    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.

  • WHAT WE THINK: Lets give fairness a fair shake

    If there is one thing we believe in, it’s the Golden Rule.

    Treat others the way you would like to be treated.

    Such a simple decree, but if everyone followed it could you imagine what a wonderful world we would live in?

    That’s why we just can’t understand the Shelbyville City Council’s refusal to act on or even publicly discuss the request for a Fairness Ordinance from the Shelby County chapter of Kentuckians for the Commonwealth.

  • WE CONGRATULATE: Simpsonville recognizes growth, impact it can have on residents

    Last week the Simpsonville City Commission did something that very few governments consider – they chose to lower taxes.

    The 10.2 percent decrease in property taxes will be a welcome reprieve for residents, but we really commend the commissioners for their progressive outlook.

    Recognizing the commercial growth that is coming their way, the commission realized the windfall in taxes they were about to receive. And instead of instantly looking to see where that money would best be spent they took a minute to see how it could best be used.

  • WHAT WE THINK: Is it time to revisit a local smoking ban?

    As CVS drugstores move to remove cigarettes from their shelves this fall, we think it’s time for our city and county officials to start thinking the same way.

    CVS officials cited a moral responsibility for making the change.

    “Ending the sale of cigarettes and tobacco products at CVS pharmacy is the right thing to do for our customers and our company to help people on their path to better health,” said Larry J. Merlo, president and CEO of CVS Caremark.
