  • MY WORD: Simplifying government

    Joseph Ellis in his book “Founding Brothers” nailed it when he said, “It seems safe to say that some sort of representative government based on the principle of popular sovereignty and some form of market economy fueled by the energies of individual citizens have become the commonly accepted ingredients for natural success throughout the world.”

    How more succinctly could he put it? What is so hard to understand? What is wrong with being FREE to choose your own destiny?

    Dear Editor:

    Time and time again we hear about how the younger generation doesn’t have the same values and goals in life as they use to.  Well, we are here to tell you that we don’t agree at all.

  • WHAT WE THINK: We need to get fair

    This back and forth between the Shelbyville City Council and the Shelby County chapter of Kentuckians for the Commonwealth needs to end.

    At this point, both sides are getting tired of hearing the other speak and we’re all just spinning wheels.

    The most recent dialogue – we won’t really call it a conversation because neither side seems to be listening at this point – seemed to leave both council members and visitors exasperated.

  • WE CONGRATULATE: Our administrators, teachers and students

    As a new school year gets underway today, we want to take the time to congratulate all those involved.

    It’s no easy feat to get 11 schools, each with their own set of employees, cafeterias, maintenance crews and more, ready each year.

  • MY WORD: Royalty among the burger crowd

    A few weeks ago, a large crowd of family and friends turned out to celebrate the landmark birthday of a man whose landmark enterprise helped to feed a generation of you.

    This man in 1967 set up shop at the far eastern extreme of Shelbyville, where he began to cook up burgers and rings to feed the McDonald’s-less, fast-food-craving young masses of Shelby County, which he accomplished to an amazing level of success.

    That restaurant was Burger Queen, and its king was LaMar Nutt.
