  • Readers Write: Reader upset over racist graffiti

    Dear Editor,

    Some time between Monday night and early Tuesday morning, May 18, 2010, properties around the High Street and Main Street area were vandalized by three young men. Gold paint was used to write racial slurs on garage doors, signs, a telephone junction box and our truck.

    The N word, KKK and Nazi symbol were spray painted in large letters on items throughout town.

  • Unspoken prayers

    Sometimes it’s the silent prayers that speak the loudest.

  • The quiet soldier and the Silver Star

    We cherish too, the Poppy red

    That grows on fields where valor led,

    It seems to signal to the skies

    That blood of heroes never dies.

    Monia Michael

    Memorial Day was originally called “Decoration Day” for the soldiers that died as a result of combat.

  • Prank phone calls and caller ID

    The phone rang here at The Springfield Sun last week, and a man on the other end was trying to find out who had called him. He saw our number on the caller ID of his phone, so he called us back to see what we needed. Someone here had dialed a wrong number, and the call was dismissed without issue.

  • Readers Write: Reader enjoys a night at the local theater

    Dear Editor,

    Somewhere, someone said to look for hidden treasures in the darndest of places. That thought can be said of Springfield, Ky. Besides the historic value in and around Springfield and the wonderful dining establishments, folks in Washington County can be especially proud of a wonderful gem. It is the Central Kentucky Community Theater at the Opera House in downtown Springfield.

  • The used car salesman

    Confession is good for the soul. That is, unless you’ve done something really bad and might be sued later.

    Here’s my confession.

    Some men are Baptists, some are Methodists, and some are Catholics.  Me?  I’m a Dodge van man.

    I actually own three vans. I bought them all, including a few others along the road of life, used, and  from my main car salesman, Daniel Mattingly of Springfield.

  • Calvin Borel endears people to racing

    Ten years from now, my idea of a super saver might be one of those little loyalty thingamajigs you put on your key chain.

    Or, maybe it will be a car that will make the Smart Car look really dumb.

    But as far as a horse? Let’s just say that unless Super Saver takes the Preakness and Belmont, chances are that he’ll be like Cannonade, Sunny’s Halo and Summer Squall to many of us. We’ll remember the name when prompted, maybe even rattle off a few facts about how the horse won the Kentucky Derby.
