    What Miller wanted

    I had attended the Fiscal Court meeting last Tuesday evening and hoped to say a few words about the proposed zoning change on Kentucky Street. Unfortunately the magistrates decided not to arrange for that to occur, so I wish to share briefly what I would have said.

    Zone change would be wrong


    EDITOR’S NOTE:This letter was not received in time to publish before Fiscal Court’s meeting about the zone request.

    Kidwell: This is personal

    Re: The My Word article written by Mr. Clint Silver (“Collins High School….,” Aug. 24):

    First and foremost, let me state that it has never been my practice to respond to such letters. I have always believed that taking such criticism is part of the package with such public jobs. However, I feel I must reply this time as the attack was more personal than professional and involves one of my children.

    Dangerous dogs

    I am worried for the safety of my mom. We live on Old Finchville Road, and there are packs of dogs running around our street. My mom lives 2 houses down from me and is scared to even walk to her mailbox.

    Great opportunity

    One year ago, I was given the chance to learn more about my community while also giving back. Thanks to the AmeriCorps, I’ve been working as a community disaster coordinator for the American Red Cross in Shelby and Henry counties.

    A new budget plan

    There is plenty of blame to go round for the protracted, embarrassing performance of our elected officials during the recent debt ceiling debate. The kamikaze tactics of the tea party crowd deserve special mention. However, to their credit, these folks did get me to take a new look at the federal bureaucracy and where significant savings might be realized.

    Ethington a good man


    A lot to do about nothing and the rest of the story regarding Donnie Ethington.

    I first want to say I respect our hometown paper and the great service it provides this community. As a 40-plus-year subscriber, I look forward to reading it three times a week. Recent articles inspire me to write and stand up for Donnie Ethington.

    Thanks to health fair contributors

    Local physicians and planners for the 11th annual Men’s Health Fair deserve a pat on the back. On June 11, the group came together at Jewish Hospital Shelbyville to serve over 200 men from  Shelby, Henry and Spencer counties with a variety of free health screenings – screenings that have proven to save lives.

    Don’t take from academics

    $360,682: What can that do for the world?  Before school ended in Shelbyville, it was found in the budgets of math, science, history, English and other educational programs to better our students’ lives. Tragically, now, it can pay to temporarily fix a terminally ill football field.
