    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.

    The dirt on soil

    I commend you for The Sentinel-News’ exclusive on the Shelby Conservation District (“Spending Your Tax Dollars: Investing in dirt and water,” Sept. 25). I also salute Lisa King for her excellent reporting on what the conservation district does and what it means to all the citizens of the county.

    Likes school plan


    Shelby County Public Schools is embarking on a education pathway I very much approve of.

    Until now the word from the school system was we are preparing students to be college ready. Many Shelby County students that were not going to college felt they were pushed over to the side, in the corner until they could be graduated.

    That may not have been the way it was, but that for sure is the way many of the students thought it was. If you talked to them, they would tell you that is how it was.

    Property tax bills

    I am sending this correspondence in an effort to notify those persons who own real estate in Shelby County and who have not received their 2013 property tax bills that those bills were sent out the first of this month and are due and payable on or before Dec. 31. As one of the offices charged with collecting past-due property taxes, it has come to my attention that property tax bills do not always reach the appropriate property owners.

    Subpar contractors

    You must be leery of remodeling contractors, or any other contractors for that matter. I have never seen such an economy with so many people needing work, and then there are these guys who overpromise and under deliver. They take what money they can, don't finish the job and then leave.

    Appreciates support


    As a small business owner in Louisville, I feel very fortunate to be represented by such business-minded legislators as Congressman Thomas Massie and Senators Mitch McConnell and Randy Paul. They have taken a stand against the Marketplace Fairness Act, and for that I am grateful. As our legislators realize, the MFA will impose a huge burden upon small businesses like mine for a number of reasons.
