    Mall should celebrate horses

     

    As we approach the 138th Kentucky Derby, which has amassed dozens of traditions held dear to millions of Derby fans worldwide, I want to address Horizon Group Properties’ plans for an outlet mall in Simpsonville. I live on Veechdale Road and speak for many of my neighbors.

  • A young person’s perspective in indelible ink

    In a world in which vicious vitriol is the vanguard of criticism, a hundred words could not have been more troubling, not because of what was said but because of what wasn’t said, what was missed, because of the emotion behind the letters and punctuation marks that came together to form the paragraphs.

    Shelby County Magistrate Tony Carriss calls the eastbound merge lane from KY 55 onto Interstate 64 “the most dangerous transportation issue in our county.”

    And now, in the very near future, this dangerously short strip of asphalt will receive a new and presumably safer design as part of the new state roads budget.

    We’re glad the American Saddlebred Horse Association and its members have settled their very public and divisive spat, one that threatened the stability of one of our key industries and its showplace facility at the Kentucky Horse Park.

    Wrong about
     gun laws

    The letter writer who addressed gun laws, (“The impact of gun laws, April 18), even though educated in law, seems confused regarding why guns are necessary to the law-abiding citizens.
