Letters

  • LETTER: We need informed voters

    Dear editor,
    I always enjoy reading Ken Begley’s columns. In regard to his article “Capitalism vs. Government,” he talks about the relative lack of efficiency of the public vs. private sector. Of course, the marketplace rules, in regard to the private sector. But, the way government is supposed to work is that people are sufficiently interested/informed to vote in the best public officials and vote out the others.

  • LETTER: Support for Mark Wilkerson

    Dear editor,
    I am writing this letter to the citizens of Washington County who reside in magistrate District 3. My husband, Mark Wilkerson, is running for this position because he believes he can do a good job for the people of this county.

    He has always been a hard worker. He was a home builder for more than 35 years until some back issues forced him to stop. He believes in not “burning daylight.”

  • LETTER: Legislators dropped the ball

    Dear editor,
    Most Kentuckians overwhelmingly regard themselves as Christian and pro-life. So why did our legislators in committee again this session vote down Senate Bill 3 requiring face-to-face consultation 24 hours in advance of, and House Bill 575 and Senate Bill 8, which would have mandated an ultrasound before an abortion. These three bills would give women better understanding of the procedure and promote “informed consent” before they decide whether to terminate a pregnancy.

  • The kindness of a stranger

    Dear Editor,
    I recently encountered a selfless, anonymous person and had to let everyone, especially the people of Springfield, know that there are Good Samaritans everywhere among us.

    I recently visited a friend in Springfield to help him run an errand that he could not afford to do himself. I also didn’t know for sure if I had enough gas to get from my home (Lebanon) to Springfield and back, as I am currently broke and unemployed.

  • Readers write: Pipeline concerns

    Dear Editor:
    As distraught landowners along the proposed route for the Bluegrass hazardous liquids Pipeline, we wish to express our dismay upon finding stakes on our property on Sunday, February 16.  On two occasions, we have adamantly told the pipeline reps that we said “No” to the pipeline and did not want them on our property.

  • Readers write: Archery team needs community support

    Dear Editor:
    I was very glad to see the Washington County archery team finally get some recognition as a sport in the “On target” article in the Feb. 19 issue of The Springfield Sun. Mr. John Overby did a fine job on the article and photos.

    I think Coach Jeff Grigsby does an awesome job with these kids and I know that they have been trying to recruit more kids to be a part of this team, but that is hard to do when archery is not recognized as a sport like football, basketball, volleyball, etc. are.

  • LETTER: Church offering community meal

    Dear Editor:

  • Red Cross to hold dinner

    Dear Editor:

    The annual meeting of the local chapter of the American Red Cross serving Nelson, Marion and Washington Counties will be held on Monday, June 24, 2013.

    Dear Editor,

    My wife and I decided to stop smoking a few years back. Because cigarettes had gotten so expensive and people were putting up ‘no smoking’ signs everywhere, such as in the stores, homes, cars, etc. People that didn’t smoke would give us the ‘shame on you’ look.
