    Accolades for Herb Kays


    You could not grow up in Shelbyville and not know a member of the Kays family. The children had great hard-working parents and each one made a contribution in school and in church. Comments from the University of Kentucky Tennis Boosters about the passing of Dr. Herb Kays reflect the type of individual he was – and it reflects the entire family, in my book.

    About the shooting


    I just want to start by saying these things shouldn’t happen, but in the real world they do (“Teen killed in battle with police,” Nov. 23). I also want to say that the Shelbyville Police officers in question, Suzanna Marcum and Frank Willoughby, are respected in this community, especially Marcum.

    Where are those jobs?


    The headline “Are there really 400 open jobs in Shelby County?” (Nov. 18) jumped off the page at me. I was especially intrigued by this article since my son, a recent graduate of Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, is having a difficult time in finding a good job. I read the article several times, and if there are 400 open jobs in Shelby County, you couldn’t prove it by anything I read. One actual job opening, at Family Video, was mentioned in the article.

    Is this Christianity?


    For months I have read the war of ideas between Ms. Linda Allewalt and Mr. Chuck Souder. That’s what it was – a war of ideas – not personal attacks like letter writer Mr. Sonny Malone (“Misguided passion,” Oct. 26).

    Animal control issues


    Tracy Miller of Speak Out And Rescue wrote this evaluation of animal control issues in Shelby County:

    “I visited Shelby County on Friday to take a look at some of the dogs chained in that county. There are some folks there who want “chain-ge,” and hopefully steps will be taken to put a law in place to stop this cruel practice. With the Shelby County ‘NO KILL’ mission, one would hope there would be support for such a law.

    ‘Deceitful’ treatment

    Last week my family adopted a puppy from the Shelby County Animal Shelter. They 

    said the fee was $65. This was to include her first set of shots, spay and  microchip.

    She had her first vet appointment today. The only info we had to give the vets office was a single piece of paper with hardly any info on it. It does however say that she was given her first set of shots.
