    Marriage equality not for Gov. to decide

     

    In my opinion, Governor Steve Beshear has no business pursuing the Same Sex Marriage appeal.  It is a personal issue that does not concern or affect anyone except those choosing to be married.

    I’m glad he did not choose my partner in life.  My question to you is “would you want someone else to choose yours”? 

  • WHAT WE THINK: Do bus drivers need more training?

    Based on the number of phone calls we have received, we’re not the only ones upset that Shelby County Public Schools did not seem to do more to punish Garnetta Stivers, the bus driver that allowed two students to walk home the morning of May 5.

    Several parents called our offices asking why more wasn’t done and how this happened.

    Our simple answer – We don’t know.

  • WE SUPPORT: The idea to make the county wet

    All it took was bringing in a distillery that immediately left, but we believe our county officials are truly ready to get the ball rolling to make our county wet. And to that we say thank you.

    Too many businesses have come in and requested annexation into Shelbyville simply so they could sell packaged alcohol.

    We are not opposed to property owners having the ability to be annexed into the city, but something as simple and silly as the ability to offer sell packaged drinks doesn’t seem like a good enough reason to us.

  • NEIHOF: Helping students find a purpose

    Eighty-seven percent of teens recently reported on a Gallup Youth Survey that their lives have an overall purpose, and a powerful impulse to serve other people and society as a whole pervades many of the comments of those interviewed.

  • MY WORD: Don’t label conservatives

    Because I label myself a conservative you probably automatically assume I’m a card-carrying member of the NRA.

    Wrong. Don’t own a firearm. Not particularly fond of the taste of wild game and Dad forcefully once made the point I should never kill anything I wasn’t going to eat unless it was trying to eat me. There is nothing in our home worth killing someone to prevent its theft—except us. That’s where we draw the line.
