Clean up litter in Taylor County

As children, how many of us were not taught to pick up after ourselves, to clean up our surroundings and to take pride in completion of the tasks?

Many evenings lately I have been taking my dog, Macie, for walks on my neighborhood streets. As we walk, I am repeatedly shocked by the amount of litter that is thrown onto the streets and curbs. Water bottles, soft drink cans, fast food wrappers and cigarette packages are the most common items. I have expressed my concerns about this mess to many, and the common response is that people simply do not care.

Recipient gives thanks to Impact Taylor County

What [the members and volunteers of Impact Taylor County] did for the people of this area was a blessing. I love my door and knowing the floor is fixed where the rain had come in. This [letter] can’t express enough for what this means to me.

A letter to the Editor by Tim Jones

City is violating employees' rights

I just read the article about the city approving a policy limiting employee social media use. I found many components of the “policy” interesting.

For instance, a city employee posting a complaint about someone (i.e. a supervisor) or an issue within the city could result in disciplinary action. City Attorney John Miller said he believes the policy states that, “posting that information would be inappropriate.”

We must keep growing and learning

While watching a graduation commencement, it occurred to me how similar graduation and retirement are. Most of the graduates were being asked what are you going to do after graduation. Quite often, acquaintances ask me what are you going to do after retirement? I usually respond by saying, “Retire from what? I’m doing what I like to do.”

Campbellsville Police encourage seatbelt use

For anyone who complains about getting a ticket for not buckling up when driving or riding in a motor vehicle, here’s a crash course in reality:
• 721 people were killed on Kentucky’s roadways in 2011.
• 58 percent of those killed were not wearing a seat belt.
• When worn correctly, seat belts are proven to reduce the risk of fatal injury to front-seat occupants by 45 percent and by 60 percent in pickup trucks, SUVs and minivans.

A letter to the Editor by Elroy Riggs

Reader talks about Friday superstitions

As I’m writing this on Friday the 13th, I was thinking about the slogan “TGIF.”
Today those words are good news. The end of the work week. But once upon a time, “It’s Friday” was among the least auspicious things you could say. Friday was considered completely unlucky. Not only a Friday occurring on the 13th of the month, but any Friday.

Reader approves of new meth bill

In the April 2 newspaper, under the Local Briefs section, there was an article about the anti-meth bill that is in the process of being passed. I feel that the Local Brief section gives a positive impact to the newspaper by educating the readers about what is happening with the government.

Former cleaning contractor upset with library change

On Monday, March 12, CKNJ wrote an article about a Taylor County Public Library board meeting. The paper printed that they had hired a new cleaning person. Well, that was a shocker since we knew nothing about it. But that afternoon, I get a call from the new librarian saying that wasn’t true what the paper printed. Well, I say OK since I had no reason not to believe it.
