    Veechdale repairs

Brad Montell, Simpsonville Mayor Steve Eden, City Administrator David Eaton, all of the Simpsonville residents and each and every proactive party that contacted the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet about the challenges they were encountering on Veechdale Road, which runs adjacent to The Outlet Shoppes in Simpsonville.

    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.

    Bypass traffic

    While driving Freedom’s Way (aka the bypass) daily, I find myself time for musing a bit. What if the southbound lane intersection at U.S. 60 had a right-turn-only lane going west? There are three lanes. One could be for the left turn, one straight and one right.

    So many times I have watched a line of cars in the right-hand lane with turn signals on waiting, waiting, waiting behind one car, which happens to be going straight. You cannot get past that car because of an ungodly curb buildup. Conceivably to deter doing so?

    McConnell no friend

    Sen. Mitch McConnell, as usual, let his anti-worker attitude show through by supporting a national right-to-work bill. I’m not surprised as he is paid big bucks by companies, who don’t want to pay their employees good wages and benefits.

    Good cooperation

    Illicit street and prescribed drugs have pervaded the institution of our city, county, state and nation. The result of these beasts have destroyed people, families and the advancement of basic productive responsibilities of life.
