Today's Opinions

  • LETTER: Minister speaks in favor of wet vote

    I am a minister ready to be the first minister in the area to speak for the possible wet/dry vote for the county. 

    I too have strong morals and values deeply rooted in my Christian faith and beliefs along with the ministers who have spoken against the possible future vote.

    The letters and articles I have read against the issue seem to say that those who are for it and/or those who drink do not have the same standards as those who choose not to drink alcohol. 

  • LETTER: A donor saved my life

    A month ago, I received the most precious gift anyone could possibly receive – a lung transplant. Money could not have bought this, only the generosity of a donor who wanted their life to mean something even after their death by saving other lives.

    Until I needed a transplant, I never knew how important it was to become a donor – or how easy it was – just sign the back of your driver’s license.

  • LETTER: Speak up now about bridge and KY 44 projects

    Fellow citizens, this is your last chance to influence the Hwy 55 Salt River Bridge Project and Hwy 44 Realignment Project.  I am sending two letters to the state highway department that outline what many in the community would like to see included with these projects.  You may or may not agree with everything but either way, you should let them know what you think.  If we do not ask for these additions they will not include them.

  • LETTER: Taxes, traffic and earning a living wage

    Why is David Jenkins grinning on the front page about his new taxes’ averting a deficit?  I have a deficit for the second straight year--partly from medical bills, but partly from the three new local taxes.

    Why hasn’t the Taylorsville floodwall been a “stimulus bill” priority like the new Louisville bus wash?  People accused Bush of being at fault when New Orleans flooded, but this decision-making will really make Obama at fault when Taylorsville floods.

  • A MATTER OF OPINION: Remembering not to forget

    Another Memorial Day has come and gone.

    It took a while, but gas grills throughout America are finally cooling down after searing all those burgers and hotdogs. Most of the lawn chairs have been put back in the garage, but someone forgot to take down their volleyball net a few streets away. It stands in the back yard as monument to the fun that was had by all.

  • LETTER: Don’t allow government to jeopardize families

    After a weekend of cookouts, picnics, reunions and hopefully taking time to remember the sacrifices of those who made it all possible, Americans have just completed another page in the scrapbook of their family history.

    The family is the bedrock of life but it’s a unit that is often under-appreciated, and maybe now more than ever, under attack. Under attack by big government, a popular culture addicted to self-gratification and forces that seek out to erode that institution rather than strengthen it.

  • LETTER: Thanks Dairy Queen for helping youth sports

    I would like to thank Bob and Dairy Queen for being a corporate sponsor for our first Bat-A-Thon fundraiser for our youth baseball association. Although the participation and interest was not what we had hoped, it was still a huge success.

    The board members and volunteers learned alot from this initial event and hope to improve on it in the years to come.

  • LETTER: Alcohol doesn’t mean prosperity

    In light of the current alcohol petition, it is time for those in Spencer County to count the cost. We must ask ourselves what is more important – a few more businesses and jobs or possibly the lives of our community’s people? Becoming a wet county may open the door for more economic stimulus but that means nothing for those who could lose their lives as a result of the freedom to buy, sell, and drink alcohol.
