    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.

    Loves horse farm tour

    It was our pleasure to be treated to a tour of a championship riding horse farm during our visit in mid-September.  I have misplaced the name of our tour guide, but he was most informative and knowledgeable. We were totally impressed with the idea that the Shelbyville Chamber of Commerce and Tourism participated in the program.

    Health-care reform


    Concerning the your My Word by Sen. Mitch McConnell (“Don’t want health-care reform,” Sept. 18), I cannot understand why someone elected by the people to represent them would be so opposed to something that will help them. Namely, health insurance.

    I have had health insurance since age 18, starting with my place of employment, then through my husband’s place of employment and then Medicare. When I was younger, I never used it, but since around age 60, it has been a lifesaver.

    Murders at Navy base
    The tragic news of this event brought back some memories. The killings occurred at the Bureau of Ship, that controls the design and construction of naval vessels. Back during WW2,  the Bureau of Ships and the Bureau of Personnel, both in that Washington D. C., naval base, were thought to be ideal duty, since it was considered a safe place, where no one was shooting at you.

    Supports schools


    Well, Mr. [Tony] Harover, I see you have expressed your opinion once again in our local newspaper (“School tax plan,” Letters to the editor, Aug. 28). While I certainly support your right to do so, I strongly disagree with your premise. To hold the superintendent and our school board hostage to your opinion is wrong thinking.
