

  • A MATTER OF OPINION: Alcohol a polarizing issue

    Six months have passed since the first person put pen to paper and signed a petition to legalize the sale of alcohol in Spencer County. Now with only six days until the special-election, voters on both sides who care about the future of this small community are waiting for Tuesday when they can finally be heard.

  • LETTER: Children and alcohol

    I was shocked a week ago when I was entering and exiting a store in Taylorsville to see children and teenagers loitering and loudly shouting profanity in public to a driver that stopped his car to speak with them in the shopping center.  This situation was unusual for our county.  Those types of incidents could escalate.  One adds alcohol or illegal drugs on top of that encounter and the end result would not be pleasant. 

  • LETTER: Buyer beware
  • LETTER: Thanks for a great homecoming

    The Waterford Homecoming Committee would like to express our thanks to the businesses that helped make our festival a great success.

  • MATTER OF OPINION: Get answers before the wet/dry vote

    On October 20, voters will have two choices when it comes to the special-election to legalizing alcohol sales in Spencer County – yes or no.

    Initially, the issue seemed a straightforward one. Either voters will be for or against converting the county’s alcohol status to wet. But if anything has been gleaned in the past six months, it is that this is no simple issue.

  • LETTER: Vote no to what?

    Has anyone seen the yellow signs that have begun to plague our beautiful county? “Vote NO” they say.

    My question is, vote no to what? Vote no to the transportation of alcohol into Spencer County? Vote no to the consumption of alcohol in Spencer County?

    I don’t think that people really understand the meaning of the vote. The vote is only about selling alcohol in Spencer County.
