Today's Opinions

  • LETTER: Thank yous for helping Carnival for a Cure

    April 25, 2009 was our first annual “Carnival for a Cure” downtown Taylorsville. I would like to thank everyone who made this event a huge sucess. All proceeds made that day benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

     First I’d like to thank the carnival committee, especially Greg and Kathy Smith, Angela Beard, Diana and Brian Viergutz, Linda and Eric Fernandez, Martha Smith, Jennifer Goodlett, Gina and Joe McGinnis, Leanna Nation and Joyce Tindall.

  • A MATTER OF OPINION: Instead, use the word Communism

    Words are very powerful tools used by people to motivate or manipulate others. For months now, the word socialism has been used liberally (pun intended) to describe the actions of Barack Obama during his first 100-plus days as president of our country.

  • LETTER: A really different view

    When something like this Wet/Dry issue comes up, I often hear that we should begin weighing the pros and cons of the matter but today I want to give you a different perspective on the idea of pros and cons.  First off a cons point of view that has come to my mind is the golf course problem, do you really want some people getting tipsy as they hit a ball around the golf course.  I mean is a slurred scream of fore really enough warning to realize you’re in the line of fire from someone swinging  a deadly nine iron with a wobbly sense of direction?  Can you imagine th

  • LETTER: Reader wants police patrols

    I just want to give my opinion of the Spencer County Sheriff’s department. I live out in the county and it is so hard to get anyone to come out here and do anything. You can call them and report a problem and they just let it blow by. I do not understand why this is happening. Are they that shorthanded that they can not cover the whole county like they are paid to do? 

  • LETTER: Thanks from TES
  • LETTER: Alcohol costs outweigh benefits

    I located here thirteen years ago from a wet county. Liquor stores are prominent. Beer and wine are now being sold in some grocery stores, restaurants, drugstores and convenient marts.

    I am now hearing the same promotional message that I heard at our town’s council meetings, “we need the money”. It was all about the money regardless of what it will do to some people morally.

  • LETTER: In support of Williams
  • LETTER: “Dry county is no safer”

    I am for Spencer County going wet. If they ever get the lodge at the lake going it will be dependant on alcohol-by-the-drink. The golf course would do much better if it were wet. If the non-drinkers think there is very little alcohol consumed in Spencer County, they would be surprised to know the reality of it. Many that enjoy a drink at home stock up on what they like. The others make small purchases and then when they run out, drive drunk to buy more and drink on the way home.
