  • The Spencer Magnet recently garnered 15 Kentucky Press Association awards at the annual Excellence in Kentucky Newspapers competition, including first place General Excellence in the weekly class 2 category.

  • Mayor Don Pay has been working with local citizens and law enforcement officials to establish “Neighborhood Watch Programs” for over a year — with a goal of having programs completed throughout all of the City of Taylorsville by the end of the year.

    “I believe this will prove to be a positive deterrent to crime in our community,” said Pay. “It is that simple — when folks drive into a neighborhood with a Block Watch program they notice — and it does make a difference,” he said.

  • Over the Christmas holiday, the Spencer County service center for Seven Counties Services moved to new offices in downtown Taylorsville at 80 East Main Street, suite 4.

    For Spencer County, the relocation couldn’t have come at a better time. With the need for family and children mental health services at maximum capacity, this new location provides for expansion of services and allows for more consumers to be served. At any one time, the Taylorsville center serves more than 100 children and their families.

  • Thanks to the efforts of a history teacher at Spencer County High School, fifteen students hoping to pursue a career in education have been receiving a first-hand glimpse into what it is to impart knowledge to youngsters.

  • Five suspects — including three Taylorsville residents — are behind bars after Kentucky State Police responded to an anonymous tip last Tuesday evening leading to the discovery of two active methamphetamine production labs in the Ridgeview neighborhood.

  • Marlene Stark discovered a new favorite recipe when she opened her Southern Living magazine before Christmas. The pecans and apples in the praline apple bread drew her to the recipe.

    “I crave apples,” she said. “I love to bake during wintertime. I happened to have the ingredients on hand.”

    Stark has made the bread about 6-8 times since she came across the recipe a little over a month ago. She baked some of them in smaller aluminum pans to give to neighbors for Christmas.

  • Are you running out of things to do to entertain your children during snow days? Are you getting cabin fever and need to find something to do to change the scenery, but you can not get out of your driveway? Try planning ahead for the next snow day with these ideas.

    Have a plan before the meteorologist ever announces the first snowflake. Make sure to have all the supplies and directions for several activities already purchased and set aside for the first call of “Mooom! I’m bored!”
