Today's Opinions

  • LETTER: Lady Bear pride

    “1,2,3 PRIDE!” is something the Lady Bears basketball team has been saying for years. We say this because we have pride in ourselves, each other, and most importantly our team.

  • LETTER: New memories being made at the Sanctuary

    On the second Saturday and fourth Friday monthly our neighbors and friends John and Judy Shircliff open their doors to the community.

    They are the proud new owners of the old building across from Smitty’s, as we all call, it on Main Street in Taylorsville.

  • LETTER: Project Graduation, for the safety of kids

    I am writing this letter to inform the Community of Taylorsville that April is Alcohol Awareness Month. Spring is just days away now, high school seniors are winding down and thoughts now turn to celebrating those achievements and many will feel pressure to drink alcohol during prom and graduation night activities.

  • LETTER: Time to spiff up Spencer County

    The statewide Spring cleaning week, March 21-28, gives every county the opportunity to spruce up their county for the anticipated summer visitors. We want Spencer County to look spiffy to encourage people to tell their friends and family how great Spencer County is. We have some prime areas for viewing nature here in our county. It is a shame if the view is obstructed by trash and litter.

  • A MATTER OF OPINION: In need of good news

    Last week, when the stock market jumped 300 points and some analysts claimed that the end of the recession was near, I felt my heart skip a happy beat. How wonderful it was to hear good news for a change. Instead of the steady drumbeat of low quarterly-revenues and high unemployment, here was finally some hope for better days ahead. It made me realize how hungry I was, and perhaps many of you are too, for positive reports in the media.

  • BUSINESS MATTERS: Ad contest benefits all

    Much more was gained during our recent Logos & Slogans Contest than the monies awarded to our four contest winners. Fortunately, I had the chance to talk with many of the people who were involved in this promotion from the business owner, to some who entered the contest, and finally to the four prize winners. By the end of the contest, I had heard quite a lot and most of what I heard was very positive.

  • Neglected pets need intervention
