    Proud of Kentucky


    The majority of the citizens of this commonwealth saw the national election and its many issues as I saw them. This must be the case because they felt the present administration did not in the past address the over-riding important issues as they promised. The majority of their votes reflected this clearly.

    School officials doing their best


    As retired teacher with 34 years of experience in the Shelby County Public Schools and as the current chair of the Shelby County Education PAC, I would like to state confidence in the board of education, administration, teachers, parents and, most importantly, students of Shelby County Public Schools in taking the district in the right direction. Although test scores may appear different than they have in the past, we are still on the road to progressing to total proficiency for all.

    Obey traffic laws


    I read with interest Glen Meyers statement in The Sentinel-News(“Do we need more traffic signals on the bypass?,” Sept. 26), regarding more lights on the bypass and one at Smithfield-Harrington Mill Roads. I have lived on Smithfield Road for 32 years, and the roads from the fairgrounds to the bypass have increased in congestion in the past 10 years with subdivisions and two schools being built.

    Clarifying candidates


    Just a little clarification to Austin Redmon’s My Word (“Showing up is everything,” Sept. 26): True if the Farm Bureau Congressional Forum had taken place, that would be one of the few times many Shelby Countians would have seen Bill Adkins and Thomas Massie together. All the candidates were together for a FB forum in Northern Kentucky before the primary. Anyone could have made the trip.

    School board needs efficiency

    At the end of an article in The Sentinel-News (“Shelby County School Board 2012-13 budget to be reviewed,” Sept. 26) was a section titled “Finance committee.” In case you didn’t get the chance to read the article, the finance committee was created in 2006, and, according to Superintendent [James] Neihof, disbanding it did not have to be on the agenda because the committee “was created out of a board discussion, not a board action item.”

    How did we forget 9/11?


    How is it we have become so desensitized as a community to the most heinous act of terrorism on American soil that we are no longer publicly memorializing the lives of the 3,000 victims lost on 9/11/01, andthe countless acts of heroism shown by American citizens (who continue to fight for our safety in the Middle East as a direct result of this event)? Wake up, Shelbyville!

    School board decisions


    Concerning the recent vote change at the Shelby County School Board meeting, I was surprised the two members changed their votes. Common sense would tell you the average person is now struggling to make ends meet. We need zero tax increases in a time like this. The board can get their stimulus money anytime they wish with only five people. I do appreciate Allen Phillips for having the backbone to vote his own mind and by not being persuaded by a lawyer.
