  • 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.

  • LETTER: Couple bids farewell to Spencer County

    Back in the fall of 1993 we were looking for a place to build our dream house. Lucky for us, we discovered Spencer County.
    We first fell in love with the beauty of Spencer County and soon after discovered the people who call Taylorsville home are even more delightful than the natural resources. From the start, we were warmly welcomed at every retail establishment, given much-needed advice on services, and formed friendships that will last for years.

  • LETTER: Christian rally at capitol a 'refreshing' day

    There were standing-room-only crowds in the House and Senate chambers Tuesday as various Christian legislators spoke up about their faith in Jesus and how this faith effects their decisions.
    Then there was a gathering in the rotunda where several ministers spoke and the songs “Amazing Grace” and “God Bless America” were sung. The weather was absolutely beautiful – our first “spring” day.

  • LETTER: Farm tag donations help support FFA

    As we get closer to April, it’s that time of year when many of us are renewing our farm license tags.   
    As many of you may not know,  individuals purchasing farm license plates in Kentucky may make a $10 donation to the state 4-H and FFA youth programs through the Kentucky Department of Agriculture. This donation is split evenly between Kentucky Proud, 4-H and FFA.
    Of the FFA portion, 50 percent stays with the State FFA Foundation and 50 percent goes to the local FFA chapter.
