    Questioning the courts


    Even though I don’t write to the editor often, I am now because I have a concern with our judicial system in Shelby County. Attorneys from other counties have even told me that this court system is a lot like Mayberry.

    I am 100 percent in favor of “you do the crime, you do the time,” but don't you think the same crime should carry the same sentence?

    Editorial is garbage

    I have lived in Shelbyville since 1981, and I learned today one fellow writing an editorial is smarter and wiser about the betterment of Shelbyville than our elected officials. We can save tax dollars by selling city hall, abolishing the council seats, dismissing the city employees who work in city hall and simply let the wise one at The Sentinel-News operate our town (“WHAT WE THINK: City’s plan is pure garbage,” Feb. 26).

    A fair judge

    The opinion column of Rebecca Wall (“We need to judge this judge,” My Word, Feb. 12) set forth her opinion of Judge John David Myles. Her divorce was filed in 2004. The court record of her case shows it was first settled in 2004, before Judge Myles was appointed and subsequently elected. Ms. Wall had several attorneys throughout the pendency of her case and all of whom have apparently withdrawn. After the last attorney withdrew, Ms. Wall mediated her case for a second time and an agreement was reached.

    Go smoke free

    I am sure many in Shelby County have heard that there is a legislative campaign under way to pass a statewide, smoke-free law. I am one resident who supports this idea 100 percent.

    Proposed restaurant tax
    Kentucky residents are some of the most heavily taxed. Depending on which Web site you visit, we are listed as high as the fifth most heavily taxed citizens in the nation. The CNN/Money site ranks Kentucky 18th overall, considering only income, sales and excise taxes. However, Kentucky politicians are also very creative in taxing virtually every item we buy or service we use.

    This is just a note to express our gratitude to The Sentinel-News for the very good-looking and informational insert about Centro Latino. It looked just as we hoped it would. In fact, it was better than I had hoped it might be. So, here at Centro Latino, we are very pleased about the whole thing. Thanks very much for your help with this. We are truly thankful for the ability to get this letter of appreciation as well as the related information to the Shelby County community through the newspaper.

    Price of corn

    Corn delivered on Dec. 13 to an elevator in Southern Indiana by the farmer was selling for $4.24 per bushel. There is 56 pounds of corn in a bushel, which equals 7.5 cents per pound for that corn. That same day I went to Walmart on Taylorsville Road to check the price on three corn-based products:
