  • LETTER: Good story on septic systems

    The article written by Larry Lewis regarding septic tanks was right on the mark. If everyone on septic systems would follow that advice they would have a lot less problems.

    Thanks, Mr. Lewis, for a very factual and informative article.

  • LETTER: Somebody, please fix Houston Court

    When I read the articles in the paper about all the city and county are doing to make our town and county pretty, I think back about all the times the citizens of Houston Court have asked for their help and nothing has been done.

    We live at the bottom of Skaggs Hill. We have had an ongoing drainage problem here for years and the city and county can only blame each other about “who is responsible for this problem.”

  • LETTER: Dry in name only

    The thousands of beer cans that we have picked up along the right of way adjoining our farm over many decades stand as testament that Spencer County is dry in name only.

    We do not use alcohol but support the sale of alcoholic beverages in Spencer County because we think that if some existing businesses wish to sell it, they should have the opportunity to do so.

  • LETTER: Take the heat out of the alcohol debate

    I like truth. I do not have a corner on truth, so I try to be grateful to people who disagree with me for specific reasons. When someone tells me he disagrees with me, it is hard not to take it personally. It is much better if he gives me reasons why he disagrees with me. Then, I can try to understand his position.

  • Guest columnist: Progressive town needs a progressive plan

    Last week, a public meeting was held with engineers from the State Highways and Transportation Department regarding the proposed new bridge on KY 55 over the Salt River and the KY 44 realignment.  I got the impression these projects, although much needed, are simply a meat and potatoes bare bones approach leaving no room in the design for wide sidewalks to accommodate pedestrians, bike routes or handicapped pathways.

  • LETTER: Alcohol will bring business diversity, jobs " not abuse

    I have been reading with interest all the differing views on the wet versus dry debate. I’ve been thinking about this issue ever since we moved here 12 years ago. I never heard of a dry county until then. I’ve also been thinking about the fact that there is virtually no place for kids/young adults to go to unless it’s a church event or organized sport. I see these two issues merging into a single solution.

  • LETTER: Apron contest celebrates past

    This is the third year for our Apron Contest at the Red Scooter.  We schedule it each year around Mother’s Day to honor our “foremothers.”

    Aprons were such a huge part of our ancestors’ day to day wardrobe. Many a tear has been dried by an apron.

    Out of the 24 aprons entered, the winners are listed below:

    • Our Antique Apron Winner was Hazel Slucher who brought in a child’s blue floral bib apron trimmed in blue rickrack.  She thinks it belonged to Martin Slucher.

  • LETTER: Reader says don't sign wet petition

    The petition for the wet or dry vote that is portrayed by its founders to be so good for everyone is already proving to be costly. It is dividing the county, and if they get enough signatures, it’s going to cost us, the taxpayers, at least $20,000.

    The best way to stop this and save the county money we don’t have is don’t sign this petition to begin with.
