Today's Opinions

  • LETTER: Taxing the joy out of Christmas
  • LETTER: Just wondering, again

    I have a few more questions about the place we love:

    Why was gas 10 cents cheaper yesterday in Shelbyville than it was here? Would it still be that way today if Cricketz didn’t lead the way lowering prices around here?

    Can the metro-McDonald’s area get us into that World Records book? Do we have the closest 8 stop signs in the world now? If not, do we have the 9 stop signs closest to a red light?

  • FROM THE CAPITOL: Time to begin working across party lines

    To many people, it must have been a remarkable picture.

    After months of bitter campaigning, President-elect Barack Obama sat next to Sen. John McCain for a meeting a few days ago. They talked at length about how they could reach across party lines to discuss – and move forward on – some of the nation’s most challenging issues.

    If they can do this on a national level, why can’t we do it in Kentucky?

  • A MATTER OF OPINION: It’s a family tradition

    Isn’t this the most wonderful time of the year?

    I simply love the Christmas season. The lights. The music. The smell of Chex Mix baking in the oven.

    Yes, you read that right. Not gingerbread or sugar cookies, but Chex Mix. It’s a tradition in my family that at the first hint of a wintry breeze, someone’s making a trip to the store for couple of cereal boxes and some Worcestershire sauce.

  • LETTER: Cover gourd

    Ordinarily, I don’t write letters to the editor, but this time I couldn’t pass it up.

    Congratulations are in order to Robin Bass for making the cover of The Gourd Magazine with her wonderful photograph. If you haven’t seen it, the magazine is available at the library, or you can order this issue “Winter 2008” from the American Gourd Society, phone number 765-453-5047.

  • LETTER: Much to be thankful for

    On Monday, November 24 the first grade classes at Taylorsville Elementary School celebrated the holiday season by reciting poems and enjoying a meal together.

    The feast brought nearly 250 first grade students and their families together. Each teacher is especially grateful for their students, families and some very special people in our community that care about our school.

  • LETTER: Football stories too negative

    I was disappointed in reading last Wednesday’s articles on our football team. Too much was spent on the negative and not enough on the positive.

     

    I, was shocked and saddened by Friday nights outcome. I feel that if the Shawnee coaches would have stepped up and made sure their players acted respectful by walking across our field and shaking hands, nothing would have taken place.

  • A MATTER OF OPINION: A center for all

    The concept of establishing a community center is one that has been batted around in conversations for several years now. Leaders, particularly those in Taylorsville, realize the need for creating a place where families could gather to socialize, learn and play – but making those dreams a reality has always come down to a lack of dollars and cents. Hopes for such a venue have been placed at the mercy of some philanthropic organization, because even with new taxes, the city and county both say they are struggling just to meet current obligations.
