    Live up to the Constitution


    The drug cartels are laughing at us as we keep drugs illegal to insure their profits stay high to fuel our enemies in our own hemisphere toward the destruction of our own country. Usually by our own police and greedy officials who are rapidly destroying our U.S. Constitution with compete impunity.

    Questioning the courts


    Even though I don’t write to the editor often, I am now because I have a concern with our judicial system in Shelby County. Attorneys from other counties have even told me that this court system is a lot like Mayberry.

    I am 100 percent in favor of “you do the crime, you do the time,” but don't you think the same crime should carry the same sentence?

    Editorial is garbage

    I have lived in Shelbyville since 1981, and I learned today one fellow writing an editorial is smarter and wiser about the betterment of Shelbyville than our elected officials. We can save tax dollars by selling city hall, abolishing the council seats, dismissing the city employees who work in city hall and simply let the wise one at The Sentinel-News operate our town (“WHAT WE THINK: City’s plan is pure garbage,” Feb. 26).

    A fair judge

    The opinion column of Rebecca Wall (“We need to judge this judge,” My Word, Feb. 12) set forth her opinion of Judge John David Myles. Her divorce was filed in 2004. The court record of her case shows it was first settled in 2004, before Judge Myles was appointed and subsequently elected. Ms. Wall had several attorneys throughout the pendency of her case and all of whom have apparently withdrawn. After the last attorney withdrew, Ms. Wall mediated her case for a second time and an agreement was reached.

    Go smoke free

    I am sure many in Shelby County have heard that there is a legislative campaign under way to pass a statewide, smoke-free law. I am one resident who supports this idea 100 percent.

    We would like to commend state Sen. Paul Hornback, state Rep. Brad Montell, Simpsonville Mayor Steve Eden, City Administrator David Eaton, all of the Simpsonville residents and each and every proactive party that contacted the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet about the challenges they were encountering on Veechdale Road, which runs adjacent to The Outlet Shoppes in Simpsonville.

    Proposed restaurant tax
    Kentucky residents are some of the most heavily taxed. Depending on which Web site you visit, we are listed as high as the fifth most heavily taxed citizens in the nation. The CNN/Money site ranks Kentucky 18th overall, considering only income, sales and excise taxes. However, Kentucky politicians are also very creative in taxing virtually every item we buy or service we use.
