Today's Opinions

  • 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.

  • Store loyalty cards are no bargain

    Saving money is fine by me, like I’m sure it is by most of you. But one thing I feel is not needed these days is those ridiculous little discount cards you have to carry around to buy things at most stores.

    Almost every store has them, and if you don’t use them, you’re going to pay the price. To save money at some grocery stores, you need to be a “member,” and present your saver card. If not, then the sale price advertised on TV or in the newspaper isn’t for you. Thankfully our local grocers don’t use this practice.

  • Local theatre to perform "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat"

    The Central Kentucky Community Theatre Youth Actors will present “Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” at the Opera House on the Fridays of April 30 and May 7 at 7 p.m. and on the Sundays of May 2 and May 9 at 2 p.m.

  • Readers Write: Citizens should clean up their own junk

    Dear Editor,

    I have my own opinion on “county-wide cleanup.”  I do not think this is necessary that we have a county-wide cleanup.  Is it beneficial to all of us? Well, of course, but the county didn’t help us accumulate the junk we are wanting to get rid of.  We need to dispose of our own junk in the proper way.
