Today's Opinions

  • LETTER: Life begins at conception

    With all the things going on in the world right now, there is one extremely important issue that I believe has been forgotten about by most people.

    This week marks the anniversary of the 1973 Supreme Court deceision,”Roe vs Wade”. I realize that the subject of abortion brings about very emotional responses from people on both sides of the issue, but this issue should never be put out of our minds.

    I believe that life begins at conception. In Jeremiah 1:5, scripture records, “ Before you were formed in the womb, I knew you”.

  • LETTER: Heartfelt thanks

    I am a relatively new resident of Taylorsville and would like to pass on some good news in this time of bad news for many.

    When the winter storm hit us last week, our power went out. It left us with no heat or way to cook our food. My wife and I were getting concerned and cold. The loud speaker which we heard telling us of the shelter at the hight school was great.

    I did not know many of our local city, county and state officials prior to Wednesday. but at the shelter, I got to see them all at work together - key word “together”.

  • LETTER: Neighbors helping neighbors

    We would like to thank our great friends and neighbors, the Manning family, Acker family, Schaffer family, Edwards family, Keefe family, Berry family, and all the others that have called, offered help and opened their homes, but most of all their prayers. Without you we would have not made it through.

    Editor’s note: The Williams family have been milking their 45 cows by hand twice each day since they lost power last Tuesday.

     

  • A MATTER OF OPINION: Groundhog Day redux

    Raise your hand if you were disgusted yesterday morning to find more snow and another day off from school.

  • LETTER: Contact legislatures about cigarette tax

    Kentucky lawmakers are on the verge of a crucial decision in the coming weeks – whether to support Gov. Steve Beshear’s call to raise the tax on a pack of cigarettes from 30 cents to $1. As I finish out my tenure as Kentucky’s education commissioner, I am championing that action.

  • LETTER: In response to school board editorial

    In Robin Bass’ editorial of January 14th, 2009, advocating that the preliminary discussions regarding the evaluation of the local school superintendent be conducted in public, she presented several justifications for your view. But these assertions simply do not stand up to scrutiny.

  • A MATTER OF OPINION: American idols

    While the rest of America spent the last several days focusing their attention on the inauguration of President Barack Obama, many Spencer Countians seem to have another American idol on their minds – someone right here in our own backyard.

  • LETTER: Cemetery should respect flag

    My brother, Mark Robinson, was a veteran of the United States Army. He proudly served his country and defended it to anyone with respect and vigor. Sadly, he developed a rare form and cancer and died in 2001. We buried him at Valley Cemetery,Taylorsville, Kentucky, next to the Grandparents he loved so much.
