    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 Wall had several attorneys throughout the pendency of her case and all of whom have apparently withdrawn.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:

    Library’s plans

    Your recent editorial about wisely spending our taxes had some very good points, but your critique of the library was not very well thought out (“How our tax dollars could be used better,” Dec. 11). You seem to assume that books will be obsolete in the near future and that books are the only reason for a library’s existence.

    Donate life

    As we gather with family during the holiday, many of us wish to give back and help others. Often, we struggle to find the time and means to do so. However, this Christmas, there is something everyone can do that costs nothing, takes less than a minute and gives hope to thousands of children, adults and their families in need.
