    Teachers are protecting pension
    as part of their contract

    Last week, I read your perspective on the pension crisis. I was intrigued by your statement that you “don’t understand why” Governor’s Bevin’s ideas have angered teachers. I want to help by offering the other side of the story. Your editorial stated that many Americans will not be receiving pensions. Unfortunately, that is a sad truth. However, the Kentucky Teacher Retirement System isn’t just a pension–it is the law and a contract the state government made.

  • Supports solar energy

    It hasn’t gotten to the full House yet, but I believe this proposed legislation deserves public attention in case that it does.
    As a voter in the 53rd House district that includes Bullitt and Spencer counties, I urge you to watch the Natural Resources and Energy Committee meeting from March 5 on KET regarding solar energy production.

    Friends of Spencer Co. Animal
    Shelter begin raising funds

    I’d like to introduce everyone to our newly formed nonprofit, Friends of Spencer County Animal Shelter. We organized with the mission of helping with the care of the animals of the shelter above and beyond what the county can provide, as well as animals of the community when we can.

  • 40 Days for Life campaign brings awareness to end abortion

    I appreciated the editorial, “Do We Hear the Silent Scream?” published February 7th, about the unborn who cannot be heard. I would like to draw your attention to a world-wide effort happening during Lent 2018 that is attempting to end abortion and the suffering it causes.

    Resident thankful for help
    during recent cold spell

    I’m 75 years old and I want to thank a person for being there when I had no one to help me.
    His name is David Powell. He came a couple of years ago when David Goodlett called him to clean my long driveway that goes down hill. I couldn’t get out and no one could get in.

    What’s happening to money raised for animal shelter?

    As an animal advocate, I’m confused as to why Spencer County Fiscal Court is retaining all funds that were raised by animal shelter volunteers .  
    It was my understanding the court was “safely” holding these funds until a nonprofit was formed who would then distribute them accordingly. Now I hear the court has used this money to pay vet bills that should have been paid out of county funds as outlined in KRS 258.119.

    In response to Jim Waters’ June 8 article:

  • NRA gun policy

    Dear Editor,

    I enjoyed your article on the NRA convention and how safe it was because everyone had guns.

    I thought I heard on the news that guns and knives were not allowed in the room where our senators, our governor and Trump were speaking. What conclusion should I draw?

  • LETTER: Informed voters should support Bevin

    First let me get one thing clear: Although I am the chairman of the local Tea Party, I do not speak for the Tea Party. We simply try and inform the public of the truth.
    I have, and will escalate if need be, started an effort to inform people not to vote for those who do not deserve their vote. I will no longer vote for the skunk that smells the least. Mitch McConnell has been in Washington, D.C., 30 years and cannot run a campaign based on his accomplishments. That is sad that We the People have allowed this to happen.
