    Charter schools hurt public education

    Dear Editor:

    It never ceases to amaze me the silly bills some legislatures want to get passed with false information.

    Take the one about starting charter schools. You cannot improve education by taking money out of a system to start a new system. This will just weaken the current system more.

    Privatizing schools in other states has not worked. It’s true some schools are not up to par but that could be corrected by putting more money into the school system.

  • WHAT WE THINK: Vacant dealership is an entry eyesore

    More than six months ago Shelby County lost one of its major auto dealers when the Jeff Wyler Group closed the doors on its Chevrolet Buick GMC dealership on the west end of Shelbyville.

    Located on Taylorsville Road the site had long since been an auto dealer, welcoming patrons into Shelbyville on one of our busiest roads.

    Now the lot still sits empty, begging for another dealership to meet our needs.

    Helping the city’s premier event

    After reading the Wednesday, Jan. 20 editorial “What We Think: Dividing up the tourism tax so we all get a bite” in The Sentinel-Newsregarding the use of the tourism taxes, please consider helping with the expenses of the one event that showcases all of Shelbyville and Shelby County –The Shelbyville Horse Show.

    This show is supported by the community, but never breaks even with the expenses.

  • WHAT WE THINK: Mt. Eden Road development a step in the right direction

    We are happy to see two new developments planned for the east side of Shelbyville on Mount Eden Road.

    As a main entrance to our county seat, our zoning commission has approved a solid plan for those looking to build here, and we believe some expansion on the east side is certainly warranted.

    Although more would be needed to create a perfect balance between the east and west sides of the city, and even the county, we see this as a solid start.
